'Captain America 3' to Open Against 'Man of Steel 2' in 2016
There will be a big showdown between Marvel and DC in 2016. THR unveils that the untitled Marvel project I which is listed for May 6, 2016 is actually "Captain America 3", meaning the Cap will face off "Man of Steel 2" which brings together Superman and Batman. Marvel also has an untitled Marvel project II due July 8 that year, which is yet to be revealed.
In a press junket for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", producer Kevin Feige previously said they had no plan to shift the date. "We're certainly keeping the date there," he said, "and we'll announce what that movie is, I assume, in the next few months."
While Marvel's flick will be led by Chris Evans, the DC movie is boosted by Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. The director of the first film, Zack Snider, reprises his role in this sequel which was originally due July 17, 2015 but delayed due to script rewrite by Chris Terrio ("Argo").
Meanwhile, Anthony and Joe Russo who directed the second "Captain America" film confirmed they would return for the third installment of the series. "We're just in the formative stages of it right now. We just started breaking story with Markus and McFeely and we're just getting an idea of what we wanna do with it," they spilled the beans.
Between the second which is due April 4 this year and the third one, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is set to fill the gap in 2015. It is slated for May 1, 2015. Evans will reprise his role as the heroic superhero in this one. Due to Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy, Marvel "fast-tracked" the filming with the Black Widow scheduled to begin filming her scenes next month.
She told Huffington Post, "Everything for Avengers 2 -- we're full steam ahead." "We start shooting in three weeks and I'm stunt training and we're good to go," she added. "Everything is going just fine. The Black Widow always wins and will continue to."
