Captain America: The First Avenger is a 2011 film and the fifth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase One. It was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Paramount Pictures. The film was directed by Joe Johnston, from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. It was followed in 2011 by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the first of two sequels. The sequel was set in present-day, with an almost entirely new cast and two new directors, while keeping the same writers.

In 2009, The Walt Disney Company bought Marvel Entertainment, although this didn't affect the distribution rights of The First Avenger in the home video market until July 2013.
