Marvel Studios, an owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, is set to begin shooting the political-thriller superhero feature film sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in late April, 2013. The locations where filming will take place are Los Angeles, Cleveland, and Washington DC. Disney casting directors for Marvel are auditioning actors in Los Angeles with additional casting to take place in Cleveland and DC. Extras also will cast in all cities where filming is taking place. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has announced that they will release the film in theaters on April 4, 2014 in both in 2D and 3D. The working title for “Captain America: The First Avenger” was Frostbite, and the working title for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is Freezerburn.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will center on Steve Rogers/Captain America’s relationship with sidekick Bucky, who fell to his apparent death in “Captain America: The First Avenger”. He returns as the brainwashed assassin Winter Soldier. This sequel will be a completely different genre in that it will be a political-thriller themed film, just as the first film was a 1940s World War II themed film. Sam Wilson/Falcon is introduced as a central character that is the first African American superhero. Steve Rogers finds himself with a new love interest in the beautiful and highly athletic Sharon Carter, who is also known as Agent 13 of the international security agency S.H.I.E.L.D.
Starring in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is five-time Teen Choice Award nominee Chris Evans returning as Steve Rogers/Captain America; five-time Teen Choice Award nominee Emily VanCamp has been cast as Steve Rogers’ love interest and female lead role of Sharon Carter/Agent 13; Academy Award winner Robert Redford has joined the cast and will play the role of a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agency Leader; four-time Golden Globe Award nominee Scarlett Johansson is back as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow; Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as Nick Fury; the beautiful and talented Cobie Smulders returns as Agent Maria Hill; Sebastian Stan is back as James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes, who becomes The Winter Soldier. Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Anthony Mackie has been cast to play the role of Falcon; Frank Grillo will play the supervillain Brock Rumlow/Crossbones.
Primetime Emmy Award winning Cleveland, Ohio native brothers Joe and Anthony Russo will direct “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” from an adapted screenplay written by the Primetime Emmy Award winning writing team of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The Russo brothers direct most of their work together, and they are also producers, screenwriters, actors, and editors. In addition to film directing, they are highly sought after television series pilot directors. Ron Howard got the brothers hired to direct the pilot for Fox’s “Arrested Development,” for which they won an Emmy Award. They are credited with creating the visual style that made Arrested Development extremely popular. Markus and McFeely’s writing credits include “The Chronicles of Narnia” trilogy, “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Michael Bay’s “Pain & Gain,” and “Thor: The Dark World” among others.
Stan Lee, Former president and chairman of Marvel Comics, will executive produce. Victoria Alonso, Marvel Studios executive vice president of visual effects and post production, will also executive produce. Kevin Feige, co-president of Marvel Studios will oversee production for the studio. Feige has been involved in all of Marvel Studios theatrical productions since the first X-Men film in 2000. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo will also produce under the banner of their production company Russo Brothers, Inc. Vita Ray Productions II LLC, which is an owned subsidiary of Marvel Entertainment, is the main production company for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.
