The new Captain America movie will impact Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. It'll have an impact on Agents Of SHIELD too...

Heading into UK cinemas at the end of next month is Marvel Studios' latest movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There have been suggestions before that this is a pivotal film in terms of helping to set up Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And as part of a conference call with investors, Disney's CEO Bob Iger has cemented that.

"I’ve really been impressed with the early buzz that we’re seeing for the Marvel films", Iger told some rich people on the phone. "Captain America 2 is just huge and it takes the Captain America story to incredible new levels". He added that the film "will set critical events in motion" that lead to the Avengers sequel, and would also have some impact on Agents Of SHIELD.

The studio clearly has confidence in the new Captain America movie, given that it's already re-engaged directors Joe and Anthony Russo to develop the third film. It arrives in the UK on March 26th, and in the US on April 4th.
