Unsurprisingly, after the overwhelming praise the LA press gave Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony and Joe Russo have been signed on by Marvel and Disney to direct Captain America 3. Though title star Chris Evans will return for the third instalment and a third Avengers, he stated To Galmour UK magazine that that he would “never trade in the decision” he made to star as Captain America, but that he doesn't feel as though his “heart’s as in it as it once was,” before reiterating that after the spell of Marvel movies he intends to take a break from acting. In the meantime the Russo brothers talked recently to Collider about their movie and their plans for the sequel...
“Well now that Kevin Feige said it that means we can talk about it, I guess,” said Joe Russo. “That’s great. We’re just in the formative stages of it right now. We just started breaking story with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and we’re just getting an idea of what we wanna do with it. It’s crazy working on it before the movie even comes out because you want to see what people respond to in the film. You want to get some inspiration from what people like about the film so you go, ‘Okay, this is what we gotta lean into in the next movie’ or ‘this is what we should move away from, this didn’t work so well.’ So we’re just in that phase of breaking story but waiting to see how people respond to the movie.”
