‘Captain America 3′ Recruits Anthony & Joe Russo Back Into The Director's Chair

We bet even directors Anthony and Joe Russo, back in their "Welcome To Collinwood" days (see above), couldn't have imagined that a decade later, they'd be behind the camera of the one of the biggest franchises going. Yup, the pair are delivering "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" to cinemas this spring, and clearly, Marvel like what they've done with their first tentpole because they want more.

Anthony & Joe Russo, Captain America 3

We bet even directors Anthony and Joe Russo, back in their "Welcome To Collinwood" days, couldn't have imagined that a decade later, they'd be behind the camera of the one of the biggest franchises going. Yup, the pair are delivering "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" to cinemas this spring, and clearly, Marvel like what they've done with their first tentpole because they want more.

Variety reports that the Russos will be back for the inevitable "Captain America 3." Of course, there are no details beyond that, but the trade notes that test screenings on 'Winter Soldier' have gone so well, Marvel wants to get a third installment with these guys going as fast as possible. And while there is no screenwriter just yet, the Russos are apparently already putting together a story arc for the third movie. And although there's no official release date, Marvel is currently sitting on two dates in 2016, and one in 2017. Could they be hoping to get the next movie done in time to slot against "Batman Vs. Superman" on May 6, 2016? That would certainly be the kind of movie they need to go up against the DC powerhouse.

Anyway, stuff to consider, but until then here's a bonus VFX clip from "Thor: The Dark World," which features Tom Hiddleston wearing the Captain America uniform (the final scene in the movie features Chris Evans in a small cameo, but presumably this was done to help the effects team). Anyway, its geeky fun. Watch below.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" opens on April 4th.
