Captain America: The Winter Soldier Concept Art Enthralls and Tease

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Concept Art Enthralls and Tease

April 4th can't come soon enough.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is almost here - April 4th for the US, March 26th on international release - and to tide you over while you wait for the appointed day, the folks behind this little slice of Marvel heaven have released a few slices of concept art. Take a gander, and wonder: will it be as good as we're hoping?

The cold warrior Winter Soldier is on his way, and when he shows up, it's going to get messy. Cap's going to have to decide who the bad guys and the good guys really are, but at least he has a pretty good rule of thumb.

Looking pretty fun so far!

Is there a reason that the rest of the world has been getting these films a week or so earlier than America?

Not that I'm complaining in any way being a UK Cinema goer but I'd be interested to know why.

Is there an S missing from the last word of the title? It doesn't seem to make sense. That's some damned impressive artwork, particularly the hangar picture. I enjoyed the first film immensely, can't wait for this one.

Is there a reason the page needs to reload for every image? Seriously, you are already loading jquery, it really isn't that hard to do a scroller, or something like flowplayer...

correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the world usually get cinema releases way before the US? I swear most movie releases I've cared about in the past 4-5 years all have had 2-4 weeks release dates earlier than the US.

Could be they are "testing the waters" with international groups as focus groups to see if they should advertise the movie a ton or not in the US during release week...I honestly have no idea.

If the page keeps flashing white, that's probably Google Chrome. A recent update interfered with aspects of the site, so someone on the Tech Team applied that as a temporary fix to keep the pages working.

I haven't seen the first one, (but I liked Cap's performance in Avengers) but after seeing the trailer for this? I might actually go see this. Also, can any Marvel comic fan tell more about this Falcon?

Yeah, I am using Chrome, odd. All of your other image scrollers work. Thanks for the info.

I think he was in the Avengers at one point and he is kind of like the aquaman equivalent for birds since he has some weird 'psychic' link with birds which they probably dropped for the movie since Agents of SHIELD has been telling us there is no kind of telepathy in that Universe. It would be interesting if this is his debut leading in to full Avengers membership in the future. Given that Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Vision are confirmed for the Age of Ultron movie it seems like they are going to expand the team beyond those we saw in the first movie using lesser known characters.

No Black Widow concept art? I am disappointed.

I'm all for it. Marvel's been doing VERY well, movie-wise, and Guardians looks like it might be good as well. I've heard about Agents of SHIELD. Is it any good? And if so, think we might get a mini-series or movie based on The Runaways sometime in the future?

Well, it suffers a little from Lost syndrome, dragging out mysteries for longer than necessary to generate hype, but yeah. I'm really enjoying it. It's funny, the action is pretty good, I respect that they're not just baiting fans with big-name comic book characters but actually trying to world-build...

Definitely recommended. Stick with it, though; first episode is great, second is trash, basically an hour of lazy exposition and teasing. There's a bit of a hit-and-miss period for a while, but then it starts to improve dramatically.

...is it just me or is that a Marvel Film Universe variation of Falcon in the second concept art thing? (the one with the exploding Helicarrier). This art though is just absolutely beautiful though...I didn't catch Thor 2 or, Iron Man 3 but, can't wait for Cap's next outing.
