Chris Evans talks Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Chris Evans talks about how the extras on The Avengers Blu-ray will tie into Captain America 2...

With the Blu-ray release of The Avengers (sorry, Marvel Avengers Assemble) hitting UK stores this week there has been no shortage of controversy regarding the heavily compromised release those of us on this side of the Atlantic have received. But still, there are some good extras on there including some deleted scenes that will be explored further in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That's according to Chris Evans.

“A lot of that stuff is for Captain America 2. That is his story. It is him trying to, on a personal level, adjust to the fact that everyone he knows is gone and the whole Peggy Carter of it all. There are a lot of things he kind of has to come to terms with", he told Collider.

As is commonplace with Marvel contracts, Evans is locked into a long term deal that will see him appear in a minimum of six films, so a cameo or two is something of an inevitability. He addressed the matter and hinted that we might see him crop up in Thor: The Dark World: “(Chris) Hemsworth and I even talked about that, I would love to do a little thing in Thor 2. It's obviously going to be tricky trying to work out a plot, the reason why I'm there to help him, and why he's not there to help me. But the best thing about Marvel is that the movies were so good and we had such a good time making them.”

Heavily compromised release? Please explain!

I'd like to see some great character moments in the films, rather than team-ups, as long as it didn't take you out of it. Maybe Tony and Bruce working on something in Stark Tower (perhaps something that meant to cure Bruce but malfunctions and turns some janitor or lowly tech into the Leader for a later movie), or Cap and Thor sharing a beer and whilst talking about 21st Century Midgard and it's idiosyncrasies.

The UK release doesn't get the Whedon commentary, is missing one of the documentaries (Assembling the Ultimate Team), the Soundgarden music video and maybe the 'second screen' functionality as well. There's also claims that the film has been edited from the movie version but there's doubt over the accuracy of those claims.

I'd like to see Black Widow in it, given that in-comic, she's had the Russian version of the Super Soldier serum and is as old as he is, so is one of the few people who's been in a similar situation to him.

Surely he is going to do Cap 1-3 and Avengers 1-3 so a cameo is in fact very unlikely?

Dr Sterns was already in 'The Incredible Hulk'. The official MCU tie-in comic 'The Avengers Prelude: Fury's Big Week' shows that following the events of that film Dr Sterns is under S.H.I.E.L.D custody, with Sterns showing further signs of developing into 'The Leader' - a potential future villain...

Just watched it and the "spear scene" has indeed been edited on the UK blu-ray

ah! Norton's Hulk is the one Marvel movie I still haven't been able to catch, so I have no idea how it fits in with the rest.

I'll be waiting for a better release then. Marvel had my money ready to go on the dvd as I thought a billion dollar movie would at least come out in a package that would reward the fans for making it a success. My mistake,

It has to be better than part one. That movie was pretty boring, IMO.

It was good, don't let the detractors get in the way!

The UK DVD Blu Ray release was a disgrace.

Yeah, I really liked it as well. Norton was very good, but I confess I do prefer Ruffalo in Avengers, but that could have lots to do with the writing and, you know, how awesome the film was.

key word: minimum. Cameos are great fun, if done right. The Wolverine cameo in X-Men: First Class was an example.

Say what? I'm not a reader of the comics and this is completely new to me. You'd think that if they were going to go down that path, they would have at least touched on it in Avengers.

I like it. It's also been helped by 'Captain America' providing background history to the Serum and 'The Consultant' One-Shot tying the film into the MCU.

I agree, and love all the connections between films but not sure if they are written into contracts. Would a few minute long cameo count as one of Evans' 6 films...?

They hint at it a bit in the movie: the discussion with Hawkeye about his brainwashing includes a nod to her Red Room conditioning, which Hawkeye helps to break in the comics. She also does a few impossible things, such as grabbing onto those hover bikes and diving off them onto skyscrapers (although it is a comic-book action movie, of course), which are on a par with Captain America's feats.

Given she's (obviously) one of the co-stars of Marvel's current titles "Captain America and Black Widow" and "Winter Soldier" - which is the subtitle of Captain America 2, of course - it's not exactly impossible she might end up in CA2. Well, if it weren't for Scarlett Johansson now being the world's highest paid actress…
