Captain America: The Winter Soldier doesn’t open in theaters for another two weeks, but that isn’t stopping fans from talking about what looks to be one of the most entertaining films of year. Having already seen it, I can assure you the sequel is one of the best superhero films ever. So to keep this from being spoilery, we will jump ahead to the next sequel, Captain America 3, which in itself is an exciting date if things continue on this path.
That’s because fans can’t even stop about thinking what it would be like to see Captain Americago up againstBatman Vs. Superman on May 6, 2016. But before you can speculate what the sequel will be about, especially having not yet seen Winter Soldier, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely dropped one tiny nugget as to what we can expect. Hit the jump for more.
During the film’s press tour, Den Of Geek was able to interview the screenwriters about Winter Soldier and what its sequel could be about. While it is obviously way too early to delve into heavy details, Markus did share something of interest that sheds a bit of light on Captain America 3:
“All I’m saying is psychotic 1950s Cap.”
Now all you have to do is type that into Google, and you’ll get a plethora of information regarding “psychotic 1950s Cap.” But for those who aren’t familiar with the actual storyline – like myself – here is what Markus is talking about.
While Cap was on ice in the 1950s, a soldier named William Burnside, who had worshiped the original Cap, had blackmailed the U.S. Government into becoming the new Captain America. There is a complicated history to this, one that involves going into spoiler territory. But he encounters Jack Monroe, who shares his fascination. Together they uncover the files for the Super Soldier serum, and inject the unstable formula into themselves to become the new Captain America and Bucky Barnes.
We’ll just leave it at that for now. As the storyline itself is insane, if Winter Soldier is as engaging and thrilling to you as it was for me, then I can’t wait to see what Markus and McFeely come up with for Captain America 3.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in theaters on April 4.
