Last week, Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Sebastian Stan graced the cover of Empire Magazine. Now, images from that issue have gone online, and they give us another close-up of the actors. Of course, the one we really want is the shiny, new, titular Winter Soldier (Stan). As you saw from the cover, Bucky Barnes is back and looking a little worse for wear. I’m not exactly sure why he has Cap’s shield in one of these images, but perhaps it’s a gift that says, “I’m sorry you fell into a cavernous abyss; your bionic arm looks sweet, BTW.”
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
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.
