The Marvel movie event of the Spring is only a few LONG months away! But to get you pumped for the next installment of the Captain America franchise, The Winter Soldier, we have a new still of Cap (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) getting ready to kick some butt! (courtesy of CBM)
Star Chris Evans recently sat down with the LA Times and talked a little about his experience on the set this time around, you can check out the full article here. Evans had the following to say about the newest addition to the S.H.I.E.L.D. team:
“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. 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.”
With the Falcon showing up and also Nick Fury and Maria Hill in the mix, The Winter Soldier will have plenty of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to go around. Especially with the return of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Window! This will be Johansson’s third appearance in a Marvel film, with her previous two being Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. The Huffington Post touched base with her recently in regards to the upcoming thriller and she had the following to say about reprising her role:
HP: “Avengers” had a true ensemble cast. Now you’re in someone else’s movie again. How does “Captain America” differ from “Iron Man 2”?
SJ: My first Marvel film was “Iron Man 2” and then we did “The Avengers” and then Chris Evans and I did “Cap 2,” but I think that film, there’s a couple of new characters. The Falcon [played by Anthony Mackie] is a new character in that, and of course Sebastian Stan is kind of continuing his character, obviously he’s playing the Winter Soldier. But these characters really kind of take on something bigger than they’ve ever seen, so I think it’s something that they can’t do without each other. In that sense, we were in it, kind of neck-and-neck, and it’s a bigger responsibility. But then again, even in “Avengers 2,” we all play in it, it’s not like, “Great, I’ll be booking, like, two days a week and then be eating sandwiches the rest of the week.” No, it’s on. We all are fighting in it together, we’re all fighting our own battles and our own demons and it’s a lot of dramatic work, and the physical part of it, so the films all have their own challenges, but it’s fun.
Captain America: The Winter Solider hit theaters on April 4th!
