With Captain America: The Winter Soldier nearly done, Marvel doesn't seem to be wasting time with Captain America 3...

We're still over two months away from the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in cinemas, but Marvel is already planning ahead, and working on the next installment.

Variety has revealed that an outline is already being put together for Captain America 3, which was always pretty much all but certain to form part of Marvel Studios' phase three of movies. However, and this isn't the norm where Marvel is concerned, it's re-recruiting directors Anthony and Joe Russo to make the next film.

The Russo brothers are putting the finishing touches to Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the moment, and for the first time since Jon Favreau was hired for Iron Man 2, they'll be back for the follow-up. That's some vote of confidence.

Chris Evans will, of course, be back in the title role as well.

There's no release date as of yet, but we'd suspect that 2016 or 2017 is likely.
