Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be the first big superhero blockbuster of 2014, getting a jump on the competition with an early April release. As part of promoting their upcoming 2014 movie preview issue, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, Empire Magazine has released four brand new images from the Captain America sequel. The four new photos show Captain America (Chris Evans) unmasked, Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) holding Captain America's shield, Black Widow Scarlett Johansson) in action, and Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) chatting with S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
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.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on April 4, 2014.
