For those of you (like myself) not attended the D23 Expo, Entertainment Weekly posted a recap of Marvel’s new scene from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Please be aware, the recap contains mild spoilers. For those wishing to remain spoiler free, do not read below:
Hey, Captain America — you just helped beat back an alien menace in The Avengers, where are you going now?
The answer: He’s going to Disneyland.
Standing before a crowd of thousands at the convention center in Anaheim, Calif., Feige asked star Chris Evans, “What did you do just before we started filming?”
He noted that they hadn’t prepared this, so he hoped Evans had the right answer.
Evans winced, and doubled over slightly. “I … don’t have the right answer,” he said.
“I’ll give you a hint,” Feige nudged him. “It’s right across the street!”
“Oh, Disneyland!” Evans shouted. So now you know how a superhero unwinds. (Presumably, he gets unlimited FastPasses.)
The banter kicked off brand new footage from the film, out next April. Feige warned that since the film just finished shooting, the scene would feature a mix of black-and-white rough animation, and a lack of some sound effects.
It begins with a crudely animated quinjet flying through the clouds. Inside, Captain America and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow are strap-hanging, and making awkward conversation.
“Doing anything fun Saturday night?” she asks.
“Well, all the guys from my barbershop quartet are dead, so …” he responds.
As Cap prepares to skydive from the plane, wearing his grayscale stealth uniform, she says bluntly: ”If you asked Kristen out from statistics, she would probably say yes.”
This is a subject for which Cap has no shield. He prepares to dive.
“To shy or too scared?” Black Widow asks.
“Too busy,” he says, plunging from the back of the quinjet.
Frank Grillo, playing the S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Crossbones notes that he fell with no parachute. We then see rough animation of Cap swan diving thousands of feet to make an Olympics-worthy plunge into the ocean beside a cargo ship, loaded with menacing men carrying machine guns.
Cap climbs aboard via the anchor chain, and begins silently taking out the mercenaries, ninja-style, the only sound the clanging of his shield against their craniums.
Once the bad guys are neutralized, Crossbones floats down on a parachute to take out the last one.
“Thanks,” Cap says.
“You seemed pretty helpless without me,” Grillo’s character replies.
Black Widow then lands and picks up right where she intrusively left off: “What about the nurse who lives across the hall from you? She seems nice.”
