Chris Evans will don a new-and-improved costume as Steve Rogers/Captain America in next year’s The Avengers. However, it currently looks as though we’ll have to wait at least two and a half years before Cap gets his next solo venture – which, for now, is just being referred to as Captain America 2.

Captain America screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – who are also working on the followup – offered some additional information about the superhero’s next solo cinematic adventure. The writing pair had mentioned before that Captain America 2 will take place in both the present-day and W.W. II era – though, how exactly much of the film will be set in either time frame has not really been clarified, up to now.

Here is what Markus had to offer on that topic:
I think it’s safe for us to say that [Captain America 2 will be] primarily set in the modern day. That seems to have been the biggest question people have been wondering about regarding the sequel… [W]e’ve been left with room to explore Cap entering the modern day wondering, ‘What is all this? What’s happened to the world’ and so on.
McFeely has this to say, with regards to why more of the Captain America sequel will likely end up taking place in a contemporary setting:
We made a movie where the world was in context for Steve Rogers. It was a movie where it was a more pure time, where there were clearly black-and-white, right-and-wrong, good-and-evil scenarios. And Cap is a guy who symbolizes that. Now he’s in the now, and there is nothing black-and-white. So what do you do with that guy? How does he react to a much more uncertain time? So you’re given this huge new palate to work with, but you can keep him the same.
Chris Evans previously indicated that Steve Rogers “gets to be a little darker” in The Avengers, seeing how he’s (literally) a relic of a bygone era who must adjust to life in a time where everyone he knew and loved is dead. That’s not to mention, he’ll be in a comparatively morally-ambiguous world where (as McFeely noted) things are often painted in shades of gray. So it only makes sense that Captain America 2 would continue to develop Roger’s personal journey in a similar direction.

I have never considered walking out of the theater more than I did with Captain America.

Well that's a random choice for directors.
