The first official trailer has been released for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel’s upcoming Captain America sequel. It’s certainly an action-packed marketing piece. Thankfully, it doesn’t give much of the film’s plot away. We’re given a look at the titular villain and witness the downfall of the Helicarrier. We even get a quick glimpse of some new characters, like Anthony Mackie’s The Falcon and Robert Redford’s Alexander Pierce. There’s a hell of a lot going on in these two and a half minutes; no wonder Captain America says he’s too busy to date.
