CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Is The Most Important Lead-In For AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

The Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors say their film has a "very strong hand off to 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'." Kevin Feige calls "Winter Soldier" the biggest bridge of all the Phase 2 films.


Brothers and co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss their upcoming film, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" with the Huffington Post and state that the events of their film are the most important in terms of heading into "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Said Joe Russo, "There's a very strong connection in the narrative between the events of the end of "Avengers" that drive this film -- and there's a very strong hand off to "Avengers 2" at the end of this movie. And Kevin Feige's whole thing is that this is the biggest bridge of all of Phase 2 movies; it really is. It does involve the most amount of Avengers of any of the films in Phase 2, and it has sort of a, you know, there's a very big shift in the universe at the end of this movie."

An interesting development/revelation. In terms of headcount, the film boasts the most number of Avengers team members in Captain America, Falcon and Black Widow. And who knows where the Winter Soldier's loyalties may lie by the time the film's closing credits roll.

For a while, many assumed "Thor: The Dark World" or "Guardians of the Galaxy" would be the most important film leading up to "The Avengers 2" as it was thought that Thanos would be the primary antagonist. But alas, it's Ultron and the events that unfold in "The Winter Soldier" will echo the loudest within the confines of the "Age of Ultron."
