Where were you when S.H.I.E.L.D fell? If you're able to remember the answer to that question, then you know how much of an extreme impact Captain America: The Winter Soldier had not only on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also on its audience. You might think that things are now safe for Steve Rogers, however, Joe and Anthony Russo are teasing an even bigger game-changer for Captain America 3. Even more surprising is the fact that Kevin Feige has had the idea for the next film in his mind for almost a decade or so.
Crave Online recently spoke with Joe and Anthony Russo, who having been busy promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier's home video release, and got all of the dirty details. With the early stages of Captain America 3 in play since February, the brothers took the time to tease some of the work they've been doing behind the scenes. And what sort of Marvel tease would be complete without some crucial Kevin Feige info being dropped? Said Joe Russo,
"If you’ve been talking to Kevin, 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."
This is no surprise, considering how long Kevin Feige sat on the name of the actor cast as Thanos, as well as the fact that the Mad Titan was going to be in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Of course, that didn't stop him from teasing us about something big being on the horizon. It's this type of speculation that keeps the fans on the edge of their toes, and refreshing their favorite movie and comic news websites for the next story. Which starts to make us eager fans wonder, what could be so big that the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe may have been built around it?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a presence in theaters since 2008,meaning there is about six years of existing big screen Marvel history that can be built upon in Captain America 3. When you think how much time has been put into planning everything out so far, and the fact that the movie is being touted as an event on level with the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D., that means that what we can expect probably won't be some kind of secondary storyline that Feige happens to be a fan of. Whatever those in charge have up their sleeves for Captain America 3 is huge, and at this point we're only left to speculate exactly what is going to happen. Is it possible that not all of The Avengers will make it to Avengers 3?
Captain America 3 will be in theaters on May 6th, 2016. Its official subtitle is only known to a specific few right now (Joe Russo wants to "announce the titlesoon"), but there is one big idea we have regarding what that subtitle will be. Continue onto page 2 for a bit of comic geek speculation...
