I WAS RIGHT!!
On July 14th, I proposed that CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 might well be based on Marvel's crossover saga:
The government demands each metahuman to register, revealing his name and agreeing to become part of a government militia if drafted.
Steve Rogers saw what Germany demanding Jews to register devolved into and disagrees.
Tony Stark is on the government's side.
According to VARIETY, Robert Downey Jr. is on the verge of signing on to CAPTAIN AMERICA 3,
a move that would bring the CIVIL WAR storyline from Marvel’s comic books to the big screen and trigger the start of a new phase of movies from Marvel Studios.
The actor is in final negotiations to play billionaire Tony Stark in the third installment,
which is slated to begin production in the Spring for a May 6, 2016 release.
Steve Rogers once more is on the run to avoid arrest.
The moral question and battle with his Avengers teammate essentially makes Stark a villain of sorts in CAPTAIN AMERICA 3,
providing Downey with a meaty role he could play out into future Marvel films, including a fourth AVENGERS.
The CIVIL WAR storyline did not end well for Captain America:
But as with the Battle of the Alamo, Steve Rogers dying won the war for human rights.
Downey, who earned $50 million for THE AVENGERS alone, will collect around $40 million plus back-end participation for CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 said sources,
and will get an additional payout if CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 outperforms “Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s” $714 million worldwide haul.
Since the actor did not appear in the first two “Captain America” films,
the thinking is that if the third installment surpasses the last movie, its success could be attributed to Downey.
Downey also has been wanting to play a larger role in future films
as a way to remain creatively involved and close to his fan base that would undoubtedly come out to see his non-Marvel movies.
