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’s upcoming ABC series “Agent Carter,” starring Haley Atwell as Peggy Carter, has added Chad Michael Murray (“One Tree Hill,” “Fruitvale Station”) as Strategic Scientific Reserve agent Jack Thompson and Enver Gjokaj (“Dollhouse”) as Ssr agent Daniel Sousa.
The series, from “Captain America” film series scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, will feature Carter attempting to balance routine office work for the Ssr while secretly working on missions with Howard Stark, played by Dominic Cooper.

"Dollhouse" alum Enver Gjokaj and "One Tree Hill" star Chad Michael Murray have both joined the cast of ABC's upcoming "Captain America" spinoff series "Agent Carter" which appears to be finally sorting out its supporting cast.
Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa, who will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the pre-shield Strategic Scientific Reserve in New York City. Murray has been cast in the role of Ssr Agent Jack Thompson in the eight episode series.
Set in 1946, Carter finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert Ssr, she must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America in the wake of losing Steve Rogers.

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.
Marvel is proud to announce the signing of two key series regulars, as Chad Michael Murray (Fruitvale Station, One Tree Hill) 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.
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. Rumors have swirled that Captain America: The First Avenger co-star Dominic Cooper may reprise his role as Howard Stark, but Peggy Carter's fellow Ssr agents need to be chosen as well. Captain America: The Winter Soldier screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been developing scripts and needed to fill the roles of two primary agents. »

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.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe of course takes inspiration from the same-named comic book empire. That’s why word from Marvel that Sam Wilson, typically the Falcon, would pick up the mantle of Captain America in an upcoming storyline got a lot of people buzzing that Captain America 3 might follow suit. Although, that’s not the case, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who previously penned The Winter Soldier, assure us.
Though the comic books featured various characters taking on the identity of Captain America, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers is safe for the mean time. When asked about the possibility of Falcon (Anthony Mackie in The Winter Soldier) becoming Captain America, McFeely said:
“We tend to stay on the sidelines when it comes to the comics. We wait and see what we’ll steal from in three or four years from now! [laughs].”
In other words, though he’s not ruling out the possibility, »

Scriptwriter Stephen McFeely told Metro that he didn't mind the stars adding dialogue, because they know their character's voices better than he does.
"The script was in pretty good shape when we started, but Chris had a lot of input on the scene where he's meeting Sam Wilson for the first time, and what it would take to make Captain America - who probably gets stopped in the street all the time - turn around for that extra conversation," he explained.
"And then he and Scarlett were involved in that scene in the car when they're driving to Camp Lehigh and they're talking about kissing and all that."
He added: "I think actors very often know their voices better than I do, so I have no problem with them adding a couple of lines to a »
Recently, Marvel announced that in the comics, Steve Rogers would lose the power of the Super Soldier Serum and The Falcon would take over as Captain America giving us our first (comic readers would say 2nd and be technically correct, but that's a debate about how comic book storylines work, not for here) Black Captain America.
SFX: We’ve just heard that the Falcon is taking over Cap’s role in the comic books. Do you think the movies can accommodate these kind of shake-ups or do they need to stay faithful to the big, »
It was announced last month that Steve Rogers would again be stepping down as Captain America and his old colleague Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, would be taking over the mantle. There have been rumours circling the future of the movie version of Captain America when Chris Evans’ contract runs out after Avengers 3.
Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who wrote Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, spoke with SFX about the possibility of the movies reflecting the comics.
“We tend to stay on the sidelines when it comes to the comics,” McFeely said. “We wait and see what we’ll steal from in three or four years from now!”
“I think the movies can accommodate almost anything, if there’s a need,” Markus added. “I think there is a much greater »

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are some of the golden boys over at Marvel Studios. Having penned Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and the pilot for the upcoming "Agent Carter" TV series, they show no signs of stopping as they'll also be writing Captain America 3. Speaking with SFX, the pair were asked about the tone of the upcoming film or if we should expect something as different as "The Winter Soldier" was from "The First Avenger." »
Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are currently working on the script for Captain America 3, which now has its May 6, 2016 release date all to itself, after Warner Bros. moved their highly-anticipated sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to March 2016.
While the writers wouldn't divulge any plot specifics for the sequel in a new interview with SFX, Christopher Markus teased that he would like to bring Modok into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, at some point. Here's what he had to say, when asked if there were any classic comic book characters they couldn't quite fit in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
"I don't know if there's anybody that we had in the wings that we couldn't pull off. There are people that I'm always wanting to bring in. I want to put Modok into something, but you »
I couldn't be happier that Marvel brought back the creative team that worked on Captain America: The Winter Soldier to develop Captain America 3. That team includes directors Anthony and Joe Russo, as well as screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. They have a great handle on these characters and, like the rest of us fans, they have other comic characters that they'd like to see introduced into Marvel's cinematic universe. In a recent interview with SFX, McFeely amusingly admits that Modok is one of those characters!
"I want to put Modok into something, but you can’t just drop a giant floating head in! It’s not like, ‘Oh, we have to go talk to this guy – there’s something I should tell you about him first…’ [laughs]. Suddenly the whole movie needs to take on that structure in order to accommodate him. I never win that fight!"

With "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" coming to DVD and Blu-ray, the film's scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely spoke to SFX Magazine about a number of topics related to the movie, the upcoming third film and the future of the franchise.
Markus says he's keen to fit Modok into the script of the third film if they can figure out how to explain a giant, floating head:
"I don't know if there's anybody that we had in the wings that we couldn''t pull off. There are people that I'm always wanting to bring in. I want to put Modok into something, but you can't just drop a giant floating head in! It's not like 'Oh, we have to go talk to this guy – there's something I should tell you about him first…' [laughs]. Suddenly the whole movie needs to take on that structure in order to accommodate him. I »

One major reason why we.re brazenly optimistic about Marvel.s announced Captain America 3 is that the team behind this year.s successful Captain America: The Winter Soldier will stay in place to guide the path of our nation.s proudest warrior. Instead of starting cold, the team of Anthony and Joe Russo (directors) -- as well as screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely . can pick up where they left off with Steve Rogers, and continue to expand on his recently shaken up world. What plans do they have in mind? The screenwriting duo sat down with SFX in an effort to promote the DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And in doing so, they talked about their previous process, what they learned about Cap as a character, and who they.d Love to bring in to future Captain America stories. For instance, now that Red Skull, »
With the Blu-ray/DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting in less than a month, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been talking a great deal about their experience writing the film, as well as how the plot of Winter Soldier came about. Years ago, they mentioned that they wanted Peter Dinklage as Modok in the sequel. Obviously that never came to pass, but they still want to bring him into the mix. Christopher Markus, in regards to how the story started: »

To help promote the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on blu-ray and dvd, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely spoke to SFX Magazine about a number of topics related Steve Rogers. On the tone of the third film, McFeely shared, " When we hit upon the Brubaker run of the comic book, we all said that, with certain exceptions,that’s the tone of Cap’s modern franchise. And you can imagine that with us back, with the Russos back, then if you like Winter Soldier you’ll hopefully like the third one, if we do it right!" Markus added that he's keen to fit Modok into the script if he can somehow figure out how to explaain a giant, floating head. Said Christopher, "I don’t know if there’s anybody that we had in the wings that we couldn’t pull off. There are people that I »
