Captain America 3 Release Date, Plot Update: Chris Evans, who stars as Captain America in the superhero franchise, says the next installment will set up “Avengers: Infinity War.” Evans will be throwing down his shield to pursue directing.
Captain America 3 “is going to be the setup for the real battle,” Evans promised.
Marvel’s Cinematic Universe set up the core team of the Avengers: Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor, in 2012.
They won’t officially unite again until the two-part “Avengers: Infinity War” in 2018 and 2019.
They are set to take on Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) and the Infinity Stones, in the build up to “The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2” but first they have to take on each other in next year’s “Captain America: Civil War.” “Captain America: Civil War is the jumpoff into Avengers: The Infinity War” he confirmed to MTV.
“Civil War is going to be the setup for the real battle.
So yeah, there are a lot of people – a lot of people – in Cap 3,” according to Chris Evans.
The official plot synopsis for Civil War promises an epic fight between Captain and Iron Man: “The events of the Age of Ultron left an imprint on the world, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity.
This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.” Evans will be stepping down from the Captain America movies and The Avengers franchises.
“Initially, it was a nine-movie contract,” he told Variety.
“And they said, if these movies take off and do very well, and my life changes and I don’t respond well, I don’t have the opportunity to say, listen, I need a f-king break.
That just scared me.” “They called back and they tweaked the deal.
It went from nine [films] to six.
I said no again.
My family was even going, ‘Are you sure you’re making the right decisions?’ It started to feel like maybe this is what I’m supposed to do.” Evan will be stepping behind the camera.
“I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct,” he told Variety.
“But (time) never really opens up.
There’s another movie to do, there’s another acting job.
It just got to a point where I was like, you know what – I have to do this…
If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing.
I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.” Captain America: Civil War arrives in May 2016.
