Captain America 3 might just be taking inspiration from another comic book arc...

Notwithstanding the fact that Marvel apparently wants the film in cinemas in two years' time, it's very early days still for Captain America 3. However, already rumours are springing up as to which direction the next film will be heading in.

Chatting to our colleagues at the spangly Den Of Geek US (who you can find in Twitterland at, screenwrtiers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely admitted that they were looking at adapting another story arc from the comics for the next film.

"We’ve definitely set out on a more realistic road in the Cap movies, you know", said Markus. "Even more grounded than in the other MCU movies. And so it kind of rules out Cap fighting the Dinosaur Man or something like that. There are some that aren’t going to start and other ones that -- I mean there’s a couple we’re playing with right now that we really want to take elements from. Which we'll not reveal".

Ah-ha! But do not underestimate our Den Of Geek US chums. They may not consume coffee in quite the same quantities as us over here, but they pushed for a bit more detail, and Markus thus added "all I’m saying is psychotic 1950s Cap".

That should be interesting. Whilst the first Captain America was set in the 1940, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a contemporary tale. Whether they take the elements of the story and shift it to the present day remains to be seen. However, the key element of that storyline is that someone else assumed the persona of Captain America in that run. Could Captain America 3 see a Captain America imposter?
