Hold on to your shields, Marvel fans!
With the official trailer set to debut this Thursday (that means tomorrow, put a star on your calendar), a plethora of goodies have been released in anticipation for the upcoming film Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This sequel to 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger follows Steve Rogers living quietly in Washington, D.C. as he struggles to adapt to the modern world. The film takes places two years after the events of The Avengers. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is attacked, Rogers is pulled back into that world and must team up with fellow Avenger teammate Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow once more to take on an unexpected villain with a familiar face: the Winter Soldier aka Bucky aka Roger’s best friend-turned-brainwashed-assassin.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier marches into theaters April 4, 2014. Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, and Cobie Smulders all reprise their Marvel roles from previous films. Anthony Mackie joins the cast as the Falcon, a hero and ally for Cap and Romanoff, and Emily VanCamp takes on the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter.
