Captain America: The Winter Soldier Debuts A New Poster For Robert Redford
Thanks to its impressive run of crafting quality blockbusters that bring in a huge audience, Marvel Studios has developed a knack for attracting top-tier acting talent, and nowhere is that better illustrated than in the casting of Robert Redford in Joe and Anthony Russo's upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The Hollywood legend doesn't do many major studio films, but he finds himself in a position of power playing S.H.I.E.L.D. higher-up Alexander Pierce in the upcoming sequel, and today that role is being celebrated with a brand new character poster, courtesy of USA Today.
This is actually just the latest one-sheet that we've seen from the film, as Marvel Studios actually released a trio of designs last week showing off Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). You can see them all below.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been steadily earning more and more buzz, and the recent trailer that debuted during the Super Bowl has only helped. According to USA Today, the preview has already been seen more than 10.7 million times on YouTube, making it the hit trailer of the big game (second place being the debut spot for Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction). The Marvel trailer was certainly the one that got me most excited on Sunday, and I've rewatched in many, many times since.
In the new blockbuster, which is based on a script by The First Avenger screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the titular hero finds himself continuing to adjust to the modern world. Taking a job with S.H.I.E.L.D. and working as a field agent alongside Black Widow, Cap believes that he is doing his service to the world and protecting innocent people from real danger, but after making some shocking discoveries he begins to wonder the side he is fighting for are really the good guys. Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, and Hayley Atwell all co-star in the film, which will be in theaters on April 4th. Are you excited yet?
