- CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Marvel’s Phase Two is already well underway with production on Iron Man 3 nearing an end and filming on Thor: The Dark World just getting started.
The next film that will be going into production is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Chris Evans recently revealed that filming on the Cap sequel begins in March of next year.
Collider recently sat down with Evans at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about the serial killer drama The Iceman, and the actor talked quite a bit about Winter Soldier.
Fans of the comics know that The Winter Soldier subtitle refers to a comics arc that finds a brainwashed Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) as the Russian assassin antagonist for Captain America. Steve asked Evans if he’s read the Winter Soldier storyline, to which the actor responded:

“Oh, I am fully up to date with my comics. I know all about it. Kevin Feige was talking about [Winter Soldier] when we were filming the first Captain America and well before The Avengers. During the first Captain America we were talking about potential futures and, you know, I don’t want to give too much way.”
When asked if he knows what will the third film be about the actor slyly replied, “Maybe.”
Evans did go on to reveal that some things that were cut in the Avengers would find its way back into Cap’s sequel film:
“The most I am looking forward to is exploring a little bit of Steve’s…they had all those deleted scenes with The Avengers because a lot of those scenes are for Captain 2, you know what I mean? It was good stuff, but it all felt like that was his story. It is a different movie. With The Avengers there was so much to cram in. Like I said, it was a long movie anyway. So I think making it any longer would have just been exhausting.
A lot of that stuff [that was cut] is for Captain America 2. That is his story. It is him trying to on a personal level adjust to the fact that everyone he knows is gone and the whole Peggy Carter of it all. There are a lot of things that he kind of has to come to terms with. So I don’t know. I am excited to kind of see flashes of the first Captain, if you know what I mean, and to see his memory of what we now know as an audience of who he was.”
Evans is locked into six films for Marvel Studios, and he spoke about having an opportunity to cameo in Thor: The Dark World:

“[Chris] Hemsworth and I even talked about that. I would love to do a little thing in Thor 2. It is obviously going to be tricky trying to work out the plot, the reason why I am not there to help him, and why he is not there to help me. But the best thing about Marvel is that, like I said, the movies were so good and we had such a good time making them.”
This does not confirm that Cap will be popping into Thor anytime soon, but it is an interesting prospect and one that I wouldn’t mind seeing!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4th, 2014.
