Aheead of the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the film’s writers have hinted at their plans for the upcoming third film – namely from what comic storyline they plan to borrow. Scribe Christopher Markus tells Den of Geek:
“We’ve definitely set out on a more realistic road in the Cap movies, you know. Even more grounded than in the other MCU movies. And so it kind of rules out Cap fighting the Dinosaur Man or something like that.
There are some that aren’t gonna start and other ones that — I mean there’s a couple we’re playing with right now that we really want to take elements from. Which we’ll not reveal. All I’m saying is psychotic 1950s Cap.”
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.
McFeely added that they would like to some threads brought up in the first two movies:
“Oh yeah, you can probably predict some of the threads we would like to pick up again that we’ve laid out there. And we always go back to the comics and dive back in and look at anything we’ve missed in the last few years that might be relevant.”
Asked if there’s any intention to bring back the Red Skull from the first film, Christopher Markus says:
“We didn’t want to bring back the Skull so soon… Let alone have him inside the head of somebody else. There were just some things that would be much tougher to do on screen as they are in the comic… I only said that because I think it’s fairly clear he didn’t die in that first movie but [frick]ed off into Wonderland.”
Also today a new IMAX poster for the movie is out which you can see below:
