2015 may be the year where the box office goes for broke with perhaps far too many big name franchises making a return, but 2014 looks like it just might be one hell of a calm before that storm arrives. Marvel and Disney have two big-name films dropping this year, including debut space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy. Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World led the way in 2013, and it’s up to Captain America to pick up the stars and stripes for 2014.
And what better way to do so than with some new high-res imagery straight from the SHIELD data-banks?
The Winter Soldier picks up directly after the Avengers. New York has been karma-slapped by the recent attempted Chitauri invasion, leading to SHIELD and other various world governments eves-dropping a tad bit more than usual. Steve Rogers is still trying to get to grips with the 21st century. As usual, conspiracies and shenanigans occur, with Rogers finding himself questioning his government and the various assassins sent in to kill him at every turn.
The film is shaping up nicely so far, mixing intrigue with big budget action and a few new comic book character debuts. It’s out April 4 and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández. Anthony Russo and Joe Russo direct.
