Fans Will 'Freak Out' Over New CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Character(s), Says Co-Director Anthony Russo

Now discussing possibly closing the franchise with third installment, as well as introducing new characters and fleshing out the characters already established, check out the latest from the Russo brothers.

Anthony and Joe Russo are still making the rounds for Captain America: The Winter Soldier's home release, and interviewers are still using this opportunity to ask the duo about the 2016 follow-up, Captain America 3. The sibling directors have yet to reveal anything major, but they recently teased the new character(s) in the threequel and possibility of bringing closure to Steve Rogers' story. "We just got another incredible draft from the writers and are very excited about the film," Anthony Russo told "I can't divulge who is going to be in the film, but I think the fans are going to freak out when they hear about it." When asked about Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier character, the co-director said, "The relationship between Cap and the Winter Soldier was never resolved at the end of the last movie. Thinking about where that relationship can go is a piece of the puzzle for us for sure. That character is a wonderfully, beautifully tragic figure in the sense of is he the world's most feared assassin or is he the world's longest serving POW. Is he innocent by reason of insanity or the equivalent of it because he's been mind controlled or is he irredeemable? Is he ever going to be acceptable to Cap again as the friend that he used to be before he was the Winter Soldier? These are very philosophical, emotional questions that pique our interest and definitely form one layer of the next movie."

When asked which of Earth's Mightiest Heroes (besides Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye) might show up in Captain America 3, the Russos would not even confirm if Black Widow will return. "As far as where else we want to take the character, we just want to keep moving Cap forward," said Anthony. "We wanted to push the character forward into the modern age with The Winter Soldier, and we want to keep pushing the character forward. We always want to be true to who Captain America is, but we want to surprise people about where he can go and what he's capable of. That's about as specific as I can get about where we might take him." Meanwhile, MTV News also spoke with the co-directors and asked them whether they'd follow Iron Man 3 in bringing closure to the Captain America franchise with the third movie. "It is a hard question to answer because it gets to the specific of where the narratives are going," teased Anthony Russo. "I will say this: yes, for satisfying storytelling, you want a beginning, middle and end. That’s the natural arc that we all thrive off of in narrative." He continued, "The great thing about the Marvel universe, just like the publishing, it’s a very vast, inter-connected universe, where characters will have their rise and fall, so to speak, and hand off to other characters,” Anthony Russo said. “As the cinematic universe moves forward, you may start to see the cinematic universe adopt that same pattern, as the publishing has, where there’s closure with some characters and new beginnings with other characters. How those hand-offs are made is always part of the fun." What do you think?

This may be our chance at getting the greatest Marvel trilogy until Avengers 3. The anticipation is killing me.

Black Panther would be great, but I'd rather him be introduced in Avengers or his own movie, rather than be another black sidekick for Cap.
JoJo1982 - 8/27/2014, 11:02 AM
It has to be Black Panther!!!! Well that and Namor!!!!

Cause that would make me freak out lol
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 8/27/2014, 11:03 AM
@TheFirstAvenger I think Black Panther will show up in this movie too.He's the main character people want to see,or, Carol Danvers aka Ms Marvel.
YeezusWept - 8/27/2014, 11:03 AM

That was a great impression...

But you need more line breaks.

What if I have to tinkle?

@JoJo Black Panther would really make me freak out.
JoJo1982 - 8/27/2014, 11:04 AM
I think having Black Panther in it would somehow rival Batman vs Superman

Just think about it

Captain America = Superman
Black Panther = Batman

You merely adopted the dark..
Gusto - 8/27/2014, 11:06 AM

That would freak me out.

Cap will wear the Iron Patriot suit.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 8/27/2014, 11:07 AM
@StarYeezus I agree that Black Panther deserves his own film first,buuuuuut,just imagine how badass Black Panther will be with the RussoS directing.
JoJo1982 - 8/27/2014, 11:07 AM

Black panther deserves his own franchise
He can become Marvel's new golden boy
FirstAvenger - 8/27/2014, 11:07 AM

Plus if Cap's shield is destroyed he may need to take a trip to Wakanda. ;)

I knew the Russo's would take Cap 3 to another level especially when they thought they MIGHT have to compete with Batman v Superman

I just ask that Cap finally has his chain mail battle armor with his winged helmet and have him go into battle on a Sky Cycle

I hope it is called

Captain America 'Operation Rebirth"

Can't wait to finally see Black Panther in the MCU
JoJo1982 - 8/27/2014, 11:09 AM
It would be funny if Marvel throws a curve ball and have Cap fighting against The Serpent Society!!!

It would also be a "haha" to Sony for getting the team villain hing before them
