Outside of a trailer and a few scenes screened at conventions, very little is known about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We know S.H.I.E.L.D. plays a part, we know Bucky comes back as the titular villain, there’s some flirtation between Cap and Black Widow, and the film is the primary precursor to Avengers: Age of Ultron. But why and how does that all fit together? We’ll have to wait until April 4 to find out.
One character who plays a particularly mysterious role is Brock Rumlow, aka Crossbones, who is portrayed by Frank Grillo. Up to now the actor, best known for his work with Joe Carnahan, hasn’t revealed too much about his role. In a new interview though, he called The Winter Soldier an “origin story” for a lot of characters and says Crossbones could return in future Marvel movies. Read More »

Last week, when Kevin Feige was asked how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would interact with the films from Marvel Studios, he said “part of the fun they’re having with that show is that it inhabits the same universe, so if there’s a big event, there’ll be ripples.” One of the “ripples” we heard about soon afterwards was a promo crossover between Thor: The Dark World and the TV show. While no Thor characters will actually appear in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the story lines will connect, just in time for sweeps week.
Now the rumor is that Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is set for release on April 4, right in time for the end of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season, will also connect to the show. Read More »
Having seen and really enjoyed Thor: The Dark World, I can safely say I don’t remember one single 3D element. And I saw it in 3D. The glasses didn’t hurt or enhance the experience, and maybe Marvel knows that. So to get fans to pony up the extra few bucks for the 3D screenings of the film, out November 8, they’re attaching a five minute preview of next year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier to 3D screenings only.

Here’s the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in which Captain America really starts to come to grips with the messy politics of the modern world. (And also with relations with Black Widow, as a little opening banter shows.)
The warrior started to get a taste of things in The Avengers, but here he really comes up against the shadowy goals and motivations of the agency and government he works for. It’s not going to be the easiest learning experience for the guy, especially when he has to face a cybernetically enhanced killer, who works for the other side and has more than a tenuous connection to Cap’s past.
This trailer doesn’t mess around. You’ll see Cap in action; conversations with Robert Redford; Falcon flying, and the Winter Soldier doing his level best to take our hero out.
