Captain America 3 writers want to introduce MODOK to the Marvel-verse

10 months agoby:

With the Blu-ray/DVD release of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER hitting in less than a month, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been talking a great deal about their experience writing the film, as well as how the plot of WINTER SOLDIER came about. Years ago, they mentioned that they wanted Peter Dinklage as MODOK in the sequel. Obviously that never came to pass, but they still want to bring him into the mix.

Christopher Markus, in regards to how the story started:

I know at some point Kevin Feige suggested “Well, why don’t we just take down SHIELD? And have Cap have a hand in it?” He’s one man versus this giant organisation – you’re not going to have him drive in with a tank so there’s going to be some underhandedness. And suddenly it begins to suggest a political conspiracy. If you put that 1940s man into present day geo-politics everything is going to seem like a conspiracy. It’s just going to seem dirty and underhanded and shifty, and people won’t be telling the truth. I have a tendency to believe that it was exactly the same way in 1945 but it’s not how we view it. It becomes a political conspiracy simply by putting 1945 Steve Rogers in present day America.

Markus, on characters he wanted to introduce:

I don’t know if there’s anybody that we had in the wings that we couldn’t pull off. There are people that I’m always wanting to bring in. I want to put Modok into something, but you can’t just drop a giant floating head in! It’s not like “Oh, we have to go talk to this guy – there’s something I should tell you about him first…” [laughs]. Suddenly the whole movie needs to take on that structure in order to accommodate him. I never win that fight! There were actually drafts where we had Hawkeye in it, but he didn’t have enough to do and suddenly it seemed like we were giving him short shrift. Hey, it’s a cameo!

As much as I like the idea of MODOK running into Captain America, there's somewhat of a grounded reality (especially in WINTER SOLDIER) that's already been established, so I imagine his design would be altered to fit those needs. Who knows? Kevin Fiege and Co. seem to know what the hell they're doing, and if they keep pumping out Marvel flicks that are the quality of WINTER SOLDIER and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, I'm certainly not going to complain.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will hit Blu-ray/DVD on September 9, 2014.

Excuse and forgive my fanboy ignorance but was Modok inspired by Krang or was Krang inspired by Modok? They look awfully similar. Well to me at least.

That Blu Ray cover

Is astoundingly awful. Why don't studios replicate the poster art for the covers?

They set it up perfect in Winter Soldier to have Dr. Zola become MODOK. Kind of like what they are doing with Jarvis becoming Vision. I'd like to see that, also feel free to use the more robotic design from the ultimate comics.

I don't understand why Hawkeye was left out of The Winter Soldier.

There was plenty of room for him to have a decent sized role. I think omitting Hawkeye from The Winter Soldier was a missed opportunity. He could have and a few crucial bad ass moments that could have further cemented him as a major part of the team without worrying about being overshadowed by Iron man or Thor or The Hulk.

Falcon's role was great in Winter Soldier and I enjoyed the performance of the actor playing him. Still...had they left him out and put Hawkeye in...that would have worked too. I don't think it would have been possible to have both of them in it though....I mean Falcon, Widow, Hawkeye and Cap all in one movie - Falcon and Hawkeye both would have been short-changed. As it is...what we got was a brilliant movie.

I would have been fine if Hawkeye got shortchanged as long as he was in it. He's already established, and didn't need much screen time. I think they could have had him show up toward the end to help out. He didn't need to do much else.

I was hoping Redofrd would turn into MODOK...

I was seriously hoping Redford was going to like either be Red Skull or MODOK, instead of just a crazy guy with power. It wasn't very super villainy, and the good turned bad Bucky was played out with all of the bad cliches.

We need Captain America to go after a real supervillain next time. MODOK would be perfect. If they can do what they did with Arnim Zola, then they should easily find a way to put a man in a flying wheelchair with a high IQ.

(Anyone else hope Eric the Midget from Howard

Once you have Cap teaming up with Thor, battling a killer robot and presumably facing off against Thanos in one way or another, frankly the idea of M.O.D.O.K isn't so weird or that much of a stretch. The more you expand the Marvel cinematic universe, the weirder it's going to get. It'd be cool to see M.O.D.O.K show up, but as far as Cap is concerned I want to see him face off against Hydra and a fully roboticised Arnim Zola.

Would be cool to see, but I have no idea in hell how Marvel would pull off the design convincingly. But again, they pulled off a talking, gun shooting Raccoon and a talking tree just fine, so maye this won't be a such a big problem for them to accomplish.

Great idea. MODOK could also carry over into Doctor Strange, Agents of SHIELD and maybe even Inhumans too. They're doing such a great job so far and in my opinion only have two stinkers (Iron Man 2 and 3) so I'm really into whatever they want to do, particularly with the Captain America installments which I feel are the strongest so far (I'd also lump Avengers and Guardians in there).

That's actually why that whole "in my opinion" thing made it into the comment. Because it's...you know...my opinion, man.
