Following the huge success of Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it should be no surprise that the studio is moving ahead with the highly anticipated sequel. Earlier today, according to the ever reliable, moviecastingcall.org, it appears that we may finally have some confirmation on who is in fact directing the third outing for the Star-Spangled-Man.
According to the site, Joe and Anthony Russo are both returning to the directors' chair, or should I say, their respective chairs, because the two will not share a chair, you know? That's kinda weird... Anyway, for the follow-up, which is set to co-star fellow Avengers-star, Iron Man, again portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. The site also mentions "[The film] will begin production in Atlanta, GA this coming April." While also adding that the shoot will commence in April, and will wrap up in August this year, quite a long shoot, huh?
Along with the confirmation of directors, and the shooting dates, it also appears that we have a clear idea of who Daniel Brühl will play. The Rush star will (according to this site at least) portray Baron Zemo, the iconic Hydra villain, who fans have been dying to see on the big screen. This confirms many theories that have been floating around online since the announcement of the talented actor's arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In addition to all this, it appears we have our very first synopsis(?) for the anticipated film. "In Captain America: Civil War, billionaire Tony Stark is pitted against Captain America aka Steve Rogers in an ethical face-off over the U.S government's Superhuman Registration Act, which requires all super powered individuals to register their powers and report to S.H.I.E.L.D." On paper, this sounds quite similar to the Mark Millar-written story which sent shockwaves throughout the Marvel 616-Universe in the comic books, will it do the same in film universe as well? One would only hope so!
