The Russo brothers teased Marvel fans with some saucy titbits for the upcoming “Captain America 3” movie, and at the same time, they shared some future plans for the studio. Joe and Anthony Russo were kind enough to share some info while speaking to CraveOnline in an exclusive interview.
Let’s get into the good stuff:
The journey so far has been carefully planned and the vision is also largely based on who is involved to bring the adaptations to life, the Russo’s said:
“If you’ve been talking to Kevin [Feige, President of Marvel Studios] 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.” “Yeah, I think the way Kevin does it is there are big pieces that he knows he wants to build towards, but the way that you get there is open to interpretation and improve a little bit,” “That’s defined by who gets involved with the project, the writers and directors involved in the project.”
They also addressed the inevitable fall of Hydra to setup the events that are set to take place in “Captain America 3”:
“The big thing we knew we had to deal with in Captain America 2 was the fall of Hydra. Similarly there is a very, very big idea at the center of Captain America 3. But how we get there is all up to us. And I think why Marvel has been so successful is because it’s been such a clear plan, that everything is interconnected and they’re building emotional capital with each movie that you can then trade off of in the next film.”
Cap’s emotional journey and the role of the supporting cast members have not been laid on the table since the idea of expanding Marvel’s universe was revealed. There is room for creativity to make fit what is needed to setup the expanded universe in line with the major events that decide the way forward for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“No, all that stuff is open for interpretation. Usually it’s just one big idea that alters the universe as a whole in some way, that has interconnectedness that he’s grabbed on to. That’s the case with Cap 3, but as far as villain and story arc and tone, all that stuff is left up to us.”
The third epic saga is due to hit theatres on May 6, 2016.
The Russos, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely who penned the second film are all back to take another swing at Marvel’s cap. Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige made it clear that he is willing to stick with a winning team that propelled Cap to stardom with “The Winter Soldier“ that raked in over $714 million worldwide.
