 This isn't suprising since Marvel gave Thor 2 the Odin cliffhanger, obviously to set up for the next film.  That is a smart strategy for Marvel, do two-or-three-movie story arcs for characters in their own titles and have occasional crossover mega movies like Avengers 2 and the eventual Infinity War they are flirting with, but keep the effect those crossover movies have on the single character franchises limited.  Seems like a successful formula I've seen somewhere before...oh yeah, in the Comic Book industry.

It isn't the sequel that it's meant to be the news or surprise but rather how impressed Marvel's heads appear to be with the Russo Brothers that they're ready to commit to them for another sequel. Something they have never seemed to keen on outside of Whedon for obvious reasons

I remember more than a few laughing and criticizing Marvel for this particular hire at the time. I trusted Feige was making a good decision and hopefully it pays off

 @Wise, it's not like there was anything that impressive in the Russo's resume before.  I would have called it a risky choice too, much more so than Johnston for the 1st Cap movie.  Of course I called Joss Whedon a risky choice, and he was, but it was a risk that paid off in spades.  I would also like to believe Winter Soldier was able to attract Rober Redford by showing him an impressive script instead of a dump truck full of money, so here's to hoping.

So who would be the villian?  Nuke would be a good choice, maybe Helmut Zemo

 @FerretJohn, I myself would like to see something other than Hydra, but since they are introducing Strucker in Winter Soldier, they are probably going to stick with the Nazis.  Interestingly, I read a blurb from one of the people working on Cap 2 that offhandedly refers to the Red Skull as "no longer on this plane" instead of dead.  He may crawl out of the cube or whatever plot device to be the Big Bad reveal behind HYDRA in Cap 3.

That's cool. I guess the Russo brothers would need to look at the overall cinematic story: what happens in Avengers 2 and after, to make an informed decision.

I think it's time for Red Skull to return. I only hope that Hugo Weaving can be pursuaded.

The buzz is very positive so far and test screenings have been quite successful according to a few insiders regarding Cap2.  This is a smart move to secure the same people who may deliver one of the best overall comic movies yet.  Marvel is obviously banking on consistency and continuity so keeping the crew together is as important as the cast.  I'm pretty excited for Winter Soldier, if it's as good as I want it to be then I'll be very happy to know the same team is behind the camera.

@Wiseguy

I was one of them questioning this decision. It had to do with their resume. Mostly TV sitcoms. That's why I found it odd they were being hired for a big budget super hero movie.

At the end of the day, it's Marvel Studios that know where talent is. They saw something special in these guys or they maybe they just love the line "there's always money in the banana stand"

You also have to keep in mind that the Marvel Studios team works kike a team. They have a group of writers and Marvel Comics consultants. They work with other directors (didn't Whedon help Alan Taylor with Thor?)

But you are right. This is the first time Marvel locks in a director for the sequel. Favreau was not an immediate decision for Iron Man 2. Branagh, Johnson, Taylor. None were locked in for the next movies.

 I think i still need to see some mind blowing footage of this movie before getting super excited as I want to be.

I just got though watching the CA2 trailer an looks good , seeing Bucky on the table looked close to the comicbook . I never heard nor seen a movie by Them . Its quite easy to figure out the plot , but  they havent shown us more of the bad Guys . So , yeah I hope they do a good job with this film. Plus Cap wears 2 suits i this film . Love to see a spin-off with Winter Soldier or a TV show.
