Agent Coulson might have had a few ideas about Captain America’s suit in The Avengers, but recent Marvel Comics have influenced his suit in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The first batch of set photos from the sequel have just hit the internet, showing Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson in some kind of industrial situation. They’re pretty uneventful.

Does this give us a big hint to what happens in the film? Check out the images and discuss below.. Read More »
