|Tony Stark refused to join the Avengers Initiative and later, refuses to give the government the Iron Man technology. So, the government decides to insert a member of the newfound SHIELD agency, Natasha Romanova AKA Black Widow, into Stark Industries as Tony's new secretary, filling in for Pepper Potts, who took Obadiah Stane's function as CEO. Natasha steals the Mark II and the Arc Reactor blueprints, which are given to Justin Hammer. He turns the Mark II into War Machine and mass produces Arc Reactors for the Tactical Assault Drones, which, unknowingly to Natasha and the others, are part of his plan to destroy Stark.|
Which would place this [movie] as occuring before The Incredible Hulk [movie] theoretically.
From a different source: "Not really any new news, she has a long history with S.H.I.E.L.D in the comics. She has taken on several different assignments for them. She eventually becomes part of the Avengers. This has been talked about a few times in interviews with Scarlett Johansson and Marvel president Kevin Feige.

|Speaking of Avengers with Sean Connery (The Avengers, BBC), I love him acting, he has really no love lost for the acting schedule I believe, saying he'd rather play golf then act ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. Shame though, real shame, no one can act in his stead!|

It's been confirmed that Red Skull will be the villain in the film. We assumed that's who it would be, but it's nice that we've got solid confirmation.
Steve Rodger's A.K.A. Captain America will definitely be played by an American actor. This is something we've heard from the very beginning, we also heard that Marvel was more interested in casting a big name actor in the role to appeal more to a world wide audience, but it sounds like Johnston has other plans. He wants to discover a complete unknown actor and surround him with bigger name actors. He’s currently testing five or six guys, “The youngest is 23, the oldest is 32. Most of the guys in the war are just kids, 18 or 19, but we want to go a little bit older.” Casting needs to be completed by March 1st 2010.
They are actually going to explain why Captain America wears a bright red, white and blue costume in the World War II battlefields:
"After he’s made into this super-soldier, they decide they can’t send him into combat and risk him getting killed. He’s the only one and they can’t make more. So they say, ‘You’re going to be in this USO show’ and they give him a flag suit.... So he’s up on stage doing songs and dances with chorus girls and he can’t wait to get out and really fight. When he does go AWOL, he covers up the suit but then, after a few things happen, he realizes that this uniform allows him to lead. By then, he’s become a star in the public mind and a symbol. The guys get behind him because he embodies something special."
According to Johnston the costume will be very close to the classic Jack Kirby-designed outfit, but as the movie plays out he will eventually be wearing "a sturdier, more muted version that he makes himself that is more like battle togs. The stripes across his mid-section, for instance, will be straps, not colored fabric. He realizes the value of the uniform symbols but he modifies his suit and adds some armor, it will be closer to the Cpa costume in some of the comics in more recent years."
Location and Shooting Date
The film will be shot in the UK as most of the story is set in Europe. As you know it's an origin story and pretty much the whole movie set in World War II, aside from “the bookends.” Filming starts in London at the end of June.
The film will be shot in 2D High Definition, with a visual style Johnston describes as “a bit different,” trying to interpret the visual style of the more recent comics “into a film in a way that I think hasn’t been tried before."

|The first team appeared in flashback stories set during World War II, and was comprised of existing characters from Timely Comics, the 1940s predecessor of Marvel, mostly appeared in All Winner Squad comic book. Originally, Captain America (Steve Rogers), his sidekick Bucky (James Barnes), the original android Human Torch ("Jim Hammond"), the Torch's sidekick Toro (Thomas Raymond), and Namor the Sub-Mariner were together as heroes opposing the forces of Nazism. When these superheroes saved the life of English Prime Minister Winston Churchill from Master Man, the thankful Churchill suggested that they should become a team, known as the Invaders.|
The Invaders fought the Axis Powers over the world until eventually finding themselves in England, where they met Lord James Montgomery Falsworth, the original Union Jack. He joined the team and provided them with a base of operations in England. Eventually Falsworth's children Brian (Union Jack) and Jacqueline (Spitfire) became members. The team later added Miss America (Madeline Joyce) and super-speedster the Whizzer (Bob Frank), during a battle with the Super-Axis. Later, against the threat of the Battle-Axis, the team added the Blazing Skull and the Silver Scorpion to its roster.

|QUOTE (Summary from different site)|
|The next bit of news is more surprising. John Krasinski's name is one of seven that are being tossed around by Marvel Studios for the role of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. Jim Halpert as Cap? Bizarre. I don't know if I could buy that. There seems to be a groundswelling of support for Chris Pine to hold the shield, but at this point it's nothing but wishful thinking. Other names on Marvel's list? Mike Vogel (Cloverfield), Scott Porter (Caprica, Speed Racer), Michael Cassidy (Smallville), and Patrick Flueger (Brothers). There's also a slight chance of seeing Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) or Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy) suit up, but those are less likely than the main players listed above. But the aspect that raised my eyebrows the most? Whoever eventually scores the role has to sign a nine-film contract for potential spinoffs, cameo appearances, and team-up films (ahem, The Avengers).|
