"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" goes into production, first image appears

Today, probably my most anticipated of all the Marvel sequels, Captain America: The Winter Soldier went into production. The big budget sequel is currently filming in Los Angeles while it will also film in the towns of Cleveland and Washington DC. The film will center on Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans) transition into the new world. Of all the hero's, Captain America is still with SHIELD and the sequel will find the organization facing a new enemy in presumably, The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). There are also new reports today that Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) will take on a major role in the film. The Winter Soldier also stars Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Hayley Altwell, Toby Jones, Georges St-Pierre and Emily Van Camp.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier excites me for one main reason: it's supposed to be a more grounded military/political thriller than the rest of Marvel's films. That's the reason that I'm so excited for Iron Man 3. In addition, Captain America: The First Avenger was my favorite Marvel film so far and I'm really excited to be back in that world, even though I'm disappointed that not much will be set in World War II. 

Marvel's Phase 2 currently consists of Iron Man 3, which will hit theaters May 3, Thor: The Dark World (November 8, 2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4, 2014), Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1, 2014) and The Avengers 2 (May 1, 2015). All are promising. Here's the first image for The Winter Soldier as well:
