Captain America: The Winter Soldier took everyone by surprise this year and has become one of Marvel's most popular movies, being labelled as "the best stand a lone Marvel movie since Iron Man in 2008" by Honest Trailers.
Captain America 3: The return of huge characters
Captain America has not only been been acclaimed as one of the best Marvel films, or one of the best superhero movies altogether, but it's made an impressive $714 million in the worldwide box office, and $260 million nationally.
With the confirmation of [Captain America 3](movie:994409) coming to theaters in May 2016 we have all been speculating on who will return, who will the villain be and what kind of story can we expect? Well our directors shared this this week with Movies.com:
"Thinking about where that relationship can go is a piece of the puzzle for us for sure. That character is a wonderfully, beautifully tragic figure in the sense of is he the world's most feared assassin or is he the world's longest serving POW. Is he innocent by reason of insanity or the equivalent of it because he's been mind controlled or is he irredeemable? Is he ever going to be acceptable to Cap again as the friend that he used to be before he was the Winter Soldier? These are very philosophical, emotional questions that pique our interest and definitely form one layer of the next movie." - Anthony Russo
This shouldn't be too much of a surprise to most fans. Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky, confirmed earlier this year that he was signed for not one...not three....not five...but NINE Marvel films. So we kind of expected him to return, not only because of his contract, but the way that CA: WS ends it really left us wanting more Cap and Bucky! It was a pretty obvious plot point, but still exciting!
What kind of character will Bucky be, how much does he remember, and what's he been doing all this time? Maybe most importantly: how is he getting around without money, credit cards or a valid ID? All these questions we can expect answers to on May 6, 2016!
