Captain America 2 Trailer Promises 'Winter Soldier' Action (Video)

The new trailer for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" gives viewers a glimpse of action, involving a hero in conflict with his superiors and a dangerous opponent.

The Captain America trailer, which is about two and a half minutes long, will be enough to whet the appetite for Marvel fans for now, but it raises questions about the fate of Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans.

The trailer raises questions like how does Rogers defeat a powerful enemy like the Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, while resolving his work issues with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury and a new SHIELD honcho played by Robert Redford? 

"To build a better world sometimes means tearing the old one down," Redford, who plays Alexander Pierce, tells Captain America in the trailer, an ominous lead in to the movie's upcoming conflict. "And that makes enemies."

The trailer shows some of the mayhem the Winter Soldier plans to create on the streets of Washington, D.C. The final clip in the trailer shows him catching Captain America's iconic shield with his bare hands after Rogers slings it at him, which will obviously raise his badness quotient for fans.

The trailer also exposes the upcoming conflict between Rogers and his immediate superior Nick Fury, who tells Captain America of SHEILD's proactive activities to take out villains.

"I thought the punishment usually came after the crime," retorts Rogers in the trailer, showing his disapproval of some of the methods, leading Fury to respond, "SHIELD takes the world as it is, not like we'd like it to be."

HitFix.com reported that this second take of a Captain America movie strays from the original, but that might be a bad thing. 

"'Captain America: The First Avenger' was one of the most satisfying films in Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the initial trailer for the sequel promises a darker, more contemporary tale combining explosive superhero action with the type of trust-no-one suspense found in the best paranoid thrillers," HitFix.com wrote.

Darren Franich, of Entertainment Weekly, said the trailer shows how Marvel has worked to stay as true as possible to the comic book version of Captain America. 

"Feel free to layer in whatever themes of post-9/11 anxiety, disaster capitalism, governmental overreach, etc.," Franich wrote. "Give Marvel some credit: They’re living up to Captain America’s long history of tackling contemporary social issues."
