With the release date a few scant weeks away, it's understandable if you don't want to watch another snippet of Captain America: The Winter Soldier to preserve as much of the set-piece goodness as you can. But this new TV spot, which features some superb action moments, is worth it if you don’t mind seeing more of the film.
We get extended looks at Cap (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in action, battling the evil Winter Soldier and their own consciences when it comes to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s darker actions. Yes, as Steve Rogers discovers something rotten in the heart of the organisation he works for (and clashes with bigwig Alexander Pierce, played by Robert Redford), the stakes are raised and our hero’s past yet again comes back to haunt him.
With Frank Grillo, Cobie Smulders and Emily Van Camp also among the cast, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be with us on March 28.
In related Avengers news, it appears that happy news for Scarlett Johansson will lead to some juggling in Age Of Ultron’s schedule. The Black Widow actress, you see, is pregnant and expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Dauriac. Which means, according to E! Online, that her scenes will have to be fast-tracked to accomodate a reported August due-date. It may also require a little scripting work by Joss Whedon to accommodate the change, and any potential re-shoots might be tricky unless S.H.I.E.L.D. starts making maternity cat suits. In any case, best of luck to all involved in working it out, and congratulations to Johansson and Dauriac.
