Captain America 3 directors Joe and Anthony Russo are planning on featuring some more Marvel heroes alongside Cap in the third film. The Winter Soldier had Black Widow and also introduced the Falcon to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When CinemaBlend asked them which Avenger they would want to have at their disposal for a Black Widow-sized role, they replied:
"That's such a hard question because we've kind of already done that," Joe Russo said, adding that they already built characters into their screenplay. "Do they have to be under contract with Marvel? Maybe they are at another studio."
Based on their response, the website speculated a super exciting theory:
"Oh. Intriguing. Wait one second. Could Marvel be pulling some strings behind the scenes to get THIS guy back under the Marvel umbrella?" stated the report adding the following image:
So could Spider-Man feature in Captain America 3? Unfortunately, that might not happen due to certain business reasons.
But Joe Russo's comments on the matter of a team up for Captain America 3 will get fans really excited about the possibilities. He said:
"Listen, when I started collecting, The Secret Wars was one of the first books I ever bought, so that's always been an obsession of mine to see something of that scale done – a crossover."
The epic Secret Wars storyline involved basically every major hero in the Marvel universe being transported to a distant planet to fight every villain in the Marvel universe.
"I don't know if that would ever be possible, with all the different situations at the studios. But I would love to see a lot of characters on screen together," he added.
Well, it remains to be seen what route Captain America 3 will take but judging by the directors' enthusiasm and inclination towards bringing more characters together, one can expect some cool superhero crossovers in the pipeline.
