Chris Evans Says THE WINTER SOLDIER Took A Toll On His Body: Plus New Pics Featuring Cap And Falcon
Antony Mackie absolutely shined when the Captain America: The Winter Soldier cast assembled to show off the first look at their eagerly anticipated film. Mackie was hilarious and quite charming when he spoke with the countless members of the press outside of the Marvel panel. Since then he’s not been quite as vocal or dominate in the latest rounds of Captain America news. Today he at least gets featured in a neat new picture alongside Chris Evans. The Los Angeles Times had a batch of images and a few quotes from the film’s star.
As we can tell from the trailer and the elevator fight scene that screened with Thor: The Dark World, The Winter Soldier is going to be a very physical film. Even though Chris Evans says Cap is a more realistic hero since he “doesn’t fly, he doesn’t shoot lightning or anything like that; it’s this very meat-and-potatoes approach to super powers,” he still got a few bumps and bruises (but no broken bones) while he was filming. The Russo brothers directed film was a little more demanding than First Avenger and Avengers. Says Evans:
I’ve been more hurt on this movie than I ever have. I haven’t broken a bone, but you get hurt. There was a bunch of fight sequences on this movie where you’re like, ‘Wow, I just destroyed my knee today doing the same roll four or five times,’ but nothing that ice and Advil can’t fix, I suppose.
While Evans had to play through the pain, he gets to explore Steve Rogers more this time. Since being unfroze, we haven’t really had a chance to sit down with Steve and see how he’s adjusting to life in the modern world. There was a little bit of that in Avengers, but nothing like we’ll see in Cap’s upcoming solo movie. Evans talks about Steve and his new friend Falcon:
For Steve, it’s about what is right. 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.
Meeting 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.
The site also had some new images from the film. There were 20 pictures in total, but we had seen several of them before. You can check out the new images and a few we’ve seen before in better quality below. The trailer gave us a look at Anthony Mackie in flight, but the pic of Cap and Falcon running gives us a good look at the costumes. Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, 2014. What do you think about Evan’s comments?
