Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo were recently guests on the Empire Podcast. They discussed their film, which is currently in theaters, and also talked about where they are on Captain America 3. (Disney and Marvel have also confirmed that the movie will be released on May 6th, 2016, pitting it against Batman Vs. Superman.)
The Winter Soldier was such an amazing film, I can only imagine how incredible the next one will be. During the podcast they give an update on the progress on the third film saying that that there have been a lot of discussions with writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and that they have a general idea on the direction that they will take Captain America 3.
If you've already seen The Winter Solider, then it shouldn't come as a surprise to you that the third film will focus on Steve Rogers' best friend, Bucky.
"The most that we can say about it at this point, is that Bucky's story is not finished. It's an introduction to Bucky's story. So if you want to guess at what that movie will be about..you can assume this will be a continuation of that story"
One of our readers, Dave S, gave a pretty solid suggestion as to what we might see happen in the next film. When talking about The Winter Soldier in the comment section of the review I wrote he said,
"This film also sets up the inevitable "Death of Captain America" storyline...especially with Emily VanCamp being introduced, first as Kate/Agent 13, but ultimately as Sharon Carter (Peggy Carter's niece), and Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow (aka: Crossbones). Combine that with Bucky/Winter Soldier starting to remember who he is and what his relationship with Steve/Cap was...and of course he'll be the new Captain America."
This is just speculation, but it does sound like it could be the direction Marvel takes this franchise. What would you like to see happen in Captain America 3? Click here to listen to the podcast.
