Dang. Check out Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in this new round of character posters for the Russo brothers’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” The franchise has already gotten the go-ahead for a third movie, with the brothers expected back to helm it. You can read that full story here if you’re so inclined.
Until then, take a look at Chris Evans as the good Captain, Samuel L. Jackson as the good eyepatch guy, and ScarJo as the Black Widow, who apparently can float in the air in this go-round. Either that, or the boys who whipped up these posters are trying to tell us something.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka 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.
Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, and Samuel L. Jackson.
