captainamericawintersoldierposterMarvel‘s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is gearing up for release, and the marketing for the film is on the move. Marvel released the first poster for the movie, showing Steve Rogers ready to jump from a plane and into action.

The curious thing about the poster is Captain America’s suit; it doesn’t look like his modern one from The Avengers. In fact, it looks a lot like the one from Captain America: The First Avenger. The helmet looks like it, though the gloves are different. There was a rumor that Rogers would again don the first movie’s costume, and the poster lends credence to that; with some alterations.

I’m happy with the direction of Captain America’s look in the poster — even if we can barely see it — the helmet is a welcome return. It’s arguably a much better look.

The teaser trailer is due this Thursday; so you better expect to see it on here.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters — oh just look at the poster!
