Here's your first explosive look at the titular Winter Soldier in the CAPTAIN AMERICA sequel

2 min read

We’ve already taken a look at Captain America – in his shiny new duds – getting physical on set with Black Widow (not like that, you perverts!), but for a guy who has his name in half the movie title, we haven’t really seen much the titular Winter Soldier other than some concept art.

But now thanks to some new set pics, we can see him in the flesh, doing his thing. His thing apparently being ripping doors of cars.

The pics come courtesy of The Cleveland, who were on hand at the film’s West Shoreway set where it’s currently busy on its 11th day of shooting.

And here’s a video (courtesy of CBM) showing off the same action, in motion but without the benefit of a telescopic zoom lens.

You can see that the final design being used for the character almost perfectly mimics the concept art released for the character earlier in the year. I really dig it, as it has some nice touches that references back to the character’s comic book counterpart. What I’m most interested in seeing though, is how they’re going to do the Soldier’s cyborg arm, which has a very distinct metallic look in the comics.

Now up until this point, you may have noticed that I haven’t mentioned the identity of the man under the Winter Soldier mask, and that’s because I’m trying to be respectful of the 3 people who still don’t know after it’s been blasted all across the internet from day 1, not to mention being a major mainstream news story when the character first appeared in comics a few years back.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier defrosts in cinemas on April 4, 2014.

 “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
