‘Captain America 2′ Starts Filming Next Year!
While the Toronto International Film Festival is still underway, everyone is anxious to see the first showing of films like 'Cloud Atlas' and 'Argo,' and get as much information on the stars' future projects. Though the actors and actresses only attended the festival to see the premieres and promote their current works, everyone wanted to grill them on their much-talked-about, upcoming films.
For Chris Evans, that meant getting as many details about 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Solider') from him as possible. Thankfully, this time around, 'The Avengers' star gave us some actual information we can work with.
During an interview with Collider, (which has not yet been published) Evans revealed that the filming of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' will begin next year for an April 2014 premiere date.
And for all the Marvel fans...Chris Evans says filming on the CAPTAIN AMERICA sequel begins in March 2013.

In light of the return of Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes and the implications of the comic book series, 'Captain America: The Winter Solider' will most likely chronicle the story of how Barnes was frozen in ice after falling to his presumed death in the first movie. However, Barnes is discovered by Russian General Vasily Karpov, who revives and brainwashes the former army brat into becoming an assassin called "The Winter Soldier."
'Captain America 2' also stars Chris Evans, reprising his role as the Cap, and Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, who's enhanced suit gives him strength, flight and avian telepathy. The film is set to hit theaters April 4, 2014, so until then, keep it right here for all the latest updates on 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
