The first trailer is out for Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and it looks Awesome! They actually gave us a lot more than I expected, with clear views of both Anthony Mackie as The Falcon and Sebastian Stan as Bucky/ The Winter Solider.
Unlike the other sequels in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Cap sequel is almost like a reboot. The first film was great, but it was a WWII period film. This new movie is post Avengers. It shows Steve Rogers, 100% in the present, even if he is dealing with a nemesis who was his partner in the past.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. 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.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
