“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” opens Friday, and it’s good.
Heck, it’s so good they even let Anthony Mackie, who plays Cap’s ally Falcon, fly in an F-16 Fighting Falcon last weekend at Nellis Air Force Base. (See below.)
But once you’ve seen “The Winter Soldier,” what’s left on your comic-book calendar for 2014?
Here’s a look at five other superhero movies set for release this year:
1) “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” (May 2): Spidey (Andrew Garfield) battles Electro (Jamie Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), The Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and more, all while trying to reconnect with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).
2) “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (May 23): In order to save the future, the mutants from the first three “X-Men” movies must join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class.”
3) “Guardians of the Galaxy” (Aug. 1): After a bounty is placed on his head for stealing a coveted orb, adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) seeks protection by teaming with four misfits — green-skinned assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), brutish Drax (Dave Bautista), a genetically altered, cybernetically enhanced talking raccoon named Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and the humanoid tree creature Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) — in this Marvel adaptation.
4) “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (Aug. 8): OK, there’s some dispute over whether they’re actually superheroes. But we’ll let it slide. Either way, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael go back to the beginning in this reboot of their origin tale from executive producer Michael Bay.
5) “Big Hero 6” (Nov. 7): A robotics prodigy and his robot, Baymax, join a team of rookie crime-fighters to save their city, San Fransokyo, in this animated adaptation of the Marvel comic.
