Q: We know he comes into modern day for The Avengers, but is there room to go back to WWII?
SM: Well, our hope is that there is room and we’re negotiating how to do that now. The story will likely be in the present day. We’re experimenting with flashback elements for more period World War II stuff. I can’t say much more than that but we made it baggy enough to refer to more stories in the past.
Q: So you left gaps in Captain America 1 where you can always say something else was going on back then?
SM: Absolutely. He had more adventures than just the one you’re going to see in the movie.
Q: Do you know who the villain of Captain America 2 would be?
SM: It’s undetermined. I will pass that question, how about that?
Q: When would you be scheduled to work on a sequel?
SM: We’ve already made the deal so I was at Marvel last week. We’re talking and passing stuff back and forth all the time. They just sent me a big PDF file of comics.
McFeely comments even more at ScreenJunkies on the first Cap movie, some scenes and details, and other comic book characters that haven't yet hit the silver screen including Luke Cage and The Flash.

Captain America: First Avenger hits theaters July 22nd, 2011 starring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Hugo Weaving as his arch-enemy -- Johann Schmidt, the Red Skull.


Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected.  Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by ‘vita-rays.’  Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program.  Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
