Clips from two highly anticipated superhero sequels have been released online. First up, a new clip from Captain America: The Winter Soldier features neither Captain America nor the Winter Soldier, as we instead see a discussion between Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Robert Redford’s character, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. If you’re itching to see the titular duo, though, check out yesterday’s clip. Early reactions to the film have been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m eager to see how Redford fits into the overall Marvel universe. You’ll also want to stick around after the credits to see a scene directed by Joss Whedon. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th.
Additionally, two new clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been released, just a day after the debut clip came online. These two new clips feature, alternately, a scene between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone), and a scene between Peter and Harry (Dane DeHaan). They’re both quite character-centric, which is promising. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. 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.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.
