Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says that the upcoming sequel "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is tonally more akin to a political thriller than the historical fantasy adventure of the first movie. Asked about comic book movie adaptations in general, Feige says:
"If it is a fad, it's one that lasts 30 to 40 years, as the Western did, because each one is so different. There's an opportunity to graft almost sub-genres onto them.
Our first Captain America film was a World War II picture, and the next is a political thriller. They all have their own textures and patinas, and that's what is exciting about it."
Chris Evans, Emily VanCamp, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Scarlett Johansson and Toby Jones all star.
