"Captain America" Writers Talk Sequel

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the screenwriters for "Captain America: The First Avenger", are already discussing their plans for a sequel to the yet-to-be-released film. They sat down for an interview with MTV News, and said that if "Captain America" does well at the box office in July, that they will proceed with the sequel.

"We're very early, still. This is the fun part - when we can say, "Hey, we can do this!" and everyone says, "Yeah!" No one says anything negative at this point in the process" says Markus. "We have a million great ideas and haven't thrown any of them out yet. That being said, it's sort of a weirdly huge opportunity for storytelling in that you know modern Cap through the Avengers at that point, and just by the nature of what we were talking about before, there's going to be a lot of his World War II history we haven't shown. We're going to have two entire timelines to play with.

"I wonder if the reaction to ["The First Avenger"] will steer us in some way. First, if it does well... Then, if it does well and people embrace the World War II aspect of it, maybe there's pressure to return there in a large way. But if they don't embrace that aspect and just love Chris Evans as Steve, maybe there's less pressure to do that - you can just keep him in the Avengers universe", said McFeely.

"Captain America: The First Avenger" will be released on July 22, 2011.
