Captain America The Winter Soldier To Be Like A Seventies Political Thriller

0commentsCaptain America The Winter Soldier

While Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige is describing Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor The Dark World as cosmic, he offered up a very different description for Captain America The Winter Soldier. According to SFX magazine, Feige said, "We hired our directors on Cap because they loved our explanation that we really want to make a '70s political thriller masquerading as a big superhero movie. Just like with the first film – we got Joe Johnston because we said, 'We want to do a '40s World War Two movie masquerading as a big superhero movie.' I love that we're doing a sequel to a film that's a completely different genre than the first film. I think that's fun. And the comics do it all the time." While Feige's inclusion of the word "seventies" might create some confusion, it's most likely that he's just saying that the tone of the movie will be similar to seventies political thrillers like Three Days of the Condor and All The President's Men. However, it's also possible that maybe Captain America: The Winter Soldier might have flashbacks to the seventies, as part of tying Bucky Barnes into the Cold War. Captain America The Winter Soldier is set to be released in movie theaters in the United States on April 4, 2014.
