With Comic-Con next week, we’re likely to get a good look at some footage from the next instalment of Steve Rodgers’ story in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But before any of that kicks off, Disney is offering up the teaser poster, which simply features his shield.

The Winter Soldier sees Chris Evans’ hero still struggling to embrace his role in the modern world, despite the events of The Avengers. He teams up with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow) to battle a powerful, shadowy enemy in Washington, D.C.

That’ll turn out to be a resurrected Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who has been cybernetically altered to become the assassin who gives the sequel its subtitle.

Along folink sharer the ride are Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and, of course, Samuel L. Jackson.

Joining Cap in Hall H at the Con on July 20 will be Marvel’s other big hero release for the year, Thor: The Dark World. There’s a new image from that movie online as well, featuring Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster and Rene Russo as Queen Frigga looking like she’s spoiling for a fight.

Thor: The Dark World is out on October 30 this year, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier set to follow on April 4, 2014.

 

 

Jeff Bridges Faces Down A Dragon In The Seventh Son Trailer

JEFFJeff Bridges as a wizard. Julianne Moore as a very slinky, thoroughly nasty witch. And Ben Barnes as the hapless apprentice who’s caught in a battle between the two. Seventh Son has all these things and more, and the first trailer for the film is now online.

Russian director Sergey Bodrov (Mongol) is making his English language debut here, with a story very loosely based on the book The Spook’s Apprentice by Joseph Delaney. But even if you’ve read the book there are some major changes in story. Judging by the trailer, expect this to be seriously epic fantasy with some pretty impressive visuals.

Jeff Bridges’ Master Gregory is a “spook”, a wandering wizard who fights off witches and demons preying on townspeople but who is himself an object of scorn and suspicion. Ben Barnes is Tom Ward, the seventh son of a seventh son, born with inate gifts for magic but untrained when Moore’s Mother Malkin escapes her bonds and starts gathering witches for a major showdown. Oh, and these witches are shape-changing and very, very dangerous.

Seventh Son also stars Kit Harrington (Game Of Thrones), Antje Traue (Man Of Steel), Alicia Vikander, Olivia Williams, Djimon Hounsou and Jason Scott Lee. It hits UK screens on October 25.
