EXCLUSIVE: CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Writers Share Thoughts On Potential Future Villains
When I managed to speak briefly with the writers of Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 2016's Captain America 3 earlier this week, I made sure to ask which villains they would like to introduce in a future movie. They obviously couldn't say too much, but did reveal one character they're not sure we'll ever see on the big screen and another that at least one of them would be interested in introducing...if they can ever find a way to make it work in the tone established in this particular corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While they don't reveal who we'll see in Captain America 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely do share their thoughts on why some villains are harder to adapt than others, naming one specific example before revealing one they'd love to introduce...
Christopher Markus: That's a little tricky because some of them are theoretically very good. Some of them have great concepts but are really tough to pull off visually. Like Flag-Smasher who wants to destroy nations, and that's a terrorist and seems like a guy you could work with, but he literally has a cape and flies on flying skies, and then you're like, 'Ok, do we take away everything?' and then he's just a guy and we're not fully portraying the character. They're tricky to bring across. I always wanted to do MODOK., but it seems like we're leaving our grounded political arena way behind when you've got a giant floating head on a rocket chair.
Stephen McFeely: Exactly!
Christopher Markus: I'll do it one day, I'm telling you people!
It was clear talking to these guys that they love comic books and are very enthusiastic about the character and his supporting cast. Be sure to come back later this week for the full interview with the screenwriting duo as they talk about not using the Red Skull in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, whether or not Bucky had regained his memories by the end of that movie, their thoughts on deleted scenes, not backing down from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and much more.
