Marvel Studios has released a new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier that shows how the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) will play more of a role in the story, a development I’m excited to see. (Love the banter here!)
The plot description is as follows:
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.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, starring Chris Evans, releases on April 4, 2014. Samuel L. Jackson appears as Nick Fury and Robert Redford (!) as Alexander Pierce, with Cobie Smulders returning as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill and Sebastian Stan as … that would be telling, right?
