The next slate of Marvel films will soon be upon us, now that we're about to enter the new year, and the one closest on the horizon is Marvel Studios' 'Captain America 2' (officially titled 'The Winter Soldier). As Empire Magazine drops its latest issue on news stands featuring our patriotic strongman's next standalone mission, new photos from the sequel have hit the web in addition to some new looks at 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'!
Winter is coming ... for Captain America, anyway. As we enter the year filled with such anticipated titles as 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'Godzilla' and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' Empire Magazine has debuted its latest cover featuring new images from the next installment in Marvel's buzzing superhero universe -- 'Captain America 2.'
"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.
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!
Late last week we were surprised by the rumors that 'Once Upon a Time's' producers had quietly begun plotting a Mad Hatter-centric spinoff, potentially re-casting busy 'Captain America: The WInter Soldier' star Sebastian Stan, but whether for damage control or not, it seems the rumor has largely been debunked. 'Once Upon a Time' creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have publicly commented on the prospect of a Mad Hatter spinoff, but what are the chances of it actually happening?
While The CW preps a potential spin-off for 'The Vampire Diaries,' and 'The Office' quietly turned down Dwight Schrute spin-off 'The Farm,' it seems ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' could soon get in on the spin-off game by developing a new series around its popular portrayal of 'Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter. And while as much as Sebastian Stan fans would love to see the actor in his own series, filming commitments to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' may necessitate that the role be recast.
