Captain America 3: Electric Boogaloo adds one RDJ

Word on the street is that Marvel has thrown enough bags of cash at Robert Downey Jr for him to co-star in Captain America 3. This has immediately sent nerds into a Civil War tizzy. For those unawares, Civil War was a big company wide cross over from 2006 where the drew lines for or against the Superhero Registration Act. Iron Man led the pro-registration side of things and Cap led the anti-registration movement. This of course led to a lot of the heroes fighting each other which is something nerds LOVE. The series wasn't exactly critically acclaimed but it sold very well and had a pretty significant impact on the Marvel Universe for a few years.

Random Thoughts:

I don't see how this makes any sense. In what world does RDJ's version of Iron Man decide the Government should be tracking and monitoring all super powered Americans? Has anyone at Marvel Studios watched the first 3 Iron Man movies? In the comics it made sense. For years Iron Man was trying to get the Avengers officially accepted by the feds. You see one of the major difference between the movies and the comic books is that in the comics the Avengers are funded by the Maria Stark foundation and have no official link to shield of the federal government. Are they going to flip the story and have Cap be on the pro-registration side? Considering the events of Captain America 2, that doesn't make any sense either.

As I mentioned part of the fun of Civil War was watching heroes face off against each other. Unless Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor and Hulk show up too what's the point? And if they do you just made Avengers 3. If it's just Cap and Iron Man you haven't really adapted Civil War you just made Captain America vs Iron Man, which I think is DC's plan with Batman and Superman.

Lastly, Civil War really paints Iron Man as a giant dick. And not the fun happy go lucky one that RDJ has been playing. He kind of betrays all his friends and plays a big part in getting Goliath (minor beloved hero) killed. I'm not sure the character in the Marvel Universe has really recovered yet. I can't imagine that they're going to really portray Iron Man as the bad guy here and with 2 hours of screen time will they have enough time to tell a balanced story? One where Cap and Iron Man look good in the end?

Second lastly where would this leave Falcon and the Winter Soldier? Correct me if I'm wrong but Captain America: The Winter Soldier was hella good. I'd like to see that storyline continue.
