If you've been keeping an eye on the set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past week, then you'll know that Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury appears to find himself on the wrong side of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division in the upcoming Marvel sequel, and a new batch of images have arrived online via The Daily Mail, which show a bloodied and bruised (former?) S.H.I.E.L.D. director:
This isn't the first time we've seen trouble within S.H.I.E.L.D., with a batch of set photos last month showing Chris Evans' Steve Rogers and Scarlet Johansson's Black Widow confronting S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) - check them out here.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is currently filming in Cleveland under directors Anthony and Joe Russo (Community). Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier), Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter) and Toby Jones »

For one night only, two of the world’s most celebrated songwriters and composers will take to the stage for “Richard M. Sherman and Alan Menken: The Disney Songbook.” The concert will take place at the D23 Expo 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center in the D23 Expo Arena on Saturday, August 10.
Together Sherman and Menken have won a combined 10 Academy Awards for their work with Disney, and have composed music and songs for more than three dozen Disney feature films, over two dozen Disney Park attractions and half a dozen Disney musicals on Broadway.
“I can’t express how excited I am that my esteemed friend Alan Menken and I will be sharing the same bill for the very first time,” said Sherman. “Alan is an incredible talent, and I know we’re both thrilled to be performing for Disney’s most ardent fans—they’re the best and »

The British actor will return as Arnim Zola in the upcoming sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger.
"I was pleased to be brought back," he told Coming Soon. "I thought I might be - because you'd know better than I do - but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won't be disappointed with the way that's been treated in the film."
Anthony and Joe Russo's sequel stars Chris Evans in his third appearance as Steve Rogers/Captain America, while The Avengers stars Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson will also reprise their roles as Black Widow and Nick Fury respectively.
Described as a "political thriller", The Winter Soldier focuses on Rogers in modern-day Washington DC, and sees him team up with Black Widow to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy.

In Captain America: The First Avenger Toby Jones played Arnim Zola, “right hand” man to Hugo Weaving’s Red Skull. Jones is reprising the character for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but how does he return so many years later?
Here’s Jones on Zola in Cap 2:
“All I can say about it is that I was pleased to be brought back. I thought I might be–because you’d know better than I do–but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won’t be disappointed with the way that’s been treated in the film, that’s what I would say.”
Any ideas? I have to admit I’m not too familiar with the comic books, so here’s the lowdown on Zola courtesy of Marvel:
The frail, dwarfish Arnim Zola was born in 1930’s Switzerland where he became the world’s leading biochemist. In his ancestral castle, »

"All I can say about it is that I was pleased to be brought back," Jones told Coming Soon. "I thought I might be--because you'd know better than I do--but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won't be disappointed with the way that's been treated in the film, that's what I would say."
Jones could be referring to the fact that the comic book version of Arnim Zola has always been famously depicted as a headless robot with a hologram of a face projected on its chest. Let that visual sink in. So when Toby Jones says that his scientist character is still alive and kicking from the World War II set days of "Captain America: The First Avenger," it's »

While speaking with ComingSoon.net in anticipation of his recent thriller, Berberian Sound Studio, Toby Jones talked a bit about reprising his Captain America: The First Avenger role, Arnim Zola, in Marvel's upcoming sequel, The Winter Soldier. “All I can say about it is that I was pleased to be brought back,” he said. “I thought I might be--because you'd know better than I do--but Zola finds a way to defeat time and you won't be disappointed with the way that's been treated in the film, that's what I would say.” With that said, it's almost safe to assume Zola will appear not only in flashbacks, but also during the present time (likely) in his comic-accurate android-robotic form. Meanwhile, filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is very much underway now in Cleveland, Ohio. And while on set Monday, NBC News caught up with co-director Anthony Russo as he talked »
Actor Toby Jones has played a lot of interesting parts in his career, but definitely one that got a lot of fans excited was when he appeared as the Red Skull.s right hand man, Arnim Zola, in Captain America: The First Avenger . That was the '40s incarnation of Zola where he was a scientist, but when it was announced Jones would be returning for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier , fans of the Cap villain probably got more excited that we might see him in his more recognizable robotic form. When we spoke with Jones earlier today about his creepy new thriller Berberian Sound Studio , he wouldn.t tell us how big a part he has in the new Cap movie, but he did give us a brief tease that fans of the character should be happy with the way that Zola is brought back. »

When the title of the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger was first revealed back at Sdcc '12, fans were ecstatic and all eyes turned to comic book writer Ed Brubaker. He's the individual behind turning lithe and agile sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) into the badass, rogue assassin known as the Winter Solider. However, Brubaker pretty quickly revealed that the announcement was a complete surprise to him. That's somewhat strange, not to say that Brubaker has to work on the script or anything but it's weird that he had absolutely no inkling of what was coming. Besides the title, the next bit of pertinent info came from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who said the film is a "political thriller." But that little bit of info doesn't point anyone towards the 1988 six issue miniseries, Nick Fury vs S.H.I.E.L.D. written by Bob Harras (with »

Whether you like it or not, it sounds like the mobile game "Angry Birds" is getting turned into an animated film. The game's developer, Rovio, announced in a statement that Sony Pictures Entertainment had purchased the distribution rights for a movie that's set to release July 1, 2016.
Rovio Entertainment will develop, produce and finance the film, according to GameSpot, then hand it over to Sony to handle the release. "Every studio in town would love to add 'Angry Birds' to their slate," Sony CEO Michael Lynton and co-chairman Amy Pascal say in a statement, "There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table."
While talking to The Big Issue, Hayley Atwell revealed that San Diego ComicCon attendees will get a chance to find out what happened to her character Peggy Carter, who appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Atwell’s character appears in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well, however Atwell says the appearance is only through flashbacks.
Atwell told The Big Issue:
Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards, so Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically ‘What Peggy Did Next’, which will be shown at Comic-Con [the annual international pop culture convention held in San Diego] and be on the DVD extras of the second film. So as well as doing a bit in the new film, I’ve got a whole new spin-off short film. It has been great to be back in training with the stunt coordinators, kicking some butt again.

In an interview with The Big Issue, "Captain America: The First Avenger" star Hayley Atwell opened up a bit more about her character's role in the sequel, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and her starring turn in the Peggy Carter-centric Marvel One-Shot short film.
Since Atwell's "Winter Soldier" scenes are all flashbacks, the actress was surprised to learn that Robert Redford is among the modern day cast. As The Big Issue found out, Atwell's a bit of a Robert Redford fan.
"Is Robert Redford in it? Really?" she asked. "Well, there you go, that shows how much I know! But now you have told me, and because I love him, I am going to call up the Marvel family, find out when he is filming, then I'll go down to the set to stalk him. That is my privilege! Thanks for the tip."
