First Look at Winter Soldier on Set of Captain America Sequel
As we’ve seen time and again, it’s not easy to keep a lid on plot details when you’re shooting a film in a major city. From The Avengers‘ invading Chitauri in Cleveland to Thor: The Dark World‘s Dark Elves in London to The Dark Knight Rises‘ climactic scenes in Pittsburgh, photos inevitably leak out in an era when virtually every cellphone is a camera.
Such is the case with Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has already seen leaked shots of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, involved in some kind of standoff. Now add to the list the hotly anticipated first look at (presumably) Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier himself.
Despite a sign that pleads “No Pictures Please!,” GeekTyrant and ComicBookMovie deliver photos snapped in Cleveland of Stan in full costume, looking as if he stepped right out of that earlier concept art. Unfortunately, however, Bucky Barnes’ hairstyle may be one of those elements that doesn’t translate well from page to screen. Here it reads less “Brain-Washed Soviet Assassin” and more “Florida Panhandle Death-Metal Fan.”
Directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier also stars Chris Evans, Toby Jones, Cobie Smulders, Scarlett Johansson, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, Max Hernandez and Robert Redford. It opens April 4, 2014.
