Marvel confirms Captain America 3 for May 2016 release!

1 year agoby:

After a record-breaking weekend at the box office with CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, Marvel has officially announced that CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 will open on May 6, 2016, which was the same date rumored by The Hollywood Reporter earlier last month. Now that the date is confirmed for the third solo Cap outing, the tables are set for the "man out of time" to square off with Zack Snyder's BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, which is also set for release on May 6, 2016. That's one hell of a game of "release date chicken" if you ask me.

The "untitled CAPTAIN AMERICA 3" will once again star Chris Evans as the titular character and it's believed the sequel will continue the storyline of The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) to some degree, while introducing some new villains (possibly "psychotic 1950's Cap") and likely returning ones (Frank Grillo as Crossbones, perhaps?) . Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, as well as screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning to continue Cap's story, which will follow 2015's ANT-MAN, unless Marvel sneaks another one inbetween.

For Evans, this has got to be one hell of an exhausting stretch. Seeing him in his new Cap duds while filming for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON on the weekend that CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER opens makes you feel like the guy never gets a break from the red, white, and blue. With Cap 3 so close on the horizon (and THE AVENGERS 3 still in the mix), the actor is probably feeling the pangs of superhero stardom, but it won't be too long before he can hang it up and get behind the camera instead of in front of it, as are his intentions. Correction to this: Apparently, we can quash those "retiring" rumors now, as Evans put them to bed last week.

You can catch CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER in theaters now. Cap returns next summer in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON on May 1, 2015, and will be back at it again the following summer with CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 on May 6, 2016.

 

Extra Tidbit: SPOILER TIDBIT: I would love to see Evans pass the Cap torch to Sebastian Stan, as it was done in the comics. I don't think Steve Rogers needs to die as a result of it, but having him hang it up and leave it to his old friend would be a fitting cinematic tribute, both to Evans and the comics.

Great news and a great time to be a Marvel fan.

I'd like to see them switch it up and have Bucky become U.S. Agent.

I can see Captain America having a smaller role in his own "solo" movies as his supporting cast (Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Black Widow, Falcon, Bucky) gets bigger.

My money will go to Captain America, because Winter Soldier was simply a fantastic action film. I'll wait on word of mouth for Batman vs Superman, because I didn't like Man of Steel and every bit of news on this film has been one massive disappointment after another.

Well IF I had to choose only one movie on May 6 2016 I would give my money to Cap 3. I'd see Bats vs Supes the week after. Sad thing is a vast majority of people will want a "winner", for some reason. And if there HAS to be a winner, I think it's already a win-win for Marvel an Disney as no matter what kind of business (unless it bombs big time, which it won't) Cap 3 does, it will still make some very good coin eve up against DC's two number one guys.

That's a shame...

Bats and Supes is going to blow Capt out of the water! I really enjoy Captain America, they're doing a great job with it, but it's not as strong as Batman and Superman-togehter. If it was Avengers 2 going head to head with BvS, THEN I would think they might have a run for they're money.

Honestly too, fanboys are going to see both that weekend regardless, but the midnight opener and weekend take will be won by DC.

F**k it, if Chris keeps playing Cap the way he has, he can be the man out of time...all the time. Winter Soldier...what a movie! If a gun was put to my head...and they said...Cap 3 or Batman /Superman...Marvel would win. That's actually hyper me answering, given that I'm still on a high after having watched the movie. No, what I'd really say is...no...I choose both of them...and then I'd be shot.

Damn

What the...? I didn't see part 2 yet, and they confirmed part 3! Now I know Captain American survives! This is a really big spoiler.

I'm sure Captain America 3 is gonna be great, but it's gonna get SLAUGHTERED by Batman/Superman as far as box office is concerned. May 6, 2016 is gonna be a FANTASTIC day for movie fans though.

Has Batman vs Supes started shooting? I'm not saying I want this to happen, I actually don't, but I have a feeling AT LEAST Ben Affleck is going to end up dropping out. I wouldn't be surprised if the entire thing is scrapped. At least this "version."

This sounds like an epic match up. I wish MTV still did their Celebrity Deathmatch tv show, and did Cap vs. Superman.

Also, I would love to see them pass the Cap helm to Sebastian Stan. I dont know all the backstory, besides what I read about on Joblo, but he seems to be a great actor who's career would leap forward with a starring role like that. Heck, it will probably boost his popularity quite a bit just from the Winter Soldier.

Batman v. Superman just needs to move to the summer

DC films have done well during the June/July period, their need to "show Marvel who's boss" is not flattering and makes them look stupid versus just letting Marvel have their release window as they've always had. Then again, I can easily see Marvel moving to April 2016 since CA: TWS did incredibly well.

Evans isn't retiring from acting

He's already come out and said that's not the case after the retirement story gained some steam.

You're right. Looks like he clarified last week. First I'd heard of it. Will update.

I'm a DC guy, but at the moment I'm very much more excited for Captain America 3 than Batman vs Superman. Especially after how epic and badass Winter Soldier was.

But yeah, it should be interesting to see if either film moves their release date. If both films stay put, it'll be one hell of a battle.

We all can predict what will happen.
****Spoilers****


Crossbone's clearly alive. Shoot's Steve "dead". Bucky take's the shield and forever helms as Captain America.

I would like to see Steve pass the torch over to Bucky and for him not to die. That would be too depressing to see Captain America get killed.
