Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-Ray Review
The Captain America franchise is a somewhat strange creature among the other features included in the recent trend toward kicking out tons of comic book films. They are films born mostly out of the desire to get The Avengers off the ground, and create possibilities for crossovers. Unlike most other comic adaptations, especially going back a few years, this is a franchise fighting the uphill battle of its main character not having a host of fans to claim. Despite that stumbling block, the first film was one of the better action films to come along in a while.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier does a lot of things very well, and infuses new twists on developing the character, but it shrugs off much of what made the first film so interesting and entertaining in favor of spectacle, and the result is a film that isn’t terrible, »

One of the biggest hits of the year so far has been Captain America: The Winter Soldier, making it a bigger success than the first film. It helps that it follows up The Avengers and cross-pollinates with other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, what also helped it along was a fresh story that was less of a gee-whiz superhero film and more inspired by the conspiracy thrillers of the 1970s. Now that the film has been released on home video, the directors and writers have sat down and dissected it in their commentary track, available on the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray. (Sorry, folks… the DVD does not have the commentary on it, so you’ll have to spring for a Blu-ray player if you want to listen. But, seriously, why don’t you have a Blu-ray player already? You do? Thought so. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) Commentators: Anthony Russo (co-director), Joe Russo (co-director), Christopher Markus »

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Spoilers Ahead
Specifically they say the next film is set to change the game for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the way that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" did with its reveal of Hydra and implosion of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the process.
Yet, while the Hydra reveal was a twist kept right up until the film itself, it seems the still to be announced title of the next film will give a big indication as to what effect the next film in the series will have on the movies in its wake. Joe Russo tells Crave Online:
"The big thing we knew we had to deal with in Captain America 2 was the fall of Hydra. »

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier shifting the landscape of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D., it seems that directors Anthony and Joe Russo are planning an event of similar proportions for 2016’s Captain America 3, with the duo stating that there’s a “very, very big idea” at the heart of the threequel during a promotional interview for the home-entertainment release of The Winter Soldier.
“If you’ve been talking to Kevin Feige, the title [for Captain America 3] has been in place probably for ten years in his brain,” Joe tells Crave Online. “It’s all part of the road map that he’s laid out, and it’s all part of the bigger plan. I think the way Kevin does it is there are big pieces that he knows he wants to build towards, but the way that you get there is open to interpretation and improv a little bit. »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to debut on Blu-ray today, and to celebrate, directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are continuing to make the press rounds in support of the release. Today, they reveal that the title of Captain America 3 has been planned for years, and that the storyline will once again greatly alter the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Joe and Anthony Russo claim that Captain America 3 will be balanced on a pivotal moment on par with the discovery that H.Y.D.R.A. has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. and that the implications will have a profound ripple effect on all future movies that come in its wake, starting with Marvel Phase Three and continuing into Phase Four. »
Last week Jeremy Renner suggested that he could be set to follow-up his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron with another outing as Hawkeye in 2016′s Captain America 3; however, as it happened, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had planned to include the archer in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Renner’s schedule ultimately preventing him from appearing. Now, during an interview with Screen Rant, co-director Joe Russo has detailed just exactly how Hawkeye would have figured into this year’s Phase Two solo sequel:
What it was going to be, we were trying to complicate the relationship between Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D agent friends. If Hawkeye got a call from S.H.I.E.L.D saying Captain America is a fugitive, would he listen to that call or not listen to that call? That sequence actually was heartbreaking for us to cut it. »

Last Week, it was revealed that Hawkeye may have a supporting role in Captain America 3. Jeremy Renner revealed that he might return with more to do after being cut from the original Captain America: The Winter Soldier screenplay. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely had included Hawkeye in a very small cameo, but it wasn't known in what capacity or how he played into the overall storyline.
Speaking with Screen Rant about the deleted moments, director Joe Russo went onto explain the scene in more detail, giving a true reason for Hawkeye to be present as Captain America becomes a terrorist suspect.
"What it was going to be, we were trying to complicate the relationship between Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D agent friends. If Hawkeye got a call from S.H.I.E.L.D saying Captain America is a fugitive, would he listen to »
Poor Hawkeye. Marvel’s greatest archer can’t seem to catch a break in the film franchise. From a cameo appearance in Thor and a zombified role in The Avengers to not even making the cut for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Jeremy Renner has long talked about his desire to play the Hawkeye (real name: Clint Barton) he signed on for years ago, and in next year’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, he’ll be finally getting some spotlight attention. Rumor has it, he might even be a key part of Captain America 3 in 2016.

So we know Marvel's Captain America threequel has a May 6th, 2016 release date, we know directors Anthony and Joe Russo will be back at the helm, and we know Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will once again be on writing duties. We've also been told that there's a good chance the movie will feature a much bigger role for Bucky/The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and will likely pick up the story right after the end of the last film, as Cap (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) try to pick up his trail. Now recently the Russo brothers have been teasing this movie quite a bit, but they haven't really let anything concrete slip yet, so we thought it'd be a good time to find out what else you CBMers want to see before anything official is announced. Character wise, by far the biggest wish was for the return »
Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are continuing to make the press rounds for Marvel's Phase Two Blu-ray release on September 9. In doing so, the filmmaking duo continue to drop new tidbits about their impending sequel Captain America 3.
The brothers are returning to direct, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely currently writing the screenplay, the same team behind Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. When Robert Redford was revealed to be a villainous character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, some thought he may be a present-day version of Red Skull, a character who hasn't been seen since escaping in Captain America: The First Avenger.
In an interview with Screen Rant, when asked if Red Skull could make a return to the McU, Anthony Russo wouldn't offer any specific story details, he did hint that anything is possible in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »
Hayley Atwell will reprise the role of Peggy Carter on the small screen in early 2015, and Marvel have announced two additions to the cast of the eight part Agent Carter TV series. It will air when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes a hiatus and is set before the events of the Marvel One-Shot which was included on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.
Chad Michael Murray (Fruitvale Station) has been cast in the role of Ssr Agent Jack Thompson, while Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse) will portray Agent Daniel Sousa, both of whom will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the Ssr in New York City. Both are newly created characters, so we can’t turn to the comic books for details!

Marvel announced today that Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj have signed on to play series regulars in ABC's mid-season comic book adventure Marvel's Agent Carter, alongside Hayley Atwell as the title character. Take a look at the official press release from Marvel, then read on for new details on the series from directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.

With Hayley Atwell already locked in to star in ABC's eight episode first season of Agent Carter, it is time to cast her supporting players.

He’s probably been one of the most underused (major) characters of the recent Marvel world takeover but Jeremy Renner is rumoured to have some time, finally, in the spotlight for the upcoming Captain America 3.
To his credit, he hasn’t kicked off about it too much and although this full role isn’t a given, it would make sense for Cap to have a new sidekick after Black Widow’s inclusion in The Winter Soldier. Obviously, we don’t know yet what happens in the build-up before Captain America 3 but Hawkeye can be a handy character, and Renner fits his style impressively. Speaking to Collider regarding what’s next, he gave this little tit-bit:
“There are rumblings of Captain America 3. I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I’ve got to find the time, man (laughs). I’m trying to stay home and I can’t. »

Having been absent from Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye will return next year for an expanded role in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron [check out a new image of Renner and Whedon on set here], and it looks like we might be seeing more of the archer in Phase Three of the McU:
“There are rumblings of [a Hawkeye appearance] in Captain America 3,” said Renner in an interview with Collider. “I don’t know what’s going to happen there. I’ve got to find the time, man (laughs). I’m trying to stay home and I can’t.”
Given that Captain America 3 was initially set to go head-to-head against Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before the DC ensemble moved forward two months, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directors Joe and Anthony Russo were looking to squeeze in a few »

Earlier this month, Captain America: The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed that an early draft of their script included a cameo from another Avenger, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, although he ultimately didn't appear in the Marvel Phase Two sequel. It seems the writers may be trying to put Hawkeye in their next movie, Captain America 3, with Jeremy Renner himself revealing there have been "rumblings" about his inclusion in the Phase Three follow-up.
"There are rumblings of Captain America 3. I don't know what's going to happen there. I've got to find the time, man (laughs). I'm trying to stay home and I can't."
It isn't known if Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have finished the script for Captain America 3 yet, but with its May 6, 2016 release date less than two years away, production will likely begin sometime next year, after Ant-Man wraps principal photography.
