Cap and Falcon featured in these fresh Captain America: The Winter Soldier stills


We’re less than four months away from the highly anticipated Captain America sequel hitting theaters. Today, Hero Complex posted their on set report on the sequel along with some newly released stills from the film.


Hero Complex caught up with Chris Evans as the star talked about the film. “For Steve, it’s about what is right,” Evans said about his character. “He’s relatively acclimated to the modern day — it’s not tech shock anymore, he’s not just like, ‘What’s a cellphone?’ It’s more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that’s the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It’s pretty crazy how relevant it is right now.”


In speaking about Falcon, Evans said, “Meeting [Anthony] Mackie’s character, he used to serve, now he works at the VA counseling guys who come home with PTSD — they connect on that level,” Evans continues. “I think they’re both wounded warriors who don’t bleed on other people. Cap has no one to bleed on. I think Mackie knows how to handle people like that. … Sometimes when things are bad, trusting a stranger is the way to go.”


Evans also said that though he felt very invited to contribute ideas to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he admits that the workload was more demanding than the last time he handled the shield in The Avengers“Avengers was so great,” he reminisced with a grin. “If you’re not in a big fight sequence, guess what? You got two weeks off.”


Hero Complex also caught up with Marvel Studios’ head honcho, Kevin Feige. “We loved that idea of embracing the conflict that Steve has had in the comics from the moment he thawed out and woke up in the mid-’60s,” Feige said. “Imagine that, going to sleep in the 1940s and waking up and you’ve got the JFK assassination and MLK and RFK and Woodstock and Watergate. Clearly, we’re not doing any of that stuff, but we’re embracing the tone of those comics.”

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4th.
