As we reported yesterday, the sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier starts filming next March, but in an interview with MTV you can already tell that Chris Evans is really excited for what the future holds with Steve Rogers. You can watch the video below.
Evans says he thought that this is what the sequel would be from the start. “There were always hints at that,” he said, “The best thing about [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige is he’s a fan. He’s not just a businessman, he’s a rabid comic book fan. Even during the first ‘Captain America,’ well before ‘The Avengers,’ there were whispers of [‘Winter Soldier’] being the sequel. So I’m excited to tackle that.”
He also had nothing but nice things to say about his co-stars Sebastian Stan. “I love Sebastian,” said the actor. “He’s such a great guy.“ And Anthony Mackie (who will be playing the Falcon), “he’s so great,” Evans said. “I’ve known Mackie for a few years now. I’m really happy we got him. We got lucky.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to hit theaters on April 4, 2014.
