Rumor: \’Winter Soldier\’ Directors May do Avengers 3 and 4


Cap Winter Soldier

With the awesome tsunami that was Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Cap fans were wondering how Marvel could ever top that adventure. Last night’s announcement that the third movie will begin Marvel’s Civil War is a pretty good way to do that.

Part of the reasons Winter Soldier worked so well was due to the Russo brothers who directed it, which is why Marvel has them back for the third movie. Now Badass Digest has a rumor that the duo is so well-liked within Marvel they may do the third and fourth Avengers movies as well:

How closely will Captain America 3 tie in with Avengers 3? I’ve been told that the Russo Brothers are in talks to direct Avengers 3 and possibly 4. Sources tell me that they’re the favorites of Marvel right now and that they are the guys Kevin Feige want to pick up the mantle from Joss Whedon.

The third Avengers isn’t expect until 2018, and a fourth wouldn’t be until 2021 or even later, so a lot of things can change between now and then but these seem like choices fans can get behind.
