Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The inter-connectivity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will prove a tricky mistress in the coming years, particularly with ABC and Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' operating on a smaller scale within the same context. And while 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' would no doubt impact 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' might Cobie Smulders' Maria Hill act as a bridge between 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' and the more imminent 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'?
"Please don't tell anyone you are meeting with Sebastian Stan!"
So came the offer to speak with The Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, at Comic-Con 2013. Anxious to keep his appearance on the panel a secret (in the 'Captain America 2' footage show, Stan only shows up for a brief money shot at the very end), Marvel asked us to also keep our interview secret. We met Stan deep in the bowels of a hotel in a room within a room with a large black curtain draped around us.
There are lots of 'Captain America 2' secrets and Marvel wants to protect them. So, we got started asking Stan all about them.
If you weren't able to attend Comic-Con 2013 this weekend (or if you were there and didn't make it to Hall H on Saturday), you can now view the entire Marvel panel online and catch everything you missed, including 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' and the announcement of 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron.'
With 'Captain America 2' about to reveal its first footage at Comic-Con 2013, the marketing campaign is heating up. Just earlier this week we got our first look at the film's poster and today, we get a new look at some 'Captain America' concept art, highlighting what looks to be the climactic battle in the film between Cap and his former sidekick, and current nemesis, The Winter Soldier.
