Captain America: The Winter Soldier is still about a month away, but you can watch a full scene from it right now.
Marvel has released a 4 minute clip from the beginning of the movie which shows Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) storming a hijacked cargo ship. You’ll also see Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo) and Georges Batroc (Georges St. Pierre). It’s about 3 minutes of sequential footage ending with a minute-long montage and it’s all awesome. Check it out below.
Thanks to Fandango for the clip.
If you read my recap of the film’s first 10 minutes, you’ll know this is the second scene in the movie. It also feels shorter here than it did then. I can’t say for sure if it’s truncated, but it might be. Either way, the place it ends is the same place the footage I saw ended. Here’s my description of what happens before this:
Fade in on a beautiful Washington D.C. morning. A man named Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) is running around the National Mall when another man flies by him at five times his speed. “On your left,” Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) says not one, not twice, but three times as he continues to lap Wilson. When they finish their runs, Wilson jokes about how fast Rogers was running and they introduce themselves. Wilson knows who Rogers is and relates to him a bit because he’s also a solider. The two chat about the changes in society and Wilson recommends a record: “Marvin Gaye, 1972, Trouble Man.” He says it’s everything you’ve missed, all on one album. Rogers pulls out a notebook and says, “I’ll add it to the list.” We then cut to this “list.” “Steve Jobs,” “Star Wars/Trek,” and about 12 other things are on there. I’d report more of them but I was laughing too hard. Rogers has watched Star Wars; that half of the entry was crossed off.
Rogers gets an alert on his watch that it’s time to work. He says it was nice to meet Sam and Sam tells him if he’d ever like to stop by Sam’s job to impress the receptionist, that would be great. He laughs as a black Corvette pulls up. Inside is Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), who rolls down the window and asks the guys if they know where the Smithsonian is. “I’m looking for a fossil.” Wilson smiles, flirts for a second. Rogers says, “you can’t run everywhere.” The ‘Vette speeds away.
Then it’s this scene.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4. We’ll have much more about the film as we get closer to release.
