Captain America: The Winter Solider starts shooting next March under the direction of Anthony and Joe Russo.  The sequel is based on the run of comic books written by Ed Brubaker. It tells the story of how a brainwashed Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan, comes back as a Russian Assassin known as Winter Soldier. There's no word on how faithful the movie will stay to the comic, but it seems like Chris Evans is excited to get back into his red, white and blue uniform. In a recent interview with MTV, he explains that the whole Winter Soldier arc was planned from the beginning,

There were always hints at that. The best thing about [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige is he's a fan. He's not just a businessman, he's a rabid comic book fan. Even during the first Captain America, well before The Avengers, there were whispers of [Winter Soldier] being the sequel. So I'm excited to tackle that.

I'm sure Marvel is already quietly developing phase three of their plan. One thing that we know is that Marvel thinks and plans ahead. Evans goes on to talk about Sebastian Stan saying that, "He's such a great guy." And then talks about working with Anthony Mackie, who was cast as Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon. "He's so great, I've known Mackie for a few years now. I'm really happy we got him. We got lucky."

Do you you think Community directors Anthony and Joe Russo are going to be able to pull this movie off?
