NEHvengers Ep15: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Series Finale Review Josh Yutkins-Kennedy
The first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released today. From looking at the trailer, this movie going to be filled with a lot of action, drama, and romance just like every good super hero movie should be. It’s hard to expect something good from this movie’s predecessor and the directors Anthony and Joe Russo haven’t made a feature film since You, Me, and Dupree. Adding to the argument that some of the trailers from past Marvel movies have looked incredible and then turned out to be complete disappointments aka Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, and the list goes on.
Here is a quick synopsis of the movie directly from MarvelUK’s YouTube channel.
Captain America returns! The official first trailer for Captain America The Winter Soldier — in UK cinemas March 26 2014. The sequel to Marvel’s Captain America The First Avenger. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell with Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka 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.
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is produced by Kevin Feige, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp and Hayley Atwell, with Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Alan Fine and Stan Lee. The film releases March 26 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Looking more towards the positive side, it’s a new movie with new directors with a story that actually sounds good. Also with returning stars such as badass Samuel L Jackson and Scarlett Johansson, it’s gonna take more than some cheesey CGI and a some bad acting to make this movie a waste of our time.
Overall this trailer is well done and excitement is coming back to Marvel Universe. Only time will tell if this movie lives up to it’s potential or crashes and burns. Captain America: The Winter Soldier gets released in the UK on March 26 2014 and in the US on April 4, 2014.
