The Trailer for The Winter Soldier Will Change Your Life

Okay maybe the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Solider that was just released today won't change your life…but maybe it will.

I am officially, completely, and irrationally excited about the new Captain America movie for several reasons. First, it's based on Ed Brubaker's epic run on Captain America from the early 2000s. If you're looking for excellent source material, you can't do much better than this run. Second, the trailer shows Cap's costume is now based on his post-Winter Solider career when…well, if you haven't read the comics yet I don't want to spoil the movie for you. In any event, I really dig that costume and I'm glad it's featured in film. As much as I loved The Avengers, I didn't love Cap's costume in it. Just a bit too much…blue and not enough texture. Third, also from The Avengers, Chris Evans does NOT look like he's wearing a hair piece in this movie, unlike Joss Whedon's film. Never quite got why that happened.

So yeah...the trailer has me jazzed. The film looks to take what I enjoyed so much about Iron Man 3, a story deeply wrapped around the personal struggles of the protagonist), some draw dropping camera work in the action scenes, and moving the "doesn't anyone else find S.H.I.E.L.D.'s reach a little creepy?" story forward. If you haven't seen it yet, enjoy!
