Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige has given some significant details regarding the plot for the currently shooting superhero sequel, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. The film will be the third in the studios ‘Phase II’ cinematic universe following IRON MAN 3 and THOR: THE DARK WORLD.
We weren’t going back to World War II. Cap cannot travel in time. So while Tony can go home to Malibu and Thor goes up to Asgard and Hulk can sort of ride the rails, Cap was stuck. So Cap does stay with S.H.I.E.L.D. because he has nowhere else to go. But he’s not necessarily comfortable there. And just as he’s given permission to let go of the past and to focus on the modern world, a ghost comes up. With the Greatest Generation in World World II, there’s a tendency to reflect on that period and say, ‘Things were black and white back then, and now it’s hard to know who the bad guys are.’ ‘We wanted to play on that a little wit Cap being uncomfortable with the way S.H.I.E.L.D., and in particular Nick Fury, operates.
We also have some great concept art giving us the first look at what the defrosted villain (Steve Rogers’ former friend Bucky Barnes) of the title should look like in the upcoming action adventure. If you’ve missed them, we also have images of Anthony Mackie’s heroic new sidekick Sam ‘The Falcon’ Wilson.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is released 4th April 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Frank Grillo, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, and Hayley Atwell. It’s written and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.
