Yep, Chris Evans is back in the suit for a grittier looking sequel with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) by his side and Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury popping by for contractual obligations. Hooray! Of course, The Winter Soldier is the new baddie, with Robert Redford also popping his head in to see what it feels like to be part of a franchise. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” opens on April 4th. Watch both trailers below.
