CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
With the production finishing its work in Cleveland and heading back to Los
Angeles for the final weeks of
production, the cast and filmmakers reflected upon the creative journey that
With this film being Chris Evans' third, he admits that he
has come to understand what the Marvel films mean to the
people who watch them. "You start to realize that it does do
something for people. It's nice to see people affected or give
them an opportunity to escape and just enjoy a fun ride. It's
a good feeling and it's something I'm taking more seriously
Scarlett Johansson offers, "Movies are about being able to
escape your life or connect pieces of your life and enjoy the
experience. I love the movie-going experience from the popcorn to the previews
to the film itself. I like having
it stay with me afterwards and thinking about it days later. I love that whole
aspect of entertainment, so to be
able to be a part of these films that do that consistently well and are a big
event for people to look forward to
Commenting on the experience of making Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter
Soldier," Samuel L. Jackson
states, "We all know that this is a special franchise and that we're in a
special place because we're doing it, and
we try to come here and bring as much enthusiasm and joy as we can because
that's part of what makes an
audience enjoy what we're doing."
Anthony Mackie feels that when the movie hits theaters, people are going to
be "pleasantly surprised with the
story and the way the characters come across."
"It's so character-driven and so
focused on what's going on in
the world around that you're drawn into it," says Mackie. "I feel like when
people see this movie, they're going
to buy into being a part of that world."
Producer Kevin Feige adds, "The biggest thing that we wanted
to deliver is a movie unlike any other Marvel movie. It is tonally
very, very different. It's got the humor, it's got the action, but
at the same time we see characters exploring their situations
in a much deeper and richer way than we've done in the other
films, and there's a level of action in this film that is above
and beyond anything we've done in any of our films. So we're
excited to have something be so important to the foundation
of what has come before it and what's to come and at the
same time delivering a self-contained adventure film that I
think is going to surprise a lot of people."
"We're as proud of this movie as anything we've done in our careers," states
Joe Russo. "It was an amazingly
collaborative process where we worked with some incredibly talented people.
We're really happy that as fans
of comics we're able to bring what we like about comic books to the big screen
and hopefully that will translate
to audiences around the world."
"We wanted a real intensity to this film," concludes Anthony Russo. "I like
thrill rides and I like when I get on
board something and it doesn't let me go and I forget to eat my popcorn until
halfway through the movie. I
always feel like those are the best movie experiences. You get in there and you
have an emotional journey and
you lose yourself in the filmmaking. Hopefully that's what we accomplished-a
perfect combination of a Super
Hero film with a gritty political thriller."
