Marvel Studios looks primed to do it again with their latest film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In fact, they’re so confident in the film that a Captain America 3 from the same directors has already been unofficially greenlit. Tonight, we get to see just why they’re so confident as the studio released a Super Bowl spot and new trailer for the film, giving us our first really good look at Cap’s titular adversary, The Winter Soldier.
To anyone who knows the comic book story that the movie is based on, you have to appreciate how the trailers are still guarding The Winter Soldier’s true identity. I wonder if it will be played as a big reveal in the film? The footage shown here also offers hints of previously rumored story points like an injured Fury, a corrupted S.H.I.E.L.D., a new sidekick in the form of the Falcon (played by Anthony Mackie) and a death significant enough to make Black Widow weepy. Also, Captain America looks like he gets to kick all kinds of butt.
You’re getting excited now, right?
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theaters everywhere on April 4th. Check out the Super Bowl spot and the extended trailer below and let us know what you think.
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.
