A quick round-up of what's going on with the upcoming Marvel sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier...

For the past few months, production has been ongoing with Marvel's first release of 2014, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. So we figured it was long past time we did a quick round-up of what's going on.

Filming has picked up again this week in Los Angeles, having moved over from Cleveland, where things wrapped up last week. There's about another month to go on the film's initial shoot, before the film is wrapped completely. Scarlett Johansson is on set with Chris Evans in Los Angeles, it's being reported, and her role in the film seems to be a significant one.

Meanwhile, chatting to ScreenDaily, one of the film's co-directors, Joe Russo, has revealed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is "going to be much grittier than any Marvel movie to date". It's little secret that Marvel is keen to mix up genres and styles with its movies, and already, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been described as a political thriller of sorts. We can now add the word "gritty" to that description!

Finally, before the Captain America: The Winter Soldier shoot wrapped up in Cleveland, Robert Redford appeared on set to shoot his role as the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Very dapper he's looking too.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is currently scheduled for release on April 4th 2014 in the UK.
