Joe Johnston Wants To Make A Winter Soldier Movie And A Boba Fett Movie

Good villains always get their spin-offs.

Coming at you.... summer 2015?

It just wouldn’t be a superhero movie without some talk of a spin-off ahead of the actual release.

Slash got some words from Joe Johnston and the screenwriters of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER about what directions a sequel could take - - and where they’d want to take it. Basically confirming what I’ve suspected ever since Sebastian Stan’s casting announcement mentioned appearances in five to six pictures, Johnston’s expressed interest in doing a movie about the Winter Soldier.

I actually got to see CAPTAIN AMERICA last week (and it was phenomenal. Seriously. Best Marvel movie yet) and, without saying more than needs to be said, this twist would be workable. I think it's more workable is to have Bucky show up to bedevil Steve in a proper CAP sequel first, and then let that be the catalyst for a Winter Soldier spin-off.

And speaking of spin-offs for villains, Johnston also said that he’s been bugging George Lucas about doing a Boba Fett solo movie. Even though Johnston was one of the creators of Boba Fett while he was working at ILM, I honestly don’t see such a project going anywhere past idle discussion. At most, I could see it develop into Johnston directing some Fett-focussed episodes of the live-action STAR WARS series (whenever it comes out.)

Well, at least now we know when Bucky will be resurrected comic-side =P

GIVE THIS MAN MONEY TO MAKE THESE MOVIES! 
YES, ALL THE MONEY!

I wouldn't mind seeing a Winter Soldier movie. Hopefully the actor who plays Bucky in the Captain America film does a good job. 

Posted by batmanboy11

I really hope we see the Winter Soldier stuff done in Cap 2 and/ or a spin-off movie

If Winter Soldier is done right then it woudl be really good.

MAKE THIS HAPPEN...NOW!

You got to see the movie!! I have to wait till 29th of July.

Winter Soldier on the big screen? This rocks!

Posted by Nova`Prime`

I think Winter Soldier in Cap 2 would work and then a Winter Soldier solo movie that focuses on redemption and escape from Soviet, or more then likely HYDRA, control obviously helped along by the Black Widow.

Joe Johnston is crazy.....good crazy

I'd love to see some expanded universe Star Wars movies.

Edited by NightFang

Winter Soldier sould be a spin-off for Captain America and Boba Fett should just be a CGI-animated movie.

Bucky Fett

I agree, Winter Soldier in a Capt. movie first, then he gets his own movie.
Anyone see that The Hunted?  Its about a soldier and his student who has now gone rogue, the sodier (Tommy Lee Jones) must hunt down his rogue student (Benicio Del Toro).  Reminded me of Captain America having to hunt down and stop the Winter Soldier (just without costumes).

I'm all for a Winter Soldier movie.

what liveaction Starwar tv show?

Both excellent choices for movies! Of course, just because they SAY they want such movies to happen doesn't mean they will.  I'll stay positive though!

Posted by The Lobster

Give this man the money!!
 
I want both of these movies to happen.

Either cyborg Arnim Zola or Winter Soldier working with the reborn Red Skull in the Cpt. America Sequel...

Posted by KingLoki

 This is how it should go down.
 
Captain America 2- Baron Zemo, Crossbones, possibly Arnim Zola
Captain America 3- Red Skull returns, Doctor Faustus, Winter Soldier
 
Winter Soldier spin-off movie- movie about redeeming himself and such. 
 
New Captain America trilogy- Steve is "killed" and Bucky takes the mantle of Captain America for one or two films.

Considering all the good Fett stories out there comic and novel, I would be happy to see a film on the galaxy's famous bounty hunter.

Bucky has to appear in the sequel first

Edited by Blastov

I agree with having a Winter Soldier spin-off after an appearance in Cap sequel. 
It would be awesome if the framing narrative of the spin-off shows that cap is actually piecing the story together from the incomplete file that SHIELD has on him. 
It would be even a nice spin to emphasize the incompleteness and inaccuracy of the file so that a nice spin would be a reveal that Cap realizes that Bucky is slowely regaining his conciousness or actively fighting off the brainwashing. I'm picturing it kinda like the big reveal in the Usual Suspects, something you can only do when you have  a story with lopsided narrative. 
 
But listen to me babble on...

Id love to see a Bobba Fett film! The only problem is that the Star Wars fan boys would groan about them milking it, again, no matter how good the film is.
 
Also Winter Soldier film - after - the second Cap film.

Winter Soldier is an interesting character but I would rather them not do it just as another Marvel movie. I love Marvel movies, but I mean not really a superhero movie. The Winter Solider could be their version of Borne Identity. This guy who is a mindwiped killer goes back for revenge against the people responsible. This could be a way to involve Black Widow or combine them into one movie. They share similar histories.

Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy

No.  Leave Star Wars alone. George Lucas is the creator and he is already screwing it up by doing all this extra stuff. Don't need anyone else screwing it up.
Boba Fett is suppose to be a major character in the upcoming live action Star Wars tv series, so I think that will be enough.
Too much Boba will kind of take away the 'coolness' of Boba. 
Boba became a insanely popular character when in fact he is sort of a minor character.
Keep it that way.

Why are we not funding this?

Posted by lostlantern13

Instead of exclaiming more happiness about a Winter Soldier movie...
 
I'm going to use this comment to give more props to Ed Brubaker. Why? He made Bucky Barnes so cool that people want a friggin' movie of him. Bravo, Brubaker. Bravo.

I would love to see the Winter Soldier movie.  Sounds like a great idea, and like Cap, I would pay to go see it.  On the topic of the Boba movie.. I just don't care.  I gave up on Star Wars awhile ago, and only occasionally pick up novels if I run out of reading materiel.  Sure if it was good and not just another attempt at a cash grab, I'd see it on DVD but I wouldn't pay to see it in Theaters.  So yeah, he can do both and the only one I'm going to care about is Winter Soldier. :/

Posted by Bestostero

I would watch a Winter Soldier movie...
 
Also psyched that you enjoyed the movie, i really want to enjoy it.

Posted by FadeToBlackBolt

Booo! on both accounts. 
 
Star Wars should not have another film made, and certainly not one about Boba Fett. 
And Winter Soldier is not a character who deserves a film yet. We still don't have an Ant-Man movie.

Winter Soldier film would be awesome.

The movie isn't out and there's already talks of a sequel/spinoff!

Posted by The Impersonator
@The Poet: George Lucas hasn't confirmed the title yet. But the story sets between Episode 3 and 4. The series was supposed to air sometime in 2011. Unfortunately, it was delayed due to budget concerns.
Posted by FortressoftheMoon

A bucky movie I can understand. But why a Boba fett movie? That's is just a waste of time.

I've never really understood why people see Boba Fett as being so "bad-ass".  In Empire and Return, all he basically did was stand around.  The one time he really got active was in Return when he fell into the Sarlacc pit.  The only other time he did anything remotely cool was in the Star Wars X-Mas TV special...'nuff said about that. 
Let's face it, within the Star Wars universe, he may have gained a reputation good enough so all he has to do is just stand there and look cool.  However, we, the viewing audience, have absolutely no knowledge of how he may have achieved this status and he just looks like a lazy douchebag as things stand. 
So, what I'm saying is any in-canon movie that expands on the Boba Fett legend and shows us why we should think he's so awe-worthy is certainly needed.

BOBA FETT!!!!

Winter Soldier movie? Hell freaking yes please! 
 
Boba Fett movie? Eh, not so much.

Posted by TheMess1428

Winter Soldier would make a great villain for Captain America 2. His own movie, I don't see it...

Posted by CATPANEXE

It could work. I think I would want an R rated film for it though.
Boba? Maybe. I'm still holding my breath for a Dark Empire film though (as you can see I'm purple faced)

Posted by SpidermanWins

I'm all for it

Posted by Wingfoot

Hi ! 
 
Lucas will never give a buck for Boba Fett. This character is famous and iconic for the Star Wars fans only and only lives in the expanded universe. In the movies, Fett is just a gun for hire with a helmet and a jetpack who dies like a scumbag. Oh ! yes, he is a nasty boy too... 
 
I like very much the Winter Soldier - the concept is really cool - but he is not known enough for a movie, as a main character. 
 
Hihane washte.

How much of Hank Pym have you read, mate? He's the best Avenger by a field. And use the name "Scientist Supreme" for the movie ;)
