Yesterday, we got the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it was pretty great. For those of you not familiar with the plot (and you might not be since the trailer is heavier on the theme), the story has Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) teaming up to face off against an assassin known as “The Winter Soldier”. We’ve now grabbed 50 images from the trailer, and they highlight two things. First, there’s a lot more Winter Soldier than you think since the character flashes by quickly and is in the far background of the shots. Second, this trailer gives away some big plot points, but you probably wouldn’t notice them because, again, everything is going by so fast. Consider that a minor spoiler warning.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
Here’s the 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.
