New ‘Captain America’ Poster Causes Classic Internet Overreaction

So the latest poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has hit the net, and in classic fashion, the internet has basically gone into complete overreaction mode.

First, let’s take a look at the poster itself, which features Scarlett Johansson as the returning Black Widow:

The poster above has prompted a ton of online criticisms, particularly from Magna Farta, a blog that put together this analysis of the image:

The critique, which has been reblogged and liked over 60,000 times, picks apart the poster for the photoshopping involved in its creation. Of course, I struggle to see how this is any different from just about every other movie poster that gets made today for action blockbusters, but then, I’m not really good at the internet. Seriously, total novice over here.

So what do you think of this hubbub over the poster? Justified? Or a complete overreaction? Sound off in the comments!
