While Captain America: The Winter Soldier doesn’t bow until April 4th, Marvel is apparently bullish on directors Joe and Anthony Russo.  Although it’s not confirmed and the film is not officially greenlit, a new report has the Russo brothers coming back for a third installment of the Captain America franchise within a franchise.  Negotiations between the studio and the directors wouldn’t take place until the early box office numbers from Captain America: The Winter Soldier roll in, but the production and recent test screenings have been so impressive that the studio expedited their deal-making process.  Hit the jump for more.
