The Captain wears “modern-day spy adventure” very well. This full trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is short on plot specifics, but promises a whole lotta general spy action and escalation within the Marvel Universe. I’m not expecting any new ground broken on the “who wants to destroy what to make how much money or get power where” side of the plot, but an out-of-time, costumed hero wrapped up in a international geopolitical scheme is innovative enough to hook me in.
I get the impression Chris Evans is really going to prove his chops in this one, as he adjusts his Cap for a new time and to anchor a new tone of movie. I’m even excited to see Scarlett Johansson get her best opportunity to flesh out her Avenger yet.
This hits April 4th of next year, and I expect it will do very well.
