Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Drops More Details About The Winter Soldier And Ultron

Describing the differences between Captain America and his former sidekick, Kevin Feige talks about how The Winter Soldier has "robotically" been following orders for the past 70 years, while he also teases that Tony Stark's "free will" will be a major issue for Ultron. Check it out!

"The movie takes place in the modern day, with Cap struggling for his position in the world, and just when he thinks he might be finding his niche, we throw in something from his past to throw him for a loop," Marvel Studios President and Captain America: The Winter Soldier executive producer Kevin Feige reiterated in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly when asked about Bucky's return. "Winter Soldier has been methodically, almost robotically, following orders for 70 years, and Captain America is struggling with what it means to serve a country, to serve a government, and whether the ideals he grew up with still apply." What's interesting about this comment is that Feige confirms - that just like the comic books - The Winter Soldier has been operating since being discovered during WWII, thereby perhaps putting to rest speculation that we might be dealing with an LMD doppelgänger. However, his use of the word "robotically" could easily be used to counter that argument! Anyway, when talk turned to another Marvel villain - James Spader's Ultron in The Avengers: Age of Ultron - Feige offered up an idea of what motivated the evil android. "There is an element of free will that our heroes have, that all humans have, whether it’s Thor or Steve Rogers — and certainly Tony Stark is the poster boy for free will. That’s what Ultron resents."

Is there a chance of the third Cap film being called "The Summer Soldier" & Cap hits the beach with Black Widow & Bucky.
They surf,have a BBQ & sing songs!

"Your work has been a gift to mankind. You have shaped the century, and I need you to do it one more time."

When I heard that in the trailer, I had no doubt that it was being said to The Winter Soldier. The Winter Soldier is going to be great!

How has Bucky not aged for the past 70 years? I don't know the explanation in the comics since I never followed Cap much.
ckal - 10/31/2013, 11:32 AM
I'm guessing some kind of serum or crazy soviet stuff but idk.
seyrie - 10/31/2013, 11:34 AM
@ckal. I believe in the comics, he is put into cryostasis after every mission, and he is then 'rebooted' whenever they need him for another mission.
DonaldBlake68 - 10/31/2013, 11:40 AM
No only that but he does have some sort of Russian Super Soldier Serum, so he probably ages a lot like Cap
TheBeard - 10/31/2013, 11:40 AM
^ correct
TheBeard - 10/31/2013, 11:41 AM
@seyrie is correct i mean
knocturnalzen10 - 10/31/2013, 11:44 AM
wonder if truder will use 1 or 2 hands to rub one out for Feige on this article ..............................?
SageMode - 10/31/2013, 11:44 AM

Bucky was given the Infinity Formula (the same stuff that's in Nick Fury) that made his aging slow down.
Nomis - 10/31/2013, 11:45 AM
@ Gusto - Do you do any actual work? Or do you just sit around posting on Comic Book Movies web sites? ;)
VISIONaryNPa - 10/31/2013, 11:46 AM
Whose to say Ultron won't turn into a Humaniod? Seriously Female Ultron is the best example..

InfiniteMonkey - 10/31/2013, 11:48 AM
@Gusto, Fvcker just sits around and drinks beer and shoots the shite with the lot of the Marvel writers. Oh and drinks more beer and promote. Gotta love that job.
Ocelot - 10/31/2013, 11:49 AM

Marqy - 10/31/2013, 11:58 AM

"No only that but he does have some sort of Russian Super Soldier Serum, so he probably ages a lot like Cap "


I read that it was the cryostatis down times that allowed him to still be young and alive in the 21st century. If they did that, they really wouldn't need to slow his aging since he would only be active for short periods of time.

NorrinTotallyRadd - 10/31/2013, 12:03 PM
Not to get all philomasophical, but can you be resentful if you don't have free will? The ability have your own thoughts kinda means your free to choose, especially the free will to attack the Avengers. Or is he just getting sulk at them the whole time?

knighted - 10/31/2013, 12:04 PM
So there is a anti aging formula and governments only use it to extend the lives of their soldiers and not themselves?
Lizardking310 - 10/31/2013, 12:06 PM
They put winter soldier on in cryogenic sleep and only pulled him out to do a mission then went back to cryo sleep that's how he slowly aged but is around caps age now
Nomis - 10/31/2013, 12:18 PM
@ Pasto - LOL!!!!!!!
BoneSawIsReady - 10/31/2013, 12:24 PM
I wonder then if Bucky was first recovered by Hydra, then captured and ""Reprogrammed" by SHIELD. And has been frozen until Redford's character sends him to eliminate Fury. I hope Cap owns all next year.
VISIONaryNPa - 10/31/2013, 12:27 PM
to challenge them is to court death

"Your work has been a gift to mankind. You have shaped the century, and I need you to do it one more time."

Bucky probably killed many important people (such as JFK) during the century, caused certain events to happen, and probably influenced certain decisions that were taken. What an incredible take on the character! I'm interested in how Cap fits our new world and how governments handle their politics. Please don't be a mindless action film!
Rokyn - 10/31/2013, 1:23 PM
Hell did Bucky even influence certain important wars??!! Did he force certain actions to be taken? 911? Damn I am excited to see how his plot goes.
MercwithMouth - 10/31/2013, 1:26 PM
Screw the Wings and the Blues!

Let's go Jets!

Born and raised Winnipegger here!

And I cannot wait any longer for this movie. Winter Soldier has always been one of my favorite comic book arcs. I wanna see Cap get beat up!
CharlesLord - 10/31/2013, 2:17 PM
Sounds like Ultron is going to have his hatred for humanity
MercwithMouth - 10/31/2013, 2:35 PM
The only Thrashing you'll see old man, is when the Jets tear the feathers off your Wings!
genesis609 - 10/31/2013, 2:57 PM
if winter soldier becomes ultron lol....
RamonSuarez - 10/31/2013, 3:44 PM
@Batmaniac and Rokyn

Don't usually agree with you guys but your interpretation of the trailer is very interesting. I interpreted that line by Pierce about "your work has been a gift I need you to do it one more time" as applying to Captain America. I thought the gift was his super soldier serum/service in WW2 and that Pierce needs Cap to help him defeat a coming menace. But your take on the line applying to Winter Soldier to have many more possibilities.
OrionPax - 10/31/2013, 4:07 PM
Bucky was put into a "cryo sleep" after each mission in the comics
marvel72 - 10/31/2013, 4:23 PM
after thor the dark world i can't wait to see what they've got in store for us next.
eleven59 - 10/31/2013, 5:08 PM
let me get this straight... gusto, pasto to AND beto... what is this.. a skit?
MightyZeus - 10/31/2013, 6:13 PM
Tony Stark will be the poster boy again. Damn. I mean i love Tony but does the film have to have it's focus on him....again.
MightyZeus - 10/31/2013, 6:16 PM
@eleven59, There the three stooges
VISIONaryNPa - 10/31/2013, 6:53 PM
Ultron resents Tony for having Free Will, so he turns JARVIS on Tony, and boom, Vision is born. DAFUQ?
mgeoff88 - 10/31/2013, 8:30 PM
Winter Soldier isn't a LMD. Bucky has been brainwashed by someone to do assignments just like the in the comics.

It sounds like they have Ultron down to a tee.
Rokyn - 10/31/2013, 10:40 PM
@Ramon LOL I'm not just a mindless DC fanboy, we can agree on a lot of shit bro. Anyhow, I seriously thought about that line and I went through some outside sources to get to my hypothesis.
1) Bucky has been used in the comics in a similar fashion through Cyro-Sleep.
2) When Redford finishes his line, the trailer cuts to directly Bucky grabbing a M4 from another soldiers hand and then he blows up Fury's car. Why would the trailer cut like that? Shouldn't it show Cap? Well it did but during the line not after it. I felt that was a decoy for the general audience. (Then again if SHIELD is taking down threats before they occur then maybe this is where Redford asks for Cap's help) It go any way between Cap or Bucky.
3) What we DO know is that the majority of the SHIELD plot is a conspiracy that Cap has to reveal to the world. Who's it against? Fury. SHIELD is trying to get rid of Fury for some reason, we've seen in AOS so far that not everyone in SHIELD are part of the good guys. This is where Redford needs then again his ace in the hole, THE WINTER SOLDIER. The man responsible for affecting the 20th century in many ways from killing potential targets, to conspiracies, and to causing several decisions to be made from a government standpoint. Cap didn't exactly shape it because he lasted for about 2-5 years max as a soldier in WW2. It wasn't exactly Caps work but the scientists work that changed warfare. The fact that SHIELD is making up a conspiracy to get rid of Fury just further shows my example and Cap would never agree to it, Winter Soldier would on the other hand.

Just my two cents...should I write an article about these predictions? Winter Soldier just made a DC fanboy like me check out his character in the comics. Any recommended storylines?
