CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Four minutes of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” have hit online, highlighting a SHIELD assault on a freighter commandeered by Georges Batroc.
ComingSoon.net has posted a featurette focused on Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow — though there’s not much new in the way of footage.
CBR has posted four interviews from our “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” set visit, including one with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
“This sort of is a third entry [in the ‘Captain America’ franchise],” Feige said of the movie. “I mean, there’s ‘Cap 1’ with his origin in World War II and only the last two minutes — oh, my God, he’s in the modern day. ‘Avengers’ played a little bit with his feelings of what it’s like to be in the modern day, but he didn’t have a whole lot of time in that film because he’s introduced to the team. He’s got to fight off the alien invasion. So it did feel like this was absolutely the right time to deal with how he can come to terms with a past that is long gone and is seemingly never coming back. Dealing with the shades of gray of the modern era, and certainly of being a part of an organization like S.H.I.E.L.D. And then, just as perhaps he’s finding a niche for himself, his past comes back and lands like a ton of bricks on his head in the form of Winter Soldier.”

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

Collider spoke with “Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim about things to come for the CW series, including the re-appearance of Jessica De Gouw as The Huntress.
“It’s been literally a year, in story time, since we’ve seen her,” Guggenheim told Collider. “One of the things we told Jessica De Gouw, who plays The Huntress, was that we weren’t interested in treading over old territory with Helena. What we pitched her was the idea that basically Helena Bertinelli is gone. The only thing that remains is The Huntress. It’s been a year of her literally scouring the world to find her father, who was on the run at the end of Episode 17 of last season. We really wanted to show that wear and tear on her. We even aged up her costume a little bit, so you really get the sense that she has been traveling the world and literally has just spent a year killing people to try to get at her dad, and it’s done quite a number on her soul. We get to explore all that, in a really fun episode that also deals with Laurel Lance, in a very big way. One of the things we wanted to do with the episode was give Laurel her groove back, as it were. We have obviously taken Laurel down a very dark path, this year. As we started to see at the end of last week’s episode, she’s going to start turning the corner. And this episode with The Huntress is a very big move in that direction.”

300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE
Eva Green, Lena Heady, Callan Mulvey and Jack O’Connell discussed “300: Rise of an Empire” during a recent press event, and highlighted what makes the sequel to “300” different from its predecessor and how it explores the ambiguities of war.
“I think you have to be as realistic as you can, but at the same time, you need to give a performance, and it needs to be heightened because there are such high stakes,” Mulvey said. “Although the battles and all of the physical elements of the film which you have to do as an actor certainly help create that, I think you just be as real with that as you can and make it high-stakes. And also, if you keep that real, everything around you, because we were in a green room on a soundstage with a bit of dirt and there’s green walls around you, and you have to trust in the amazingly talented crew and postproduction people to create that world, and do a lot of the work for you.”
