Winter Soldier writers hint at "psychotic 1950's Cap" for Captain America 3

Mar. 20, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

In an interview with Den of Geek, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had a conversation about the upcoming film, and teased a possible story arc for the third movie. The duo will be back for CAPTAIN AMERICA 3, as well as directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

Markus and McFeely were asked if the new movie will follow any of the storylines from the comics, while also following up on the events from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.

McFeely: Oh yeah, you can probably predict some of the threads we would like to pick up again that we’ve laid out there. And we always go back to the comics and dive back in and look at anything we’ve missed in the last few years that might be relevant.

Markus: We’ve definitely set out on a more realistic road in the Cap movies, you know. Even more grounded than in the other MCU movies. And so it kind of rules out Cap fighting the Dinosaur Man or something like that. There are some that aren’t gonna start and other ones that -- I mean there’s a couple we’re playing with right now that we really want to take elements from. Which we'll not reveal.

Markus: All I’m saying is psychotic 1950s Cap.

Captain America was battling Communists in the 1950s, and if you follow the comics, you know during that period Steve Rogers should have been an ice cube due to what happened to him in the 1940s. However, later it was revealed it wasn't Rogers wearing the costume, but William Burnside, a man who also was injected with the super soldier serum. There were side effects though, and Burnside eventually went insane before being placed in suspended animation. Later he was brainwashed into becoming the leader of a Neo-Nazi army.

Earlier in the interview the writing duo were also asked about keeping the tone and spirit faithful when adapting a comic storyline into a movie.

McFeely: Exactly right. Like, you know, we kind of knew we’re not gonna use the Cosmic Cube. We’ve been there, we’ve done that. He’s not Russian exactly. He’s not a Soviet experiment.

Markus: We didn’t want to bring back the Skull so soon.

McFeely: Right.

Markus: Let alone have him inside the head of somebody else.

McFeely: There were just some things that would be much tougher to do on screen as they are in the comic.

Markus: But yeah, it is a matter of being really respectful to the tone and the spirit of it without necessarily having to duplicate the exact details.

They didn't want to bring back Red Skull so soon? Does that mean he might appear in CAPTAIN AMERICA 3?

Markus: (laughs) I only said that because I think it’s fairly clear he didn’t die in that first movie but f*cked off into Wonderland.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER looks like it's going to be a huge movie, and from the sound of things, the events in the new movie might really shake things up in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. Very interested in knowing what direction Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely and the Russo Brothers will go with the third movie.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will open on April 4th, 2014, and CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016.

Cap 3 will beeeeeeeeee.....

Disappointed in his government, Steve Rogers walks away from the mantle of CA and they get a new guy (US AGENT) to fill in. US AGENT does things a bit different than Rogers would, which pisses Rogers off. This would be awesome because we would get to see US AGENT on film for the 1st time and it would open up a window of opportunities for a WEST COAST AVENGERS movie.

Looking forward to TWS...

Reviews have been great for this sequel and I am excited. Though I can't be the only one who wants to see Baron Zemo in the third.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but I'd like to see The Commission get involved and pit Cap vs U.S. Agent.

It is too early for me to think about Captain America 3, still waiting on Captain America Winter Soldier, and Avengers Age of Ultron.

Personally I'm hoping to see Robert Redfords face shift near the end of the movie to reveal its a mask, and he's actually been the Red Skull pulling the political strings all along.

I had the same reaction when I heard RR signed on. I really think Red Skull is in this, just wearing a mask and in disguise.

Also, there is an official toy line that came out with 4 action figures. They were CA, Winter Soldier, Falcon AND Red Skull. So why put out a character that supposedly isn't in the movie in a line of toys that only has 4 collectible figures?

That's great and all, but I just want to see Winter Soldier already before we start talking about Captain America 3.

Yeah I agree it feels like they are jumping the gun with all the excitement of Cap 2 coming out. It is nice that they have an idea where they want to go with Cap 3, but they need to hold back a bit and see how Cap 2 does before leaking this stuff. They leak it for a calculated purpose, nice and early so they don't run into the problems of Fantastic Four over at Fox. Still this is a premature ejac for sure.

Hey, as long as they pull some older story lines from the comics, I'll be happy. Not really a big fan of the MCU only working from stories that are only a few years old.

Crap. You just reminded me that he played Zola! I just had to alter my comment below cause I thought he was the guy who became M.O.D.O.K.

I still want Jones coming back in the 3rd one just because he's Toby Jones!!!

I guess its about the kids digging this, because even as "grounded" as this supposedly is, to me it still comes off Power Ranger, Teenage mutant turtle lame to me.
