As we head closer to Halloween, one of the outfits I end up seeing most on the streets of New York is that of Captain America, with his trademark shield and face mask fending off witches and zombies that appear oh-so coincidently around this time. The timing is, therefore, great that Marvel this week revealed online the poster and the trailer for the upcoming Captain America The Winter Soldier.
The official plotline of Captain America: The Winter Soldier we’re told is that Cap, aka Steve Rogers, teams up with Black Widow, to battle ‘a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.’
“Gear up, it’s time,” our hero, played once again by Chris Evans tells Anthony Mackie’s S.H.I.E.L.D agent Sam Wilson in this trailer. Well, it’s almost time. In April 2014 we’ll get to see Chris in his slick new costume – which I’m liking a LOT – alongside Scarlet Johansson’ Black Widow, Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury, and Mr Suave Robert Redford as a S.H.I.E.L.D head honcho.
For now, I’ll have to make do with the mini-Captains running around the streets.
