A new new poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been released today in hopes of getting people excited for the trailer premiere on Thursday. Set to star Chris Evans as the titular hero, the film is penciled in for an April 4th, 2014 release date, so expect to see a heavy promotional campaign over the next few months. This is just the beginning folks.
Though it doesn’t give us a whole lot to go off of, the poster features Cap standing on a S.H.I.E.L.D. plane getting ready to jump over Washington D.C. Like I said, it’s not much but considering that it’s just the first in a long line of marketing material, I’m happy with it.
To be honest, I actually enjoyed Captain America: The First Avenger the least out of Marvel’s Phase One films. That’s not to say it was a bad movie, not at all. I just thought that the studio’s other offerings were more entertaining and enjoyable.
That being said, I am certainly looking forward to this sequel and am eager to see how Marvel continues to tie their universe together.
