“Captain America 3” co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo continue teasing the upcoming sequel during promotional rounds for the home video release of ‘The Winter Soldier’.
This time, whilst speaking with Collider, they reveal that the threequel’s subtitle is set to be revealed shortly:
“It will be soon. Look, sometimes the announcement waits on certain business deals to be completed so we’re just kind of waiting on the business end of the issue to sort of settle itself and we’ll be ready to announce it. But we’re hoping in a month or so at the most.”
Joe Russo adds to Cinema Blend that: “I think when people learn the title of Cap 3, they’ll understand that Marvel is continuing to take really big swings” indicating it could well take its name from a famed Captain America comic book arc. The success of “Guardians of the Galaxy” is also allowing them as writers to “take more chances, we can be riskier.”
Asked if Frank Grillo’s Crossbones will return, Joe says: “I mean, listen, we didn’t – he’s not alive at the end of Winter Solider for no reason, so let’s just say that. But, you know, strict Marvel policy of nondisclosure.”
Production on the next film is slated to begin in April in Atlanta, Georgia.
