Marvel gave us a tease of their Super Bowl spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier last week, but they made sure to get their money's worth now with a full 2 1/2 minute trailer for the superhero sequel. Chris Evans is back as Captain America in a film that looks a lot more 'Bourne Identity' than anything we've seen from Marvel up to this point. The storyline seems vaguely reminiscent of the 'Death of Captain America' storyline with Cap questioning SHIELD's actions, Bucky returned as the brainwashed Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), and the villain Crossbones (Frank Grillo) lurking around. Scarlett Johansson co-stars as Black Widow with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Robert Redford as SHIELD brass Alexander Pierce. Here's the official synopsis, followed by the U.S. trailer. Go here for the slightly different U.K. version.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th.
PLOT: 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.
