Turning down dates set up by Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and jumping out of planes without a parachute, Chris Evans' Steve Rogers is still living dangerously. But that will be all to the good as the story gets darker, with Rogers soon doubting S.H.I.E.L.D's leadership and facing new threats from the titular Winter Soldier, who in a heartbreaking twist sees his supposedly dead friend Bucky (Sebastian Stan) cybernetically augmented, brainwashed and turned into a lethal assassin. Luckily though he has Anthony Mackie's Falcon, who looks to be on his side.
With plenty of car crashes, explosions and the Helicarrier crashing out of the sky to really put things in perspective, this looks to not only deliver on the action quotient, but also deliver the 1970s style paranoia thriller we've been promised.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Community), with Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained), Emily VanCamp (Carriers), Cobie Smulders (Safe Haven) and Frank Grillo (Zero Dark Thirty) rounding out the cast, Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits UK cinemas on 26 March 2014.
