The first (grainy) photos have surfaced from the set of Anthony and Joe Russo’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, showing Chris Evans as the Sentinel of Liberty in his new costume, and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, with longer hair, and rigged for an aerial stunt. More images can be found at JFX Online.

Opening in 3D on April 4, 2014, The Winter Soldier is based on the Captain America storyline of the same name, which revealed Captain America’s sidekick Bucky Barnes didn’t die as expected during the war. Instead, an amnesiac Bucky got snatched by the Soviets, fitted with a bionic arm and programmed to serve as an assassin known as the Winter Soldier. The secret is revealed in the present day after Barnes attacks the Red Skull and blows up part of Philadelphia. The film opens in 3D on April 4, 2014.

The film also stars Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Toby Jones (Arnim Zola), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Max Hernandez (Agent Jasper Sitwell) and Robert Redford.

    Could Robert Redford be playing the new Red Skull in Winter Soldier? It could be that, like in the comics, the Skull placed his mind in the body of a clone of Steve Rogers.

    hey, you know what? that makes sense…great idea

  • humandivine

    i like the new costume. it makes sense, in the cinematic world where we get a mix of ultimate universe and 616.

    although scarlett (as widow) with straight hair is a little off.

  • humandivine

    it was confirmed he’s shield.

  • LightningBug

    I like that cap has an alternative costume riffing on the “super soldier” look from a couple of years ago that nuNick Fury is now wearing in the comics. Maybe steve is saving the flag suit for more public missions, and using this new suit for quieter SHIELD stuff.

  • Keith Clardy

    He may have been confirmed as the head of S.H.I.E.L.D., but that doesn’t mean it can’t be revealed that he’s also something else at some point in the movie itself. I think that would be a great twist!

  • Michael Sacal

    Exactly, like when he assumed the id of John Smith in the Stern/Byrne run.

  • fearitself

    So we went from the cheesy, spandex Avengers look to the one that screams Captain America as much as a microwave. Why would he wear the the helmet if he’s just using this suit S.H.I.E.L.D stuff. He didn’t in the comics when he wore this outfit.

  • Doctorossi

    Gee, I don’t know… maybe so he doesn’t get shot in the head?

  • batGRRRl4ever

    These are movies, not comics. THIS Cap’s history spans only two films, his first and the Avengers. The first film showed the ‘flashy’ costume meant for public events, and the much more practical battle fatigue version meant for actual combat.

    Cue to the current day and the Avengers film merely showed an updated version of the flashy costume (which people in the here and now assumed wrongly was the “real” uniform when they first had it made for Steve), and now in the Cap sequel we will get to see the updated version of the actual battle fatigue suit he wore in WWII.

  • humandivine

    seriously? ugh…

  • Nooneknows

    Steve wore a suit like that during the Heroic age especially in secret avengers before nick fury wore the suit.

  • Eric Curto

    Wait is Red Skull in the film or do we just hear about it. Hugo Weaving has said he doesn’t wanna be in anymore comic book films, but I would love to see him return

  • Dick Grayson

    There has (to this date) no confirmation of having Hugo Weaving reprise his role as the Red Skull. It would be a shame if he wasn’t involved considering he played a big role in the storyline that this movie is based off of.

  • batGRRRl4ever

    Red Skull will probably be saved for the final third film, unless Redford is REALLY willing to go out of his acting comfort zone and be willing to undergo the prosthetic make-up required for a shocking third act for the second film.

  • takarickyraw

    That’s what LightningBug said.

  • takarickyraw

    It looks like they straightened ScarJo’s hair some to make her look more like the classic comic book Black Widow. Nice move.

    Also, now that they’ve incorporated the Steve Rogers Super Soldier look in the Captain America movie costume, it makes the comic look outdated again, since they’ve just caught up to the costume that was worn in the first Captain America movie. That’s why chasing movie trends is a waste of time.

  • Happily LS

    I really doubt it’s a “new costume”. Since this movie splits between the present and the past, I’d bet it’s being used to differentiate between those two times so that it doesn’t get confusing to the audience. Not to burst anyone’s bubble =p But I would bet $10 right now that that’s the real reason.

  • XSpectreGreyX

    I like Cap’s costume, bu Widow’s looks off. The hair is a little too straight and long. Just too plain overall.

  • batGRRRl4ever

    A little Fawcett flip would have worked wonders.

  • Too Bad

    I was looking forward to a follow up film, but now that I hear that the commie Redford is in it, I guess I’ll pass.

  • Jezzer

    It wouldn’t take THAT much makeup. Redford’s penchant for tanning didn’t do him any favors.

  • XSpectreGreyX

    Doubtful. The film is focused on The Winter Soldier (what with it being referenced in the title), so it’s doubtful that it is based in the past. The first film didn’t have much room for Cap to do anything big that wasn’t shown. Plus, they are easily distinguishable. The WW2 era has a predominantly brown and grey colour palette.
    It just makes sense that he’d just have a new costume.
    Also, look at the cast. All the characters are based in modern times.
    Way are you basing your assumption on?

  • Alvaro De Cossio

    That sounds like the most logical thing. I’m guessing Rogers, after Avengers, is inducted into SHIELD chain of command, and that’s his SHIELD uniform. I doubt his more superhero-ish Avengers suit will be completely discarded, though. Having several looks to a character makes for visual variety.
