Marvel Studios is taking full advantage of the remaining days of 2013 by rolling out some teaser images for its upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The images will be available tomorrow, December 31st, in Empire Magazine‘s print issue, but you can catch a peek at them right now, right here.
You’ll notice that Chris Evans makes his return in the titular role, as well as Scarlett Johansson as her Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow from The Avengers. The pictures also reveal a glimpse at the villains, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier and Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce.
Personally, I only liked the first half of Captain America: The First Avenger, so I’m hesitant about the sequel. However, a relic from the past trying to cope with the modern world should be good for a couple laughs. So… I’m betting that I’ll only like the first half of The Winter Soldier too.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier – Synopsis:
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier finds Steve Rogers, aka, Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
