Captain America: The Winter Soldier has started filming and you know what that means…set pictures, both official and unofficial. Last week, SuperheroHype published a bunch of pictures of what appears to be the latter variety.
There are a lot of photos in the set, and most are along the lines of showing us what Samuel L. Jackson wears when he comes to the set and showing us that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has her third hairstyle in as many film appearances. But there is a series of shots that shed further light on what Marvel’s Kevin Feige said about the film in his talk with Entertainment Weekly:
But all is not well between noble Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D colleagues. “With the greatest generation in World War II, there’s a tendency to reflect on that period and say. ‘Things were black and white back then, and now it’s hard to know who the bad guys are,’” Feige says. “We wanted to play on that a little with Cap being uncomfortable with the way S.H.I.E.L.D., and in particular Nick Fury, operates.”
Well, it looks like that discomfort will come to a head, or chest, in Winter Soldier. Check out this picture:
That’s Scarlett Johansson (or her stunt double)delivering a poorly executed front kick (you hit with the ball of the foot, not the heel) to Maximiliano Hernández, who plays S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jasper Stillwell, the agent who has replaced Agent Coulson as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s superhero liaison. Which would lead you to believe that there might be a resignation notice attached to that heel.
The tense situation goes on through out the photo set…with one exception:
See that smirk on Hernández’s face? Maybe it was a blown take. Maybe it was just the way the paparazzi caught the actor delivering his line. But that smirk leads me to believe that this photo set is not what it seems. I don’t know. I just don’t trust that this is a legit shoot is all. Maybe it’s just a red herring.
