S.H.i.E.L.D. To Play Large Role In Captain America 2

While speaking with SuperHeroHype Marvel's Kevin Feige confirmed that SHIELD will have a presence in Captain America 2. It's only the second tidbit of information about the sequel besides the inclusion of the flashbacks to WWII adventures. Kevin didn't elaborate what that SHIELD lineup would look like but I'm sure Fury will be involved. It's unknown if Hawkeye and Widow will be on Cap's new team or if Marvel will decide to add new heroes like Sharon Carter, Falcon and Union Jack. Currently the film is without a director and release date, so check back here for updates on that development.

"Frankly, I think S.H.I.E.L.D. would be most relevant in a Cap sequel, because Thor has nine worlds to traverse and many, many supporting players and Iron Man has his supporting cast and many villains and plotlines to go through and Steve in the modern world sorta doesn't have an anchor and the anchor we're establishing in this one is S.H.I.E.L.D.. It's early days on "Cap 2," nobody's counting those chickens yet, but maybe there's some connection there."
