Marvel’s Hall H presentation at San Diego’s Comic-Con International definitely brought the house down, what with all of the announcements and footage and Marvel movie cast members in attendance. “Entertainment Tonight” got the chance to speak with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, and Frank Grillo just before they experienced the insanity of Hall H, many for the first time.
“That’s the one thing you like about going into Hall H,” said Hall H veteran Samuel L. Jackson. “They’re already there, they want it. They’re breathing hard before we get in there, and then the fact that we show up is like full lung craziness. It is so awesome. It’s like being a Beatle.”
The rest of the video, which can be seen after the jump, goes into detail about each actor’s experience working on the film, including a few “how I got the job” stories.
“I was itching and scratching to try and get into the Marvel franchise,” said Mackie, who will bring the role of Cap’s partner Falcon to life. “I was pitching them all kinds of ideas and then all of a sudden they said, ’Stop calling us, we’ll call you.’ And six months later they called me and was like, ’Check this out.’ I said, ’done.'”
“I was in New Orleans doing a movie,” said Grillo, who plays the possibly adversarial Brock Rumlow. “They just called and said they want to fly you up to meet Marvel, and I said, ’Come on, you gotta be kidding me.’ And they said, ’No, they want to fly you up to see these brothers [directors Joe and Anthony Russo] about this role.'”
The video is filled with other tidbits about the film, including how it differs from the first movie, whether or not Nick Fury will pop up on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and VanCamp talking a bit more at length about her character, Sharon Carter.
“We’re just sort of, like, planting the seed for my character,” revealed VanCamp. “So I’m not in the film as much and I’m just now meeting some of the people from the film to be honest.” You can check out the entire interview below. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4th, 2014.
