With the release of Captain America: The Winter Solider in early April and The Avengers: Age Of Ultron to begin filming soon, both movies are getting everyone talking and excited.
Chris Evans, Captain America himself, wanted to make sure and clarify he’s not planning on bailing out with Marvel after some comments he made might have been misunderstood. Saying…
“Oh yeah, this was a big thing! I gotta watch what I say. I will absolutely clarify. I have a six-movie contract with Marvel and I absolutely plan on fulfilling them. This is without a doubt the biggest blessing in my life. Marvel has literally changed the game for me, and they make great movies. I did direct last year and it was a really fantastic experience, I really enjoyed it. So I’m certainly looking to do that a bit more, so when it comes to exploring other acting jobs I may not be as proactive in trying to find those, I may kind of stick with my Marvel universe in terms of getting in front of the camera, and then getting behind the camera outside of it.”
Of course if you’re a big fan of Marvel and you seen all the movies you are well aware you don’t leave before the credits are through rolling and Captain America: The Winter Solider won’t be any different. Joss Whedon, director of the first Avengers movie and also next years Age Of Ultron directed one of the of the post-movie scenes while Kevin Feige got to direct the other one.
It’s also been reported that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo will officially return to direct Captain America 3 even though “The Winter Solider” hasn’t even hit theaters yet. The two directors couldn’t say what the third film will be about yet, but could say this.
“We’re just in the formative stages of it right now. We just started breaking story with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and we’re just getting an idea of what we wanna do with it. It’s crazy working on it before the movie even comes out because you want to see what people respond to in the movie. You want to get some inspiration from what people like about the film so you go, ‘Okay, this is what we gotta lean into in the next movie’ or ‘this is what we should move away from, this didn’t work so well.’ So we’re just in that phase of breaking story but waiting to see how people respond to the movie.”
Finally, Scarlett Johansson has talked some about The Avengers: Age Of Ultron and what she thought of the script director Joss Whedon has written for the highly anticipated sequel.
“I was just amazed—Joss is something else, he really is. He locks himself away for God knows how long; I think he has the dark circles to prove it. He just came out with something totally solid. I was really impressed by his ability to make this ever-expanding Marvel universe feel very close-knit and cerebral and progressive. I mean this movie feels like the continuation of The Avengers, it doesn’t feel like a tag-on or the rehashed version or just ‘let’s throw a bunch of new characters in there and keep the thing alive.’ It really feels like the next step, and all of our characters, our relationships with one another continue to progress, become more intertwined, more complicated, more meshed. And the film has a lot of great comic book moments that the fans are gonna love, but it’s also got a lot of really great dramatic moments that audience members, I think, will really relate to.”
