“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is coming to theatres April 4, 2014. The trailer aired Thursday Oct. 24. What are audiences to expect for the comic-based sequel? 

Recapping “Captain America: The First Avenger,” (spoilers ahead) Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers who is rejected by the military during World War II. Instead of joining the army, Rogers is recruited by Dr. Erskine for a project titled “Project Rebirth.” Rogers is then filled with strength and power, becoming Captain America. Meanwhile, in Germany, a rival scientist sends a man to see if Dr. Erskine’s project was successful. When he learns that it was, he kills Dr. Erskine. Captain America must serve justice during the Nazi German regime. 

In the sequel’s trailer, Captain America/Steve Rogers is living in present-day Washington D.C. His mission is to protect S.H.I.E.L.D. after one of its members was attacked after its head leader played by Robert Redford asks for his help. Captain America teams up with the Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson. Surely there must be a romantic twist between the two involved. 

As the two team up, they become involved with world-threatening actions, which, of course, call for Captain America to save the world. Captain America and the Black Widow later join alliance with another superhero, the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) until they stumble upon a nemesis, The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). 

The trailer doesn’t reveal much more, but as usual with superhero/action movies, there are explosions, gun use, giant aircrafts and superhero uniforms. 

Be sure to view the trailer.
