There are a whole host of superhero movies set to invade movie screens in 2014, but one of our most anticipated has got to be "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the follow-up to 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger" and, if what we're hearing is correct, a pseudo-sequel to 2012's blockbuster team-up movie "The Avengers."

The sequel finds Captain America (Chris Evans) dealing with the bureaucracy surrounding super spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and facing a foe from his frosty past (Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier). Well, today we've got four brand new images from the film (courtesy of Empire) that make us even more jazzed.

The four images feature more or less what you'd expect -- Cap looking stoic and handsome, a still featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury seemingly facing off against his S.H.I.E.L.D. superior Alexander Pierce (played by Robert Redford!), an action shot of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow running (and not just through our dreams), and the Winter Soldier menacingly clutching Cap's signature shield.

Supposedly, the tone of this film is much more in line with conspiracy thrillers from the '70s than your average everyday superhero film (hence Redford's casting) and based on the footage we've seen, this one is going to be some huge-scale fun.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" comes out on April 4, 2014. Does this mean summer official starts right after spring break is over?
