Chris Evans Spotted On Set Of ‘Captain America' Sequel 'The Winter Soldier'
Chris Evans was caught on camera as he strode around on the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the much-anticipated sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger.
Evans first reprised the role of Captain America in 2012’s The Avengers alongside Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/ Ironman), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johannson (Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/ Hawkeye) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki).
Evans will be seen in the red, white and blue costume and holding his stars and stripes shield on the big screen again soon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. His first Captain America film, which came out in 2011, faired admirably at the box office and in its critical reviews. Replacing director Joe Johnston at the helm are filmmaking brothers Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.
Although Evans will now forever be known as an incarnation of the iconic Captain America, taking on the role dashed his hopes of playing another comic book hero. “I was obsessed with the Iceman,” Evans told W magazine. “I’m attracted to that sociopathic stuff—the idea of no handcuffs on your personality. A thousand times a day I want to stand on my chair, kick over my water glass, and say what’s on my mind. But I don’t." Speaking of Captain America: The First Avenger, he added, “If I hadn’t done the movie, I’d be kicking myself.”
Currently filming Captain America: The Winter Soldier alongside Evans are Avengers stars Johannson, Smulders, Jackson. Emily VanCamp (Agent 13), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Dominic Cooper (Howard Stark) and Robert Redford (Alexander Pierce) are also among the star-studded cast.
A sequel to the blockbuster hit The Avengers is rumored to be in the works as well, returning much of the cast of the original film. Joss Whedon is slated to return to the director’s chair for the second installment of the popular franchise.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to hit theaters April 4, 2014.
