Director Joe Russo, who is currently shooting Captain America: The Winter Soldier with his brother Anthony Russo, made a bold statement at the CineEurope conference today, via a videotaped interview.

"It's going to be much greater than any Marvel movie to date."

After the massive critical and commercial success of Marvel's The Avengers, it remains to be seen if this sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger will be just as successful or "great."

Production is currently under way on the Marvel Phase Two sequel, which stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as The Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, and Anthony Mackie as The Falcon.
