God Bless (Captain) America.
Marvel have premiered the first trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier. Our first glimpse of the highly anticipated sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger whets fanboy appetites everywhere in a slick, neatly-edited package, including a parachute-less skydive from the fearless hero.
With cheekbones seemingly carved by Lady Liberty herself, Chris Evans was the perfect Cap: a morally righteous but reluctant hero who fought the Nazis, only to be frozen in a glacier and reawakened 70 years later by Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury to help form the Avengers.
Steve Rogers' first post-Avengers outing sees him team up with new pal Black Widow, new colleague the Falcon, new boss, Robert Redford, and new enemy (and former bezzie) Bucky, aka the Winter Soldier.
The film's official synopsis reads thus:
"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 is due to be released on 2nd May 2014.
