Double the Marvel-ous trouble as new set pics have arrived for Bryan Singer’s time-travelling side-prequel, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST as well as Joe and Anthony Russo’s CAPTAIN AMERICA sequel, THE WINTER SOLDIER.
Both projects are currently shooting, with 20th Century Fox’s mutant-filled follow-up to FIRST CLASS, recently causing a bit of a headache for Disney and Marvel Studios by announcing the late inclusion of the character Quicksilver. A superhero that Joss Whedon had earlier confirmed would be part, along with twin sister Scarlet Witch, of his AVENGERS sequel. Perhaps Fox thought they’d back down but Whedon is undeterred and will press on with his vision. Going back to Singer’s ensemble, check out these new set images of 70s-inspired Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Peter Dinklage.
Possibly more exciting is the first sighting, albeit hazy, of CAPTAIN AMERICA’s sub-titled protagonist THE WINTER SOLDIER. For those not in the know, he’s the re-animated corpse of Sebastian Stan, who returns as former friend Bucky Barnes, unfrozen in present day and programmed by Frank Grillo’s Crossbones as an evil undead assassin. As you can see, they’re trying to keep this (and him) as wrapped up as possible. It must be nippy!
X-MEN:DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and co-stars Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Nicholas Hoult, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Anna Paquin, Evan Peters, Ellen Page and is set for cinemas 18th July 2014.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER co-stars Scarlet Johansson, Chris Evans, Robert Redford, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Maxilano Hernadez, Toby Jones and is set for release on 4th April 2014.
