If this poster is any indication, Captain America is in for some rough times in his next movie, Captain America: Winter Soldier. The poster is simple enough and features a battered and worn shield with most of the color worn off.For latecomers, Winter Soldier is Cap’s old pal Bucky Barnes. You may remember that Bucky met his demise over a gorge as he fell off a high speed train. Captain America was devastated and even more motivated to thwart Red Skull after that lil mishap. Entertainment Weekly posted this concept art awhile back that shows the Winter Soldier holding or perhaps stopping Cap’s prized possession.
Personally, I’m digging the look of the Winter Soldier. In the comics he worked for the Ruskies as a highly trained assassin so the sniper rifle fits perfectly with that aspect and the goggles give him that air of mystery. Plus he has a metal arm and THAT is completely cool. Personally I don’t think Bucky should hold a grudge. Cap DID try to save him and how was he to know that Bucky could survive a fall like that. After all, Bucky didn’t have any super serum coursing through HIS veins!
Captain America: Winter Soldier opens on April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp and the legendary actor Robert Redford will make his very first comic book movie appearance as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within S.H.I.E.L.D..
Let us know what you think of the poster and your expectations of the movie. Stay tuned, more to come as it becomes available.
