On a Twitter account apparently associated with the entertainment news site Collider earlier today, news broke that we now have a start date for the next Marvel film to go into production after Thor: The Dark World.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Chris Evans told a reporter at the Toronto International Film Festival that principal photography on the Marvel sequel will begin in March of 2013, according to Comic Book Movie.
It’s not totally clear where the film will shoot; Captain America: The First Avenger filmed in the United Kingdom, but not only will this film not take place in Europe (as most of the previous one did), but it’s rumored that Ant Man may be set to go in front of cameras in London once Thor: The Dark World finishes filming.
If Captain America: The Winter Soldier films stateside, it’s likely to be at the EUE/Screen Gems Studios in North Carolina, where Iron Man 3 is currently filming. Rumors have had the production headed for Wilmington, so it wouldn’t exactly be a surprise move.
Captain America was last seen in Marvel’s The Avengers, the third-highest grossing film of all time (both domestically and worldwide) and the highest-grossing movie of 2012. An as-yet-untitled sequel to the film is due in theaters on May 1, 2015.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will star Evans as Captain America, Anthony Mackie as Falcon and Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes. An adaptation of a comic book story by the same name, Barnes is the titular Winter Soldier–Captain America’s former sidekick, who returns from being presumed dead as a brainwashed Soviet assassin with his sights on those nearest to Captain America. It’s due in theaters on April 4, 2014.
