Aside from some scattered concept art, we haven’t actually seen much of Captain America: The Winter Solider’s new namesake baddie -- until now.
The Phase 2 film is drawing inspiration from one of the greatest Captain America stories in comic lore, and some new leaked set pics look like they’ve managed to nail down a pretty great look for Cap’s pal-turned-nemesis.
Sebastian Stan (aka Bucky Barnes) looks right at home in the masked leather outfit of the brainwashed soldier. With a gun in hand, and another strapped to his side, he looks ready and able to give S.H.I.E.L.D. a very bad day.
Following Cap’s exploits while serving alongside S.H.I.E.L.D., the sequel promises to be the most direct sequel to The Avengers, with a pretty solid political-thriller edge. We’ve been waiting for the First Avenger to deal with something other than being a fish out of water — and it looks like we’ll have some more drama soon.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014. Do you think directors Anthony and Joe Russo can pull it off?
