Kevin Feige spoke to Marvel.com about how Captain America: The First Avenger was originally going to be set both in the past and present. There’s also a quote about how important it it was for Cap to be a leader going into The Avengers. Here’s Feige, head there for more:
We developed a script that took place half in the ‘40s and half in present day, but it felt like both sides were getting the short shrift. In a conversation with [director] Joe [Johnston], he was very much in support of a full period [film]. And because it is an origin story and an initial adventure, it made sense. Frankly, because there are so many other comic book movies out there, we knew that would help the film stand apart as long as we stayed true to the source material and his origin.
