Captain America 3 Confirmed for May 2016
The box office success of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier pulling in $300 million global gross over this past weekend has locked in a date for the third film.
CelebNMusic247.com will be the first to say that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of the best Marvel films ever. Chris Evans was superb as the muscle all American hero and the critics are loving it along with us.
The studio is not wasting anytime so the studio has officially locked down a date for the upcoming third installment. Looking past next years upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s May 1, 2015 release, Marvel is making plans for 2016 with Captain America 3 which is set to be one of the closing chapters of the solo hero films.
As Captain America will be coming to a close of it’s trilogy, Ant Man will be taking off as a replacement. .
Marvel teased the idea of a May 6, 2016 release, and initially scheduled Captain America 3 to open the 2016 summer blockbuster season. Now they confirm that the sequel will indeed debut on that date. Marvel seems to be confident enough that it can beat the tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman at the box office in 2016.
It would be one of the first times that the two competing comic book companies actually went head-to-head on the same release date. Some actually predict that Warner Bros. may be the first to flinch given that their comic book universe is not as well-established as the MCU.
As for a glimpse of what is to come with Captain America 3, Winter Soldier screenwriters Christopher Markcus and Stephen McFreely described the Captain America 3 storyline in only a few words: “psychotic 1950s Cap.”
If you aren’t familiar with the storyline, then here is a short description courtesy of GeeksofDoom:
“While Cap was on ice in the 1950s, a soldier named William Burnside, who had worshiped the original Cap, had blackmailed the U.S. Government into becoming the new Captain America. There is a complicated history to this, one that involves going into spoiler territory. But he encounters Jack Monroe, who shares his fascination. Together they uncover the files for the Super Soldier serum, and inject the unstable formula into themselves to become the new Captain America and Bucky Barnes.”
Does this mean that Captain America will be tying in the Agents of SHIELD TV drama with the introduction of the Clairvoyant?
If saw Captain America, then you saw the next level of villain set for Cap 3. In a very nice nod to the comics Zola’s face appears to Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanov on a computer monitor, and we learn that he’s been behind the scenes of SHIELD from the start, gathering and analyzing information. Then a rocket blows the whole place up and Zola is, seemingly, killed.
In SHIELD, the quesiton was raised, who is the mysterious villain behind the scenes who has been pulling strings all season long. The Clairvoyant, as his/her name indicates, is supposedly psychic and can see into the minds of humans. Coulson didn’t believe in psychics when the season began, but now he’s come around to believing.
But here is another thought -what if the Clairvoyant isn’t reading minds but is reading everybody’s SHIELD files? What if the Clairvoyant is actually a SHIELD agent?
And if you have seen the film, then you saw the scene after the credits with The Twins, who are being trained by HYDRA and set help dominate the world and to kill Captain America. All the Twists get revealed for that ties SHIELD into Cap 2 and 3, plus the many twists.
Don’t forget Marvel has officially announced that the First Avenger will jump into his next big screen solo adventure in just a little more than two years on May 6, 2016!
