A CAPTAIN AMERICA Sequel Already In The Works?

 


Nordling here.
 
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but Latino Review is reporting today that the screenwriters for the first CAPTAIN AMERICA film, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, have already been hired by Marvel to pen the sequel.  I'm assuming that feedback from the Super Bowl trailer's been tremendous, and since the character's not going anywhere with the first film and THE AVENGERS on the horizon, it makes sense to get these guys booked now and not later.
 
No word on whether or not it takes place modern day or in World War II.  I'm actually hoping for the latter.  Sure, we know how the first film's likely going to end, but who's to say there aren't more adventures between the climax of the first film and the Rogersicle?  I haven't read the script, so I don't know.  It may lead directly to the freezing.  But if it doesn't, Cap's war years would definitely be fun to explore, especially with Ed Brubaker's retconning of Bucky Barnes, as it looks like it's that iteration of the character we're getting in THE FIRST AVENGER.  Either way, Captain America fans should be very happy indeed.
 
Nordling, out.

    Has to be present day...

    by Desk

    Because as much as I now like the look of the WW2-era setting, there's not going to be much suspense when a revived Cap is running around in The Avengers, set in 2012. How about some neat, extended flashback sequences, or something?

  • Feb. 11, 2011, 12:48 p.m. CST

    First Cap movie better NOT end with the freezing...

    by D.Vader

    Unless there is a substantial amount of time between the creation of Cap and the freezing at the end. There needs to be yeaaaaars worth of WWII material to cover.

    I'd actually consider a "Highlander" type structure...

    by Chewtoy

    Give me present-day Cap dealing with a modern day Baron Helmut Zemo interwoven with flashbacks to his conflict with his ancestor Baron Heinrich Zemo in the War. (I know Heinrich survived until the 60's in the comics, but not everyone needs to have an artificially extended long life... plus ancestor Helmut made good on the Baron's name with the Thunderbolts.) This is assuming, of course, that they were smart enough to leave some unexplored missions in the first Cap film. I know they're showing his start, and presumably him being frozen, but hopefully it's not story straight through from one to the other... Even a montage of newspaper headlines showing his exploits and growing fame would leave an opening. And as for staying power, I'd say Cap's 70 years holds up pretty well against Superman's 73.

  • Feb. 11, 2011, 1:05 p.m. CST

    We don't know how it will end...

    by MWGallaher

    ...but it's easy enough to guess. No freezing. Cap will be transported through time via the Cosmic Cube as part of the climax of their battle. Why else introduce such a science fiction-y device into the film if not to explain the time travel to an audience too sophisticated to accept the improbable ice cube suspended animation?

    Oh wait, that rule was broken.

  • Feb. 11, 2011, 1:13 p.m. CST

    The audience wouldn't accept suspended animation...

    by Chewtoy

    But will accept a tiny, skinny guy being put into an electric coffin and gaining 100 lbs of muscle mass in seconds? I think the people lining up for this are willing to meet some pretty outlandish premises halfway. Yeah, they may indeed come up with a more elaborate method of putting Cap in suspended animation, but my guess is he's going to get frozen for the better part of 70 years instead of time travel. This is reinforced by the Hulk extra that showed a frozen Cap as well as the SHIELD map in Iron Man 2 that had a point of interest marked in the artic. It seems pretty clear that their intent is to have Cap discovered in the ice. When they're ready to introduce time travel, they'll start dropping hints about Kang... and personally, I think that's something they should start doing in the first Avengers movie. No Kang appearance yet, just nods to oddities and inconsistencies in the timeline.

    might be both...

    by MWGallaher

    time travel *and* freezing, but it's most likely that Steve's trip to the 21st century will follow directly from events in the climax of the film. That is, it's very unlikely that they'd tell the story of Cap v. Skull, and then tack on an unrelated bit that relates how Cap got frozen years later; that'd be way too disjointed, it seems to me. I'd bet that there will be no room for more WWII adventures: the time shift will be a consequence of the climactic encounter. Since they've already got the Cosmic Cube in play (and since they have to show it doing something suitably "cosmic" at some point in the film, most likely in the climactic scenes), it would seem the Cube is the most efficient tool to use (rather than set up some excuse for Steve to get popsicled). They're certainly not committed to deleted Hulk scenes, nor to an Easter egg map in Iron Man, but if they wanted to preserve a stronger link to the classic version of the story, the Cube could transport him from WWII Europe into the center of a glacier in 2011.

    Amoeba productions presents: Captain America - the real story

    by Dirk_The_Amoeba

    66 years ago, a skinny, 4F reject is walking slowly out of an Army recruiting center. Rejected yet again, his only hope of seeing action in Europe would be to disguise himself as a transvestite and fuck drunk horny sailors. He dismisses that thought – although not too quickly. When suddenly, he is confronted by a four star General and two white coated evil looking old men. The General pulls him into an empty office and wastes no time saying ‘Rogers, you’re a waste of skin, the only way you would see action in Europe is if you put on a skirt and wig, shaved your legs, and bent over in front of some drunk sailors. But, I can change that. These men here are scientists and we have a proposition for you! Don’t look at me like that, I aint talking that kind of proposition you prevert! These men have invented a super soldier formula that can turn you into the greatest fighting weapon ever created by man. But it’s dangerous, and stupid, it could kill you and might make your testicles shrink. We want you to volunteer. But it you don’t we will kill you on the spot because this is top secret. You have five seconds to decide, and four are already gone. ‘ I’ll do it!’ Rogers screams, just as the General was cocking his 45. ‘Shit’, the General mutters under his breath. ‘Oh well, Lucy I’ll get you another one soon baby, don’t you worry. I’ll get you another one soon.’ The four sped off and arrived at the lab, which is nothing more than a converted barn. It has one inhabitant, the famed racing stallion War Admiral. He does not look happy. The taller scientist spoke ‘You may be asking, vy are ve in a barn?’ Rogers, did not question why the lab was in a barn, but he did wonder why the scientist spoke with such strange accent. ‘Oh, dis is how everyone in vishconin shpeaks! So, the reason vy ve are in a barn is because the formula needed to be kree-aaated in an animal, und a horse was ze best choice. But to get ze formula from ze horse into a hooman, requires, that you must drink ze formula straight from ze horse!’ ‘Drink from a horse?’ Rogers thought, ‘What? How?’, ‘vell’ the shorter scientist said, the best und only way is to drink straight from ze horses um, tallyvacker! Ya. You must suck ze formula straight from ze horses, um shvantz!’ Rogers was about to run away, when the General pulled out his 45 and began muttering, ‘soon Lucy, very soon’, then he stroked the pistol in a very loving way, Rogers immediately began sucking on war Admirals, shvantz, and the horse did what horses do, he erupted, and as Rogers gobbled down the super serum, he felt an immediate change come over him. The shorter scientist said under his breath ‘ Villy, you know ve could haf jest given him an injection’. The taller one replied. ‘ya, volfie, but it vould not be as funny!’

  • Feb. 11, 2011, 2:22 p.m. CST

    mwgallaher: I agree with a lot of that...

    by Chewtoy

    I do think the film will climax with his last moments "alive" in the 40's, only to have him wake up in present day. I'm just hoping that, rather than one, uninterrupted adventure, they allow for some passage of time in the middle. Have Cap first exposed to the world at large, then... hell, give us a montage of Cap and the Howling commandos kicking ass on multiple missions. Spinning newspapers with headlines like "Cap Busts Nazi Spy Ring!" and ones that update us on the progress of the war. Show them hunting for the Red Skull but always being a few steps behind him. Or something far less cliche'... Whatever... Pick up the story again with a more war-weary and experienced Captain America as they finally get the lead to catch up to the Skull and then charge through to the final confrontation. There are plenty of ways various War films have covered their characters through years of the war to show how they came in as raw recruits and left as grizzled veterans. Such an approach would leave the chance to revisit WWII for flashbacks to those unseen missions. I also readily believe that you're right, and that the cosmic cube and/or its destruction will directly cause Cap's freezing... I'm just betting they *will* freeze him and dump his body in the artic, though.

    by Astronut

    I swear to god I saw several preview clips a couple of months ago and was not impressed — but after watching the show a couple of times I could not believe how really, really good it is! The voice acting is 5-star... the plot-lines are pretty great... and there are constant nods to, and appearances of, 3rd and 4th tier characters... they even have villains like Zzzaxx, Ultron, Kang, etc. All kinds of crazy shit going on! Check it out if you don't believe me — the show kicks serious ass!!

    Captain America fanboy reviews in 5 months.....

    by Quake II

    The World War 2 stuff was decent enough but rather bloodless with no sense of peril. The Red Skull's plan was absurd and kinda took me out of the film. Hugo Weaving did a good job but the final fight scene between the Skull and Cap was poorly edited and hard to follow. The lack of actual Nazis in the movie was a major letdown and obviously due to excecutive and toy company meddling. The costume looked alright but the voice just didn't do it for me. This wasn't the Steve Rogers I grew up with. Tommy Lee Jones was underused and his character was nothing more than a cameo. The shield looked good but he should have thrown it more. Cap falling into the ocean at the end was a weak way to close the film as I was hoping for more World War 2 stuff in the sequel. Joe Johnston proves once more that he's a bland director that plays it safe every time. SPOILER: Stay through the end credits to see Cap's frozen body being discoverd by a modern day helicopter crew.

    by Stalkeye

    Yeah, Cap wasn't in the top 20's during the 80's and 90's mostly because the masses flocked to buy every X-men comic (spin offs,etc.) that was out. However, the Comic had great runs from the Mike Zeck era to Mark Gruenwald's entertaining stories. (John Walker=Captain American Psycho.) I'm sure between the noted exceptions of Swamp Thing,MiracleMan,etc there was alot of books that did not deserve the top 20 spot IMO.

    ... with Captain America being found in modern times.

    If it weren't for the fact that DC/WB consistently, CONSISTENTLY, kick Marvels ass in the animated arena. Both in quality of writing and in animation.

    Cap doing the beach scene from Saving Private Ryan ..BY HIMSELF.

    by yamayama

    Seriously. How do you make a sequel that outshines the original? Have the shoot co-ordinator who organised Spielberg's beach scene from Private Ryan do the battle scenes for the Captain America sequel. I want to see Captain America kick the ass of a full squadron of nazis at Dunkirk. Best way to visualise it is like Brad Pitt's Achilles in Troy storming the beach by himself. Except its Captain America. And with guns. Even Michael Bay & his CGI cumshot team would be in awe of this. Make it happen Marvel!!

    e-yup it was good! And re: your comparison to JLU, I agree with you 100% on that as well. I think I was hesitant to follow the new Avengers cartoon for two reasons. 1) I rarely watch animated hero shows and 2) I did not really like the inferior character designs (when compared to JLU and Bruce Timm's work in general) But my interest increased dramatically once I watched a couple of episodes and saw what they were doing plot-wise and the constant appearance of oddball characters. I'm a Marvel fan — primarily of work from the years 1972 - the early 80's. So I'm kinda old. But I am someone who can really appreciate what they are doing with this new Avengers series... can't wait for Ultron to come unglued and go crazy! Also hoping this thing runs long enough for them to introduce the Vision and Scarlet Witch. Oh man. What I would give........

    Great news! My picks for villians(s) for Pre/Post WW2 sequel.

    by Ivan_Mtl

    I'm very happy to hear that Captain America will be getting a sequel. Even though I am a Canadian, I've always loved the character. He has the best aspects of Batman and Superman combined. He's basically just an ordinary man who uses his brain and skills like Batman (with his shield being the equivalent of Batman's batarangs), but also shares the "Truth, Justice and the American Way" patriotism of Superman. I will say that I would prefer the sequel to be set during World War II, and if this is the case, the most logical villain(s) would be Baron Zemo or Baron Blood (as a response to Twilight fans to show them what a movie vampire should look like). If, however, the filmmakers choose to set it in the modern world, then my vote would be for Madame Hydra and the Serpent Society or the Hate Monger - if only for the final reveal of his identity. Oh, and the race issues would be a great way to introduce the Falcon. What would you like to see?

    It actually seems like that shot of Cap and the Howling Commandos barging through a doorway in the trailer is from a montage. It just seemed a little more stylized than some of the other shots. I hope this is the case because I want the tone to be a little more "real" than that shot. And like it's been said, a montage opens up room for more WWII adventures for the Cap sequels.

    I say ixnay on the Winter Soldier storyline

    by deelzbub

    maybe an unpopular opinion, but I feel bringing Bucky back erases all of Cap's guilt over his death and makes for a less interesting Cap.

    Isn't GI Joe getting a sequel?

    by brobdingnag

    Interesting story about that. The night before a friend is shipping of to Afghanistan our group of friends decides to get dinner and see a movie. These imbeciles decided on GI Joe for fucks sake and then gave me shit when I refused to join in and see the movie when our buddy was leaving the next day. Two days latter every one of them was emailing me telling me how right I was. The 30 seconds of the Captain America commercial were no doubt worth more than that entire pile of banality. Will the movie be awesome? It depends on the acting, it all comes down to the acting but the ad was very good. I'm still concerned about the lack of Nazis and the the typical Hollywood PC horse shit but at least it has a chance to be good.

    I'd rather see his adventures in the War World II era. It works for Indiana Jones, Doc Savage. But from what I seen so far, the technology being portrayed isn't believable for that period.

    by Stalkeye

    On the contrary, Marvel has upped the ante when it comes to their animated intellectual properties.If not the Avengers, how about the Marvel Animes that are currently aired in Japan?(each segment story arc consists of marvel characters such as IronMan, Wolverine,Blade and X-Men.)The series is of high quality animation courtesy of studio madhouse and the stories, well not as good as Timm's/mcduffle's JLU stuff, the action and plotlines are more than suitable for a Marvel fan as well as an Otaku. I have seen the 12 eps of Ironman anime and am now watching the Wolverine arc. 2011 will be known as the year of the Marvel fan.from Animes,Movies to the long awaited Marvel vs Capcom 3.Speaking of Capcom, nice user id ya got there Claire.

    Capt 2 - Capt America is temporarily thawed for Vietnam

    by Larry Knowles

    I have it on good authority that the sequel will during the Vietnam war. He is discovered in the ice, thawed, and is sent to Vietnam to help rally support for the war. But culture has changed and popular opinion has turn against him. It is a dark period for Captain America as this is the middle chapter of what will become his trilogy. Also, Harry, I think you still have my Boba Fett. If you could just mail him to me, I would appreciate that. I love you, Larry.

  • Or a magical swirling ass. He likes those too. Ever notice how he obsesses over a single aspect of the film and tends to ignore the big picture?

  • Feb. 12, 2011, 10:12 a.m. CST

    by MWGallaher

    Obviously, they could write a script in which Cap is frozen, just like in the comics, after riding atop a launched nuke and falling into the arctic. They could, but I'm betting they didn't. The cosmic cube is in this film, established fact. The cube has to do something appropriately *cosmic*, and the cube has to figure into the climax of the film. Well, not really, it doesn't *have* to do any of those things at all, but by any standards of scriptcraft, it *should*. Purely as a matter of economy of storytelling, if you've set up this reality-altering device, why introduce a potentially ridiculous-looking ICBM-bronco-busting ride into a glacier when you've already got a tool in play that can accomplish the goal?

    Thor

    by deelzbub

    Asgard looks awesome, Odin looks cool, Destroyer looks incredible. The guy playing Thor, as good as can be expected. Leaving out the "thees", "verily" and "Midgard" Shakespearean lingo that lots of folks thought would sound silly, you are left with a muscular guy from Fresno. The problem is, releasing two, or even three Marvel movies in the spring/summer months, comparisons will be made, and one will come up last.

    Methinks the only reason Brubaker's Cap was referenced at all, is because it was in recent memory. Let some time pass, and it will be forgotten like a fever dream

    by V'Shael

    could have Cosmic cube and frozen in glacier. <p> It would be very cool if they used the Red Skull's discovery of Bifrost and a Frost Giant coming into our world, as both a tie-in to Thor (explaining why the link between Asguard and Midguard is working again after 1000 years) and a more reasonable explanation as to how Cap could be frozen than sitting on a missile in the Arctic.

    Brus Cap

    by MrBisley

    I guess it didn't have enough splosions or Cap Red and Cap Green for the kiddies. Where are the scantily clad ladies with tatas that defy physics? Anyone with a sliver of intelligence can see that his run has been the best written Cap run ever. Is it a victim of decompression? Sure, but not as bad as Bendis or Fraction, and its certainly better written.

    The climax of the film has to have three characters...

    by Chewtoy

    Cap, Skull and Bucky. A missile is possible, but my best guess right now is that that giant flying wing is the Skull's plane, and that the climax will take place on it as it's airborne. We'll have to see what the cube does, but I could easily see the destruction of it throwing Cap from the plane and into freezing waters. I could also see Bucky using it as a last gasp effort to save Cap while sacrificing himself. However it goes down, the Skull needs to be defeated, Bucky needs to sacrifice himself (apparently, at least) and Cap needs to get frozen.

    People worry too much about cable news...

    by Chewtoy

    Fox News had it's highest rated year in history in 2009 when it reached an average total viewership of 2.2 million in primetime (and averaged less than that the rest of the day). There are more than 300,000,000 Americans. Hell, even the best though outdated numbers I can quickly find say that there were 55 million registered Republicans in 2004. During its strongest year (it's down since then), Fox News averaged well under 1% of the population, and well under 5% of all Republicans (especially if you count people who identify themselves as Republican without specifically registering so.) And Fox News is the highest rated of the cable news networks.

    Captain America is non-partisan

    by Dr. Hfuhruhurr

    To say otherwise is to call him a close-minded, biased a-hole. Besides, he's the ultimate soldier, and most soldiers vote Republican because Republicans support the military. Chew on that. I won't be back so don't bother replying.

    Stalkeye RE: Walter Reed

    by BugDOC

    I work at WRAMC and they treat the wounded warriers just fine in spite of the Commander and Chief. All of our Medical Centers are dedicated to helping them recover and get back to life. To suggest otherwise shows your lack of knowledge on the subject. To be fair, we are not perfect but we are soldiers treating soldiers. If you want to be concerned, you should focus on the VA system which they will ultimately go into. Many problems there to be sure most stemming from access to care and funding. As it stands now, a wounded soldier can get in but care is very limited and with the plan to fund Obamacare, it will get much, much worse. Good news is that folks that pay nothing into the system will get funded by those that do and they will rejoice in getting something for nothing. Well, they don't pay for it anyway. My concern is for the folks getting 90K artificial limbs with no plan on how to support replacement down the road. They don't last forever, and when they go I easily see the VA replacing them with more traditional limps (think hooks and peg legs....well almost peg legs). By the way, if you want to see your healthcare future look at Canada. They limit access just like the military and as you get older, you will find fewer and fewer options. If you can get in the care is great but getting in is a problem. Good luck, we are all going to need it. By the way, Captain America will be great. Thor, not so much.
