Trailer of the Day: Captain America – The Winter Soldier


Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C. – IMDb

Am I the only one who still has trouble buying Chris Evans as Captain America? He is a good actor and I really enjoy him in movies where he is a bit of a wisecracking, devil-may-care type (like in the FANTASTIC FOUR films and THE LOSERS) but he just hasn’t shown anywhere near the gravitas I think is necessary to embody Cap. His boyishness worked in the first film and there was more than enough other stuff in THE AVENGERS that it didn’t bother me but this trailer doesn’t make me think any differently about Evans in the role. And what is up with all of the shots of Evans in plain clothes wielding his shield? Outside of full Captain America uniform he looks a bit goofy running around in a jeans and a member’s Only jacket slinging an indestructible shield.
Not to be a total complainer here, I did like the shot of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier looks pretty cool especially that last shot of the trailer where the Soldier catches the shield after Cap throws it at him.

    First time I have been excited about this film. Looks really excellent but I just hope it holds up to its own trailer 😀

      I have read interviews where the director is saying that this movie is going to be more of a spy action/thriller than a straight up superhero movie which has me very intrigued.

        Yeah before the trailer that bit of info was the only thing attracting me to the film. But trailer is good so am in 😀
