'Captain America: The First Avenger' concludes with the title superhero presumed to be dead, leaving his allies and friends facing an uncertain future. But what exactly happened to Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), Steve Roger's British agent love interest, while the Cap was frozen in ice? Marvel's latest 'One-Shot' short film will answer that question -- and it looks like she didn't spend her post-'Captain America' years lying down on the job.
Although both 'Captain America 2' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' don't arrive in theaters until 2014, the earliest previews are already rolling out. However, both films aren't currently being sold to the mass audiences. No, they're being sold over at the CineEurope conference, where theater owners are given a glimpse at what they can expect to come their way in the near future.
Apart from a resurrected Agent Coulson, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' excites us the most for its ability to tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on a weekly basis, rather than waiting for each individual movie. So, which of Marvel's upcoming slate will have the most direct tie into 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?' Why, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' says series star Clark Gregg!
Our first peek at Sebastian Stan as "The Winter Soldier," the main villain in next year's 'Captain America 2,' came about two weeks ago when the first set photos, featuring the actor in character, arrived. Now an even better look at the new-and-improved Bucky Barnes has shown up, providing a glimpse at the Soldier's most defining characteristic: his robotic arm!
Anyone who saw 'Captain America: The First Avenger' was no doubt taken with Hayley Atwell as Steve Rogers' no-nonsense lady love, Peggy Carter. While the character has been severely scaled down in the sequel, 'The Winter Soldier,' it's heartening to know that we've got more Peggy to look forward to when she gets her own spinoff short film!
Atwell recently revealed some details regarding the short, including when and where we might get a look at it. Jump after the break to find out!
'Captain America 2' is already well into production, made apparent by the numerous set photos of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow kicking ass and Anthony Mackie's Falcon flying high. We still have yet to see pics of its other all-star cast, including Robert Redford, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp and more. But, based on some plot details revealed by the Falcon himself, we imagine it'll look something like what we'll get in 'The Avengers 2.'
Elsewhere in the Marvel universe, while execs are in the midst of a tizzy with all the 'Avengers' stars wanting more zeros on their 'Avengers 2' paychecks, rumors of possible spinoffs have been circulating -- an 'Iron Man' spinoff for Don Cheadle's Rhodey or perhaps even a 'Captain America' spinoff for Anthony Mackie's Falcon. So what's the latest on this front? A resounding no, that's what.
