The event this evening had everyone gathering together with their families, biting their nails in anticipation.
No, not the Superbowl.
The highly anticipated, very mysterious reveal of the next movie Marvel has lined up, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Marvel released a teaser trailer for the teaser trailer about a week ago, getting fans riled up for the TV spot teaser they were to release some time during the Superbowl.
Ridiculous, I know, to make a teaser for a teaser. But it sure built up anticipation, and the second trailer did not disappoint. Filled with explosions, crashing planes, gun fights, and espionage, this is a film that is sure to fly past all expectations set by the previous film.
In fact, it’s already rumored to have done so well that the Russo brothers have been tentatively assigned to the next Captain America movie. Marvel doesn’t take commitments lightly (ie: making Chris Evans and other lead heroes including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, etc. sign a 6-movie package deal). So if they’re putting the Russo brother’s up for round two, this means Something. What that Something is, we will be finding out promptly on April 4.
As for me, I’m most excited about the interpersonal relationship between Captain America and his nemesis in this film, the Winter Soldier, who, shall I say, has a very interesting backstory.
Marvel does as Marvel likes, and thus, I suspect that we will perhaps get one more (or two, hopefully) trailers before the release of the movie, two months from now. Until then, all we can do is re-watch the trailer, and marvel (pun intended) at the amazing movie that is sure to push superhero movies to new heights.
