“When Captain America throws his mighty shield, all those who choose to oppose his shield must yield!”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger doesn’t hit theaters until spring 2014, but today Marvel Studios released the first teaser poster for the film.
Of course since we here at College News don’t have the rights to said image we can’t exactly show you the poster. You can find it in a number of other places, including the Facebook page for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Not much else about Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been revealed besides the majority of its cast list. Returning in the title role is Chris Evans, as well as his The Avengers co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johannson as Nick Fury and The Black Widow, respectively.
Veteran actor Robert Redford will be playing senior SHIELD advisor Alexander Pierce and The Hurt Locker co-star Anthony Mackie will be playing Captain America’s superhero colleague The Falcon.
