Anthony & Joe Russo Will Also Direct 'Captain America 3' for Marvel
While Marvel is still working on finishing up Captain America: The Winter Soldier for release in April, they know who they want to direct for a third installment in the comic book franchise. Variety reports the directing team of Anthony & Joe Russo, who were brought on to direct the second film in the Captain America series, will come back for Captain America 3, however, the film hasn't officially been greenlit. Supposedly, official negotiations will not begin until after The Winter Soldier hits theaters, but executives at Marvel are so pleased with the results of the next installment, they definitely want to bring the duo back.
Of course, it's still early for speculation on Captain America 3, mainly because we don't know what happens in The Winter Soldier, or how events in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man might effect the Marvel universe. And as if there was any doubt, Chris Evans will return as Steve Rogers and Kevin Feige will be producing. A writer and release date have yet to be determined, but the Russo brothers are already working with Marvel on an outline of the story for the third film's story arc. The earliest we could see this sequel would be 2016, and there's already an empty slot with no title attached yet which happens to be the same date that Batman vs. Superman moved into earlier this month.
