Captain America: The Winter Soldier will bring a significant shift to the Marvel movie universe
I thought this little juicy tidbit of information might be something delicious for you guys to chew on.
During an interview with /Film, writers Anthony and Joe Russo dug a little deeper offering up that there was going to be a "significant shift" for the Marvel movie universe within CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. A lot of exciting comic movie news was dropped at Comic Con but what could this possibly be?
Let's dive into the interview for clues:
/Film: Technically speaking, is this a sequel to Captain America or is this a sequel to The Avengers? The title suggests one thing, but the chronology suggests another.
Joe Russo: Itís a little bit of a sequel to both. I mean obviously the character has advanced. Heís been frozen for seventy years. It has narrative elements that tie to the first movie and it has narrative elements that tie directly to The Avengers and also has narrative elements that tie directly to Avengers 2. I think, and Kevin [Feige] has said this, itís as big of a bridge of any of the Phase 2 movies from Avengers to Avengers 2. Thereís a significant shift in the universe at the end of this movie. Like all of the Marvel movies it has elements of all of the other films, this one I think has probably the strongest bond between those goals.
/Film: That suggests that you have a lot of structural Marvel Universe stuff to do while youíre also crafting character-centric action.
JR: The interesting thing about that is that the script was structured so well that itís not really something thatÖ The things that happen in the movie are really germane to the movie and germane to Cap. The big shift in the universe happens because of him. Itís not something where we had to feel like we had to patchwork in all of these other narrative elements, itís really Markus and McFeely wrote an amazing script that really streamlined this concept that Kevin wanted to get out there.
Anthony Russo: And itís very personal to Cap, too. I think thatís the other thing, even though itís a big event that connects it to the rest of the universe, itís very much Capís relationship to that and we enter the whole thing through him. So itís all riding on his shoulders and in terms of his experience at this moment with this movie.
Could this have something to do with Ultron? What about S.H.I.E.L.D.? Does Cap go rogue? What could potential effect the rest of the Marvel universe? I think your guesses are as good as any.
