The Marvel franchise on cinema is very active. But to be honest, some of the movies are far better than others. And Captain America is certainly one of their best. The sequel is coming on our screens this April. Here is the second trailer of The Winter Soldier.
If most of the footage was already in the first trailer, here we have a better look at Falcon and on S.H.I.E.L.D. implication.
The Winter Soldier
The main plot is of course to understand who is this new threat, the Winter Soldier. But if you look at the cast on IMDB, or if you read the Comics, you know that the Winter Soldier is Bucky Barnes, one of Captain America companions during WWII.
In the Comics, Bucky is Captain America sidekick and both of them are in the plain when it crashes. Bucky’s body was found and revived by the Russians. His wounded arm was replaced by a bionic one and as he have lost his memory, he was indoctrinated to become the Winter Soldier. But this scenario is good for the time of the Cold War, so this will be something we are waiting for: how is the Winter Soldier introduced in modern days, especially after the first movie, Captain America: The First Avenger
Falcon and S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the Comics, Sam Wilson is a character related to Captain America and the Red Skull. So his is a nice introduction of a new Super Hero. Of course, he does not wear the fancy white and red outfit but more technological wings, and that is nice.
The S.H.I.E.L.D. is also a must-be in this movie. The Back Widow and the Winter Soldier are close characters as the Black Widow was trained by the Winter Soldier. In the movies, Natasha Romanova’s background is unclear, so we can expect they will somehow follow the Comics storyline. The trailer makes us think they did.
But when it comes to S.H.I.E.L.D., we don’t just expect skilled soldiers, since the Avengers, we saw they are able to deploy some nice toys. Here they are again : Helicarriers (yes, plural) or Quinjets (yes, plural again), one thing is sure, there will be a lot of explosions and destruction.
I was not really posting here about upcoming Super Heroes movies as I was a little disappointed by the Marvel universe on wild-screen. But maybe Captain America is one of those who are worth watching as it combines action and interesting plot.
We’ll see this in April.
