The sequel will pick up where The Avengers left off. The story is all about a soldier called Steve Rogers who gels turned into a super soldier over a chemical experiment.
At the end he had been frozen for nearly seven decades. He was asked by S.H.I.E.L.D’s head Nick Fury to come and join the world’s band of super-heroes, a story which will be told in the May 4 release of “The Avengers”.
In its announcement, Marvel said that
”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.” This only means that Samuel L. Jackson’s Fury can be expected to have a big role in the second film.
