Hero Complex posted posted their exclusive report from the set of Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which featured a batch of newly released stills from the film including Anthony Mackie’s Falcon!
“For Steve, it’s about what is right,” Evans said about his character in The Winter Soldier. “He’s relatively acclimated to the modern day — it’s not tech shock anymore, he’s not just like, ‘What’s a cellphone?’ It’s more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that’s the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It’s pretty crazy how relevant it is right now.”
Evans also spoke a bit about the introduction of The Falcon in the upcoming sequel, saying “Meeting [Anthony] Mackie’s character, he used to serve, now he works at the VA counseling guys who come home with PTSD — they connect on that level,” Evans continues. “I think they’re both wounded warriors who don’t bleed on other people. Cap has no one to bleed on. I think Mackie knows how to handle people like that. … Sometimes when things are bad, trusting a stranger is the way to go.”
Hero Complex also managed to speak with Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige where he talked about how the film taps into the theme of a 1970s political thriller. “We loved that idea of embracing the conflict that Steve has had in the comics from the moment he thawed out and woke up in the mid-’60s,” Feige said. “Imagine that, going to sleep in the 1940s and waking up and you’ve got the JFK assassination and MLK and RFK and Woodstock and Watergate. Clearly, we’re not doing any of that stuff, but we’re embracing the tone of those comics.”
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk.
Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Emily VanCamp, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Toby Jones, Frank Grillo, Robert Redford, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson and will arrive in theaters on April 4, 2014.
