Chris Evans Says Marvel Will Release CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 in 2014

     September 22, 2011


Chris Evans is making the rounds to promote his new legal thriller Puncture, but the next several years of interviews will be filled with Captain America questions for the young actor.  Thankfully, Evans is candid and willing to field said questions.  In a recent interview, Evans revealed what he’s heard about Marvel’s plans for the release of Captain America 2:

“They may wait until 2014 until they release the next Cap.  Marvel has a lot of balls in the air, they aren’t going to cannibalize their films.”

Makes sense.  Marvel already has two releases in summer 2013: Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013 and Thor 2 on July 26, 2013.  Two releases is a nice meal; three is cannibalism.  Marvel has staked out May 6, 2014 and June 27, 2014Captain America 2 will likely take one of those.  The other date could go to a spinoff for Hawkeye, Black Widow, S.H.I.E.L.D.; to new characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy or Doctor Strange; or maybe a sequel to The Avengers.

Hit the jump for more from Evans on his multi-picture deal at Marvel and Joss Whedon’s influence on the new Captain America costume in The Avengers.

captain-america-the-avengers-concept-artMarvel is notorious for locking actors in for many hypothetical sequels and spinoffs.  With Evans, the deal covers three standalone Captain America movies and three Avengers movies.  Don’t expect to see Evans cameo Nick Fury-style in other superhero vehicles because, as the actor eloquently stated to The Playlist:

“Out of those six films, if I pop up in one of those [other films], it counts as part of the deal. So if they needed me in a third Cap, and I say, ‘Fuck you, give me $30 million.’ Well… they want to avoid that.”


I thought a potentially silly costume was realized well on screen in several iterations in Captain America.  There will be at least one more version in The Avengers, and director Joss Whedon was the main influence on the design:

“The first one was a 1940s look, very utilitarian, something that would serve a purpose on the battlefield. But in The Avengers, Joss just had a certain vision in his mind about what he wanted Cap to look like. That’s what he wanted to see. It’s so nice working on these movies and the director’s a fan. He’s the dude at Comic-Con that we’re terrified of pissing off. If Joss is happy, I’m happy.”

If Joss is happy, we here at Collider, too, are happy.

    There are many Captain America allies and villains that weren’t included in the first film which they can utilise in future sequels and give us new stories.

    You must just look at the picturs in the comics. If you knew how to read you could spell better. It’s very hard to take your opinion seriously when your spelling is not proper. If your fist language is not English then I do apologize. If it is and you’re just very young then I apologize. If you’re teen or young adult, I would suggest online spelling classes.
