Marvel just unveiled a four-minute preview from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," which opens with a three-minute clip from the film and ends with a new trailer. 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.
I always imagined Captain America as older with a deeper voice. Chris Evans just doesn't capture that character at all, imo.

I disagree. While he is younger I think that works in his favor as the naive, idealist and this allows them to develop him as he grows into a more mature character. Stark having him questions orders in Avengers was a prime example of that.
^^He just doesn't look the part. Too young, too halfhearted in manner, and far too treble in voice.
They should have hired an actual man for such a manly role and not Chris Evans, who is little more than a high-school underwear pin-up.
Even Ryan Reynolds would have been better.

Ryan reynolds? Now I know I'm being trolled. At least Evans doesn't have a monotone voice. LOL Evans was the best one you could get for the role in what we have now. He's got the All American look to him, can physically handle it, and seems like he is fairly humble in real life which is what Captain America needs. Also you have to remember that they aren't going exactly by the comics. He could develop into what you want but they had to fast-track him to be in place for The Avengers movie.
Disney CEO Bob Iger, Marvel CCO Joe Quesada and New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo held a press conference to announce that Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage are heading to NYC, giving New York State its largest ever production commitment with a $200 million deal to shoot the shows. Check out some highlights from the press conference, and here's the official description from the press release: "This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs totaling 52 one-hour episodes culminating in a four to eight episode mini-series programming event. Led by a series focused on Daredevil, followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking viewers deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hellís Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a mini-series event in which the Marvel characters from the first four series team up as The Defenders, much like The Avengers..."

I'll definitely check out London, but "Sunshine" was oddly enough where I noticed that Evans could be darker. I mean he still ended up being the good guy but he had a questionable mood the whole movie. Just saying, when Danny Boyle casts you in a film it's a good sign you might be a decent actor. LOL
How the hell do you figure that? So his build isn't bulkier, he looks just like the old artwork and most of the cartoon interpretations have a voice that is not how normal people talk. Joe Swanson from Family Guy talks like those cartoon versions. Do you want Captain America to sound like that? LOL
"He could develop into what you want but they had to fast-track him to be in place for The Avengers movie."
How? By getting facial surgery, deepening his voice and maturing ten years in one week?
Jon Hamm would have made a much better Captain. And all Reynolds would have had to do was wear the damned ugly suit and repeat the stupid lines.
I might also mention Evans was atrocious in The Losers, but that film better reflects his innate personality, which is what you see through the thin patina of cheap commercial heroism Marvel's tried to paint onto him with this bland Captain America role.

So you find a crude, static comic panel of a golden-haired Captain America and you say what? Evans totally fits the role just because they both have flaxen hair? lol.
The f*cking comic panel looks like it was filled in with a three-color set of RoseArt colored pencils, fer Christ's sake.
I will admit Evans was decent in the tiny role he had in The Iceman, but much of that was makeup, costume and a weird voice. I just don't call that acting.
Acting is where a guy in a three-piece suit convinces me he's a caged Chinese lunch chicken. Now THAT is acting.
What these folks do today is basically light role-playing with a heavy helping of CGI, makeup, wardrobe and sh*tty accents. For example, Bale in American Hustle. Or even what's his name in The Dark Knight. That dead guy.
They put on a beard, or tons of makeup, some ragged clothes and then stumble around pretending I'm sold they're a wino, or whatever it is they think they're getting paid millions to ape.

Look man I get your point in acting but dead again, like I've said, Captain America: The First Avenger rushed his story with zero character development and The Avengers was about a team so he didn't get that much either. We need to see him in a movie like Winter Soldier to see what he is capable of. Give him till the end of this film and then let me know. he hasn't had time to get more than his character's basic points across. And Jon Hamm would have oversold the dark broody thing which is not Captain America. LOL Basically, Evans remains untested in this role still and I think this time around we're going to find out.
You're kind of obtuse, Sleuth, because I'm not arguing Hamm, for example, because I want "dark and brooding". In fact, mischaracterizing my statements as you are is what we folks call a straw man.
Again, I think Evans looks far too immature. It's in his voice and his facial structure. He looks like he's still in high school. That's not Captain America to me, but for you folks who need teenyboppers in every film, when you demand Dawson's Creek's cast for every film, get what you want. The rest of us, the grown adults, have to settle for the teenage angle in almost every f*cking film.
Me? I want mature looking actors in mature-looking roles. Captain America, and Marvel's films up till now, have been anything but. Still, though that's not the entire issue as they could have easily compromised by giving us a guy who looks like he's seen war. Evan's doesn't He looks like he just a f*cking perm. But that's not the way because they want teenage liquidity, and to get that they must market their properties to adult children.
Look, believe what you want. I really, truly don't give a f*ck. I'm just saying the dude looks like some 23 year-old Cali jock in a well-made Halloween costume uttering stupid lines in what could only be called theatrical manhood, and not the fully grown man you'd expect would have helped lead Allied forces to victory in the world's greatest military conflict.
I bet those nerds are having nerdgasm right now. However, I still reserve my judgment for this movie. Great trailer doesn't mean the movie will be great.
Sleuth1989writes: on March 6th, 2014 at 9:45:57 PM
And I'm telling you wait and see instead of assuming sh*t. I'm not trying to be obtuse but you keep suggesting all these actors who would not have fit it any more. I prefer mature actors to play mature characters as well but Captain America really is anything but. He's a simple, idealist with a black and white way of thinking so having him look young and naive is exactly what you need. And what do you mean no mature actors? We have Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel Jackson, and even Jeremy Renner plays it strong and "mature" as a soldier. I really don't get what you are looking for. I get why you are arguing Hamm because you want a mature-looking actor.

Marky MArk would've looked better in the role than Evans.

Way back in another thread, somebody had suggested Casper Van Dien.
I could see him in that role and still fill in Sleuth's view of the character. Which I totally agree with. Like...totally.

So, just because he isn't what YOU want in Captain America, they should cast someone YOU think should play him?
Sure, Hamm would be good, but if you couldn't get him, then you gotta go with Evans. Despite all the comedic roles he's played in the past, he is probably the best-suited actor there is to play Cap, IMO.
