We’ve already seen how Marvel Studios does Asgard thanks to the first Thor, but Guardians promises to take us into a whole new corner of the MCU. According to studio head Kevin Feige, Guardians will be set “95% in space.” And yes, that means we won’t see much of the Avengers out there. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Captain America: The First Avenger stood out from most of the comic book movie pack because it offered something a bit different. In addition to being yet another superhero origin story, it was a WWII movie that heartily embraced the ’40s setting, rather than simply using it as window dressing.
The sequel, subtitled The Winter Soldier, will go into production soon with Chris Evans reprising his role as Cap, and Anthony and Joe Russo stepping in to direct. The film takes its title, and presumably much of its storyline, from the Ed Brubaker-penned storyline of the same name, in which Cap’s WWII sidekick Bucky (Sebastian Stan), thought dead, is revived as a Soviet assassin.

Despite the seven-decade leap between Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there are a few stars from the former set to reprise their roles in the latter. That group includes Chris Evans as the title character, obviously, along with Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes and Toby Jones as Arnim Zola. It won’t, however, include Stanley Tucci, who revealed in a recent interview that his character Dr. Abraham Erskine won’t be in the sequel.
But contrary to previous reports, Tucci claims that Cap’s former flame Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) will make an appearance after all, as part of a flashback sequence. Hit the jump for more details.

Not all mainstream superhero flicks to change love interests between installments. Even the womanizing Tony Stark been loyal to Pepper through three films now, four if you count the upcoming Iron Man 3. But given the big time jump at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier simply couldn’t stick with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), no matter how delightful she was.
Over the past several months, we’ve watched as what felt like every moderately famous actress under 35 tried to attach herself to Winter Soldier female lead. Now, at long last, Marvel Studios has found their lucky lady in Emily VanCamp. The 26-year-old actress is best known for her TV work, having starred in Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, and, currently, Revenge. More details after the jump.

While it’s typical for film franchises to keep the same stars between installments, the big time jump between Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier makes retaining the cast a trickier proposition. But thanks to the power of flashbacks and comic book science, it’s not an entirely impossible one.
So far, Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan have been set to reprise their roles. Now they’re also being joined by Toby Jones. In a recent interview, the Brit actor confirmed that he’d be reprising the role of villainous Arnim Zola. Hit the jump to keep reading, but be warned that spoilers for The First Avenger and speculation about The Winter Soldier follow.
