The film, which is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, will be a sequel to the events that occurred in both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. The title suggests that the movie will be bringing one of Captain America’s most famous storylines to the big screen, resurrecting Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes (you may remember a fateful incident involving an armed guard, a train, and a long fall from the first Cap movie) as a brainwashed assassin.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to be released April 4th, 2014.
