Chris Evans’ patriotic Steve Rogers is taking down bad guys on the high seas in a new four-minute clip from “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the latest Marvel sequel due in theaters April 4.

The film teams up Cap with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow on key missions, including the one highlighted in the footage from the new movie, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.

Set after the events depicted in 2012′s “The Avengers,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” sees Evans’ hero having remained in the employ of S.H.I.E.L.D. Yet even as he bonds with a military man named Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Cap finds himself with few people he can trust as his past quite literally comes back to haunt him in the form of a close friend turned enemy.

Although earlier trailers have played up the movie’s showstopping action — car crashes, shootouts, massive demolition, etc. — Evans has pointed out that this time around, Cap will be grappling not just with a lethal threat in the form of the titular villain, but also the moral ambiguities of the modern age.

“For Steve, it’s about what is right,” Evans said in an interview with Hero Complex. “He’s relatively acclimated to the modern day — it’s not tech shock anymore, he’s not just like, ‘What’s a cellphone?’ It’s more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that’s the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It’s pretty crazy how relevant it is right now.”

Using movies such as Robert Redford’s “Three Days of the Condor” as creative guides (Redford appears in “Winter Soldier” as high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. official Alexander Pierce), the directors said they aimed to essentially place Steve Rogers inside his own political thriller. Marrying two seemingly disparate film genres was deeply appealing.

“We’ve always looked at that as a road to how you find freshness in storytelling,” Joe Russo told Hero Complex. “Bringing together incongruous elements and figuring out how do they mix and what do they make when you put them together.” (Things appear to have worked out well for the directing team — word surfaced this week that Marvel is reportedly planning to bring them back to direct another “Cap” movie.)
