The directors got the whole family to participate in the film!
Filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo, known for making some of the most important movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, have shared some fun facts about the production of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The feature film was responsible for the participation of several members of the Russian family, sons, nephews, brothers and cousins of the directors, who played the role of extras in much of the film.
Thanks to Instagram, the filmmakers have posted videos that show behind-the-scenes scenes from the film at various points that reveal special appearances.
Check out the video posted on Instagram and the translated caption:
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier marked the third time we’ve been able to shoot in Cleveland. It was very different from our first two experiences. We closed a freeway and performed one of our favorite fight sequences while working with Marvel. We were also successful in bringing in friends and special guests of the Russo family.
Currently, Joe and Anthony Russo are preparing to release Cherry, an Apple TV + feature film starring Tom Holland, the interpreter of Spider-Man in the MCU movies. Cherry opens March 12.
