Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo confirmed a report from January that they are coming back to direct the follow-up Captain America 3, which will likely be a part of Marvel's Phase Three, although that is not set in stone yet.
While making the press rounds for their Phase Two sequel, arriving in theaters April 4, the directors revealed that they have already started breaking the story with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who wrote both Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
"Well now that Kevin (Feige) said it that means we can talk about it, I guess. That's great. 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. It's crazy working on it before the movie even comes out because you want to see what people respond to in the movie. You want to get some inspiration from what people like about the film so you go, 'Okay, this is what we gotta lean into in the next movie' or 'this is what we should move away from, this didn't work so well.' So we're just in that phase of breaking story but waiting to see how people respond to the movie."
