The covers to the upcoming issue of the UK's Empire Magazine has one of the best 'still' looks yet at Captain America's S.H.I.E.L.D. 'Super Solider' costume from this coming April's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and one of the best looks yet anywhere of Sebastian Stan as the titular Winter Soldier.

And of course there is the Black Widow too and in these images at least a decidedly dark color scheme.

Now the cynics in us wonders if the change to the Super Solider costume is something of a small attempt to address how The Winter Soldier plays in foreign markets, the growing strength of the Marvel brand post-Avengers. But then the trailer does show glimpses of the more traditional Star-and-Stripes-inspired costume too, and either which way, it's a marked improvement over Cap's figure skater-inspired costume from The Avengers, wouldn't you agree?
