Captain America: The Winter Solider (Movie Thread) 04/04/14 - Page 5
Brothers and co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss their upcoming film, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" with the Huffington Post and state that the events of their film are the most important in terms of heading into "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Said Joe Russo, "There's a very strong connection in the narrative between the events of the end of "Avengers" that drive this film -- and there's a very strong hand off to "Avengers 2" at the end of this movie. And Kevin Feige's whole thing is that this is the biggest bridge of all of Phase 2 movies; it really is. It does involve the most amount of Avengers of any of the films in Phase 2, and it has sort of a, you know, there's a very big shift in the universe at the end of this movie."
An interesting development/revelation. In terms of headcount, the film boasts the most number of Avengers team members in Captain America, Falcon and Black Widow. And who knows where the Winter Soldier's loyalties may lie by the time the film's closing credits roll.
Evans: Yeah. Well, that’s what we were all saying. I remember when I first met with the Russo’s. Has anyone played the Captain America video game? I love it, and I don’t like video games. I was like, I love it because I love the way Cap moves. He moves so well. He just beats ass. It’s like, that’s how this guy needs to be moving. This isn’t just a guy who’s given the ability of speed and power. He’s been training. He’s got the frame of mind to absorb this information, so I can only assume with training and his ability, this guy should really be dangerous, and we should show that. It’s not just – take Jason Bourne and make him . . . if Jason Bourne can do it, Cap should be flying through these things. So we’ve had a little bit of fun kind of turning up his power, turning up his speed, and so the fights are more grizzly and more impactful, and in my opinion, cooler.

I have steered clear of all trailers since the first one came out; I'm really hoping they get this one right, they have some great material to draw inspiration from, Brubaker wrote solid Winter Soldier storylines. If this matches the quality of the first half of the first film I'll be content.
