With a month to go until the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel has released the first full clip from the film to get audiences pumped for the Star-Spangled Patriot’s return. In this footage, we see Cap (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and some fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agents infiltrate a hijacked ship to take down Batroc the Leaper (Georges St-Pierre).
Though the jokey dialogue that Marvel is known for is still present, the tone here is a bit more serious than the Thor and Iron Man movies. This helps add tension to the scene, along with some smooth action and impressive special effects.
Attached to the end of the three-minute clip is a new trailer for the film that shows us what we can expect from The Winter Soldier. Unlike the overbearing marketing campaign for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, details about The Winter Soldier are being played pretty close to the chest, which is rare in today’s climate. Don’t be surprised if there are a few shocking plot twists involved here that the studio doesn’t want getting out.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4.
