Newsarama reports that Marvel is releasing a special tie-in comic for Captain America: The Winter Soldier which will be called Captain America: Homecoming. The one-shot comic will be written by Fred Van Lente and drawn by Tom Grummett. You can find artwork below. The website also spoke with Van Lente about the story. Here are highlights:
On where the comic fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe: "It's inspired by the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and takes place between the events of The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
On the story: "In this story, Steve Rogers takes Natasha to the Brooklyn neighborhood where he grew up. A lot has changed there since Steve was a kid in the 1930s, but the walk down memory lane is interrupted when a terrorist strike happens while they're there. The question of whether it happens because they were there or not is a question readers will have to wait until they read the issue to find out."
On the relationship of Captain America and the Black Widow: "They're co-workers; both are S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and have been working for Nick Fury for some time. They have a fun kind of relationship, and it's sort of different than in the comics. In the comics Black Widow was an old timer from the cold war, but the modern Black Widow from the Marvel movies – played by Scarlett Johansson – is more recent. So here, it's fun to play off the age difference between Natasha and Steve, and see her needle him for his age."
