Captain America The Winter Soldier lead

Words By Dr Hip-Hop

With the start of Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man 3, instead of simply world-building, the titanic team-up of Disney and Marvel is really reaching into the world of the comic universe to give us films based on specific storylines.

We saw this with the Warren Ellis penned “Extremis” arc from Marvel’s Invincible Iron Man comic in Iron Man 3, and rumors whisper that there are some echoes of Walter Simonson’s original “Malekith the Accursed” story in Thor: The Dark World. So when news got out that the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger was titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the entire comic book fandom went nuts.

And after much antcipation, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer from the 2014 film today. Chris Evans, Scarlett Johannson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smoulders, and a few others reprise their roles from the first Captain America and Avengers films, plus the sequel has a few notable additions, like Anthony Mackie as the first African American Marvel superhero, The Falcon. The film is loosely based on the aforementioned story arc from the Captain America comic and if the trailer and comic are any indication of what this film may be, its going to be EPIC.

Looking more like a mash-up of Daniel Craig’s Bond and Matt Damon’s Bourne series than the first, the sequel has our relic of a hero dealing with a geopolitical landscape fraught with moral quandaries he just isn’t comfortable with. But of course, it’s a trailer, so we get quite a few action shots, explosions, cool poses, and literal geek-out moments (I screamed about three or four times watching it).

The two biggest things to notice are the Falcon, who we get to see fully suited up, and of course, the Winter Soldier. For those who aren’t familiar with the comic, I won’t spoil his identity (and I ask that no one does in the comments section) but I will say it will rock the foundation of of our title character as much as any of Robert Redford’s or Sam Jack’s words.

The next adventures of the sentinel of liberty hit the big screen April 4th, 2014.
