It has been ten years now since the first Fantastic Four hit the screens, and who would have thought that young actor Chris Evans would become a comic-superhero icon!?! He has now become Mr. Captain America himself, who made his way alone in blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger, back in 2011, which later joined the 3rd All Time US Box-Office smasher Marvel’s The Avengers! Evans is back in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as he struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and battles a new threat from old history, the Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier.
Joining forces with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America battles to expose an ever-widening world conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins who are sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon (Anthony Mackie). It is said that unlike other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Winter Soldier minimizes the use of visual effects as much as possible. Anthony Mackie elaborated: “they wanted to stay with live action, which is a dying art form… If they could build it, they built it. If we could do it, we did it. They wanted to do as little CGI as possible. That’s why the movie looks so great.”

Robert Redford wanted to do the film because his grandchildren are fans of Marvel films and he wanted them to see him in one.
