Captain America The Winter Soldier Cast!

While the clock is winding down and Iron Man 3 will kick off Marvel's phase two concerning cinema, the Captain America franchise has finally confirmed it's cast. Here's the Captain America The Winter Soldier cast and a little of what to expect.

Chris Evans Captain America
Of course Chris Evans will return and reprise his role as Steve Rogers and Captain America. According to sources at Marvel, it seems that the Captain America sequel will be the film that's most directly related or tied to what happened during the Avengers movie. Once you see more of who is going to be in the film, you'll understand more of what I mean.

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
It seems that Captain America will be more directly involved with S.H.E.I.L.D than the other Avengers members like Thor and Iron Man. That's pretty given and makes quite a bit of sense. So it seems that Samuel L. Jackson will once again put on his Nick Fury gear and bite his tongue to keep from cursing for the Captain America sequel.

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow Natasha Romanov
Many thought that the lovely Scarlett Johansson was going to be in Iron Man 3 as the Black Widow again. Actually, when it was announced that she wasn't called back for Iron Man 3, a lot of heads begun-a-scratchin' as to why not. Well, here's the reason why not. The lovely Scarlett Johansson will dye her red, put on that uncomfortable but sexy outfit, and start kicking some butt for S.H.E.I.L.D as the Black Widow in Captain America The Winter Soldier. 

Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill
Just to make sure that Captain America The WInter Soldier isn't too much of a meat market, it seems that Agent Maria Hill, as well as the lovely Cobie Smulders, will be in the Cap sequel, confirming S.H.E.I.L.D's alignment and influence with good ole Captain America. Thank, God, too! At least there won't be just one sexy female kicking some butt in this film.

Anthony Mackie as The Falcon
The fact that the very first African American superhero is finally getting his due excites me, but the fact that The Falcon is such a cool character and an integral character in the Cap comics really makes sense to have him appear in a Cap film. Wondering in what comic did The Falcon make his debut? Click the link to find out the first appearance of The Falcon. 

I'm not too sure about Anthony Mackie playing The Falcon, however. The actor doesn't look like the character in the least bit. Besides he's always playing douche bags like in Million Dollar Baby and 8 Mile.

However, it has been reported that The Falcon will fly in the movie. Actually Mackie said that the character in the comics is what you'll see on film as well as, "I will have wings. I will be able to fly. I will be a superhero and fight people, namely The Winter Soldier."

Awesome! I hope his costume is as close to the comics as possible. 

Sebastian Stan and Winter Soldier
Speaking of The Winter Soldier. Oh, I'm sorry, did you think that Bucky was dead? Oh, oops, did you not know that The Winter Soldier is James "Bucky" Barnes? If you think that's a spoiler, you really need to read up on the comics. Yes, Sebastian Stan will return, but not as Cap's partner Bucky. He will don The Winter Soldier costume and go toe-to-toe with Cap, The Falcon, and S.H.E.I.L.D as the movie's main villain.

This one came out of left field, and I'm still not sure why Crossbones found his way into Captain America The Winter Soldier. Perhaps, it's because the Marvel villain is often a henchman for The Red Skull. Hmmm...could that mean that The Red Skull will possibly find his way back into the fold after being sent to God knows where in Captain America The First Avenger? Possibly, since there probably will be a phase III in Marvel's cinematic journey. Frank Grillo has been cast as this badass super villain.

Toby Jones and Arnim Zola images
Another henchman of The Red Skull will be back in the sequel. Toby Jones, who plays the character Arnim Zola, will be using his mastery of biochemistry to cause chaos for the forces of evil once again, but the question is for who? Will it still be for The Red Skull? More importantly, will they finally get Toby Jones in that ridiculous costume that the comic character wears or no?

So there you have it, folks - The Captain America The Winter Soldier cast. Although The Winter Soldier is the main baddie in this film, I'm predicting that this Captain America sequel will be setting up for The Red Skull's triumphant return, and yes I did just riff on Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
