‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Exclusive: Honoring Source Material Was Always The Goal

by Brett White

Captain America: The Winter Soldier” had a pretty good time in San Diego last weekend, as the first batch of footage from the upcoming Marvel movie blew the roof off of Hall H at Comic-Con International. One key actor—Sebastian Stan—had even more cause for celebration than his co-stars.

Following the events of “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Stan’s Bucky Barnes was left for dead. Of course, Marvel readers knew that to not be the case, but no one knew if a Captain America sequel would dive into the character’s traumatic resurrection story. And then they announced the title of the film—”The Winter Soldier”—and Stan knew he was back in business. Adapting a story that’s both beloved and critically acclaimed seems like a hefty task, but Stan told MTV News’ Josh Horowitz that the sequel’s cast and crew were more than up for the job.

“I’d say literally that—from the people that made the costume and the arm—I mean, they’ve done a phenomenal job,” said Stan. “To the writing of the movie… everyone’s honored the comic books.” You can hear more about how the Winter Soldier’s origin made the transition from the printed page to the silver screen in the interview below.
