'The Avengers' (and now 'Avengers 2') director Joss Whedon has been involved with many aspects of the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe in making sure all the standalone movies jive with what he has in the works for the major team-ups. For 'Captain America 2,' though it was pretty much assumed, Whedon has been confirmed to have directed one of the post-credits scenes, which should already tell you something ...
Had enough yet of 'Captain America 2'? How about 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'? As both films continue to release clip after clip after trailer, new looks have debuted online in the form of -- you guessed it -- new clips, featuring Robert Redford's turn as mysterious Agent Alexander Pierce and Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborn back from school.
Keeping in mind that we've already seen a hefty clip from the beginning of the film on top of multiple trailers and behind-the-scenes footage, the latest 'Captain America 2' clip shows Steve Roger's first action-packed encounter with the title villain, 'The Winter Soldier.' If the clips keep churning out at this rate, we might already get to see a good chunk of the film before its April 4 release time. Still, this brief scene will satiate fans' thirst for more previews and get your blood pumping in the process.
The highly anticipated 'Captain America 2' (officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'), which, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, is supposed to completely change the public's perception of what a superhero movie is, started screening for press. Now, thanks to social media, the first 'Captain America 2' reviews are trickling in and word is overwhelmingly positive.
With Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy recently announced, it's fair to say fans were a little worried (if only in the back of their minds) that her stake in the Marvel landscape could be lessened for the time being. But rest assured, she's more a part of it than ever before, and a new featurette delving into her Black Widow return in 'Captain America 2' shows she's just as badass.
Marvel dropped an extended 'Captain America 2' trailer, giving us one major look at the next installment and exciting fans to the point of mass hysteria. Well, perhaps it's not as dramatic as that, but this is the most extensive look yet at the sequel, officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
We live in a world where every major movie rolls out a series of character posters highlighting individual cast members and their roles, so it's about time the title villain of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' gets his due. Following in the footsteps of the Black Widow, Nick Fury and Captain America posters, the mysterious Winter Soldier now has a one-sheet of his own.
If Marvel decided to stop releasing TV spots and trailers for 'Captain America 2,' we probably wouldn't complain. After all, we've been sold on this movie since the moment it was announced - we just want to know when we can get in line. Regardless, they've gone ahead and unleashed another lengthy TV spot and we've gone ahead and watched it. And it still looks really good.
A few months ago, we learned that the terrific Thomas Kretschmann was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as supervillain Baron von Strucker (though Marvel refrained from acknowledging it) and we immediately assumed his appearance in 'The Avengers 2' would be a one-and-done performance.
