Casting round-up and production title for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

3 years agoby:
100%

Seems like CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is getting all of its ducks in a row as pre-production is in full swing, gearing up for the March 2013 production start.  Yesterday, we got confirmation that Frank Grillo would be taking on the role of long-running Cap nemesis Crossbones and today we have more casting confirmations.  Scarlett Johansson will be returning as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders will be back as Agent Maria Hill, Samuel L. Jackson will don his leather jacket and eye patch once again as Nick Fury, and, as previously believed, Sebastian Stan is back as Bucky/Winter Soldier.  

What's interesting is this tidbit from Feature Film Casting, which states, "Still to be cast is Steve Rogers' love interest in the film, as well as Sharon Carter/Agent 13 among others."  What this confirms is that not only is Sharon Carter/Agent 13 one of the characters of the film, but that she is NOT the love interest in the film (as she is in the comics).  Or is that a ruse as well?  Perhaps it could explain the varying casting choices of the female lead, as one group may be testing for Carter, while the other is testing for the unnamed "love interest."  Interesting to see how that plays out. 

All of these actors join Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers and Anthony Mackie as Falcon/Sam Wilson.

Additionally, the working production name for the film has been announced and it's "Freezerburn."  The working title for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER was "Frostbite."  It's funny that they announce this as I was under the impression that having a ruse title for the film in production was to discourage crowds and maintain secrecy.  So, come March, if you live in Los Angeles or Cleveland and you see a production crew for "Freezerburn" setting up, get your cameras ready!

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is set to hit theaters on April 4, 2014.

I've enjoyed Sebastien Stan's work in Once Upon A Time...

...didn't connect him to the first Cap movie, but looking forward to seeing him in the sequel.

be careful

I'm not one to usually complain about spoilers, but, the Winter Soldier's true identity being one of the great surprise of the story, in the comics, don't you think it would have been best NOT to reveal it without a SPOILER WARNING ?

Wasn;t...

Josh Holloway and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau vying for a role?

I think the three SHIELD agents are more cameo roles than actual characters. Even Colbie Smulders role in "The Avengers" was practically a cameo, she did do much except show that she is Agent Coulson's replacement in the series. So that really leaves the 5 characters. There should be one more, a mastermind villain that is controlling both Crossbones and Winter Soldier. That could very well be one of the two previously mentioned

I think there will definitely be a bigger villain role to be announced. Crossbones is a henchman of Red Skull, not a mastermind. I'm hoping it might be Baron Zemo, but you never know. Black Widow has the potential for a bigger role, as she is part of the same brainwash program as Bucky/Winter Soldier and his current girlfriend. They have a deeply rooted history. Will they follow that? Who's to say, but casting her is a pretty good indicator. I think Jackson and Smulders will be as

@Paul Shirey
Are you sure Crossbones is not Red Skull's son, instead of henchman ?

Holy crap there a lot of characters in this movie, but I have faith that this won't be a bad thing but a strength to the story. It's safe to say I'm confident in Marvel nowadays. Avengers had a ton of characters and that obviously worked. I thought I read somewhere that Black Widow takes a special interest in Cap, add Sharon Carter AND another love interest? Word.
