Captain America: TFA Scribes Reassure the Sequel Occurs "Primarily" in Present-day!
Further promoting the DVD and Blu-ray release of Captain America: The First Avenger, screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely open up a bit on the sequel! Check it out!
Learning yesterday from the screenwriters that an outline for the sequel to Marvel's Joe Johnston-directed Captain America: The First Avenger movie has been submitted, and that the villain was gonna be "crazy," according to 'Dum Dum Dugan' actor Neal Mcdonough, the following news should come as no surprise. Anyhow, chatting with TheHDRoom, scribes Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely ressured the sequel takes place in modern times, primarily.
SM - "I think it's safe for us to say that it's primarily set in the modern day. That seems to have been the biggest question people have been wondering about regarding the sequel. Most people know the story of Captain America as the story of this man out of time, and because The Avengers is such a big movie, and because [Avengers director] Joss Whedon has so many moving pieces, we've been left with room to explore Cap entering the modern day wondering, "What is all this? What's happened to the world" and so on."
CM - "We made a movie where the world was in context for Steve Rogers. It was a movie where it was a more pure time, where there were clearly black-and-white, right-and-wrong, good-and-evil scenarios. And Cap is a guy who symbolizes that. Now he's in the now, and there is nothing black-and-white. So what do you do with that guy? How does he react to a much more uncertain time? So you're given this huge new palate to work with, but you can keep him the same."
From what we know about The Avengers so far, I think it's safe to say the Captain America sequel could explore the fact that everyone he knows from the WW2 era aren't exactly dead; like Steve Rogers thinks in The Avengers. Whether those people are the Howling Commandos, or the more likely elderly Peggy Carter, and Bucky as the Winter Soldier. What do you think?
Captain America: The First Avenger focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, the film hits shelves on Dvd and blu-ray October 25, 2011.
