Why The Russos Are The Best Thing to Happen to the MCU Since Joss Whedon
The Daily Mail has posted behind-the-scenes set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier that reveal a better look at Chris Evans as Captain America and Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow, hinting at a possible antagonistic relationship between the duo and S.H.I.E.L.D. The photos follow a low-res first glimpse at Cap and Black Widow in costume earlier this month.
The images show Johansson, Evans and Maximiliano Hernandez, who plays S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jasper Sitwell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, engaged in a discussion and possible physical altercation, with one photo showing Black Widow kicking Agent Sitwell in the stomach. Hernandez was confirmed to have a role in the Captain America sequel when principal photography began for the film. Hernandez previously portrayed Agent Sitwell in Thor and The Avengers, and had a large role in the Marvel One-Shot “Item 47,” which appeared on the Avengers Blu-ray.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the sequel also stars Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Toby Jones (Arnim Zola), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Frank Grillo (Crossbones) and Robert Redford. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
