Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier trailer
Having personally thought that the first Captain America movie was the weakest of Marvel Phase one, I wasn’t particularly excited about seeing this trailer. Now that I’ve watched it I think that it’s a bit of a mixed bag.
Starting with the positive, the suit is so much better than the one in the Avengers and they seem to be addressing Captain America’s reluctance to enter the modern world. That could potentially be really interesting, plus there’s the action which seems to hold up to the usual Marvel standards.
Even though it seems like a smart move to keep Captain America heavily linked with SHIELD, the whole thing just undermines the TV series. Let’s face it, the effects on the show are pretty bad and this movie seems like it’s just going to make the significant difference in budgets even more obvious. It doesn’t make sense, why make a SHIELD TV show if Captain America 2 was basically going to be a SHIELD movie.
Then there’s the Winter Soldier who actually has to sit down and put make up around his eyes before he can go out and cause havoc…
Back on the bright side, it looks like we’re going to get lots more Black Widow and that’s always a plus.
