“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is one of two projects that Marvel will promote to the faithful next week at San Diego’s Comic-Con International. On Tuesday, Marvel revealed a teaser poster for the film, in which Chris Evans will reprise his title role from “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

'Captain America: The Winter Solider'The image suggests that Cap might see some serious battle in the sequel, set for release in the U.S. on April 4, 2014.

The film is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who also wrote the first film.

The movie is shooting in Los Angeles, Cleveland and Washington, D.C., and will feature Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. In addition, Robert Redford has joined the cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader of the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.

In March, Redford said he took the role “because it’s different.”

“I like the idea of stepping into new territory,” Redford added. “I’m excited by it. I also think it’s a good bunch of people who really know what they’re doing.”

Though the 76-year-old Redford has not `appeared in a contemporary superhero/comic-book movie like “Captain America,” he said, “I think these films are really powerful. I think they’re great. This is the kind of film I would have loved to see as a kid.”

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will be paired with “Thor: The Dark World” in Marvel’s panel presentation at the upcoming pop culture expo. Marvel will hold its traditional closing-night slot on Saturday, July 20, in Hall H, Comic-Con’s marquee 6,500 seat venue.

[For the record, July 9, 12:07 p.m.: A previous version of this post said that the shield appeared to be spattered with blood. It’s actually red paint that’s been worn away.]

    It's not blood spattered. The red stripes are worn off the shield.

  2. User says:

    That's not blood on the shield, just where the red paint has come off. Duh.

  3. chrisdeneen says:

    That's not blood on the shield the red paint has been scratched away.

  4. Sigh says:

    I'm sorry but where do you see blood? You do realize that is chipped paint?

  5. Indigo says:

    While I'm terribly excited for this movie and I like the poster, I feel the need to point out that it's not blood on the shield. That's red paint scraped off, probably by serious battle. But otherwise let's give a cheer for Captain America!

    the shield isn't blood-spattered.

    I think it warrants mentioning that the "shield is not blood splattered, but is just chipped paint." I want to make sure that we're all clear on that point. Sorta bummed that Joe Johnston isn't helming the second movie………. :(

    Kinda bummed to see that Samuel L. Jackson, one of the worst actors EVER, still continues to get roles and play the same character over and over and over. I cringe knowing he is in these movies.
