Like any Marvel Studios sequel, 'Captain America 2' looks to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe in many exciting ways and introduce new characters straight from the pages of the comics. The biggest addition to Steve Rogers' world this time around is Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, and now the winged warrior, played by the wonderful Anthony Mackie, has his own 'Captain America 2' poster.

As Marvel ramps up its marketing for 'Captain America 2,' a new TV spot has hit the airwaves. While it does do well in teasing fans with never-before-seen footage of Chris Evans' upcoming turn as the Cap, it seemingly spoils a major moment from the movie. (Continue reading at your own risk.)
The rumor goes that over the weekend, Amazon UK accidentally printed the tracklisting for the 'Captain America 2' soundtrack, which revealed some major, major spoilers. Realizing their error, the listing was quickly removed from their site, but not before some enterprising fanboys were able to copy and paste the information on to various message boards. But, is any of it true? Did the 'Captain America 2' soundtrack reveal a massive 'Captain America 2'?
Hasbro invited press to its 2014 Entertainment Brand Preview for the American International Toy Fair in New York City this weekend, during which time the brand debuted all its toy lines hitting shelves this coming year.
Among the offerings were 'Transformers 4,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Captain America 2' and the animated 'Star Wars Rebels' TV series. We were on hand to snap a ton of pics, and while we already detailed the coming merchandise and promo art for Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' here are some of the other toys we're excited about.
Marvel recently put 'Captain America 3' into development with 'Captain America 2' directors Joe and Anthony Russo back for more. While, naturally, details on what this next outing might look like are still too early to make out, we can safely assume that Anthony Mackie's Falcon will be a part of it.
When previously asked about the lack of female superhero movies, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has remained diplomatic, yet non-committal. During the press tour for 'Thor 2,' Feige's comments were "I'm not sure when that will be" and "we'll see what happens." Not exactly a ringing endorsement for a female-led Marvel movie. Apparently, things have changed over the past few months and now Feige, when asked specifically about Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, said that they are actively developing her own solo movie.
Like any superhero worth his salt, Captain America has his fair share of unique allies and enemies, and 'Captain America 2' is bringing a whole bunch of them to the big screen for the first time. We've already seen character posters for the Cap, Black Widow and Nick Fury, but the latest one-sheets highlight figures who are making their grand entrances into the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Anthony Mackie's Falcon and Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier.
The only thing crazier than Marvel casting Robert Redford in 'Captain America 2' is seeing the living legend get his own 'Captain America 2' poster. An actor like this gracing a superhero movie with his presence is only further evidence that the upcoming film isn't simply messing around and may live up to the excitement generated by the trailers.
As the Marvel movies continue to grow by leaps and bounds, their short films (or "One-Shots") continue to up their game, as well. The latest One-Shot, titled 'All Hail the King,' was written and directed by 'Iron Man 3' co-writer Drew Pearce and will be available to watch on the home release of 'Thor: The Dark World.' But that's not all: Pearce recently revealed that he has plenty more where that came from.
