CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Chris Evans spoke with HitFix about the cut “Man out of Time” scene from “The Avengers” and why it’s more appropriate for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
“It was a good piece of the movie, but I think it didn’t make it because that’s for ‘Captain America 2,'” Evans told HitFix. “I think when you cut the whole movie together I think Joss said, ‘That’s a different story. That’s Cap’s story.’ So, I guess it’s nice that it came out that it shows a little bit richer character for Cap, but by the same token a lot of that stuff that’s for another movie. So, hopefully we can kind of still tell that story in a different way for ‘Cap 2.'”
“I’m playing the Falcon. He’s this guy in Harlem who moved to California and became a drug dealer,” Mackie told Newsday. “His plane crashed, and he was genetically altered, and he can fly, has telepathic powers. He’s the first African-American superhero. It makes me feel all the work I’ve done has been paying off. I have a son, nephews and nieces, and I love the idea that they can dress up as the Falcon on Halloween. They now have someone they can idolize. That’s a huge honor for me.”

MAN OF STEEL
Amy Adams spoke with USA Today about her casting in the role and the reimagining of the character from Margot Kidder’s portrayal in “Superman.”
“This was a new idea, down to the hair color,” Adams told USA Today. “I knew people would want to talk about my hair color. It was going to be a thing. (Director) Zack (Snyder) told me he didn’t hire me to play someone else. He hired me to play Lois Lane. It’s a whole reimagining.”
Adams went on to express her admiration of Margot Kidder’s portrayal of the role. “I grew up really loving (her). I wasn’t trying to be her, but I hope I do enough of a good job to have the same effect on young girls as Lois Lane had on me,” she said. “I really loved seeing a woman represented as a modern woman in a superhero movie, and not even glamorized, really — she was kind of a troublemaker. She wasn’t a typical heroine. I identified with her from a very young age.”
