The buzz about Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been building for a while, given a healthy boost by that effective Super Bowl tease and now some glowing word of mouth from press types who have seen the finished film and talked it up on Twitter. To convince anyone still on the fence about it, Marvel has put a full clip online.
This look at one of the movie’s set pieces sees Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers in hot pursuit of mysterious enemy the Winter Soldier. Cap bounds through an office building – and when we say through, we mean it – like an excited puppy who has heard that it’s dinnertime.
Our hero, however, is less than thrilled, as it appears the Winter Soldier is a major threat with powers that could rival Steve’s own. That’s clearly demonstrated when Rogers hurls his shield at the Soldier, who catches it like someone playing a game of Frisbee, and hurls it back at Cap…
It’s all part of a bigger story that finds the First Avenger questioning S.H.I.E.L.D.’s motives and butting heads with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford). Who can he trust besides fellow agent Natasha “Black Widow” Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and new friend Sam “Falcon” Wilson? We’ll find that out – and gape as Helicarriers come crashing from the sky – when Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrives on March 26.
