Captain America: The Winter Soldier began production in Los Angeles today and Marvel and Disney issued the above image commemorating the first day of shooting. The production will also set up shop in Cleveland and Washington D.C. under the direction of Anthony and Joe Russo.

Chris Evans returns as the title character with the film picking-up where The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.

Additional members of the cast include Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) as Agent Maria Hill, Frank Grillo (Zero Dark Thirty) as Brock Rumlow and Georges St-Pierre (Death Warrior) as Georges Batroc, Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Peggy Carter, Toby Jones (The Hunger Games) as Arnim Zola, Emily VanCamp (Revenge) as Agent 13 and Maximiliano Hernández (Thor) as Agent Jasper Sitwell.

Captain America 2 is set for an April 4, 2014 release and will follow as the third Avengers franchise film following the massive success of The Avengers as "Phase Two" of Marvel's cinematic franchise will begin this summer with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013 followed by Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013.

Filming in Cleveland at the Lorian Road Bridge is expected to begin in the next week or so with extras already being sought.

    Is anyone else fatigued?

      Not yet, but in fairness - never say 'never'. There's a lot in the pipeline and they could well oversaturate themselves eventually. Disney could well see to that part.

      Completely fatigued. Marvel just doesn't know when to hit the pause button. I say this even though I'm seriously looking forward to the next Thor pictures. It's just the other ones I can't even begin to get excited for.

      At least WB/DC gives you breathers in between films. Their films feel like events.

      Not me... I've enjoyed some comic book films and found others to be over-rated and others still to be of little interest in the first place. None of it really causes me to reject the possibilities of anything the future might bring or upsets me.

      Ultimately though, the continuing existence of things that don't appeal to me rarely ever weighs on me.

    I just can't help but feel these are all just coming down an assembly line now. Same rusty parts slightly different veneer. We will have had 4 iron man appearances in five years...I wish I could muster any excitement for these.

      And what's funny is that weren't not even counting the Marvel films/franchises not owned by Disney.

      Next year, there will be 4 Marvel films released between April and August.

    I find Captain America to be the only one I enjoy. I really like his interactions with Black Widow, they seem to be the only two who don't have bad blood between them.

    All of the other recent Marvel films were successful and quite enjoyable (to varying degrees), so I see no reason to think that the latest Captain America film will be a failure.

    Thems the facts
