While Marvelâ€™s Iron Man 3 is set to hit theaters in a couple of months, another one of the studioâ€™s sequels is gearing up to begin production.Â Anthony and Joe Russo are onboard to direct Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and now we have confirmation of another actor from the first film who, in addition toÂ Chris EvansÂ (obviously), will be returning: Toby Jones.Â The actor confirmed that heâ€™ll be reprising his role as Nazi Dar. Arnim Zola, but no details are known regarding his appearance.Â Given that The Winter Soldier takes place in the present day, one assumes Jones will be appearing in flashbacks.
Joining Evans and Jones in the follow-up will be Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Sebastian Stan as the titular Winter Soldier, and Frank Grillo as baddie Crossbones.Â The female lead has yet to be cast, but Hayley Atwell revealed that she wonâ€™t be appearing in the film.Â Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in 3D on April 4, 2014.Â Hit the jump to watch the video interview with Jones.
