If Marvel decided to stop releasing TV spots and trailers for 'Captain America 2,' we probably wouldn't complain. After all, we've been sold on this movie since the moment it was announced - we just want to know when we can get in line. Regardless, they've gone ahead and unleashed another lengthy TV spot and we've gone ahead and watched it. And it still looks really good.
This spot puts most of its focus on the Winter Soldier, the new and deadly villain with a personal mission against S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America. Comic fans know the details of this character's past and his relationship with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), but we'll play coy, just in case you've managed to stay spoiler-free so far. With his robotic arm, creepy mask and skill with all kinds of weaponry, he looks like a formidable foe for Cap and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Can one-third of the Avengers take him down? Well, yeah. They are the good guys after all.
This is a rather long preview for a TV spot and it has us wondering how much of the final film has been spoiled. Anyone with a basic knowledge of modern movies can watch this footage and form a rough outline of the final cut in his head. However, both 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World' seemed to show too much in their trailers but ultimately held the best surprises back for theaters. We hope the same is true here.
'Captain America 2' opens on April 4, 2014.
