The Russo Brothers Discuss CAPTAIN AMERICA 3; Henry Jackman To Score The Threequel

After the overwhelming success of Captain America: The Winter soldier. it was no surprise that Marvel brought back the duo for the 3rd installment. With writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely already hard at work, the Russo brothers recently sat down with for an exclusive interview. They discussed all things Marvel Studios and what we should expect from Captain America 3. On whether everyone who worked on the film was returning or not:

From a crew standpoint, it's almost everybody. Henry Jackman's back, our whole technical crew for the most part is back. We're Italian; we love a big happy family. We love consistency and a lot of people did a great job on the last movie.From a character standpoint, it falls into the category of what you can and can't say working for Marvel. Certainly Captain America will be back. The expectation would be that Bucky will be back and there's certain characters in the Marvel Universe that Cap has a strong connection to but we've also got some tricks up our sleeve for this one and we're hard at work. That's a very crowded summer and there's high expectations so we're all hard at work trying to exceed those expectations and really carve out a big, splashy idea for Cap 3.

With Bucky obviously returning in the 3rd installment of the film, The Russo's were asked which villains might pop up in the next film:

It's hard to talk about that stuff because certainly our best answers to that question are stuff that are likely going to show up and we can't talk about.It's a hard question to answer because the answers are off the table right now unfortunately. But we do...Marvel has an incredible depth of characters and yeah, we think about a lot of them.

On their relationship with head honcho Kevin Feige and the Marvel 'formula':

I think it's proof that Marvel's formula works. I mean, everybody works a little differently here but Marvel, when they hire their filmmakers, you have a pretty wide berth. They're giving you a lot of creative freedom and it's no different from any other studio where of course when somebody writes a check for $200 million, they're going to expect to have a say at some point but it's been the most hands-off experience we've ever had, no question. And we were given the most creative freedom we've ever had, inclusive of our TV experience, where we've built ourselves up into a nice position of power in television. I think that's the Marvel way, and if you can communicate your vision to them very clearly and they trust your ability to execute that vision, you're in great shape over here. It's a very healthy process and we've told Kevin [Feige] that he's going to have to drag the two of us out of here kicking and screaming before we leave Marvel because we've had such a great experience here and we love everybody who works here.
Not only is Kevin a visionary in terms of understanding an arc for the universe and having an incredible Midas touch when it comes to understanding the commercial appeal of films but he's done an amazing job at hiring incredible people at this company. It is just filled top to bottom with the nicest, smartest, most talented people. Everybody's a value-add, everybody's there to help you. And it's made the process here incredibly unique and we feel ridiculously spoiled.
What do you guys think? Captain America 3 is scheduled to hit theatres May 6th, 2016. Captain America: The Winter soldier will be available on blu ray and DVD on on September 9th, 2014.
