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.
