"Captain America 2" may have been eclipsed by another Marvel movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" as the year’s biggest domestic hit, but the Captain America sequel’s performace at the box office cannot be easily dismissed either. With its record at the box office, expectations for "Captain America 3" is very high and it is surely putting some pressure to Marvel and its cast.
According to recent news from Collider, “Captain America 3” is set to start filming next April in Atlanta. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo will again direct the third film. It has also been confirmed from the directors that the next movie will explore more about the convoluted relationship between Steve Rogers (Capt. America) and Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier); as well as addressing the identity issues of Bucky.
Red Skull is also hinted to make a return, as the directors said that anything is possible within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans can also expect a greater villain in the third film.
Aside from Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), and Jeremy Renner (Hawk Eye) may also be back for “Captain America 3.”
But are fans ready to accept that Captain America could come to a natural end with “Captain America 3?” That is something co-director Anthony Russo commented in an interview with MTV News.
The film is slated for May 6, 2016 release.
