Marvel has released ‘Captain America 2‘ poster in anticipation of the film’s panel and preview at Comic-Con 2013. And though we won’t get to see what ol’ Cap’s been up to until 2014, this poster promises that he’s been pretty busy.
The first ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ poster is here and we’re digging the simplicity. It’s just Cap’s shield on a black background but there’s something different about his shield — it’s battle-worn and faded, indicating that Cap’s been through some pretty tough times while defending his country from harm. That’s re-assuring, no?
‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ follows Cap as he struggles to simultaneously find his place in our modern world and embrace the present, while teaming up with Black Widow to fight a new and mysterious enemy in Washington D.C.
The film stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Toby Jones, and Frank Grillo. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will also be making appearances.
‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ will give us a sneak peek at Comic-Con on Saturday, July 20, and hits theaters on April 4, 2014. Check out the poster in full below.
As Captain America: The Winter Soldier wrapped two weeks of filming Friday on Cleveland’s West Shoreway, onlookers were treated to their first glimpses of the Sentinel of Liberty’s new costume, previously only seen in concept art. The Plain Dealer was, of course, on hand to snag photos.
As you can see, that’s not Chris Evans on the motorcycle, but rather a stunt double. As such, the costume isn’t exactly like the one the star will wear; it’s loose-fitting, and probably not as detailed.
Directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, the film also stars Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Toby Jones (Arnim Zola), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Max Hernandez (Agent Jasper Sitwell) and Robert Redford (Alexander Pierce). Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
Filming is expected to start this week on “Captain America: Winter Soldier.”
Throughout the weekend, crews closed several roads in preparation for production.
Now through May 25:
– Rockwell Avenue is closed between E. 9th Street and West Mall Drive. Suggested alternate route is Superior Avenue.
– E. 6th Street is closed between Superior Avenue and St. Clair. Suggested alternate route is E. 9th Street.
Many additional road closures are slated through June 28 (weather permitting). The biggest closure is the complete blockage of Cleveland’s West Shoreway, which will be blocked in each direction from Lake Avenue to E. 9th Street from May 30 through June 14.
It’s unclear if any of the film’s stars have arrived in town.
While Cleveland doubled as New York City in the “Avengers” when several scenes were shot here in 2011, reports suggest the city will stand in for Washington D.C. this time around.

“Captain America: Winter Soldier” — which is slated for nationwide release on April 4, 2014 — will pick up where “The Avengers” left off as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.
The movie stars Chris Evans reprising his role as the title character, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Robert Redford as Agent Alexander Pierce and Gary Shandling as Senator Stern.

The film will be directed by two Cleveland natives — brothers Anthony and Joe Russo. Their credits include “Welcome to Collinwood,” “Arrested Development” and “Community.”
Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will play a major role in the film, teaming up with Steve Rogers to battle Bucky Barnes, A.K.A. “The Winter’s Soldier,” who is brainwashed and turned from Rogers’ sidekick to an evil assassin.
I hate when that happens!
Don’t stop reading. There’s more big news: As suspected, Hayley Atwell will make an appearance in the film as Peggy Carter. Emily Van Camp will be playing Sharon Carter, Peggy’s niece, in the modern timeline.
Okay, that about brings us up to date on all the new Captain America: The Winter’s Soldier updates. You’ll have to wait until April 4, 2014 to actually see the movie.
