THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER Director Kari Skogland Open To Helming CAPTAIN AMERICA 4

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier director Kari Skogland says she's open to directing Captain America 4 if Kevin Feige calls, while debunking a major rumor that's been doing the rounds about the series.

News broke on Friday that Marvel Studios is developing Captain America 4 with writers Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson. The film doesn't have a director, but putting Kari Skogland - who directed all six episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier - at the helm seems like a logical next step.

Talking to Cinema Blend, the filmmaker made it clear that she's open to directing the film, but answered the question in the most noncommital way possible (it essentially boiled down to her saying that if Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige calls, she'll answer the phone).

"I think if Marvel called me to do anything, if they called me to film the phone book, I would do it," Skogland admitted. "The Marvel characters are all very, very rich. I’ve become friends with Anthony and Sebastian, and I really enjoyed working with them. And Emily and Daniel Bruhl. I mean, I’ve worked with them for a couple of years, so of course, I have a special place in my heart. But as I said, if Kevin [Feige] picked up the phone, I would answer it."

In a separate conversation with Collider, the director was even vaguer with her Captain America 4 comments. "I still don't know anything about it. I don't even know that the headline's true. So I have no idea about any of that."

She did, however, finally debunk one of the biggest rumors about The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: was there ever a pandemic storyline? "Yeah, you can debunk that," Skogland told the site. 

It's still early days for Captain America 4, and it's possible Spellman and Musson won't be the film's only credited writers. With that in mind, we shouldn't bank on Skogland returning to direct, but it does feel like it would be a mistake not to at least strongly consider her when the time comes.
