The Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony (the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier) recently talked Movies.com about Captain America 3. They really did not have to much to tell us about the movie except:
“We just got another incredible draft from the writers and are very excited about the film……..I can’t divulge who is going to be in the film, but I think the fans are going to freak out when they hear about it.”
“Thinking about where that relationship can go is a piece of the puzzle for us for sure. That character is a wonderfully, beautifully tragic figure in the sense of is he the world’s most feared assassin or is he the world’s longest serving POW. Is he innocent by reason of insanity or the equivalent of it because he’s been mind controlled or is he irredeemable? Is he ever going to be acceptable to Cap again as the friend that he used to be before he was the Winter Soldier? These are very philosophical, emotional questions that pique our interest and definitely form one layer of the next movie.”
So there you have in a round about way they let us know to expect the return of Bucky!
