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.

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.

'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.

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.
The highly anticipated 'Captain America 2' (officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'), which, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, is supposed to completely change the public's perception of what a superhero movie is, started screening for press.

With Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy recently announced, it's fair to say fans were a little worried (if only in the back of their minds) that her stake in the Marvel landscape could be lessened for the time being. But rest assured, she's more a part of it than ever before, and a new featurette delving into her Black Widow return in 'Captain America 2' shows she's just as badass.
Marvel dropped an extended 'Captain America 2' trailer, giving us one major look at the next installment and exciting fans to the point of mass hysteria. Well, perhaps it's not as dramatic as that, but this is the most extensive look yet at the sequel, officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
