Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a great looking sci-fi-esque action movie, that reminds us of the political thrillers of the 70s cold war era, suitably starring Robert Redford (Three Days of the Condor).

Although being a more ‘grounded espionage paranoid thriller’, there are many science fiction elements at play, among others, Arnim Zola stands out as a ‘ghost in the machine’. Not to mention the Helicarriers, Sam Wilson’s/The Falcon’s wingsuit, Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier soviet-tech arm and other near/far future technology.

Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the concept art of the 2014 movie, by several artists and character designers at Marvel Studios, is sublime.
