WATCH: New Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trailer Lands

October 24th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Cap’s back… 

The tone of this movie seems completely different from its predecessor, The First Avenger, and even from The Avengers itself.  It feels like a present day political thriller, shot in crystal clear HD, the sepia tones of the first film switched out for a colder blue hue.  Even Scarlett Johnson’s Black Widow seems to have her serious serious face on, and – has her hair deflated slightly each time she’s appeared in a Marvel movie? Other highlights include Cap jumping out of a Quinjet – sans parachute, A fleet of Helicarriers rising into the sky, Robert Redfords Agent Alexander Pierce looking shifty and some neat battle scenes between the stars and stripes adorned hero and The Winter Soldier himself – who epicly catches Caps shield with his robo-arm.

Then of course we see what happens when Tony Stark isnt around to fix a turbine on a Helicarrier like in last years The Avengers.  Basically – stuff go boom.

The Winter Soldier crashes into cinemas on March 26th in the UK and April 4th in the US.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
