Marvel’s collaborative screenwriters, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely started off with Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), and then penned Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and pilot for the upcoming American television series “Agent Carter” TV series.
The duo is in process of writing Captain America 3, SFX caught up with them to talk about their upcoming film.
When quizzed if the political tone will continue into the third film or if they will you create something as different as The Winter Soldier was from The First Avenger, Christopher Markus said: “Well, that’s the challenge! But we are working on something that I think is an amalgalm.”
Stephen McFeely adds, “When we hit upon the Brubaker run of the comic book, we all said that, with certain exceptions, that’s the tone of Cap’s modern franchise.
And you can imagine that with us back, with the Russos back, then if you like Winter Soldier you’ll hopefully like the third one, if we do it right!”
The duo was asked if Sam Wilson (AKA The Falcon) will take over Captain America‘s role in the movies, since Marvel announced that Falcon is taking over cap’s role in comic books.
McFeely replied: “We tend to stay on the sidelines when it comes to the comics. We wait and see what we’ll steal from in three or four years from now!”
Markus adds, “I think the movies can accommodate almost anything, if there’s a need.
I think there is a much greater need to shake things up in the comics because that’s a narrative that’s been going on for 60 or 70 years, so you’re going to wind up having to do things to it.
Ours has only been off the ground for five or so. So it’s not quite time to start changing things up yet. Plus I can’t figure out how he’s going to have the wings and the shield at the same time.
Isn’t it going to get all crammed up on the wing? I don’t know… When those things happen in the comics you also have a tendency, perhaps cynically, to go ‘Yeah, but he’s going to be Steve Rogers in two months…’
He’s going to wake up out of cryo-stasis or whatever it is and it’s going to be like ‘Oh, I need the shield back.'”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will make its debut on Digital HD in August 19 and on DVD/Blu-Ray on September 9, 2014. Captain America 3 is scheduled to be released on May 6, 2016.
