According to a press release from Marvel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has officially commenced principal photography in Los Angeles, with additional shooting locations in Cleveland, OH and Washington DC planned as well. The sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, the Anthony and Joe Russo-directed film picks up in the wake of the events of The Avengers, following Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) as they try to ferret out a mysterious enemy in Washington.
The Winter Soldier boasts an impressive cast of returning favorites, like Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, and some new talent, including Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, UFC dynamo Georges St. Pierre as Batroc the Leaper, and film legend Robert Redford as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior S.H.I.E.L.D. leader. Regardless of his familiarity with the comics, we’re sure Redford will be a Natural.
Now, let’s all feast our eyes on the first of many teases, leaks and Phase II rumors we’re bound to hear about the film between now and April 4, 2014.
