As well as the Captain America franchise, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also credited with the likes of Pain & Gain and Thor: The Dark World as well. They're an extremely talented pair of writers and have guided Steve Rogers through WWII and into one of the most received comic book movies of all-time. They're currently working on a third movie in the franchise (set for release on May 6th, 2016), but ahead of the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on DVD and Blu-ray next month, I managed to catch up with the duo to talk all things Cap! Which of the deleted scenes are you most excited for fans to see on the upcoming Blu-ray release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Christopher Markus: I don't know what's on the Blu-ray to tell you the truth! I'm trying to remember what we shot that didn't make it. »

Well, the geek mecca that is the San Diego Comic-Con International has drawn to a close for another year, and naturally we’ve been inundated with superhero news over the past few days. We’ve been covering Comic-Con in depth here at Flickering Myth [check out our archive here], and now here’s a run down of all the big talking points »

To say that Marvel’s Agent Carter, the next addition to the Marvel television universe on ABC, is highly anticipated is pretty much an understatement. With the popularity of Hayley Atwell’s character in both Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Solider, not to mention the awesome One Shot Marvel produced, it’s not hard to get excited at the aspect of a whole show centering around Peggy Carter. While at San Diego Comic Con promoting the new show, I was able to sit down to a round table interview with Hayley Atwell herself and also Executive Producers Louis D’Esposito, Stephen McFeely, Christopher Markus, Michele Fazekas, and Tara Butters to discuss what is in store for Agent Carter. During the conversation, they talked a lot of what the portrayal of Carter in her daily life, living a double life to her friends and family, »

Much to the chagrin of fans, the Marvel TV panel at San Diego Comic-Con didn’t include any information or announcements about the upcoming Daredevil series, but did provide some information about the new Agent Carter show. We originally assumed that it would be a spin-off of the Agent Carter One-Shot short film included on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray, but as it turns out the show will be a prequel, and will take shape under a few Captain America directors.
The series will take place in 1946, after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. Star Hayley Atwell is reprising her role as the titular British officer-turned S.H.I.E.L.D. founder, and introduced a short teaser that featured footage from The First Avenger and the Agent Carter short, as well as a voiceover that stated:
“The world is changing and if history has taught us anything, »

Collider managed to catch up with Agent Carter producers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con to quiz them about how much the series will tie into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. "What’s great is that we have the same bonus with Cap one, that we could do anything we want because we don’t have to tie into anything because we come before everything," McFeely revealed. "Then we forced them to tie into us." However, it was Markus would would reveal one very interesting detail; we're finally going to get to see Edwin Jarvis, the man who serves as The Avengers' faithful butler in the comic books but has been replaced by an A.I. (who is set to become The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "We’ll certainly have Easter eggs and even more than that. I think I can say, »
During a roundtable interview at Comic-Con with Agent Carter producers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, our reporter Rachel Howard learned that a very special character will be featured on the period television show. Since the screenwriters have had such a good time planting Easter eggs and messing with time-travel tropes in their Captain America features, they said that fans could expect more of the same in the show, which takes place in 1946 and finds Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter marginalized while working for the covert Ssr (Strategic Scientific Reserve) when the men return home from WWII. Joining Carter on screen will be none other than Edwin Jarvis, a name comic book fans should know quite well. Hit the jump for more. Here's a snippet of the Agent Carter interview that relates to Jarvis. The full interview with McFeely and Markus will be up shortly: Question: Given how successful Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. »

Marvel's “Agents of Shield” executive producer Jeph Loeb kicked off the show's Comic-Con panel with a promise that the audience will see things that no one else has ever seen. He teased this past season's big twist with Hydra, Shield's enemy that claimed Grant Ward as one of their own. Taking off his shirt, Loeb revealed he was wearing a Hydra shirt. He was then joined by the producers for upcoming series, “Agent Carter”: Tara Butters (“Resurrection”), Michele Fazekas (“Resurrection”), Christopher Markus (“Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), Stephen McFeely (“Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) and Louis D'Esposito (“Marvel's The. »

It's Marvel TV time at Comic-Con, with an hour-long panel that promises to feature Jeph Loeb plus still-unnamed castmembers from both "Marvel's Agents of Shield" and "Marvel's Agent Carter." The question is, will Marvel stop with just the two ABC dramas, or will they start trying to build excitement for the four upcoming Netflix series by, say, bringing in "Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox and Deborah Ann Woll for surprise appearances? (Woll has a long and impressive history of Comic-Con cosplay, including stints as Hit Girl and Axe Cop, so I wouldn't be shocked in the least if she came dressed as Elektra — or Daredevil, for that matter.) And will Loeb be as bombastic as in his usual interviews, or will he acknowledge how rough so much of "Agents of Shield" season 1 was before "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finally gave the show direction? I'll be live-blogging all the action, updating »

It's been another busy day at Comic-Con, but one of the panels we're really excited about is almost ready to begin! The Marvel TV panel is expected to bring us plenty of gossip about not just Agents of Shield, but also Agent Carter (could we be getting some casting for that one?) We're really looking forward to us, so join us as the panel begins at 3pm Pt / 6pm Et / 11pm UK...
16:05What a way to end the panel, eh? Thanks for joining us and stick around on DS for more Comic-Con action!
16:04That was a really fun skit with the Koenig brothers but big, Big news - the teaser said that Bobbi Morse had called to tell Director Coulson she's in. What. Argh.
15:59The next fan asks if we could see something for season two. "The problem with that is that we literally started shooting yesterday, »
Captain America: The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are currently hard at work on penning the screenplay for Cap’s third solo outing, which is slated to hit theaters on May 6, 2016. They were recently interviewed by ComicBookMovie, and were asked about what villains they would like to introduce next.
They obviously couldn’t say much, but did give a bit of insight into two villains in particular: Flag Smasher and Modok. One of them they would love to see brought into the fold (if they could make him grounded enough), while the other they feel they could never do justice. And you’ll never believe which one is which:
Markus: “That’s a little tricky because some of them are theoretically very good. Some of them have great concepts but are really tough to pull off visually. Like Flag-Smasher who wants to destroy nations, »
- James Garcia
The Marvel Cinematic Universe may be regarded as the more “fun” approach to superhero filmmaking, but that doesn’t mean we’ll ever see the super-villain Modok on the big screen. Sure, we’ve seen some pretty crazy things in the McU, like Red Skull, Thanos, a talking raccoon, Groot, and huge Chitauri space whale things, but something about a giant head floating around on a mechanical chair just doesn’t seem like it would translate well to live action.
That’s a problem that Captain America 3 writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are dealing with now, as they look into Marvel’s vast catalog of bad guys to pit against the Star-Spangled Avenger. Modok was never confirmed to appear, but he’s someone fans have been speculating about for a while. He’s even someone that Markus would love to see someday, but he’s worried about fitting »

Writer Stephen McFeely ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), has commented on the idea of using psychotic 'Commie Smasher' 'Captain America' from the Atlas series of 1950's comic books, for his "Captain America 3" screenplay, currently being drafted with co-writer Christopher Markus:
Aside from the fact that Marvel Studios have partnered with the Chinese government on co-productions ("Iron Man 3"), McFeely also doesn't think there is enough original material from the 'Commie Smasher' era to justify an entire film.
"You know, there's probably 20 minutes of movie there," said McFeely. "But there's something interesting about a guy who so desperately wanted to be ('Captain America') and be a tribute.."
"...in 1953, 'William Burnside' discovers the lost formula for the 'Super-Soldier Serum' in Third Reich files stashed in a German warehouse.
"He immediately tells the government about the formula in exchange of becoming the next 'Captain America', even undergoing »

So, as so often happens here on these interwebs, some folks heard a tongue-in-cheek comment and ran with it as gospel. A few months ago, the writers behind the critically-acclaimed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, made a remark about something that could appear in the next Cap film. Screenwriter Christopher Markus mentioned the storyline from the 1950s where there was a psychotic Captain America- a guy that turned out to be so obsessed with Cap that he actually had plastic surgery to look just like him- in an interview. Some places ran with this as a possible storyline for the third film.
Comic Book Movie had the chance to ask the writer, and his partner Stephen McFeely, about this recently, and they were all too happy to squash that rumor:
"McFeely: [Laughs] Chris, would you like to put that to bed?
Markus: Yes! That was a smart remark, »

One of the more bizarre rumors earlier this year came during the press rounds for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". A throwaway comment from screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely led to stories being published assuming that the villain for the third film will be an evil version of Captain America.
In the comics, there was a story arc in which a different man is injected with the super serum to take over the Captain's responsibilities after he's lost in the Arctic. The treatment has psychotic side effects, so he's eventually placed in suspended animation and later revived in an attempt to kill The Falcon.
Markus: That was a smart remark, off the cuff. What I love about that whole run, »

Earlier this year, Captain America: The Winter Soldier screenwriter Christopher Markus briefly mentioned the possibility of using the psychotic 1950s Cap as a villain in Captain America 3. Despite never directly stating that, it didn't stop a lot of people jumping to the conclusion that that was the villain that the next movie (currently set for a May 6th, 2016 release) would focus on. When I got the chance to talk to both Markus and writing partner Stephen McFeely earlier today, I asked about those reports, and they set the record straight on the matter once and for all, making it clear that the off the cuff remark doesn't mean we should expect to see this particular bad guy. Stephen McFeely: [Laughs] Chris, would you like to put that to bed? Christopher Markus: Yes! That was a smart remark, off the cuff. What I love about that whole run, the »

Ahead of the Marvel Television Presents panel at the San Diego Comic-Con next weekend, SuperHeroHype caught up with Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, showrunners of the upcoming Agent Carter TV show, and managed to get a few words about ABC’s latest venture into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“The nice thing about Agent Carter being set in the ‘40s is it predates a lot of the Marvel universe. As you know, the guys who wrote Captain America 1, 2 and are now writing 3, wrote the pilot. So they know that universe very well. So I don’t feel like we’re hamstrung by anything. I think there’s a lot of room to play and a lot of room to be creative with the story,” said Fazekas, with Butters adding that: “It allows us, the movies were such a wonderful set up for the series. There is definitely something to draw on »

While Marvel has yet to announce their official movie plans for Comic-Con 2014, which might see the studio revealing the actor behind Doctor Strange, they have dropped their TV plans, which include panels for both Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel's Agent Carter. Don't be too upset just yet that there isn't any mention of Marvel's Daredevil or the The Defenders miniseries. Netflix has yet to unveil their Sdcc plans, and could still be bringing these other Marvel properties to the convention center.
Here is the official press release from Marvel:

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 we want you guys to tell us what else you'd like to see: Which new heroes and villains (if any), who you'd like to play them, what should the subtitle be, what comic arcs you'd like to see the writers draw from, how it should tie into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe etc -- basically »
