New Captain America: The Winter Soldier Character Poster Has Falcon Ready To Fly
Back before the Super Bowl, Marvel Studios began rolling out a series of special Captain America: The Winter Soldier character posters. The unveiling launched with the release of designs for Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), but the designs have been slow coming since. We got to see the fourth in the line when Robert Redford's Alexander Pierce took center stage in his own poster earlier this month, but now it's Falcon's turn. As you can see above, Coming Soon has debuted a brand new one-sheet featuring Anthony Mackie in his superhero suit, and it's pretty badass.
In case you missed all of the previous poster designs, you can see them all below.
One thing that I find myself very curious about in the new Captain America movie is the system that Falcon uses to actually fly. Clearly the wings are deployed behind his arms from a pack that he wears on his back, but what are the mechanics from there? Do his wings allow him to actually fly, or is he mostly just gliding? How strong is the propulsion system? How fast can he go without wearing a suit like Iron Man's? Can he move his arms at all while flying, or is he left defenseless? These are all questions I'm excited to learn the answer to.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo (Community, Arrested Development) and scripted by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley, Captainmerica: The Winter Soldier picks up about a year after the events of Joss Whedon's The Avengers and finds the titular hero continuing to find his place in the modern world. Helping to find his purpose in life is regular work for S.H.I.E.L.D., for which he teams up with Black Widow. Things start to fall apart, however, when he begins to discover that the side he's fighting for may not be as right and upstanding as he thinks, and a nightmare from his past comes back to haunt him. In addition to all of the actors mentioned above, the film will also feature Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, and Hayley Atwell.
Who will be the next Captain America character to get their own poster? Stay tuned to find out!
