Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Marvel have just announced that the Captain America sequel will be officially titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

It has a US release date of the 4th April 2014, with no dates yet for Australia, Canada or the UK.

For those not familiar with this Captain America story arc, The Winter Soldier is a Russian assassin from WWII who is kept in cryogenic stasis when not on missions, hence hasn't aged since the end of the war. His real identity is somewhat more interesting…

The other rumour currently doing the rounds is that of Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) being cast as Falcon in the upcoming movie. Back in 1969, when the Falcon was introduced as one of the world's first black superheroes, he became Cap's closest ally.

Currently Chris Evans is the only confirmed star to sign on.

Keep posted for more details as they emerge.
