iyrhujMarvel has released the first teaser poster for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is said to be more of a sequel to The Avengers itself than Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World, have been. The Marvel sequel is reportedly introducing The Falcon and Agent 13 into their Cinematic World, and features Captain America and the Black Widow teaming up to confront The Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan in the first Captain America film.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, and Samuel L Jackson. It is due out on April 4th, 2014.
