    Well didn't Kevin Feige or someone else say that there's room to expand on the adventures that Steve had in the 40's that weren't necessarily shown on screen?

    I mean, it's said that there'll be a montage comprised of Steve's adventures with the Howling Commandos during the WWII era, and that important things that could be used for the sequel, could have taken placed during that specific time period that the audience didn't get a chance to see.

    If the antagonistic threat is especially comprised of a force that started back from that time period that's been waiting for revenge on CA, then all the more reason and space to use WWII elements as well.

    Im going to go unpopular opinion here and say that I wouldnt want a Cap sequel set in the past. Not that I would hate it, but would prefer modern era

    Considering that the film ends with CA in the present, it'd be pretty impossible to set this sequel in the past unless it was comprised of flashbacks that weren't seen in the first film, mixed with a modern day story, or if the entire story was a flashback in itself, OR if CA used a time machine.lol

    Well, with Cap you have two distinct options. As far as his current storyline goes, I don't want them doing anything for Cap 2 but having him deal with life in the present. But that doesn't mean you can't have the one-shot type of Cap movie come out that tells a story of him in WWII. That'd be the best way to introduce characters like Namor & the Invaders(who, understandably are not the focus of THIS current movie).

    If sequel is set in past, bring back Joe.
    A modern sequel I would like to see Doug Liman.

    They could do something revolutionary and have two directors.
    Joe for the WWII scenes and someone for the modern scenes.

    Then let the modern director take the reigns for the third CA:ROTS finale.

    The sequel will be set in both the past and present. Guaranteed. In fact, if Bucky ends up "dying" in the movie, I'd be willing to bet that the sequels plot will be the Winter Soldier story.

    Assuming we get two sequels I'd put some good money on Winter Soldier and Baron Zemo being the villains. Both of which could (and should) involve flashbacks.

    I won't mind if there's a part in the story where Rogers was recalling his old memories of fighting in the WWII with the Howling Commanders & Bucky, so we can get some more retro action scenes. But I want the majority of the movie to be set in the modern time, because this is where Steve Rogers is at and all his stories should be present, not past. I also want them to delve into the character of Winter Soldier/Bucky, and perhaps have Baron as the main villain.

    As for JJ, I hope he'd be back if the movie does well. If he doesn't return, maybe they can get Martin Campbell instead; Capt. America won't have nearly as much green screen as GL did, and with movies like Goldeneye and Casino Royale, Campbell proves that he can direct a fine movie if it is within his area of expertise.

    Like I said before, I find it hard to believe that a so called “sequel” could take place entirely in the past again (unless Time Travel was involved), since we know that the first film ends with CA awakening in the modern day, and we see him doing what he does best in the Avengers. It’d feel more like a prequel to the Avengers than an actual sequel to CA as well. Plus, I find it hard to believe that Steve had gone through an adventure that was so big (big enough to be considered sequel material) that we didn’t see or hear about in CA.

    Hard to say. He doesn't have a history of doing sequels. The only film of his that I really, really enjoy is The Rocketeer. So I'm hoping he's also become a better director over the years and doesn't let us down with this picture.

    lol; like Peter Griffin, I haven't even seen the first one yet, but this definitely peaks my further interest.

    I think that Cap 2 will be like Brubaker's run; set in the present with lots of flashbacks.

    I can't imagine they'd want to only use Atwell, Stan, etc for just one movie...and given I don't see the Winter Soldier returning until the last Cap movie, I'll say Bucky won't have a modern place in Cap 2.

    guess its just me but i dont see any reason to wait around to use Winter Soldier. i think they could have him pop up in pretty much any Marvel Movie. i mean he is an international assassin. honestly wouldnt be surprised to see hints of him as early as The Avengers. theyre definately not gonna wait around for the third Cap movie. anyways that could take 6 or 7 years. i want WS ASAP! lol

    Why not? I think Winter Soldier can be introduced as an villain in Cap 2, then reveal his true identity in Cap 3, so both WS and Cap can join together to face the final boss (Baron?).

    If Winter Soldier pops up the second Cap opens his eyes, then the shock of Bucky being alive is lost. You have to give Cap time to mourn Bucky for it to have emotional resonance.

    It's also a common misconception by newer Captain America fans that there are no great stories worth adapting save for the winter soldier saga...and that's just not true. The Englehardt Secret Empire arc would be fantastic.

    With guys like JJ & Branagh, they aren't that young anymore. Commiting to sequels is simply less likely, IMO. Younger guys like Favs, Nolan, Singer, Vaughn, etc. can devote a significant chunk of their career to this stuff as they've got more time. Just my 2 cents.

    He did say he was under contract for 2 films with Marvel studios, but he did say he may do another character instead of Cap (or maybe a Winter Soldier spin-off). So...looks to be 50/50 on him coming back.

    Cap can easily travel back to the past. Just have Stark build him a souped-up DeLorean and then have Thor hit it with a lightning bolt.

    If we got a Winter Soldier movie from JJ before Cap 2 that would be amazing then when Cap 2 is released. People would understand WS and it would just serve has a great lead in.

    Here's my basic ideas for sequels:

    Cap 2- Baron Zemo as the main villain (would show WW2 flashbacks), Introduces Falcon & possible Sharon Carter (if she's not in Avengers), Continues The Avengers' sub-plot of a Man out of Time

    Cap 3- Cap's past comes to haunt him as both Red Skull & Bucky return, but Bucky returning in the form of the Winter Soldier.

    If the sequel takes place in modern day, I don't think he'll be back. JJ was great with this time period of the first film. His whole style really fits. Just like how he did a great job with the whole vibe of the Rocketeer. It was very reminiscent of it. I just don't see how that style would fit in a modern day Cap story.
