Captain America 2Chris Evans As Captain America In 'The Winter Soldier'

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick-up where Marvel's The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C," read a statement. Meanwhile, we know that Samuel L Jackson is retuning as Nick Fury and Hollywood veteran Robert Redford has signed on to play a senior SHEILD leader. It's shaping up to be a pretty strong cast, with Emily VanCamo, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie bolstering the supporting end of things. A tentative release date of April 2, 2014 has been pencilled in, though there's every chance Mravel and the Russo's will make the deadline. 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will come after the next Iron Man and Thor movies, as Marvel attempt to take over the movie world. The Avengers 2 will follow in May 2015. 

The first Captain America movie grossed over $368 million at the box-office following its release in July 2011. The character is the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a frail young man who was initially enhanced to peak human perfection in order to aid the United States government in their efforts to win World War II.
