‘Captain America’ Writers Want MODOK For Sequel

Good news and bad news, MODOK fans. Captain America writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely very much want the classic Marvel villain to appear in their upcoming Winter Soldier sequel — but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen.

“I want to put MODOK into something, but you can’t just drop a giant floating head in,” Markus tells SFX Magazine. “It’s not like ‘Oh, we have to go talk to this guy – there’s something I should tell you about him first …’”

According to Markus, fitting MODOK into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, let alone into a Captain America sequel, would require that the entire movie “take on that structure in order to accommodate him. I never win that fight!”

“But you will never rest,” added McFeely.

For now, fans can count on a third Captain America movie that mirrors the tone of Winter Soldier, albeit with some twists.

“When we hit upon the [Ed] Brubaker run of the comic book, we all said that, with certain exceptions, that’s the tone of Cap’s modern franchise,” McFeely said. “And you can imagine that with us back, with the Russos back, then if you like Winter Soldier you’ll hopefully like the third one, if we do it right!”

Captain America 3 arrives on May 6, 2016.

    They said they wanted 50′s Cap, too. I’ll believe it when I sees it

    I’d rather have 50′s Cap and have John Walker be a black ops USAagent who was active before movie Steve was unthawed.

    Winter Soldier was great, the greatest of the Avengers movie (YES!), so their problem is making it as good as the last one. Not an easy task.
    Good luck.

    Modok would be so interesting and add some cheese to the marvel film universe. since doing him live action would be like when howard the duck was done at the ends of guardians. hilerious hope they some day get to have him pop up.

    I think it’s entirely possibly to do a threatening MODOK who works in the MCU, I reckon the way to go would be to ditch the rocket chair (a bit hokey) and perhaps change the tone a tiny bit to fit. You possibly want to have an ant-colony sort of AIM with a large central hollow sections looking in on all the rooms where the normal AIM agents work, and have MODOK mounted on the end of some sort of arm/umbilical which allows him to move through the base easily to look in on and instruct all the experiments going on.

    The trick here is that you need to make sure there is no confusion with the Leader, who is too valuable a villain for the cinematic universe to risk them seeming like clones of each other.

    MODOK is a bit of a weird character though, depending on how you did him he’d easily fit into Iron man, Cap or Ant-man.

    Let’s hope Patton Oswald gets his wish and gets to play MODOK.

    I think there’s a way to do Modok without making him look cheesy. Green Lantern had it’s problems but what they did with Hector Hammond was pretty cool. Put him in some kind of tricked out support chair. Instead of the ridiculous rocket throne in the comics.

    I think an imaginative filmmaker could pull off a threatening, non-cheesy MODOK, and I think we’ve reached a point at which audiences would accept it in that world. That said, it’s like the Mandarin. A good filmmaker could have probably pulled off all the ring powers without it looking stupid, but it’s still a challenge. These films have become so profitable, you begin to wonder if Marvel is deciding not to push the envelope and rather stick with what works. Eventually that will prove tiresome.

    I thought the Nazi scientist who was downloaded into the the 80s computers was the going to be the mcu movie version of MODOK??
