The plot, "An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."
Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen & Natalie Portman are all being considered for roles in the film. We must say this will really be a lovely cast if they all choose to sign on.
- THE FIRST AVENGER LOOKS TO GO BACK TO WWII
|Captain America: The First Avenger|
Marvel studios, looks set on making a sequel to Captain America: the first Avenger. The first film will tell the story of Steve Rogers’s transformation into a superhero during WWII, before appearing in the modern world in Avengers. Which leaves one question…. Will the sequel be in present times or will it revert back to Rogers in the WWII era??
MTV Splash Page spoke to screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who penned the first Cap movie and have already been hired to write the second. And they seem to think that Captain America 2 could wind up taking place… in both time periods.
"It's sort of a weirdly huge opportunity for storytelling in that you know modern Cap through the Avengers at that point," says Markus, "and … there's going to be a lot of his World War II history we haven't shown. We're going to have two entire timelines to play with."
Its still early talk at this point in time, as Cap 2 being made will depend on the success of the First Avenger that will be released this year.
The film is set to release in June in the USA, but unfortunately it will only hit South Africa’s screens in August.
