With Iron Man 3 only weeks away Phase 2 of Marvel‘s Cinematic Universe is so close we can taste it! Not that I’d recommend tasting it, probably tastes like some strange mixture of Tony Stark’s leftover whiskey and Hulk’s sweaty shorts. Nah, who am I kidding? Tony wouldn’t have leftover whiskey. That’s crazy talk.
Anyway, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is currently filming, with its release date set for April 4th, 2014. On Monday night they were filming in Los Angeles and JFX Online was there to snap a few pictures of a scene between Cap (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson). Browse through the gallery below, and take note of the new costume Cap’s wearing,
All right, if you did what you were told you would have noticed that new costume of Cap’s looks an awful like what he’s wearing in the Secret Avengers series, as pointed out by Screen Rant. The new costume also officially marks him as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., a role we’ll seen Cap take on in this sequel. There’s a change to Black Widow’s look, too. Johansson is rocking straight, red locks as opposed to the curlier look she’s had in both Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. Again, it’s a change that aligns her more with the comic book interpretation to her character.
What do you think is going on in this scene? It’s an action scene for sure, just look at those harnesses and wires.
Are you excited for The Winter Soldier? How do you think Cap’s official involvement with S.H.I.E.L.D. will pan out? Maybe we’ll see some crossover with Joss Whedon’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I wouldn’t hold your breath, but maybe.
