As part of our set visit to Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I had a chance to interview directors Joe and Anthony Russo as part of a behind-the-scenes look at the sequel for a small group of lucky reporters. These guys know their stuff. Not just comedy, as fans of their work on Community and Arrested Development surely know, but also the comic book source material, and the genre of political thrillers, which grounds this movie in an incredibly exciting way.
While on set, the Russo brothers talked about how they landed the directing job, being such huge fans of genre, working with this talented cast, balancing character screen time and relationships, modernizing the fighting style, and the all-important Easter eggs. The real stinger here is that something major happens in this film’s third act that will impact the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe! Hit the jump for the interview.
