‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Gets an Exciting 4-Minute Preview

Published 1 year ago by , Updated March 6th, 2014 at 3:21 pm,

Marvel Studios always goes overboard on marketing its films, which is the reason why Captain America: The Winder Soldier has been grabbing headlines on a nearly-daily basis these past couple weeks – with new trailers, posters, and/or TV spots dropping wherever you turn to look - as we move closer and closer to its Spring release date.

However, the latest preview (a Fandango exclusive) might be the most exhilarating teaser released for the Captain America sequel thus far – which is saying something. It begins with a truncated version of a sequence glimpsed in previous trailers – where Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) lead a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. employees to infiltrate a ship of hostage-taking pirates; much sick, butt-kicking and fighting commences.

Both that extended Cap 2 clip and the conventional trailer montage that follows after very much suggest that The Winter Soldier will play out like the political action/thriller we’ve been promised – albeit, one that just happens to feature superheroes like Captain America, Black Widow and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) battling a dangerous international foe, instead of a more traditional U.S. government agent heading into the fray (a la Jack Ryan).

Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo come from a comedy upbringing (on TV shows like Arrested Development and Community), but it seems that on their first of possibly multiple Marvel films, the pair will prove adept at staging massive action set pieces and close-quarter hand to hand combat sequences. It probably didn’t hurt that the duo collaborated with cinematographer Trent Opaloch, who also shot the well-coordinated action scenes for Neil Blomkamp’s sci-fi flicks District 9 and Elysium.

Beyond that, there are hints that the Winter Soldier script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – co-writers on Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor: The Dark World – will not only handle Steve’s ensuring moral/ethical dilemma with care, but also remember to continue his emotional arc where it was left off during The Avengers.

That includes what may be a tear-inducing (at the least, heartstring-tugging) reunion with an old acquaintance, whose voice can be heard in the latest preview. Spring can’t get here soon enough…

  1. This looks amazing. Like others, though, I shouldn’t have watched that! I want this movie NOW.

  2. Cool clip, but shouldn’t Cap be wet after jumping in the ocean?

    • the suit has the built in clothes dryer, ala` BTTF2.

  3. Really?! I was sold from the first trailer, and now they are going make us wait a whole month after this preview? That’s just cruel!


  4. This looks like what a superhero movie should be…

    and yes, that is a comment on the rest of them.

  5. Is it me or does this look like it’s going to be the best Marvel movie? This is coming from someone who loves all of the marvel movies!!!!!!

    • Agreed, but I think the most appealing part to Captain America compared to any other Marvel Hero is not the patriotic American… Its that his origin is contemporary and someone we can all relate to. He’s not an Alien, a Demigod, a Techno-Billionaire, or a Mad Scientist… He’s was an ordinary kid from Brooklyn who was the underdog who was chosen to be gifted these super human abilities and wasn’t corrupted by them. He’s the soldier he couldn’t have otherwise been, standing up for the little guy, and he has a foundation of principles that he will not readily concede for his own personal gain. These are probably the most endearing qualities that appeal to audiences and fans overall.

  6. only 29 more days!

  7. jaw drop, tongue roll… head explode!!!

  8. I hate those stupid movie computer bleeping sound effects… Why can’t Hollywood simply do computer scenes without them already. I think most people are experienced enough with real computers to know they don’t make those stupid noises already.

  9. Why do i do this to myself :’(

  10. BW just picks up that steel pipe and knocks the s*** out of that guy. This is DEFINITELY going to be fun to watch. Cant wait!!!!

  11. AMAZING…. i just had a look at one of the scenes, showing Scar’s behind… WHAT PHOTOSHOP BS ARE THEY RANTING ABOUT!! its about as real on midgard as it could possibly get.
