Presently the plan is to begin the film's action in 1942 & 1943 during the Second World War, and "then forward to what they're doing with Captain America now... The stuff in the ’60s and ’70s comic books we're sort of avoiding."
I don't know what this means. Can anyone tell us about Captain America in the 1960's and 1970's? What was wrong with them?
There may be more than one explanation. One I've understood is that during that time Steve was frozen in ice they had other Captain Americas(for the purpose of rationalizing the MU Cap stories). I think they want to avoid confusion and keep it basically Steve Rogers=Captain America.
In the 1970s, the post-war versions of Captain America were retconned into separate, successive characters who briefly took up the mantle of Captain America after Steve Rogers went into suspended animation near the end of World War II.
