As we inch closer and closer to the April 4th release date of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we must brace ourselves for the eventual marketing blitzkrieg of PR materials related to the film—toys, tie-ins, TV spots, etc. And, of course, that old standby: the really badly photoshopped/ executed movie poster.
Today brings us three new one-sheets for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and while the one featuring Cap isn’t bad (despite its “gritty” and “brooding” clichés), the poster featuring Black Widow is just all kind of nutty. Oh, and we get another of Sam Jackson-playing-Sam Jackson images, which is always fun for fans of self-parody.
Here’s Cap doing the pensive, modern brooding hero thing:
And Black Widow doing some kind of weird, Christ-like pose (but better: with guns and spandex!) while floating in mid-air:
And finally, Sam Jackson, now forever locked in his “staring at things and looking pissy = cool” mode:
Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, and Frank Grillo, and is set for an April 4th release date.
What do you think of the posters?
