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."
