‘Falcon & The Winter Soldier’ Director Hasn’t Heard About ‘Captain America 4’, But Is Open To Helming It

The news that a Captain America 4 is next following the finale of Falcon and the Winter Soldier has excited fans…and led to denials by Anthony Mackie and showrunner Malcolm Spellman, the latter reportedly in line to write the screenplay. So it looks like if this thing is really happening, Marvel is doing it by putting the band back together. So what about director Kari Skogland? Has she heard anything about it?

Speaking with Collider, Skogland followed the same line as Mackie and Spellman which is that she doesn’t know anything about Captain America 4

“I still don’t know anything about it. I don’t even know that the headline’s true. So I have no idea about any of that.”

However, if the film were to happen, Skogland told Cinema Blend that she’d definitely answer the call from Kevin Feige if asked…

“I think if Marvel called me to do anything, if they called me to film the phone book, I would do it,” Skogland said. “The Marvel characters are all very, very rich. I’ve become friends with Anthony and Sebastian, and I really enjoyed working with them. And Emily and Daniel Bruhl. I mean, I’ve worked with them for a couple of years, so of course, I have a special place in my heart. But as I said, if Kevin [Feige] picked up the phone, I would answer it.”

All of these people throwing cold water on another Captain America movie doesn’t mean much. We know Marvel keeps their talent under lock and key until they are ready to make an official announcement. But when and if that happens I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Skogland’s name in the mix to direct.
