Trailer for Captain America Winter Soldier gives us the Cap we missed from The Avengers

Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER - Teaser Poster

I enjoyed the first Captain America movie, so I wasn’t really looking forward to or lamented, the return of Captain America, but I was bummed he had such a shitty showing in The Avengers. His slow build could be a good thing, down the road, but slow doesn’t always mean careful, but they do seem to be taking their time with his storyline, but enough of this this babbling. I thoroughly enjoyed this new trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier, not because I could name off all the new characters being introduced to this franchise cause I can’t, but because it just looked good and seemingly better than the THOR sequel and I am sick of Samuel L. always being the good guy. I think he does asshole much better.

The film stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johanssen, Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.

The Secret Life of Heroes by illustrator Gregoire Guillemin

These groundbreaking images of heroes doing the mundane came to us via Juxatapose magazine and boy are we ever thankful. Illustrator Gregoire Guillemin drinks from the 1960′s pop artist Roy Lichtenstein cup, in this hilarious group of images of famous super heroes engaged in some not so superhuman behavior. It’s not like comic book illustrators haven’t been trying to break the third wall for years, but it’s always been “the comic book” that made most feel you weren’t really seeing anything they didn’t want you to. What Gregoire Guillemin has done is completely taken them out of their environment, by doing these extreme closeup images, so you don’t see the Batcave or The Invisible Plane, but instead you just see them, chowing on a donut, disrobing, taking a dump or rolling a cigarette. This is classic pulp and a wonderful spin on fan art!

Gregoire Guillemin’s images are available for purchase HERE.
