LOS ANGELES (AP) — Captain America is getting another solo shot on the big-screen.

Walt Disney Studios announced Thursday that a sequel to last year’s superhero hit “Captain America: The First Avenger” will arrive in theaters on April 4, 2014.

The first movie starred Chris Evans as the patriotic fighter for justice dressed in red, white and blue. “Captain America” took in $368 million at the worldwide box office.

Evans reprises his role as Captain America in “The Avengers,” an ensemble adventure featuring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner as a team of Marvel Comics heroes.

“The Avengers” is due out May 4.
