Speaking previously about the picture and the character arc of Captain America, director Anthony Russo said: “He’s coming from a place in time where things were very black and white, Nazis vs Allies.” His sibling and co-director Joe then added: “The conflict of the film is that some of the values he’s trying to bring forward from the greatest generation are in complete conflict with the Miley Cyrus generation.”

It was recently reported that the Russo brothers have already been asked by Marvel to return and oversee a third film in the Captain America franchise. The Winter Soldier, meanwhile, is set for release on April 4, 2014.
