Disney Announces 'Captain America' Sequel for Release in April 2014

Yesterday we got some sweet illustrated wallpapers for The Avengers, complete with Captain America swinging his shield around like a boss. We won't see him fighting in the contemporary world until the film hits the big screen on May 4th next month, but now we have official word that the sequel will see Cap's continued adventures in a modern day setting. A press release (along with the photo above which you can see in full below) was sent our way along with news that Disney will release the still untitled sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger, on April 4th, 2014. Sounds like we'll start summer early that year.
Here's the new photo from The Avengers (click for a much larger high-resolution version):
In addition, the press release came with a brief and vague logline saying the sequel will "pick up where The Avengers leaves off as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. Now with an official release date set, we're still waiting for a director to be chosen. Last we heard, the shortlisted frontrunners in consideration were George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), F. Gary Gray (Law Abiding Citizen) and "Community" directing duo Anthony and Joseph Russo but we'll have to wait and see which one of them pans out for the director's chair. Cool?

Cap's helmet looks off. So does the look and feel of the costume. Why can't they just swallow their pride and admit that Bryan Hitch's design is superior and the one to go with?

I'd give George Nolfi a shot. Good writer. Decent direction on his only directing gig. But for the sake of all: update the suit. It's time Disney. Make updating the suit your new favorite.

Man does he look bad compared to the design of Iron Man. Even compared to Thor.

every time I see Chris Evans as Cap I jus think "what a joke". And that costume sucks.

I don't think he looks so bad in this picture. I gotta see more of it in action before I can be sure it totally sucks.
