And considering the ending of the this springs widely praised sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, it comes as no surprise that both directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen Feely have confirmed to CBM that Captain America's former best friend turned deadly assassin will feature heavily in the inevitable sequel.
The third Captain America, which has yet to garner a subtitle, will be realeased as part of Phase Three of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, on May 6th, 2016. As well as featuring the return of the Winter Soldier, it is also expected to be the last outing for Chris Evans as Captain America, with many presuming that Sebastian Stan will take up the mantle of the patriotic super-soldier post Avengers 3, in a suspectd lead up to a big screen adaptation of Marvels Civil War storyline, in which many of our favorite heroes turned against each other over the right to keep their dual identities secret.
Also believed to make a reappearance in the third Captain America movie is Frank Grillo as Crossbones, one of Captain America's more formidable villains, but it is unknown as to whether Scarllett Johansson or Anthony Mackie will return as the Black Widow and Falcon, respectively.
