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.
