Synopsis: After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
I say this after pretty much every Marvel trailer I see, but man i can’t wait for this movie!
The first movie poster was released earlier this week, and now we have the trailer. The action looks awesome, especially what happens in the elevator scene. I like Cap’s new outfit, it is very similar to his recent outfit from a few years ago.
Although it does seem he will get the new outfit somewhere along the way, since there were several quick seconds towards the end that featured his red and blue costume from The Avengers. We also get to see Anthony Mackie as The Falcon and Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier. The Winter Soldier looks down right intimidating. And when he catches the shield? Hooboy, I got chills! I was hoping to see some of Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter (AKA Agent 13), but maybe in the next trailer.
More of SHIELD is shown, too. From the Helicarrier shipyard-like thing, to more of the higher personnel, such as Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce, a senior SHIELD member. With Cap working for SHIELD, maybe we get to see more of how it operates and their relationship to the World Council seen in The Avengers.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, hits theaters April 4, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Tobert Redford, Emily VanCamp, and Cobie Smulders.
