OK, that title might not be official. But word on Latino Review is that Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, the screenwriters of Captain America: The First Avenger, have already been hired to write a sequel — more than five months before the first Steve Rogers adventure hits the big screen. Of course, this is an unconfirmed report, and as any coffee shop full of disenchanted writers can tell you, just because you’re hired to write a script doesn’t mean it’s going to get made. But, if true, this is definitely a sign of confidence from Marvel Studios on the strength of The First Avenger, implying that they were just as excited over the Super Bowl spot as everyone else was — and, well, a sequel to any comic book movie should obviously be considered at least “probable” at this point.
Captain America: The First Avenger is out July 22.
