Details and concept art for Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

May 3rd, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Thanks to Entertainment weekly and Marvel president Kevin Feige, we’ve got a few more little details about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There’s also a cool new piece of concept art for the movie featuring The Winter Soldier. While talking to EW, Feige talks about why Cap is hanging around with S.H.I.E.L.D. and reveals that he’s uncomfortable there and with Nick Fury:

“We weren’t going back to World War II. Cap cannot travel in time. So while Tony can go home to Malibu and Thor goes up to Asgard and Hulk can sort of ride the rails, Cap was stuck. So Cap does stay with S.H.I.E.L.D. because he has nowhere else to go. But he’s not necessarily comfortable there. And just as he’s given permission to let go of the past and to focus on the modern world, a ghost comes up. With the Greatest Generation in World World II, there’s a tendency to reflect on that period and say, ‘Things were black and white back then, and now it’s hard to know who the bad guys are.’ ‘We wanted to play on that a little with Cap being uncomfortable with the way S.H.I.E.L.D., and in particular Nick Fury, operates.”

Captain America has always been one of my favorite comic book characters, I’ve always loved his man out of time aspect and his dedication to his country. The man stands among gods, billionaires, and a Hulk and holds his own. I love that the movie is almost a Secret Avengers type of team-up, with Cap joining up with Black Widow and The Falcon.

The movie is set for April 4th, 2014!
