Following in the footsteps of Marvel’s The Avengers, production on Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier has commenced in Los Angeles, with production also including locations in Cleveland, Ohio, and Washington D.C.
Anthony and Joe Russo (Welcome to Collinwood) are directing the film from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Leading actor Chris Evans will return as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America, alongside Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. In addition, film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick-up where Marvel’s The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
The super-hero action film is expected to release in the U.S. on April 4, 2014.
