Kevin Feige Confirms CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Is A Political Thriller

Not much is known about where exactly Captain America's next solo movie will take us. Marvel movie head Kevin Feige was talking about how diverse their films are, and confirmed that The Winter Soldier will be more of a political thriller.

Variety recently caught up with Marvel movie head Kevin Feige to talk a little bit about his schedule, and working to get Phase Two off the ground. He was also asked about the whether or not he thought the superhero movie was just a fad. He said he didn't believe that the genre is a fad, because each one is so different. He then compared the first Captain America movie to the next one, which is about to start shooting. "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," Feige explained.

A number of actors have been confirmed to join Cap in his next solo adventure. Anthony Mackie and Emily VanCamp are the new comers to the Marvel world. They will be joined by vets Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson. Haley Atwell will also be a part of the movie, but will only be a cameo/flashback. The film will start filming sometime in April, and is slated for an April 4, 2014 release date.

I have a feeling the Winter Soldier will be plotting to the President and Shield and Cap are tasked with keeping the President safe and trying to stop Bucky before he goes through with it.

Joe Johnston, a director known for making old-school action films, gets to make an old-school action movie like Captain America.

The Russo brothers, who directed that god-awful comedy You, Me, and Dupree, get to craft a political thriller with The Winter Soldier.

Wait, what?

Called it. Can't wait for this movie.

Here's hoping that Dr. Faustus is involved somehow.

I still don't trust the Russos and I doubt I ever will :)

the winter soldier storyline is fantastic,its just the russo brothers directing that concerns me.

marvel studios prove me wrong.

@CaptainObvious...well Jon Favreau directed only Elf and Zathura...and he brought Iron Man...
Kenneth Branagh wasn't used to direct CBMs but it did a fair work IMO

Then they took someone expert with action movies, but that usually only write movies, and then..the Mandarin popped out...
So, i'm betting a lot on the Russo bros. because if someone that directed a romantic comedy can impress positively marvel with a cap movie idea, then it should be original ;)

Concern with The Russo Bros comes from ignorance. Jus sayin.
capcyclopsftw - 2/22/2013, 9:50 AM
I have complete faith in Marvel and the Russo Bros. just from Community alone, that's a show for geeks made by geeks. Unlike that shit show The Big Bang theory, which is a show written by ass holes that think that's how nerds and geeks are.

People also don't like Cap because he doesn't have Super Super powers, but that's why he's the greatest character. He doesn't need that shit to command a god and tame a beast.

f**KERS BRING IN NOLAN/DC/TDKR/TDK INTO A MARVEL THREAD AGAIN! HOW SUPRISING

capcyclopsftw - 2/22/2013, 10:02 AM
Big Bang Theory is a terrible representation of Nerds. [frick] that show.
capcyclopsftw - 2/22/2013, 10:02 AM
Anybody doubting the Russo Brothers needs to watch Community, and the way they balance a big cast with some of the best writing available.

Also watch Welcome to Collinwood. Another great ensemble movie, just ask Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, and Mr. George Clooney.
CaptainObvious - 2/22/2013, 10:03 AM
@FrankieDedo- Expect Favreau had several good movies under his belt. The Russo brothers only directed You, Me, and Dupree. I take it not many people here have seen that movie.
JohnTom88 - 2/22/2013, 10:04 AM
So film with a good story is a WB comic book film monopoly? Huh, by whose logic is that? From time immemorial film exists to bring good story, and it doesn't start by WB comic book films.

I think it's more like WB is trying to copy Marvel by attempting Justice League movie when it should delay making it for two decades when you have already collected pension money bound to a wheelchair like typical old DC geezers.

LEVITKUTZ

What you said makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

@LEVITIKUZ

Spider-Man 2 and the first two X-Men films already had 'story over action' before any (modern) Batman film.

And I'm someone who likes Nolan more than any Marvel film, but you talk like if The Dark Knight Saga' (or DC) invented a trope which is as old as the genre itself. Lol.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 2/22/2013, 10:06 AM
yeah.... right!!!
IgnurRant - 2/22/2013, 10:13 AM
TFA wasn't a WW2 picture, it was my biggest complaint about the movie. And now you're (Feige) gonna tell me Winter Soldier is a polotical thriller written by two comedy hacks? ok lol
Thegeekygurl - 2/22/2013, 10:17 AM
But does Cap finally lose his virginity? And do we get to see Chris Evans cute butt??

Cap 3 better have Baron Zemo as the main villain
Nomadic1 - 2/22/2013, 10:22 AM
@B&Y That's scary.....disturbing.

Wow, this is like when cosplay goes wrong. Kinda like 'when keepin it real goes wrong'. Damn, miss the Chappelle show.
Juicy321321 - 2/22/2013, 10:27 AM
Yea boi!!!!
Spideyguy94 - 2/22/2013, 10:28 AM
@LEVITIKUZ Considering in Thor and iron man 2 there is about 2-3 action scenes in each movie and they make up about 15-20 mins of them and they are both roughly around 2 hours. So how are they action over story?
Ocelot - 2/22/2013, 10:29 AM
wonder if they will make captain america actually look credible because he looks no stronger than widow or hawkeye, there was only 1 supersoldier in phase 1 and his name was emile blonsky, looked far more impressive than captain america when fighting and taking on the hulk, one on one

GodzillaKart - 2/22/2013, 10:32 AM
Good opportunity to redesign Cap's costume.
RPD - 2/22/2013, 10:34 AM
The last thing the MCU is doing, or needs to be doing, is copying DC...

Levitikuz I think its time to put your tinfoil hat back on.

Ha! You and me both JatevinM, or just not allowed to breed would be even better. Worlds overrun with too many of the wrong kind. Natural selection I say.
DioFoRio - 2/22/2013, 10:51 AM
I like Pole-licktical Thrillers.
JatevinM - 2/22/2013, 10:52 AM
It just gets old coming onto every article and seeing it quickly turned into a DC/Nolan Vs. Marvel flame war. Its like being in a room full of got damn children.
scootaloo - 2/22/2013, 10:55 AM
It'll be shit without Johnston.
Carl - 2/22/2013, 10:58 AM
I think many parents should simply keep their kids off the internet and maybe even think for themselves or do ACTUAL RESEARCH to backup their claims.

Nolan did not create dark comic book movies - The Crow did, his Batman films aren't deep either.
They are pseudo-intellectual, like most of the Nolanites, appearing to be smart until you see them a few times.
BlazinTexan - 2/22/2013, 11:01 AM
If you guys wanna argue. Go argue with someone in the real world so they can donkey punch your balls off for all us sane users!
MrEko - 2/22/2013, 11:04 AM
Political thriller? Huh!!! After hiring the Russo Bros, I thought CA:WS was gonna be more of an action/dark comedy flick. Fingers crossed.

@JatevinM

Word!!!!!
marvel72 - 2/22/2013, 11:09 AM
@ capcyclopsftw

community is alright but its nothing special,i for one want captain america the winter soldier to be awesome but i have my doubts because of the russo brothers.

maybe marvel see something in them i don't,captain america should have a level of seriousness to it.

its not a comedy that the russo's are known for,do you know they directed the shit movie me,you & dupree.

yeah i'm concerned.
AlertTheSus - 2/22/2013, 11:11 AM
Jesus christ can LEVITKUTZ just be [frick]ing banned already...I'm so sick of going on threads and he just starts bitching about it being a copy of something most of the time TDK trilogy...grow up and watch some other movies for [frick] sake dude
xStarLordx - 2/22/2013, 11:12 AM
I can't wait for this,but if I had to put phase 2 in order of which ones i'm most excited for it would be 1.GOTG 2.IM3 3.CA:TWS 4.TTDW
