First hints of Captain America 3 plotline

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?

Realistic, damn. I really wanted to see Cap go up against M.O.D.O.K, (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) Man-Fish and Flag-Smasher.

The potential for the 50s Cap could be great. He has links to white supremacists, teh Hate Monger and even the KKK. The idea of having a radical arian-esque american cap with very strong extremist views could be very interesting. You could also add other extremist characters like Nuke - the 80s super soldier who was pumped full of steroids for uppers and downers and has the american flag tattooed on his face.

I thought there was a 60's, 70's 'Nam Cap. US flag tattooed on face guy.

Thanks, I just asked about him in another comment

I didn't know there was a US remake of Den of Geek lol

Pffft! Bloody remakes! ;)

In the comics they had a failed Cap America experiment during Vietnam, where the new Cap went nuts and went 'Apocalypse now' on them.

Seriously, I'd love to see M.O.D.O.K. But as they now said the movies will be "grounded" I doubt we'll see that loveable flying washing machine.

I'm actually pretty big fan of M.O.D.O.K, he was was great in the Avengers cartoon series Earth's Mightiest Heroes. (Can't get my hand around why they cancelled that) But yeah, if they were going to introduce him they'd have to with a more realistic version of him.

I actually of hadn't heard of the Nam Cap but I might try and check it out.

Reminded me of Abraham from walking dead, except as a badguy. I only read one issue with him in it, the first of an arc, and it looked pretty good. Thing is it was online. I'll read the first one free but I never go beyond that lol

The Office wasn't bad, QaF was great, Being Human was utter rubbish.
