Showing up at the Toronto Film Festival the other week to promote “The Iceman”, actor Chris Evans spoke with Collider about how the upcoming sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is progressing.
Evans confirmed that filming begins March next year and that he’s read up on the Winter Soldier arc in which Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) has been rescued from an icy death and brainwashed into becoming a Russian assassin.
“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.”
Evans admits that many of the cut scenes from Marvel’s “The Avengers”, quite a few of which are included in the DVD/Blu-ray release, could basically be scenes from a direct “Captain America” sequel.
“They had all those deleted scenes with The Avengers… 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 also indicated he’d like to make a cameo in the currently shooting “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.”
