Some of you may remember my Iron Man Red Carpet Event that I was invited to last April. I kept telling you I had a secret about an amazing experience that I had while I was there. I finally revealed that secret to you last October. Being on the set of Captain America The Winter Soldier while filming was an amazing experience. Marshall really plans everything out in great detail. Today I am excited to tell you about the exclusive interview, I had with the actual owner and creator of Captain America’s SHIELD, Russell Bobbitt. Along with the interview I was given the chance to have my photo taken with the actual SHIELD! I was in a dress that day so I was limited in my crazy photo poses that you are all used to seeing but how do you like my Hollywood wind blown effect LOL?
Exclusive Interview with Russell Bobbitt:
Q: Talk about the shield. How did you come up with the design?
Bobbit: So for this, obviously this is “Captain America 2” so I‘m the first one to establish the look of this thing. In our movie we have four different looks because he goes into different scenarios, different missions. And he applies different material — Marvel materials that help make the shield stealth in different situations. And so we have four different styles. In theory in the Marvel lore, there’s one shield.
And so in this movie we — we have a couple surprises with the shield. And it’ll appear that there are different shields. But it’s only one shield. With that one shield I have to make 50 of them to accommodate all the different ones. I have hard rubber, soft rubber, fiberglass, metal to depending on if there’s an insert on it I use a metal one ‘cause it looks the best. And I’m gonna give you this one because it’s lighter than the heavy, heavy metal one.
The reason we need so many is because we do different sort of s–, you know, if he’s walking around and it’s on his back, I can put a really clean nice heavy one on him. And when we photograph them from behind, it looks shiny and new like metal. Uh, when he takes it off and starts fighting with it, obviously we can’t hit each other with metal shields or the boys won’t be able to play very long.
