New Poster for Captain America The Winter Soldier

Cap 2, Captain America, Captain America The Winter Soldier, Chris EvansI can’t wait for this.  I don’t know how they’re going to fix the botched Bucky ‘death’ from the first movie, but I love the Winter Soldier as a character and this is going to be THE SHIELD movie.  I would not be surprised to see the end of the first season of Agents of SHIELD tie into this film as it has been advertised as a political thriller with Robert Redford playing a corrupt leader of the organization.  At the very least, it will have a huge impact on the show’s second season.  But here you have your SHIELD A-listers: Fury, Black Widow, Falcon, Cap and Coulson?  Can we get a Cap/Coulson bromance hug reunion?  IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?  Cap 2 opens 4/4/14 and the official synopsis is below:

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “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.

Scarlet Johansson and Anthony Mackie Give More Details on Cap 2

Black Widow and Falcon (or Scarlet Johansson and Anthony Mackie as people who dabble in reality call them) have both given interviews this week that shed a little more light on what we can expect from next year’s first Marvel movie: Captain America The Winter Soldier.

Johansson confirmed that Cap 2 will take place two years after the events of The Avengers, which would put them 18 months  after Iron Man 3 and Thor 2.  If I had to take a wild reason as to the gap, it would be to allow Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD to fill in and flesh out SHIELD as an organization before it takes center stage in Cap 2.

“This film is in real time,” she said in an interview with Refinery29. “It’s been two years since [the characters] appeared, and now both are agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fighting in the streets. We are not superheroes flying side by side. They help each other because we are fighting in a similar way. It’s a working relationship.

“By a series of unfortunate encounters, they will be in a situation in which their friendship becomes more intimate. They share many similarities because they live on the defensive without relying on anyone. Also, the two have been working for the government throughout their professional careers. With their friendship they begin to question what they want and what is their true identity.”

Anthony Mackie has been so excited about playing Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon, that by this point Marvel probably has someone following him around with a tranq gun in case he drops any more tidbits.  In an interview with Rolling Stone, he spoke about his costume in the film and how early footage screened from the film has been received.

“I wanted Falcon to be really lean,” he said. “So it couldn’t have worked out better timing wise. I worked so hard to get my body in shape that I wanted to show it off. So I told Marvel I just wanted to be in spandex. But they decided that they wanted Falcon to be more of a military character, which I’m not complaining about, because my gear looks dope and I get to kick a lot of ass. Ever since I got in good shape, though, I’m all about spandex.”

“It looks amazing [The movie not Mackie, though he’d probably spot you both]. It’s so much bigger than everyone thought it would be, and we’re kicking a lot of ass. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of, especially with Samuel L. Jackson, who’s been my mentor for so many years.”

On whether or not The Falcon will be a recurring character in the MCU, he seems as in-the-dark as everyone….except Samuel L. Jackson who is standing behind you in your house right now looking secretive.

“It can be frustrating at times, because if you’re not “in house” with them, if you’re not one of the people making the vision and you have no way of knowing what’s going on. It’s kind of like a sports game – something great can happen at any moment. One day you’ll get a call from Marvel that’s like, “Hey, we need you in New Mexico right now for The Avengers 2.” I’d ride a moped to that set if I had to. My friends keep saying, “you’ll be doing these forever,” but I don’t know about that. If it works out, it works out. It’s all very hush.”

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
