Film starts rolling on Captain America: The Winter Soldier next March under the direction of Anthony and Joe Russo, and it seems that no one is looking forward to it more than the Star-Spangled Avenger himself, Chris Evans.
Evans was talking to MTV, and amongst some kind words for future Winter Soldier Sebastian Stan (“He’s such a great guy”), and his admiration for actor Anthony Mackie and the casting coup in getting him signed as The Falcon ( “He’s so great, I’ve known Mackie for a few years now. I’m really happy we got him. We got lucky”), Evans talked about how the series was going to go this way from the beginning:
There were always hints at that. The best thing about [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige is he’s a fan. He’s not just a businessman, he’s a rabid comic book fan. Even during the first Captain America, well before The Avengers, there were whispers of [Winter Soldier] being the sequel. So I’m excited to tackle that.
You can get the whole story from the mouth of Evans himself in the embedded video below:
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released in theaters April 4, 2014.
