Marvel Studios and Disney have announced that production of Captain America: The Winter Soldier has officially begun. Check out the official press release below. They have included a behind the scenes image of Chris Evans’ Captain America looking at the S.H.I.E.L.D. crest. The press release also establishes who Robert Redford is playing as well. 

 

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Following in the footsteps of the record-breaking Marvel Studios’ release, “Marvel’s The Avengers,” production on the highly anticipated release, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” has commenced in Los Angeles, Calif., with production also including locations in Cleveland, Ohio, and Washington D.C. Directing the film is the team of Anthony and Joe Russo (“Welcome to Collinwood”) from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) & Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The First Avenger”). Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” returns Chris Evans (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America, along with Scarlett Johansson (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 2”) as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 2”) as Nick Fury. In addition, film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release in the U.S. on April 4, 2014.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.   

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” features an outstanding supporting cast that includes Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Black Swan”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker,” “Million Dollar Baby”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Cobie Smulders (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “How I Met Your Mother”) as Agent Maria Hill, Frank Grillo (“Zero Dark Thirty”) as Brock Rumlow and Georges St-Pierre (“Death Warrior”) as Georges Batroc. Rounding out the talented cast are Hayley Atwell (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Peggy Carter, Toby Jones (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “The Hunger Games”) as Arnim Zola, Emily VanCamp (“The Ring 2,” “Revenge”) as Agent 13 and Maximiliano Hernández (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Thor”) as Agent Jasper Sitwell.

Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch (“Elysium,” “District 9”), production designer Peter Wenham (“21 Jump Street,” “Fast Five”), editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. (“Star Wars: Episode 7,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (“The Hunger Games,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”).

Marvel Studios’ upcoming release schedule includes “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013, and “Thor: The Dark World” on November 8, 2013. The studio most recently produced the critically acclaimed “Marvel’s The Avengers,” which set the all-time, domestic 3-day weekend box office record at $207.4 million. The film, which shattered both domestic and international box office records, is Disney’s highest-grossing global and domestic release of all time and marks the studio’s fifth film to gross more than $1 billion worldwide.

Hey Redford kicked serious ass behind a desk in Spy Game.  I am thinking this is the kind of role they imagine for this film.

 Umm....I could have sworn That in the past I recalled reading that Hayley Atwell wasn't returning. Hope I'm wrong about this beacuse I really dug that lady. She's one hot mama who's more than worthy of being in a Super hero flick!

Hayley is very sexy.  I own 4 of her movies.  That said I don't know if she needs to be in this.  I won't be upset if she is.

wvugopher 4/8/2013 2:11:15 PM

she might be involved with  discovering that Bucky has been turned into an assasin in her time.

I'm sure they will, but they better step up the action for this next movie. I wanna see Cap do some unbelievable amazing things. I think he's a lot more than a naive, almost useless dude in blue spandex that everyone pretends needs to be there.

Btw is it just me or does anyone else think they should just go ahead and go for the white feather things on his head piece?? Cuz as Hanso put it a few times, he looks like a "pipi head" hahahaha

 While I'm totally jazzed that Redford has joined the cast, I must say, I'm just a little disappointed...those who follow current comics know that Marvel has recently introduced Nick Fury, Jr. into regular continuity, and he is pretty much the Sam Jackson "Ultimate" Nick Fury...well, the fan rumor was that Redford would be playing none other than the real, original, cigar-chompin' Nick Fury, of Nick Fury and The Howling Commandos.  That would have been badass.

Zillaman you change your name to Kensai now?

violator yeah I'm hoping too for some acrobatic fighting from Cap akin to the brief fight Blonski had with the Hulk in the park. Something to show his skills, powers and abilities
