Captain America Has A Chat With Robert Redford In New Winter Soldier Stills
December 31st is a day spent reflecting on the year that has just past, and in the world of superhero movies 2013 was a largely a major success. Shane Blackís Iron Man 3 became the fifth highest grossing film of all time, and Alan Taylorís Thor: The Dark World was a fun ride that continued to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Zack Snyderís Man of Steel was a controversial yet intriguing first look at a new version of Superman, and James Mangoldís The Wolverine helped reestablished the mutant heroís reputation. It makes us wonder what the possibilities are for 2014, and things are getting started early with Joe and Anthony Russoís Captain America: The Winter Soldier coming out in April.
A handful of new stills from the upcoming Marvel Studios film found their way online yesterday, but today, thanks to the Tumblr Crazy-Obsessive-Fanboy (via CBM) we have a few more. First up top we have yet another still of Robert Redfordís character, this time having a conversation with Chris Evansí Captain America. In the movie, the Oscar-winning Redford will be playing Alexander Pierce, a senior official at S.H.I.E.L.D., where Cap now works as an agent.
Next up we have yet another image of the titular hero, this time paired with Scarlet Johanssonís Black Widow. This relationship is easily one of my most anticipated aspects of the movie, as Iím excited to see how Capís old world sense of morality pairs up with Black Widow more modern, cynical attitude.
Back to talking about new characters, this next image features Anthony Mackie as Falcon. If youíve seen the trailer (itís at the bottom of this post if you havenít), you know that the backpack that Falcon is wearing actually deploys a set of wings that give the hero the ability to fly. It should be pretty useful tool in crafting some awesome action sequences.
Enough about the good guys Ė letís talk about the more sinister agents in play. Pictured above is Crossbones, who is expected to be one of the main antagonists of the movie along with the eponymous Winter Soldier. Judging from the footage weíve seen, it would appear that Crossbones (real name Brock Rumlow) will be an ally of Capís at the start of the movie Ė but that relationship wonít last long.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which also co-stars Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell and Samuel L. Jackson, will be in theaters on April 4th.
