Today is unofficial Captain America: The Winter Soldier day, and the goods just keep on coming. This morning, we shared some new images and a preview of Dave’s set visit by way of a Chris Evans on-set interview, and now some individual character posters for the Marvel sequel have landed online. Directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, the follow-up is described as a political thriller and finds Captain America and Black Widow teaming up to face off against an assassin known as “The Winter Soldier.” These character posters feature the film’s three leads, Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L. Jackson, and aside from some disappointing photoshop work on Johansson’s body (which is sadly unsurprising), they’re quite nifty.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
