Marvel doesn't even have the script ready, and at the earliest they can film CA3 is at the end of year/early 2015.
They'll need some leeway for reshoots/pick-ups too... so an April 2016 move is kinda pushing it. It doesn't need to be rushed. Besides, I think CA3 will likely play better around the Fourth of July holiday weekend because of the patriotic nature of the character.
TWS started filming in April and The Avengers 13 months out, 15 months (January 2015) would be plenty of time for April 2016.
