Captain America Empire Cover Plus Pics & Nick Fury Confirmed for 'Thor' and 'Captain America'

The new Empire cover features Chris Evans in his stars-and-stripes as 'Captain America: The First Avenger'. Directed by Joe Johnston, the action adventure stars Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Dominic Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci and Neal McDonough.

Below are five new photos from Captain America: The First Avenger, also your first look at first shot of Cap's sidekick, "Bucky" Barnes as portrayed by Sebastian Stan. Also included in the magazine are new images of HYDRA troops and Hugo Weaving's Red Skull

Chris Evans also told Les Toiles Heroiques that he is not contracted for nine Marvel films as was previously rumored.
"To be honest," he says in a quote translated back from French, "it was quite intimidating to commit to nine films in a row. Thankfully, we reduced the number to six... If all goes as planned, I will be playing Captain America until I'm 40."
Describing the movie version of Bucky, the character as the "Band of Brothers" version, director Joe Johnston says that Stan's performance will offer a "dark side" to Barnes.
"We took some liberties with the relationship between the two guys,” Johnston is quoted as saying. “In our story, Bucky is already in the service, he’s already joined up and is being sent overseas while Steve is still struggling to get in the army. That’s different than what you may have read in the comics. It adds a nuance to the relationship that pays off later. They’re closer in age, too — they’re virtually the same age.”
Also Samuel L. Jackson appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and confirmed that Nick Fury will be making cameo appearances in 'Thor' and 'Captain America: The First Avenger'.
