The first trailer for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is slated for release tomorrow morning, but Marvel’s amping up the hype with a teaser video.
That’s right — a teaser for a trailer.
The 10-second video, released Wednesday, packs in a lot of action. The clip features Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, shield in hand, as well as what appears to be the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier preparing for launch, a view of Washington, D.C., Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, some exploding cars, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff (a.k.a. Black Widow), Steve Rogers in civilian clothes hurdling some desks and Steve in his Cap gear, slamming his shield down on what might be another person.
The full “Winter Soldier” trailer is scheduled to debut at 9 a.m. PDT Thursday on iTunes trailers.
The video clip (watch it above) follows yesterday’s release of a new movie poster, also featuring Evans suited up as Captain America, looking out over D.C. from what looks like a S.H.I.E.L.D. airplane’s cargo hold.
The film, due out April 4, will adhere closely to writer Ed Brubaker’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” comic book story line, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said.
Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, the film will continue to explore Steve Rogers’ tricky adjustment to the modern world after his 65 years frozen in the Arctic, though with a decidedly more political bent.
“He’s still trying to acclimate,” Evans said during the film’s presentation at D23 in August. “It’s more about trying to get used to the way the world is now in terms of society and politics.”
In addition to Evans, Johansson and Jackson, “Winter Soldier” stars returning Marvel movie players Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill) and Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), and adds Anthony Mackie (the Falcon) and Robert Redford (Agent Alexander Pierce), among others.
