The first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is here! Did you see it yet? OK, click the link and go take care of that first. Because we're about to dig pretty deep into this thing.
Well, given that this is a Marvel movie, and they are very good at only revealing information exactly when they want to, there are no flat-out reveals in this trailer. We knew that Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) would be back in the form of The Winter Soldier, and that the story would be taking place in modern-day Washington, D.C. But seeing the concept art of Cap taking on his old pal Bucky is one thing; seeing it in action on a DC highway is another entirely.
There's a lot of mayhem going down in this first look at Winter Soldier, and it's unclear if the titular bad guy is responsible for all of it-- after all, there are plenty of henchmen for Cap to beat up in an elevator. But whoever's doing the wrecking, they're doing a good job. Like, check out this shot of Cap and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) watching someone go into surgery:
Forget who's going under the knife (though it appears to be a black man-- maybe Anthony Mackie's Falcon?) Is that hospital room the same one that explodes on Cap and Black Widow later in the trailer?
Regardless of where that explosion happens, it seems to leave Black Widow a little worse for wear.
Though probably not worse than the poor Helicarrier, which for the second time after The Avengers gets attacked, and this time it doesn't survive.
There are lots of other highlights in the trailer, and we've included screenshots of all the big moments in the gallery below, from Nick Fury meeting with Robert Redford's mysterious suit character to better looks at Mackie in action as The Falcon. Take a look at the gallery below and let us know what other details you noticed, and we'll leave you with what might be my favorite image in the trailer. As the recent poster clearly realized, Chris Evans' rear end is a national treasure.
