Captain America Kicks Ass, Changes Suit in New Images From ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’

Captain America

From the looks of things, Captain America has definitely thawed out by now and is geared up to defend his beloved country on his own, post –The Avengers. The first images for Captain America: The Winter Soldier have arrived, via USA Today, showing Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) kicking ass and surveying his handiwork, and it also seems that he’s gone through a little makeover since the last time he appeared on screen.

Gone is the red, white, and blue, stars and stripes bodysuit with matching head cap, it’s now replaced by a sleek black and silver incarnation. It’s more stealthy than overtly patriotic – but don’t worry; the shield is still intact. The overhead shot depicts the Captain in the moments after he takes on an elevator full of bad guys and obviously wins. What kind of superhero movie do you think this is?


Directors Anthony and Joe Russo told USA Today that they’re aiming for a 1970’s thriller vibe a la Three Days of the Condor, while still maintaining the big action sequences we’re used to eating up in other Marvel ventures. Robert Redford will be appearing as Alexander Pierce, Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) S.H.I.E.L.D. boss in the World Security Council, which seems fitting now, doesn’t it?

“[The Winter Soldier is] one of the best comic runs in the last 20 years, one of our favorite comic runs of all time, and we really want to do it justice. It was important to us to make sure he just jumped off the page to the screen,” Anthony Russo said.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theaters April 4, 2014.

In childhood, Samantha had a Mary Katherine Gallagher-esque flair for the dramatic, as well as the same penchant for Lifetime original movies. And while she can still quote the entire monologue from A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story, her tastes in film have luckily changed. During an interview, director Tommy Wiseau once called her a “good reporter, but not that intimidating if we’re being honest.” She once lived in Chinatown and told her neighbor Jake to “forget it” so many times that he threatened to stop talking to her.
