The first, overwhelmingly positive reactions to Marvel’s sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrived last night, and now Disney is taking advantage of that buzz by releasing the first clip from the pic online. Described as a “political thriller” and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film finds Captain America (Chris Evans) joining forces with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) to expose a conspiracy, fight off professional assassins, and battle a new enemy, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). In this debut clip, we see Cap chasing down the titular baddie through an office building. It shows off the kind of smaller-scale action that the thriller genre offers, and at one point I half-expected Evans to shout “Parkour!”
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, and Maximiliano Hernández. Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
