Which Marvel Villain Confirmed To Be Returning For Captain America: The Winter Soldier?


Considering the Captain America sequel hits theaters next year, it’s surprising we haven’t heard more about it. That’s most likely the efforts of the production trying to stay under wraps but what they can’t account for are actors giving interviews in which they spill the beans. Hit the jump to find out which evil-doer is back for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Before now, we’ve only had confirmation of Chris Evans (duh) and Sebastian Stan returning for the sequel. Winter Soldier refers to a storyline from the comics that involves Stan’s character Bucky so that was also a given. Samuel L. Jackson is also likely involved in some way. But which villainous character is making a comeback?

Dr. Arnim Zola. The HYDRA scientist, played by Toby Jones, escaped capture at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger but it seems as if he’ll be back to make more trouble for Cap.

In an interview with HeyUGuys, Jones said he did know whether or not he’d be returning. “It looks like I will be, yeah,” he said.

Zola’s story in the comics leads him to create clones and monsters for Hitler but also a robot body for himself. Whether we’ll see the latter play out or perhaps see Jones in a flashback sequence is not yet known. Though plans for his robotic self were spotted in the first film.

    I don’t know if you guys reported this already, but Scarlett Johansson also confirmed in an interview that she’s in CA2 – http://youtu.be/Gyw1X7TKI-U

    I suspected we’d see Zola come back. Now I gotta go back and look for his robot body. Anyone got a time?

    I’m starting to worry just a little. Other than Avengers 2, this is the movie I’m most looking forward to but between Zola, Nick Fury, Crossbones, the Winter Soldier, the Falcon, Sharon Carter, and now Black Widow, it sounds like they’re juggling way too many characters.

    I’m starting to get bad flashbacks of Spider-Man 3 and Iron Man 2.

    I think they mean his first appearance on screen, when he’s looking though the camera and we see his head on a screen – like his comic book form

    I liked IM2, and don’t understand the hate.

    They tried to do too much stuff. The whole SHIELD and Black Widow plotline (as awesome as Scarlett was) just seemed unnecessary and just there to serve the build-up to Avengers.

    The director even said he didn’t want to return for a third movie because of all the studio meddling, I thought?

    Not sure if we did anything on that either but I was just mentioning the actors in Cap 1 returning for Cap 2, not just Marvel folks from other films.

    I respectfully disagree. The SHIELD stuff and Black Widow plotlines worked quite well, I thought. I know that Farveau did think the studio was meddling, and perhaps they were, but he still managed to make what I felt was a good film and keep it pointed in one direction.

    Very unlike SM3, which went in several directions at once, and had the primary bad guy just hang around for half the movie doing nothing.

    Oh well, to each their own.

    Well, I’m sure that the head on a screen was a lovely touch, but I suspect “plans for a robot body” is a specific reference to the Easter Egg which had his robot body designs lying on a desk. Link and pic here: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/captain_america/news/?a=48984

    Yeah, I don’t see how Tony’s medical problems gets resolved without SHIELD involvement. And his medical problems are the driving his behavior in the story, so I don’t see how you skip it.

    Interesting definition of “confirmed”.
