Cap is back! The trailer for ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ dropped Oct 24 and it looks good, Flixnerds.
We still have to wait until Spring of 2014 for its release, but the new trailer from Marvel should get fans excited about the next chapter for Steve Rogers, a.k.a. ‘Captain America.’
Rogers is adjusting to his new life after being frozen for sixty years and saving humanity in ‘The Avengers’ battle of New York.
When an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. is attacked, director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) enlist Rogers to bring down a conspiracy that threatens the safety of our world.
Chris Evans is back as ‘Captain America’ along with Scarlett Johansson as ‘Black Widow,’ Anthony Mackie as new ally ‘The Falcon,’ and Sebastian Stan as ‘The Winter Soldier.’
Out of the Marvel movie heroes, Steve Rogers holds the most potential for an interesting character arc. Rogers is a “man out of time” and has lost everyone that he loved and trusted.
The first ‘Captain America’ movie is very good, but Rogers was a little too bland and jingoistic. Cap should be a heroic patriot not a gung-ho, gee whiz pantywaist. The new film seems to have given a slightly darker edge to the character. It was needed, and a natural evolution of Captain America.
Bad-ass Cap? Bring it on!
With ‘Thor: The Dark World’ coming in November, expect to see a new trailer for ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ as one of its featured previews.
