Captain America Writers Talk The Avengers; Say They Have Turned In Outline For Cap Sequel.
Captain America: The First Avenger scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely sat down to talk about a couple of different thing related to Cap including The Avengers, the sequel, and a Howling Commando movie.
Captain America screen writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely sat down with IFC To talk about numerous things Cap. Subjects that were touched on include seeing Steve in The Avengers trailer, where they might take the sequel, and that they have also turned in the outline for the sequel. Another interesting tid bid is the possibility of a Howling Commandos movie.
On Cap In The Avengers:
"It's exciting, because at least from the scene where he says something about Tony Stark underneath his armor, you can tell he's still 1940s Steve Rogers. He hasn't become gum-chewing, wise-cracking, internet guy - so I'm glad we started him off in a sufficiently character-driven way that now we can pop him into the present and it will serve him as a character. He doesn't just vanish into the woodwork."
On writing the Captain America Sequel:
"We needed to read Joss' 'Avengers' before we could go on and do 'Captain America 2.' We needed to see if he did anything different, character-wise - and he hadn't, he's an excellent writer - but we also needed to see what he had done in terms of Steve poking around the modern day and dealing with it."
"So much of Captain America's adventures occur in the present day, so there are a lot of things I'd like to touch on. That said, we did leave the center section of 'Captain America' baggy enough to let him have adventures you didn't see [in the first film]. So, we kind of have enough room to play with [for the sequel]."
"Still, if he had another adventure entirely set in World War II, the stakes are kind of lessened, because you know he survives and you know what happens to Bucky and you know the Howling Commandos survive long enough to have a toast in a bar."
"You know Cap wins and you know that whoever he was fighting didn't destroy the world, because you've already seen things that happen after it. So the stakes are, well... But then again, did that bother anyone with the second 'Indiana Jones' movie?"
On a Howling Commando movie:
"They're certainly cool, and in a different movie, we would've certainly had a little more 'Kelly Heroes' or 'Magnificent Seven". thing going on.(Talking about if they had more screen time)
"It would've been like 'Inglourious Commandos."
"Personally, I'm a big fan of that type of movie - the ne'er-do-wells banding together to fight a common cause. So I'm open to it, but... well... I'll just say I'm open to it."
