CAPTAIN AMERICA:THE WINTER SOLDIER, the sequel to Joe Johnston's 2011 CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, is now rolling.  Per THIS announcement at Marvel!  

Captain America: The Winter Soldier” returns Chris Evans (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as the iconic super hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America, along with Scarlett Johansson (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 2”) as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 2”) as Nick Fury. In addition, film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release in the U.S. on April 4, 2014.

The announcement goes on to indicate...

“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, a.k.a. Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.

 Here's a shot from marvel commemorating the start of production.

I hugely enjoyed THE FIRST AVENGER and, while I'm still a touch saddened that Johnston won't be back, I'm really eager to see what they come up with here.  I mean, hell, Redford in a superhero movie should be a sight to behold, if nothing else.  Right?
