Marvel recently unveiled the Super Bowl TV spot for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." And now the studio has released a new trailer for the superhero sequel. Check it out below.
Plot: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" picks up where "The Avengers" left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, DC.
The new movie is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (You, Me and Dupree) is set to hit theaters on April 4th.

Looks alright, I guess, if you're into that exploding SUV cliche they do all the time, and perhaps if you're a huge fan of the highway scene from Matrix Reloaded.

At least it has a definite theme and direction which is what Thor and Iron Man didn't really have.

So....what's the theme and direction?
Sleuth1989writes: on February 2nd, 2014 at 9:57:45 PM
It seems they are dealing with issues of big government controlling the world through fear tactics and "Big Brother" monitoring us. Also a clash of ideals and the right way to fight for freedom. That's my guess. You and me talked about this I think when that teaser poster came
out with the shield that has faded colors.

Yes, I know, but we got all of that from the shield. From the trailer alone, though, I'm not getting much direction or theme, which should be conveyed a bit more heavily if they're trying to make this film look like anything more than a successful followup to The Avengers.

Unfortunately it's also about selling the film so they emphasized the action in the trailer.

Looks better than expected, I give you that. However, as I said many times, trailer can be very much deceiving.

^^Indeed. Remember Terminator 3 and Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions?
Thor 2 was meh because it suffered from too much nonsensical space/energy/magic/dimensional-portal bullsh*t, and yet another alien invasion plot ...and it looked like a LOTR/Star Wars hand-me-down.
This looks to shed any and all supernatural stuff (even from the previous Cap entry) for just straight spy-action type material, albeit suped-up to Marvel hights of elaborate technology, which is fine, or at least to be expected.
Here's hoping it delivers what the trailer promises steadily enough.
hmm...well it'll take marvel to connect truly with their fans on their own properties...as long as they deliver what is promised, i'm sure fans will respond better than 20th century fox ruining another x-men film
