Empire’s Captain America Cover Has Arrived! The Winter Soldier is coming…

empire-feb-2014
You can also check out an alternate cover of the February issue here.

EmpireOnline.com — The February issue of Empire is almost upon us, and we take great pleasure in unveiling this month’s cover movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, leading an action-packed preview of 2014 and kicking off our 25th birthday year.

That’s right, your favourite magazine turns 25 in 2014 – old enough to hire a car abroad and (theoretically) not be asked for ID when buying alcohol. We’re planning a bumper set of celebrations throughout 2014, beginning with this issue’s preview of the 25 must-see movies of next year. Marvel’s Captain America sequel is one of them, but you’ll have to pick up the issue (or keep your eyes on the site over the next few days) to discover the rest.

As you can tell from this cover, the new adventures of the First Avenger will be a bit darker and more morally confused than its Stars-and-Stripes waving predecessor. This time, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), aka Cap, discovers something rotten in the state of SHIELD, and also has to deal with the reappearance of his old friend Bucky (Sebastian Stan), now brainwashed and cybernetically modified and transformed into the titular Winter Soldier.

The new issue of Empire will be on sale on December 31 in both physical and digital formats. For the full film of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, however, you’ll have to wait until March 28, 2014. Yes, we asked if they could possibly just give it to us for Christmas instead, but apparently that wasn’t possible for some reason.

Sebastian Talks Flashbacks and Fights in Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Sebastian Reveals the Secret Backstory Hidden in His Hair

Read Sebastian’s interview in its entirety over at io9.com

io9: So Bucky is like Captain America. They’re both from another time, they’re both lost in this new world. How does Bucky deal with that in this new movie?

Sebastian Stan: He doesn’t deal with it. [Laughs]. He just doesn’t deal with it.

I’m curious about the evolution of the hair.

Oh yes! Please ask me, because I’m sure people have opinions.

We’ve been drawing pictures of long hair on you for quite some time on io9. We didn’t know how it would look! How did you guys come to this conclusion of this hairstyle? Was it totally out of your hands?

You know what the funny thing is, we had the artist – Ed Brubaker — on set. I remember I was talking to him and I asked “why the long hair?” And he said, “the thing is we have long hair when you’re drawing comic books, [because it] things look more epic.” This was so funny to me because he was basically also explaining why superheroes have capes. The reason they have capes is because you can tell in a comic book that they’re flying. Or that there’s wind. So I said, “alright, so you’re telling me he has long hair because you wanted it for stylistic purposes.” It makes sense!

In the storyline basically Bucky sort of snapped a little bit. He went on a mission and he went missing for about a month, or so, in New York and they [the Russians] couldn’t find him. So he kind of walked around like a homeless person for a while. He was trying to figure out what he was doing and where he was. And during that process there was no one there giving him a haircut.

But in terms of the movie, I don’t care. You can’t approach something with “oh my god, how am I going to look with long hair,” you just do. I’m playing this part, this guy’s got long hair, I gotta have long hair. What are you gonna do. ?

Well I like it. I think it works. So what is modern-day Bucky (or Winter Soldier’s) fighting-style? He was trained to fight in World War II and then picked up by the Russians. Is there a combination of Russian kickboxing or something?

It’s actually kind of scrappy. The idea was this is the kind of guy who can kill you with a straw. He’s precise, he’s very specific with what he does. But the idea is that it’s messy. He’ll use knives… knives were always a big part of the character. There is a lot of knife work in the movie for sure. And overall brutality. He’ll kill you with whatever is closest.

Sebastian Talks Captain America: The Winter Soldier with MovieWeb

Check out Sebastian’s interview in full over at MOVIEWEB.COM

It’s a testament to you as an actor, even on TV, you play these popular, memorable recurring characters. And here, we see people in the Marvel Universe get recast all the time. It had to be cool to know that you were wanted back…

Sebastian Stan: I’m so grateful, man! Before I even started on the first movie, and I listened to them describe this character, and where he goes, I wondered…God, I wish I would have know this was how it was all going to play out. But I’m glad…The whole way that all happened…Finding out, coming back around, getting another chance to further develop this character a second time, who I have become so obsessed with…I am so protective of this character, because to some extent, you live with them for quite a while. Its usually only on TV that you really live with a character, and get to add to it, and find new things…This was such a great character, and such a great opportunity to show off such a great side…Here’s what could have happened to this guy. Added onto what did happen to him in the comic books. Its like, it shows you what could happen if one emotion becomes the authority of how a person leads his life. It’s like me saying, everyone gets angry. But if you stay angry all the time, and you prey on that one emotion, and you keep flexing it like a muscle, and that’s the only muscle, you have to wonder what would happen. So, I don’t know if I’m making any sense…

No, you’re making perfect sense. It’s like that scene in the first movie, where they told Steve Rogers that the serum amplifies who you are as a person. And he was such a strong, good hearted, kind man that it allowed him to become Captain America. So, that would be amplified differently in Bucky Barnes, who is holding onto some anger…

Sebastian Stan: For sure. You also have to remember that scene in the first movie, where Steve rescues Bucky. You have to wonder, what is he rescuing him from? For all the fans that thought, ‘Well, god, I thought the guy died when he went off the cliff…’ Those people need to go back and re-watch that scene. Maybe there is a nice little clue on the wall somewhere that says this was going to happen. They are very smart. Marvel amazes me how they plan this out. It’s incredible. I find myself being constantly surprised.

Looking back at the first movie, Bucky and Steve have this neat little arc as friends. Bucky is the better soldier. He’s stronger, faster. But then Steve becomes Captain America. I don’t know if you would call it jealousy…But you do see that, wow, this guy is having a bit of a problem. But here, we see the Winter Soldier is now really giving Captain America a run for his money. Does that play into your relationship with Chris Evans?

Sebastian Stan: Chris Evans is so awesome. He is like one of my brothers. Literally, we show up, we laugh, we talk about our weekends, and then we get back to work. I give it my all, he gives it his all, and I feel so comfortable with him in terms of…You’re doing extremely physical and sometimes dangerous stuff. You’re trying to make something very realistic. So you want to have someone you are doing it with that you trust. You want to get along with the guy. You want to say, “We got each other. We’re gong to go for it this time.” The whole thing is a dance. It’s so technical. You’re trying to be improvisational in a controlled way. We’re really great friends.

Sebastian Stan More Than Meets the Eye in Broadway’s Picnic

You can check out Seb’s entire interview over at PLAYBILL.COM

How did Picnic come about for you? Were you actively looking for more theatre work?
Sebastian Stan:
I actually met up with our director Sam Gold about two years ago — in L.A. of all places. I’d heard such great things about him. He didn’t know at the time when or if it was going to happen, but we started discussing Picnic. Then I read the play and thought it was great. I love the ’50s and grew up loving works from that time period and from those great playwrights. Fortunately, the timing worked out, and we were able to do the play together two years later.

So you were already buffing up to reprise your role as Bucky Barnes in the “Captain America: The First Avenger” sequel, “Captain America: Winter Soldier.”
SS:
Yeah. And it’s funny, because everyone’s had very different reactions to my physique. Somebody who came to see the show said to me, “Don’t you think you’re in too good of shape for this? No one looked like that in the 1950s.” But I watched a lot of movies from that time period. Because Paul Newman had been in the original Broadway production of Picnic, I watched a lot of Paul Newman movies like “Cool Hand Luke” and “The Long, Hot Summer,” where he played a homeless drifter, and he was in incredible shape — ripped, tan, and glistening. So I didn’t find myself to be out of line when I was physically preparing for the role.

You were only 12 when you moved to the United States. That’s not exactly the most ideal age to be different.
SS:
Yeah, it was an interesting time. I really didn’t want to be different at all. I lost my accent — although it still comes out every once in a while — but I just wanted to be like everyone else. It took me a few years to finally realize that I should actually embrace where I come from, because it’s something that sets me apart. In my head, that’s sort of what Hal’s trying to do too. Hal’s desperately trying to be someone he thinks he should be and someone he thinks will fit it. Finally, he comes across someone, Madge, who basically says, “Listen, dude, calm down and stop trying to be someone else, because I like you for you.” The peace of mind he discovers at the end of the play is that it’s OK to own who you are.
