Captain America To Be Set In World War II Era

Kevin Feige, a Marvel Entertainment executive, has confirmed to IESB.net that the rumors about Matthew McConaughey playing Captain America are indeed false. He also stated that the film will be set in the World War II Era.

He went on to say that the film will be an "origin" piece; one that will chronicle how Steve Rogers becomes Captain America, while staying true to the comic book roots.

Many people spotted the Captain America shield in the lab of Tony Stark in "Iron Man". Feige states that the appearance of the shield was simply "an Easter Egg for the fans", and not a part of either story.
