Earlier this week we heard from the newest addition to the Captain America cast, Anthony Mackie, on what to expect in the highly anticipated sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans adds to the Winter Soldier talk today through an interview with Collider. When asked if he was up to date on the story that will be adapted from the highly acclaimed Ed Brubaker story arc:
Oh, I am fully up to date with my comics. I know all about it. Kevin Feige was talking about [Winter Soldier] when we were filming the first Captain America and well before The Avengers. During the first Captain America we were talking about potential futures and, you know, I don’t want to give too much way.
Evans also reiterates what we have heard in other interviews, many of the Cap-centric scenes that were cut from Joss Whedon’s The Avengers are ripe for exploration in the Cap sequel:
The most I am looking forward to is exploring a little bit of Steve’s…they had all those deleted scenes with The Avengers because a lot of those scenes are for Captain 2, you know what I mean? It was good stuff, but it all felt like that was his story. It is a different movie. With The Avengers there was so much to cram in. Like I said, it was a long movie anyway. So I think making it any longer would have just been exhausting.
Marvel have Evans signed up for at least 6 movies, and as we well know they use their actors well to help shape what they plan to do in future movies. Evans already has a cameo in mind for Marvel’s Phase Two films. While this is just wishful thinking, it wouldn’t be too far a leap to see it actually making its way into the film:
[Chris] Hemsworth and I even talked about that. I would love to do a little thing in Thor 2. It is obviously going to be tricky trying to work out the plot, the reason why I am not there to help him, and why he is not there to help me. But the best thing about Marvel is that, like I said, the movies were so good and we had such a good time making them.
Evans is always a little cagey in interviews, but he seems generally excited to start shooting The Winter Soldier in the first part of 2013. With the cast they have returning, as well as those they are assembling now, it is sure to be worthy of the hype.
