Captain America: The Winter Soldier is not released in UK cinemas until March 28th, and then arrives in the US a week later. However, it turns out that Marvel are so impressed with the production of the sequel, and the positive test screenings, that they are already planning Captain America 3. What’s more, they want the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Russo Brothers, to return.
Negotiations wouldn’t begin until after “Winter Soldier” bows but sources say Marvel has been so impressed with the production of the film, as well as with strong results from recent test screenings, that the studio has moved fast to attach the brothers to the next installment.
Since many of the actors have options for a third installment, a threequel is likely on the cards as long as “Winter Soldier” performs well.
Kevin Feige will produce with Chris Evans returning in the title role.
