It’s Action And Intrigue In Two New CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Stills


captain america the winter soldier bannerThe last few days has seen the floodgates open for Marvel news. We’ve gotten clips, teasers, and spoilers about everything from the soon to be released Thor: The Dark World to 2015s Ant-Man. Tuesday morning Marvel released the second poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier along with the news that the first trailer will hit sometime Thursday (click here for that). Well now it’s very early Wednesday morning and some new images from The Winter Soldier have hit thanks to USA Today. Along with the two great pics of Cap (Chris Evans) comes a few quotes from the film’s directors, Joe and Anthony Russo.

The directing duo have said numerous times that The Winter Soldier will have a very 1970s political thriller vibe while still maintaining the big, superhero action we expect from such blockbusters. The Russo’s have a tight quarters elevator fight, pictured in this article, as well as some nosediving Hellicarriers to entertain audiences. Marvel is the perfect studio to pull off what they’re trying to go according to Joe Russo, who says “There’s nobody better at that kind of stuff than Marvel if you’re going to attempt to pull that off and go for it. We all tried to up the ante with what happens in this movie in terms of what’s come before, and I think we’ve done that.” Part of what lets them tackle such a great story is the fantastic comic run from Ed Brubaker the film is based on. Anthony Russo praises Brubaker’s work and how he crafted Bucky Barnes into The Winter Soldier:

He’s an amazingly drawn character. He’s so well conceived. It’s one of the best comic runs in the last 20 years, one of our favorite comic runs of all time, and we really want to do it justice. It was important to us to make sure he just jumped off the page to the screen.

Bucky will cause Cap plenty of trouble and heartache on his own, but the changing geopolitical climate will be a big headache for Steve Rogers. Nick Fury will try to help guide him and show the WWII vet how enemies have become allies and allies have become enemies in the 21st century. Samuel Jackson says “Some of the people who used to be our enemies are now our allies. [The movie sees Steve] trying to figure out, ‘Well, how do we trust those guys?’ or ‘How do we trust the guys that you didn’t trust who don’t trust you?’ And explaining to him that the black and white of good guys/bad guys has now turned into this gray area.” You can click the pictures to see them a little larger. What do you think about the latest round of Captain America news? Stay tuned to CBT for the first trailer this Thursday.
