Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Marvel Entertainment closed out day three of Comic-Con with their highly anticipated 'Marvel Studios: Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Hosted by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige, the panel started out with Tom Hiddleston coming out and going into his Loki character to entertain the crowd, was followed by the cast of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film joining Feige on stage as they debuted footage from the film, and closed out with Joss Whedon coming out to make Marvel's biggest announcement of this year's SDCC: the sequel to last year's phenomenally successful Avengers film will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, meaning the villain will be the powerful android with close ties to the Avengers who's tormented the team for decades.
Between Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Wolverine and its regular 17th and 18th Marvel Minimates waves, it's going to be a busy several months at Art Asylum and Diamond Select Toys. At Comic-Con this week DST is displaying dozens of its upcoming 2" figures from the cinematic and comic book corners of the Marvel U. You can take a look at all of the displayed 'mates from the SDCC floor, after the cut.
Unlike in most Marvel comics where Captain America's indestructible shield survives battles without so much as a scratch barring extraordinary (i.e. involving Wolverine's adamantium claws) circumstances, his movieverse mode of defense is introduced as an unpainted vibranium prototype. Despite getting a very recognizable paint job that survived the Chitauri invasion in The Avengers, judging by a new teaser poster the red, white and blue beacon of defense may get tarnished something fierce on April 4 when Captain America: The Winter Soldier debuts in theaters.
Filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is underway as we speak in beautiful Cleveland, Ohio, and thanks to the Plain Dealer, we now have a look at Cap himself -- or at least a reasonable approximation in the form of a stuntman in full costume. The pictures, taken during the filming of a chase scene, have revealed that Steve Rogers is going to be rocking a new super soldier suit when the movie comes out next year.
