Last night's latest 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode "End of the Begining" officially kicked the series into high gear with the proper emergence of Deathlok, as well as a few fast-paced reveals, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get even busier with the release of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Last night planted quite a few seeds for the epic Cap sequel, and you can check out the first pieces of its 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' crossover right now!
'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' may have put the titular Winter Soldier in the film's title, but for a while there it seemed that Marvel didn't want to reveal who was playing that character (even if it was obvious to those who know the comic books and those who checked the cast listings). Now that we're approaching the film's release, they're officially letting that cat out of the bag.
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.'
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.
If Marvel decided to stop releasing TV spots and trailers for 'Captain America 2,' we probably wouldn't complain. After all, we've been sold on this movie since the moment it was announced - we just want to know when we can get in line. Regardless, they've gone ahead and unleashed another lengthy TV spot and we've gone ahead and watched it. And it still looks really good.
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.
When 'Thor: The Dark World' hits Blu-ray, DVD and 3D Combo Pack on February 25, Marvelites will be treated to an exclusive 'Captain America 2' preview, which goes behind the scenes of Cap's new venture to Washington, D.C. and will feature brand-new footage. Before you watch the featurette in the comfort of your own home, this highly anticipated look has made its way online.
We don't know about you, but after yesterday's new 'Captain America 2' Super Bowl trailer, this sequel catapulted to the top of our most anticipated films of 2014 list. Like 'Thor 2' and 'Iron Man 3,' the latest adventure of Marvel's patriotic hero looks to take the groundwork established by previous films and take everything to a truly exciting and fresh place.
A new batch of images from the film have made their way online, showcasing the film's large cast of heroes and villains.
UPDATE: Added the full 'Captain America 2' Super Bowl trailer above!
The 'Captain America 2' Super Bowl trailer will air in its entirety during the big game this Sunday, February 2, but before we see it in action, Marvel released a preview of the coming footage and two new posters that unite the cast of 'The Winter Soldier.'
