“Captain America 2″ to begin production in late 2012.
With Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 already scheduled for release in 2013, fans have been anxiously awaiting when we might see Captain America in another solo outing. According to costar recent quotes from costar Neal McDonough, who is signed on to reprise his role as Dum Dum Dugan, this may be happening sooner than we think.
McDonough recently spoke to IMDB Television about his role on the current season of Justified, and offered this detail about the First Avenger’s return to the big screen:
“They’re planning [to go into production] for the end of this year, because Marvel does one film at a time. So they’re going to do Thor 2 and as soon as Thor has wrapped, they’ll do Cap 2. Hopefully right after that, we’ll jump into Nick Fury because that’s the one I’m looking forward to more than anything.”
With Marvel already claiming two high-profile release dates in 2014, it seems likely that a late 2012 start for the Captain America sequel could easily position the film for a 2014 release. We’ll keep you posted.
