Because the Marvel machine can't be stopped and has achieved sentience, it should come as no surprise that Captain America 3 is being kicked around by directors Anthony and Joe Russo, even though the second installment doesn't hit theaters until this April.

Marvel is supposedly very happy with how the second installment is stacking up, and expects to move on to number 3, with a release date in 2016 or 2017, after the next Avengers film. And probably after another Thor, maybe another Iron Man, and about 47 X-Men sequels and prequels.

And Chris Evans will return, per his contract. In case you thought they were looking to shake things up with Phillip Seymour Hoffman or Hal Holbrook.
