Captain America 2 To Shoot This Year?
Nick Fury film planned afterwards

Captain America 2 To Shoot This Year?

Neal McDonough played Cap's bowler-hatted, majestically-mustachioed comrade-in-arms Dum Dum Dugan in last year's Captain America: The First Avenger... and it looks like he'll play him again in the sequel, set to go into production later this year.

Confirming what Tom Hiddleston already told us a couple of weeks ago - i.e. that Thor 2 is set to shoot first this year - McDonough mentioned a few more details to during a chat about his TV show, Justified.

"Yeah, they’re planning (to go into production for) Captain America 2 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 2 has wrapped, they’ll do Cap 2."

So that's good news. But the even better news is that Nick Fury's potentially '70s-set feature film, provisionally titled, um, Nick Fury, is set to start up after Cap 2 has wrapped.

"Hopefully right after that, we’ll jump into Nick Fury because that’s the one I’m looking forward to more than anything... it’ll be me and Sam Jackson. In the real Marvel universe, Dum Dum Dugan is Nick Fury’s right hand man."

But as we say, the '70s setting is not confirmed, with McDonough still hoping that's how things will pan out.

"I just pray that they have a 1970s setting, because I want to see Sam Jackson with lambchops kicking people’s asses for Marvel universe. It would just be awesome. And to work with Sam would be a treat."

It's an incredible thought - though as this is just an off-hand remark from an actor being interviewed about another topic entirely, we're going to take this one with a punch of salt.

After all, without official say-so from Marvel HQ, it's hard to believe that a movie two films down the line is set in stone, but we can dream, we can but dream...

It does make you wonder though: how will the timelines work? How will actors look old enough and young enough? How will Cap go back in time? All with be revealed - okay, a little bit more will be revealed - come April 27, when The Avengers hits cinemas.

Sam Jackson can play any age
The man can look 190 or 35 with the right wig. And why are people who think Marvel's movie are crap even reading Marvel related articles, let alone leaving comments - in which the seem to think that the whole world agrees with them. Do you not have anything better to do? More

RE: Something a little deadlier...
Unless Avengers is the film Marvel have been apparently expecting to be the one event movie big enough to make all the often individual film weakening cross referencing justified, for me, at least, they can go to Hell.. You can have too much of a good thing, and you can definitely have too much of a mediocre run of the mill half arsed thing that doesn't have it's eye on the ball during the play offs because it's already thinking about the final.

Something a little deadlier...
I'd like to see Marvel try something different, say an 18 rated Carnage movie utilising one of their characters in a more adult movie and portraying Cletus Cassidy as the maniac killer he is in the red blood suit. Sack the bright coloured boyscouts for a bit, try some villain movies...Venom, Hobgoblin, Juggernaut...endless possibiities and not just same old same old with 2, 3, 4 5 on the end and don't get me fuckin started on the Amazing Horseshit Spiderman...

Unless it's a spoof spy-comedy a la Black Dynamite I can't see Samuel L. Jackson playing himself in his 20s without laughable wigs and heavy make-up. No-one is going to take that seriously. More

I really enjoyed Captain America so im glad that the sequel will be made soon.Perhaps Dum Dum will be seen in a WW2 flashback and Cap will face his former friend Bucky now transformed into The Winter Soldier in the present day? Not too sure about a Nick Fury movie set in the 70s with Sam Jackson though,hes far too old to play his younger self.What are they going to do, slap an afro on him? More

Well, the Cap 2 thing is easy. There was that big montage type section of the film where we saw lots of snippets of other battles. It'd be easy enough to set the film during that period of time. That said, coming up with a framing device to explain that in a simple and understandable way might be tricky. Nicky Fury flick could be cool, but the 70's thing seems odd, surely the best way to do a Fury flick would be to make a modern spy movie, all high tech espionage and Fury battling A.I.M or so More

Agree. Thor and Captain America were average, Iron Man 2 was boring and anything with Lantern or Hornet in the title really shouldn't have got past the, ahem, green light. I think the genre's been done to death now and there could be a backlash on the way. Couldn't give a Valkyrie's codpiece about Avengers either .... More

What next? Pepper Potts: The Movie? Or maybe General Ross: Full On Assault!! And they wonder why people are getting a little bored with all the marvel crap being forced onto the market. More
