Steve Rogers’ story will end in Captain America 3?


Fans have been speculating whether Steve Rogers’ story would end in the third Captain America movie. A big hint was that Chris Evans only signed up for 6 Marvel films. 3 films are already out of the way with Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The next three would be Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3 and the third Avengers film.

Joe and Anthony Russo have been doing interviews to promote the Blu-ray release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and they gave hints on Steve Roger’s end to MTV.

Anthony Russo said, “[Whether this is the end] is a hard question to answer because it gets to the specific of where the narratives are going. I will say this: yes, for satisfying storytelling, you want a beginning, middle and end. That’s the natural arc that we all thrive off of in narrative.”

It was somewhat cryptic, but we can guess that it would be the final story for Steve Rogers. However, since Sebastian Stan signed up for many more Marvel films, he could be filling in the role as Captain America in future films.

“The great thing about the Marvel universe, just like the publishing, it’s a very vast, inter-connected universe, where characters will have their rise and fall, so to speak, and hand off to other characters. As the cinematic universe moves forward, you may start to see the cinematic universe adopt that same pattern, as the publishing has, where there’s closure with some characters and new beginnings with other characters. How those hand-offs are made is always part of the fun.”

Yep, they’re definitely talking about characters passing the torch. The Russo Brothers told Collider about Bucky’s situation in the third film.

“Philosophical questions that we would want to deal with in Cap 3 would be, you know, is he redeemable? Is he the worst assassin we’ve ever seen or is he the longest suffering POW? Where does he live now? Does he ever regain his memories?… If he doesn’t regain his memories, can you call him Bucky Barnes or is he somebody new? So it’s a really fascinating character to play with.”

They then talked about how producer Kevin Feige is able to turn things around in a big way in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Joe said, “Usually when Kevin has an idea in his head, it’s a big idea that affects the whole universe.” Then Anthony chimed in, “For instance the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. That would be an example of a big idea coming from Kevin that a movie then has to wrap itself around.”

That’s not to say they are going to get carried away with all these big ideas, since they will still focus on the now.

Anthony said, “even though there’s sort of a grand plan of things, Kevin Feige also has this awesome attitude of one movie at a time, which I think is very healthy, not to get too far ahead of yourself.”
