Tons of info about Cap from Newsarama! Man, this sounds pretty amazing. Can't wait till we see a trailer!
Feige immediately said, "The next one is Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and brings out the directors, then Frank Grillo, he introduced Emily Van Camp as "Agent 13 aka Sharon Carter!" Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, Sebastian Stan "used to go by the name Bucky Barnes, now Winter Soldier," Samuel L Jackson, Scarlet Johansson as Natasha Romanoff, and Chris Evans, Captain America are all on the stage.
Evans says it's better every time he puts on the suit. Cap isn't used to the new morality of the world, "It's harder to know what's right and wrong. Sometimes the actions you have to take certain threats compromise our civil liberties and privacy, and that's hard for Steve to swallow."
How integral is Natasha to the story? Johansson: "Integral." Feige: "She and Cap really share this film." Johansson, "She and Cap now have this relationship that they've built. It's an opportunity to see how she is in a more casual working relationship with somebody. It breaks down the barriers that she's put up. You learn more about her each time." She promises the "film is gritty, down, dirty knuckle fighting. A lot of action in this one."
How does it feel every time the eyepatch goes on, Sam? "Pretty bad ass!" Jackson says that Fury thinks of these people as "instruments of justice. Tools. But people that he cares about. He and Steve have a way of talking because they're both warriors. But he also knows Steve has a black-and-white view of the enemy and the good guys. he doesn't know how that changed. That's the grey area that S.H.I.E.L.D. works in. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie, and sometimes he has to figure out when he's lying to himself."
Sebastian Stan is thrilled to bring this story to the screen, and Feige said that it follows Brubaker's story "pretty close when it comes to Bucky's story."
Mackie, on the Falcon says, "I'm introducing Sam Wilson. I have wings and guns! That's all you need! That's what I got! So me and Cap go out and give him the business, her the business, that's what we do. Hand out the business."
Feige of the directors, the Russos says "we've always been rewarded by hiring really talented people. Let's show you why we hired them."
And it's clip time.
It starts with the Triskelion. Cap's in his Super Soldier costume and looks awesome. He's going down an elevator with some guys with guns who have their hands on the holster. He notices, and is worried. One starts to sweat - something is up. Three huge guys get on the elevator. Cap feels like he's being set up (and is probably right). "Before we get started, does anyone wanna get out?" They all attack him, and he systematically DESTROYS them. Insane applause at the end, and he flips his shield into his hand. "I joined SHIELD to protect people," he says to Robert Redford's character. "Captain, to build a better world sometimes means tearing the old one down." Quick shots of supporting castmembers. A new helicarrier. In fact, many of them. "This isn't freedom, this is fear."
Black Widow kicking ass. Agent 13, too. Falcon dropping from the helicarrier and extending his wings. A helicarrier going down, and the logo - crowd goes wild. Shield is down in the ground, and Bucky's metal arm picks it up. And scene.
Joe and Anthony Russo talking about their film next, Joe says "it stems from 70s style political thrillers. We keep saying this is the best job we've ever had. I've read comics since I was 10 and presenting footage at Hall H is a dream come true."
Smulders says Maria Hill's part is "to basically find her way in this new world we find ourselves in."
Van Camp said, "It's been awesome and a little bit intimidating" to join this cast. "It's an awesome experience. We can't say too much."
Frank Grillo as Brock said, "It's a lot of fun and that's as much as I can say I guess!"
Huge round of applause for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and this cast leaves the stage.
I'm really excited for this movie! I've been reading a lot of the interviews and all that from SDCC and it just makes me think that like TFA was my favorite Phase 1 movie, this has a very good chance to be my favorite Phase 2 movie!
Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, too, Jad. It looks like it's gonna be lots of fun, and I'm especially excited to see the team-up between Cap and Widow, actually. She'll probably get to be more spy-like in this movie, which will be super cool.
Some more cool info about the new Cap movie! There's a pretty cool interview with the Russos where they confirm multiple outfits in the movie and they talk of how there's a themetic arc to them. They also talk a little about Falcon's costume and about Widow being in a team. They also talk about Cap's new fighting skills, which Chris Evans also brings up in this interview where he compares it to Cap's athleticism in the Cap video game a couple years ago. He also says he did some training in parkour and gymnastics for the movie!
Pretty cool stuff! I get the feeling we're gonna get to see Cap (and maybe Widow) kinda really have some major issues with SHIELD, which will probably lead into Avengers 2. I don't think we're exactly gonna be seeing Fury and SHIELD need to bring the team together, so we can kinda see the darker side of SHIELD a bit more than we did in phase 1.
Yeah, we're definitely going to see the shady side of SHIELD and half the team never particularly trusted SHIELD in Avengers 1 before they learned about the weapons they were creating so it seems like they'll be operating on their own in AoU. I can see the Avengers trying to warn SHIELD about Ultron and Maria Hill blowing them off.
Maria Hill always does that. That's one of many reasons nobody likes her. Many, many reasons. Of course, she wasn't so unlikeable in Avengers, but she's played by Cobie Smulders and doesn't do that much, so I guess that's not surprising. That's probably set to change in Avengers 2, though!
Man, a lot of Cap interviews and another scene was screened at D23 and it just gets me more and more excited for thsi movie. Chris sounds super excited when he talks about it and he's really confident this movie will be awesome. I've seen some interviews with the Russo brothers too and they sound really on the ball and know exactly what they want to do. Chris has also revealed that he thinks the filming for Avengers: AoU will start this March! So much excitement, its a great time to be an Avengers fan. Now if we can just get a video game, haha.
Man, that trailer is so friggin awesome! I really like the brief little shots we get to see of the reworked WWII costume. Both that and the SHIELD outfit has Chris looking a lot more buff than what he wore in Avengers. I love the tease of Winter Soldier too. They made Falcon look awesome in flight too, way cooler than I thought it'd be though I still wish he had a bit of red on him, haha. Tasha is looking great too! The cool action scene with her falling backwards and firing off her guns. It looks like she'll get her at some point, since ya can see Cap carrying her. Though I don't know if it's her on the operating table.
How you guys liking the trailer!
