Here’s the deal, Internet: I’ll provide you with interview footage of Jeremy Renner basically confirming Hawkeye’s appearance in Captain America 3 if you make me a GIF of Renner’s dramatic winks.  Sound good?

There have been a few similar unofficial confirmations of just such an occurrence in recent weeks.  Captain America 3 directors Joe and Anthony Russo themselves mentioned Hawkeye’s involvement in the film during Steve’s interview with them for Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray release, and around the same time, Renner mentioned the possibility of joining the film as long as his schedule allowed it.  This one sounds like a safe bet.  Hit the jump to hear it (and see it) from Renner himself.

Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier was—and is—one of the biggest films of the year.  Though its status as the domestic box office champion of 2014 will be usurped, fittingly, by Guardians of the Galaxy, the Cap follow-up garnered positive reviews and an overall stellar reaction from fans in general.  As such, many were pleased to hear that The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo would be returning to helm the next sequel, Captain America 3.  Though the pic’s May 6, 2016 release date may feel far off, it’s actually on deck as the next Marvel Studios film to start production after Ant-Man.

Steve recently sat down with the Russo brothers in anticipation of the release of The Winter Soldier on Blu-ray, and during the course of their conversation the duo also talked fairly extensively about Captain America 3.  In addition to revealing that filming on Cap 3 begins in April in Atlanta, the Russo brothers also discussed how much of sequel’s story was dictated by Marvel beforehand, revealing that Kevin Feige offered up a concept that’s been in his head for a long time.  They also talked about the script’s evolution since February, Hawkeye’s involvement, when they’ll announce the title, delving further into the Winter Soldier character, envisioning the sequels as a two-part story, the return of Frank Grillo‘s Crossbones, and more.  Watch and read the interview after the jump.

Jeremy Renner Says “There Are Rumblings” of Hawkeye Joining CAPTAIN AMERICA 3; Talks Upcoming Schedule

It’s no secret that when an actor signs on to star in a Marvel Studios film, his or her contract also contains options to appear in X number of films for the studio.  The number varies from actor to actor (Samuel L. Jackson signed for nine movies, Chris Evans signed for six), but it helps ensure that the folks at Marvel can call on one of their many comic book characters to appear in any combination of films.  Since The Avengers, the team of superheroes has become more close knit, and so it makes sense that they would begin to populate each other’s movies going forward.  In the case of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel opted to have a S.H.I.E.L.D.-heavy sequel with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Jackson’s Nick Fury playing major roles in the second Cap film.

Production just began on Marvel’s Ant-Man, but the next Marvel film set for release after the Paul Rudd-fronted feature is Captain America 3.  Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo are likely fine-tuning the script for the third Cap film as we speak, and when we recently spoke with Jeremy Renner in anticipation of his upcoming film Kill the Messenger, he revealed that there are “rumblings” that Renner’s Hawkeye might have a supporting role in Cap 3.  More after the jump.

It’s an impressive feat for any film to crack a $90 million opening weekend at the box office, but Marvel Studios is 2 for 2 this year in that regard.  Guardians of the Galaxy just opened to a stellar $94.3 million this past weekend, and earlier this year Captain America: The Winter Soldier launched to $95 million, which currently stands as the second highest opening of the year.  Marvel has already confirmed sequels for both films, and the first out of the gate will be Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016.  The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are returning to helm the third standalone Cap film, and they’re currently hard at work developing the pic.

With The Winter Soldier hitting Blu-ray next month, the Russo brothers recently spoke a bit about Captain America 3, revealing that it picks up “a couple years” after the events of the second film and will continue exploring Steve’s relationship with his resurrected pal Bucky.  Additionally, the Russo brothers reiterated that they will be returning to television to direct a few episodes of Marvel’s upcoming new series Marvel’s Agent Carter.  More after the jump.

In addition, we also talked about casting Josh Brolin as Thanos and if he signed a multi-picture deal, why they didn’t show the post-credits scene at the press screenings, the untitled Marvel movies being released through 2019, the studio’s Comic-Con plans, the fact that Marvel knows who will be playing Doctor Strange but the contract isn’t signed yet (if the person does sign by Comic-Con he’ll be announced on Saturday), the status of Thor 3 and Captain America 3, the chances Robert Downey Jr. returning for Iron Man 4, and more.  Hit the jump for the interview and click here to read some going tweets about Guardians of the Galaxy.

Though with this glut of costumed heroes hitting the silver screen, it’s sometimes hard to keep straight what is rumor and what is fact.  Seems like the perfect time to walk through what has been confirmed and what is still rumor in the world of Marvel’s mutants, gods, and charismatic billionaires in iron suits.

With Captain America: The Winter Solider the number one movie around the world, it’s finally time to share some of the filmmaker interviews that get into the spoilers of the film.  However, before jumping into what screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely said about the making of  Winter Soldier, I wanted to post what they had to say about Captain America 3.

As we reported a few weeks ago, Winter Solider directors Joe and Anthony Russo are returning to helm Captain America 3 and they’ve already got a release date: May 6, 2016.  At the recent junket they told me, “We’re just in the formative stages of it right now.  We just started breaking story with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and we’re just getting an idea of what we wanna do with it.”  They added it’s hard to work on the story “before the movie even comes out because you want to see what people respond to.”  Hit the jump for more.

CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Revealed to Be Marvel’s May 6, 2016 Release; Slated Opposite BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

captain-america-3-sequel-chris-evans

Last year, Marvel staked out a number of future release dates for films that they declined to reveal.  There are currently two “Marvel Untitled” films set for release in 2016 and one for May 2017.  The mystery grew deeper when Warner Bros. threw the hammer down and shifted the release of its own highly anticipated superhero team-up Batman vs. Superman to May 6, 2016, the same date as Marvel’s first untitled 2016 release.  There’s no way two major superhero tentpoles will be opening on the same weekend, so the question then became which film would blink first.

Just yesterday, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said Marvel has no plans to budge, and now we have a clearer picture of the Marvel vs. DC battle as the nature of the untitled May 2016 picture has been revealed: Captain America 3.  Hit the jump for more.

Directors Joe & Anthony Russo Confirm They’ll Direct CAPTAIN AMERICA 3; Say They’re Breaking the Story Now with Screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely

I don’t know much, but I am sure of one thing: after moviegoers watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4th, everyone is going to want another Captain America sequel with the same creative team behind the wheel.  Thankfully, it seems like that is going to happen.  About a month ago, we reported Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo were in early talks to return for Captain America 3.  However, since that story broke, we’ve received no word on whether or not contracts had been signed.  When I sat down earlier today with Marvel’s President of Production, Kevin Feige, to discuss The Winter Soldier, I asked him if the Russo brothers were definitely coming back to direct the third Captain America film, and he said they were.

With that confirmation, I then went to my interview with directors Joe and Anthony Russo and they also confirmed the news, adding,”We’re just in the formative stages of it right now.  We just started breaking story with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and we’re just getting an idea of what we wanna do with it.”  They added it’s hard to work on the story “before the movie even comes out because you want to see what people respond to.”  Hit the jump for the full quote and video.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Directors Joe and Anthony Russo in Early Talks to Return for CAPTAIN AMERICA 3

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.
