Anthony And Joe Russo Talk CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 And The Winter Soldier's Return
We know that The Winter Soldier will be back in Captain America 3, and Anthony and Joe Russo have now dropped some more hints about what to expect from his arc as Steve Rogers continues to hunt his former friend down. It also sounds like the movie will take place "several" years after the last...
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was obviously a major departure from 2011's WWII set The First Avenger, and despite the fact that it took place roughly two years after the events of The Avengers, the biggest changes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe came in the final act of that movie when S.H.I.E.L.D. was disbanded. Based on several different reports, Avengers: Age of Ultron is shaping up to be another game changer (especially of recent reports of Cap assembling a brand new team are to be believed), and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Joe Russo alluded to just that. "The difference between First Avenger and Winter Soldier is that seventy years had elapsed between the two movies. Cap was waking up in a world that was a million miles away from the one he came from. That gave us a narrative motivation to push the he tonal and stylistic content of the world forward. We don’t have that same time elapsed here. It’s the world Cap woke up in still, even though it’s several years later and some other significant events have happened. At the same time, we are pushing Cap to a place he hasn’t been before."
There are really two ways of reading into these comments. Either he's referring to the fact that it's been several years since Steve Rogers woke up in the present day or that several years have passed since the events of The Winter Soldier. Personally, I would say the latter, but even if that's not the case it still sounds as if the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron will shake things up for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Of course, during all of this, the hunt for Bucky is still on, and after Joe asked, "[If] you don’t have the memories of who you are, are you still that person?" Anthony responded, "It’s a a rich, philosophically complex human identity and relationship. And it becomes an important question for Cap, a guy who’s lost everybody in his life now." So, it sounds as if the threequel will take a very different direction to the comic books as Bucky won't instantly regain his memories and Steve will have to wrestle whether this man is the same he fought alongside during the war.
