Chris Evans spoke to Hitfix about why that Cap centric deleted scene was cut out of The Avengers. The above image offers a hint:
It was a good piece of the movie, but I think it didn’t make it because that’s for ‘Captain America 2′. I think when you cut the whole movie together I think Joss said, ‘That’s a different story. That’s Cap’s story.’ So, I guess it’s nice that it came out that it shows a little bit richer character for Cap, but by the same token a lot of that stuff that’s for another movie. So, hopefully we can kind of still tell that story in a different way for ‘Cap 2.’
Superhero Hype spoke to Anthony Mackie about his preparations for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and said the following about it: “He told us he’s starting his training soon and that he got his hands on a whole collection of the Captain America and the Falcon comics from the ‘70s, particularly the run written by Steve Englehart that helped define the character.”
Rumored insider Marvel Twitter Account, @RogerWardell, tweeted the following:
Inside News: Marvel is hoping for SHIELD to kickstart the MCU in television form. Much like how Iron Man started the MCU in the first place.
While promoting The Master, Amy Adams is doing a lot of talking about Man of Steel. Superhero Hype has a round up, but here’s one of the better quotes:
This was a new idea, down to the hair color. I knew people would want to talk about my hair color. It was going to be a thing. (Director) Zack (Snyder) told me he didn’t hire me to play someone else. He hired me to play Lois Lane. It’s a whole reimagining.
