At this point, there’s every reason to expect that an actor with a major Marvel movie role will have signed a six-film deal. So this week’s revelation from Sebastian Stan of a nine-picture deal isn’t a huge surprise, despite the fact that it tops even Samuel L. Jackson’s epic deal. (As far as we know. Other cast members might have similar contracts.) But it does tell us a bit about what to expect from his character. Stan played Bucky Barnes in Captain America: The First Avenger, and has a significant role in sequel The Winter Soldier.
Since The Winter Soldier doesn’t open for a couple more weeks we won’t reveal any specifics of Stan’s potential future role with Marvel, but after the break we’ll indulge in a bit of speculation. Read More »

Having seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I can confirm the action this time around is much more guttural. The punches, the kicks, the crashes and falls all have a realistic weight to them. You can practically feel the bones crunching in the theater. Case in point: this awesome new Captain America Winter Soldier clip, which features Cap (Chris Evans) chasing the mysterious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) after an assassination attempt. Who or what was shot at? You’ll have to wait until the film comes out April 4 for that answer, but below check out the excellent aftermath below. Read More »

With exactly one month to go until the release date, Marvel has unveiled a new Captain America: The Winter Soldier TV spot that’s chock full of fresh footage. And while it’s not like the earlier ads were stingy with the action, this 60-second promo may be the most adrenaline-pumping one yet.
The focus this time is on the Winter Soldier of the title (Sebastian Stan), specifically the amount of death and destruction he’s rained down on the world. Falcon (Anthony Mackie) gets a good chunk of screentime as well. Watch the video after the jump.

The trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier showed off brief flashes of the second character in the film’s title, and we’ve seen some concept art (such as the image above) that gave us a good idea of how the film had brought the character to the screen. (In a word: faithfully.) Now there’s a new image that gives a better look at the character, who might turn out to be one of the more entertaining screen villains of 2014. Read More »
Marvel Studios just unveiled the first footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it looked unlike anything else the company has released. We’ve heard that the film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, would be something like a thriller, but this footage really showed off a movie that deeply integrates current interests and fears about how we’re managing national security. In short, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is from a time where political morality seemed pretty black and white, and is now dealing with a modern world in which everything is drawn in shades of grey.
The Russos and Evans were joined on stage by Scarlett Johansson, whose Black Widow plays a very big role in the film, as well as Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Emily Van Camp, Maria Hill, and Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier of the title.
We’ll give you some panel highlights and run down the footage after the break. Read More »

Roughly seven decades will have passed between Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) will learn the hard way that the past still has a way of catching up with you.
Those familiar with the comics know that the new film’s title refers to James “Bucky” Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Cap’s onetime BFF who returns as a powerful nemesis. We’ve still got some time to wait before we see the two cross paths, as The Winter Soldier doesn’t land until next spring. But a just-revealed bit of concept art hints at what their fiery showdown might look like. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
