Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be back for the third installment of the franchise. The two have confirmed that they will come back for Captain America 3, with Joe saying, “Well now that Kevin [Feige, Marvel’s President Of Production] said it, that means we can talk about it, I guess. We’re just in the formative stages of it right now. We just started breaking the story and we’re just getting an idea of what we wanna do with it.”
He added, “It’s crazy working on it before the movie even comes out, because you want to see what people respond to in the movie. You want to get some inspiration from what people like about the film so you go, ‘Okay, this is what we gotta lean into in the next movie’ or ‘this is what we should move away from, this didn’t work so well.'”
Captain America 3 will go up against Batman vs. Superman, with a release date set for May 6th, 2016. Marvel said that they will be keeping that release date despite the DC comic book movie having settled into the date late last year.
