Joe and Anthony Russo are definitely directing Captain America 3 for Marvel...

The early buzz on Captain America: The Winter Soldier is impressive, and whilst there's a tight review embargo in place as to when everyone is allowed to put their thoughts live, the reaction that has seeped through so far has been strong.

It's already known that Marvel has another Captain America film planned once this one is finally released. And a week or two back, the story broke that Joe and Anthony Russo, the pair who have directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, would also be helming Captain America 3.

As it turns out, that story is correct. At a press junket for the film that's taken place in the US, Joe Russo confirmed that "we're just in the formative stages of it right now. We just started breaking story with [writers Christopher] Markus and [Stephen] McFeely, and we're just getting an idea of what we want to do with it".

He admitted that "it's crazy working on it before the movie even comes out because you want to see what people respond to in the film ... so we're just in that phase of breaking story but waiting to see how people respond to the movie".

Captain America 3 has no fixed date, but we'd imagine that Marvel would target a release in 2016 or 2017. Glad we could help.
