‘Captain America 3’ “Alters The Universe As A Whole in Some Way”, Says Director

By September 9, 2014

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting Blu-ray and DVD, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been making the rounds promoting the film and talking about their upcoming sequel, the as-yet-untitled Captain America 3. But speaking with Crave Online, Joe Russo revealed what is possibly the biggest revelation yet about the upcoming entry in the Marvel franchise.

The big thing we knew we had to deal with in Cap 2 was the fall of Hydra. Similarly there is a very, very big idea at the center of Cap 3…[one that] alters the universe as a whole in some way. As far as villain and story arc and tone, all that stuff is left up to us.

Sounds like Kevin Feige liked The Winter Soldier so much that he’s basically giving these guys creative freedom to work within the confines of the larger overarching story, and as someone who really dug The Winter Soldier earlier this year, I’m all for that.

Speaking of Feige, though, we know that the Russos know the title of the third Cap movie and they just won’t tell us yet, but if they’re to be believed, Feige himself has known the title for a long, long time:

If you’ve been talking to [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige], the title has been in place probably for ten years in his brain. It’s all part of the road map that he’s laid out, and it’s all part of the bigger plan.

That plan includes a slate of movies that goes all the way up to 2028, so before you scoff at the idea that Feige planned that far ahead for Cap 3, imagine what he has in mind for movies coming out fourteen years from now.

Captain America 3 hits theaters on May 6th, 2016.
