With the holiday movie season winding down, we’re heading into a couple of relatively quiet months with regards to big studio releases. However, we don’t have to wait long for 2014’s first superhero movie, as Marvel’s sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens next April. The Anthony Russo and Joe Russo-directed film is the focus of the latest issue of Empire Magazine, and this month’s cover features a new look at The Winter Soldier’s three leads: Chris Evans’ Cap, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, and Sebastian Stan’s titular villain The Winter Soldier.
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.
