There are two reasons why superheroes tend to change their costumes every time a sequel rolls around: (A) it gives the filmmakers a chance to put their own unique stamp on them, and (B) it means they can release a new action figure. Thanks to video from the set of 'The Avengers 2,' we've already seen what Hawkeye's new outfit looks like and received our first look at the costumes for the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but today brings a look at Captain America's new getup.

Marvel is super busy in the poster department today: we've got not one, but two brand-new posters for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' and both are pretty interesting for different reasons. First up is an art poster Marvel commissioned from Paolo Rivera, featuring the entire cast, and we've also got a look at star Emily VanCamp as Agent 13, who received her very own character poster!
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' took a break from its usual Tuesday airing to bring us 'Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe,' ABC's TV special recounting the tale of the comic movie studio's journey through the first 'Iron Man' to the impending 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and beyond! Want to know what we saw from the future of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy, 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Ant-Man' and the rest of Phase 3?
We're much closer to seeing 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Soldier') than the anticipation might lead you to believe, and you'll finally get to see what many critics are already suggesting is Marvel's best movie to date come its April 4 premiere. To keep you somewhat satiated and to go along with your vast library of trailers, TV spots and behind-the-scenes footage, Marvel released a massive gallery with more than 60 new photos from 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
The mystery has been solved! Not long ago, Marvel Studios set a May 2016 release date for an untitled Marvel movie, which recently became a hot topic as 'Batman vs. Superman' rescheduled to open on the same date. Now, after much speculation, the identity of the mystery Marvel film has been revealed to be 'Captain America 3,' which directors Joe and Anthony Russo are already actively developing.
We were sold on 'Captain America 2' before the new featurette arrived and got us pumped to see Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, in action. Despite being used in the trailers and getting a character poster or two, we had yet to fully understand what purpose he would serve in the film ... until now.
'The Avengers' (and now 'Avengers 2') director Joss Whedon has been involved with many aspects of the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe in making sure all the standalone movies jive with what he has in the works for the major team-ups. For 'Captain America 2,' though it was pretty much assumed, Whedon has been confirmed to have directed one of the post-credits scenes, which should already tell you something ...
Had enough yet of 'Captain America 2'? How about 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'? As both films continue to release clip after clip after trailer, new looks have debuted online in the form of -- you guessed it -- new clips, featuring Robert Redford's turn as mysterious Agent Alexander Pierce and Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborn back from school.
Keeping in mind that we've already seen a hefty clip from the beginning of the film on top of multiple trailers and behind-the-scenes footage, the latest 'Captain America 2' clip shows Steve Roger's first action-packed encounter with the title villain, 'The Winter Soldier.' If the clips keep churning out at this rate, we might already get to see a good chunk of the film before its April 4 release time. Still, this brief scene will satiate fans' thirst for more previews and get your blood pumping in the process.
