It has been reported that the Marvel movie sequel, Captain America 2, will be a direct continuation of the upcoming Marvel movie The Avengers. It was previously stated by The Avengers director Joss Whedon, that he would try to make it possible for the follow up movies for all the characters to follow directly from The Avengers.
Total Film claim that, “The second instalment will pick-up where the highly anticipated Marvel's The Avengers leaves off as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.”
It was recently revealed by The Avengers director Joss Whedon, that the movie had to be shut down for a short period of time, after actor Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the movie, injured himself during a stunt.
The Avengers stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and Tom Hiddleston as Loki.
The Avengers is released in the UK on April 26 and in the US on May 4.
