In a shocking turn of events, Robert Downey Jr. tells Yahoo that he thinks Captain America 3 is going to be kind of a big deal.
“It’s going to be huge,” Downey says, without commenting or revealing any further details.
Captain America 3 will be the next film, following Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which Downey suits up as Iron Man. The film will begin Marvel’s attempt to adapt the Civil War storyline that ran in Marvel Comics in 2006-07 to the Marvel Studios line of films. The storyline splits the superhero community in two over the Superhero Registration Act, an act that forces superheroes to reveal their secret identities and register with the government as employees. Iron Man staunchly supports the Act, while Captain America sees it as a breach of heroes’ civil liberties.
