6 Things We Can't Wait to See in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

The first trailer has launched from this Marvel Phase Two adventure. From a nose-diving Helicarrier to Falcon taking flight, these are the can't miss moments.

The third chapter of Marvel Phase Two is on its way April 4, 2014. As Thor: The Dark World gets ready to launch in theaters across the country in just 14 days, Disney has unleashed the first footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And it promises to be one of the biggest movies seen in the Marvel Universe thus far. The trailer does not disappoint.

Chris Evans returns as Steve Rogers, a World War II super soldier still out of time and having to deal with the trials and tribulations of our current decade. With the help of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Steve must once again suit up as Captain America, joining former ally, assassin Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and newcomer Falcon (Anthony Mackie) to take down a shady S.H.I.E.L.D. agent played by Hollywood icon Robert Redford. It's a thriller that has been described as Marvel's version of Three Days of the Condor. The plot of that film follows a mild mannered CIA researcher who finds all of his co-workers dead and must fight to find who is responsible, and who is truly on his side.

As we queue up this first look footage to obsessively watch it again and again this morning, we thought we'd share our favorite moments from this action packed two minutes of Marvel bliss. We loved the first Captain America: The First Avenger, and we can't wait to see this new one! Here are the 5 Things We Can't wait to see in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

1 Elevator Fight!

Elevator

Steve Rogers takes on an elevator full of bad guys, decimating all of them with his super strength and agile fighting ability. It's supposed to be one of the best fight scenes choreographed for any of the Marvel movies this far, and proves why Captain America remains one of our most fascinating heroes. Heck, he doesn't even need his shield for this close combat. His assets are truly a gift to mankind.

2 The Helicarrier Takes a Nosedive!

Helicarrier

There are a lot of aerial fight scenes promised in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but one of the biggest set pieces finds the iconic Helicarrier from Marvel's The Avengers taking a deep dive into the ground. How spectacular will the crash be? We'll have to wait and see, but we know Steve is safe as he jumps off the back bay door just in the nick of time.

3 Falcon Takes Flight!

Falcon

Speaking of Ariel fight scenes, Falcon has super-powered rockets, turning him into a bad ass Iron Man that soars through the sky at incredibly fast rates of speed. This isn't the winged wonder we know from the comic books, and don't call him a sidekick. As seen here, Falcon takes on a couple of humongous aircrafts all by himself. How much of an asset will he prove to be? We'll have to wait and find out.

4 Captain America and Black Widow: Will They or Won't They?

Black Widow

Forget Tony and Pepper, Steve and Natasha are the true power couple of the Marvel Universe. There is some mighty fine flirting at the beginning of this trailer, as Natasha teases Steve about his dating habits. We know from set photos that the two eventually share a kiss on an elevator, but are they doing it under the guise of secrecy, to sneak past some angry S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives? Or do they truly have feelings for one another. The trailer hints that this may be one of the biggest 'will they or wont they' romances seen on screen, as they can tease it out through a couple of movies. We think they make an awesome couple, and can't wait to see if they really hook up!

5Robert Redford as the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Robert Redford

He's one of our greatest living actors, and that he has decided to be in a Marvel movie means a lot. He comes on hard and fast as a friend of Steve Rogers, but we know there is something sinister hiding behind those eyes. Just how dangerous is this guy? And how many of Roger's friends will end up dead at his hand? He wants to build a better world by tearing the old one down. Will Captain America become his biggest enemy?

6 Captain America Vs. The Winter Soldier

Winter Soldier

Bucky Barnes used to be Steve's best friend. Now he's at the top of his most wanted list. After boldly taking out Nick Fury, remaining cool as a cucumber, The Winter Soldier sets out to take on Steve face to face. We see them fighting just a tiny bit, but the teaser's biggest tease of all comes when Bucky grabs Cap's mighty shield out of the air with just four fingers, stopping it from slicing off his head. This is one bad guy we don't want to mess with.

Are you as excited as we are? Were there any other moments that truly engaged your sensibilities as a Marvel fanboy? Or does this look like a big steaming pile of Steve Rogers? Let us know what you think...

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Joss Whedon.

    @themoviefanatic maybe he lost his finger when he fell off the train in the first avenger

    12 months agoby @undeadslayer4Flag

  3. Sean

    @undeadslayer4 Good question, Maybe he has less then 10 fingers and that metal glove on his left hand, he uses it and the finger parts of the glove he has some way of moving them. But, with no actual fingers inside of his metal glove. That's just my guess though.

    @undeadslayer4 Sam Jackson only had a nine picture deal with Marvel so I wont be surprised when they kill him off and let Maria Hill take over (like they did in the comics).

    The trailer is killer. Looks awesome. Can't wait!!!! I remember posting pictures from the set for a while. Looks like it's coming together nicely.

    In the pic above, you can even see he has all 5 fingers on both hands..?...Well I believe I am able to count 5 on each hand... But one arm could be fully artificial if they choose to go the route of the comics.

    12 months agoby @gandoffFlag

  17. Gandoff

    @balanorange In the comics, Bucky lost a entire arm before being found frozen after Baron Zemo's drone crashed. Believing he killed Cap and Bucky. A Russian General and his crew found him to turn him into the Winter Soldier. In the movie, he fell from a cliff while in a battle on a train. And I did not see him loose a finger, let alone arm. But I could see his arm becoming to damaged from either cold or the impact of the fall.

    @ghostman and ya i agree she looks better in this one

    12 months agoby @undeadslayer4Flag

  20. undeadslayer4

    @ghostman oh i get it its like Red 2 when hopkins faked his death and i havent watched IM2 in a long so i guess im not used to seeing her like that

    12 months agoby @undeadslayer4Flag

  21. Ghostman

    @undeadslayer4 Doesn't mean he died. It's called editing to make you think Fury was in that vehicle. Even if he was "killed", they wouldn't show a spoiler in a movie trailer. Besides, he could have survived the crash. And to answer your second question, does it really matter? I mean come on, she had long hair in Iron Man 2, short and curly hair in The Avengers, and short, straight hair in this movie (which in my opinion looks the best).

    12 months agoby @ghostmanFlag

  22. undeadslayer4

    @ghostman now can u please explain to me why widow has straight hair not her usual curly hair

    12 months agoby @undeadslayer4Flag

  23. undeadslayer4

    @ghostman "After boldly taking out Nick Fury, remaining cool as a cuc*mber, The Winter Soldier sets out to take on Steve face to face" is this good enough for u

    12 months agoby @undeadslayer4Flag

  24. Ghostman

    @undeadslayer4 where does it say that Nick Fury was killed off? Highly doubt that will ever happen.

    Wish Black Widow was actually RUSSIAN. Nice article though.

    The first film was dull and boring!! I just hope the 2nd one is not as long winded!!

    @skywise what they killed off fury are they out of their mind and wtf does widow have straight hair

    12 months agoby @undeadslayer4Flag

  29. B. Alan Orange

    @gandoff The Winter Soldier is missing a pinkie. Happened when he fell over the cliff in First Avenger. Come on! Everyone knows that!

    12 months agoby @balanorangeFlag

  30. Gandoff

    @skywise I thought the same thing... But their connection, being Hawkeye's and Widows, may have been more out of a brother/sister kind of thing. She loved him and was grateful for him helping her get out of the bad life.

    As for the number 6... I doubt it was 4 fingers.. His thumb more likely was under the shield when he caught it and not seen.
