'Captain America 2' will soon hit theaters this April, bringing Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to Washington, D.C. to take on a new shadowy threat. But first, Marvel comics will fill in the blanks on what the Cap has been up to in between the big 'Avengers' battle in NYC and his next run against 'The Winter Soldier.'
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic-book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Empire Magazine released its preview of this year's upcoming superhero movies (sans 'Guardians of the Galaxy'), 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' preps for New Year's Eve, and rumors speak of an expanding 'Fantastic Four' universe.
The next slate of Marvel films will soon be upon us, now that we're about to enter the new year, and the one closest on the horizon is Marvel Studios' 'Captain America 2' (officially titled 'The Winter Soldier). As Empire Magazine drops its latest issue on news stands featuring our patriotic strongman's next standalone mission, new photos from the sequel have hit the web in addition to some new looks at 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'!
Winter is coming ... for Captain America, anyway. As we enter the year filled with such anticipated titles as 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'Godzilla' and 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' Empire Magazine has debuted its latest cover featuring new images from the next installment in Marvel's buzzing superhero universe -- 'Captain America 2.'
If you've seen the 'Captain America 2' trailer (or the 4-minute preview that ran in theaters with 'Thor: The Dark World'), you've already caught a glimpse of Crossbones, the Marvel villain played in the film by Frank Grillo. He starts off as an ally, but as you can see in the elevator beatdown, he eventually turns on Cap. Now, it looks like this isn't the last we'll see of Crossbones, as Grillo hints that Marvel has even bigger plans in store for the mercenary.
The first trailer will be online tomorrow afternoon (UPDATE: check out a :10 second teaser below), but we've got a couple of new 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' photos from the upcoming Marvel film to hold you over until then. Cap has a brand new suit to go along with his brand new movie, and he's still putting down the bad guys, as evidenced by one particularly awesome new still.
