Captain America: The Winter Soldier will include several cameos from the world of Iron Man, Thor and the rest of The Avengers gang when it is released in 2014.
Chris Evans has already been angling for his own brief appearance in Thor: The Dark World, where he would seek to assist Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder. “Hemsworth and I even talked about that,” chatted Evans back in September.” I would love to do a little thing in Thor 2. It is obviously going to be tricky trying to work out the plot, the reason why I am not there to help him, and why he is not there to help me. by the best thing about Marvel is that, like I said, the movies were so good and we had such a good time making them.”
But now Variety has revealed that Evans will have his own band of scene-stealing actors to contend with, with Black Widow, Nicky Fury and Maria Hill all set to appear. Of course this was all very predictable after the success of The Avengers just a few months ago as well as the continued achievements of the franchise over the last couple of years.
It has also been confirmed that Frank Grillo will play the movie’s villain Crossbones, who is a deadly assassin and serves as one of Red Skull’s henchmen. This sequel will be directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and will see Chris Evans play the titular character alongside Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan. It will be released in the US on 4 April 2014.
