Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier is just a few weeks away. Now you can share your excitement of the new film your friends and family with special Skype emoticons. The four unlocked emoticons available now are of Cap, The Winter Soldier, Nick Fury and an amazing, full bodied Black Widow, showing off some of her moves. (Try making that with a semicolon.)

The official Skype page promoting the emoticons reads:

“For mightier chats: just add heroes. We're celebrating the world premiere of Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier with our first-ever Marvel emoticons! To add some action to your chats, try typing in (captain) (bucky) (nickfury) or (blackwidow) to reveal these limited edition characters. You'll need the very latest version of Skype, where they should be ready to deploy from 13 March*. But make the most of them --they won't be on duty for long.”

True believers also have a chance to unlock a fifth super secret emoticon from the film. We could tell you the identity of the hidden character, but that would ruin all the fun. You can unlock the classified character by taking the short Cap trivia here.

The emoticons are available for Windows Phone,Windows platforms, Xbox and Android. Mac OSX user will have access to soon.

Skype and the film’s stars are also offering up a special salute to some everyday heroes. The website goes on to add:

“Marvel and Skype have gotten together to honor everyday heroes. Do you know someone who goes above and beyond? They could be a relative, friend, or colleague – if they’re an unsung hero, tell us in a video message. Some lucky heroes will earn a salute from the movie's stars. “
