"Captain America's past comes to the present in sequel..."
Star-spangled supersoldier Steve Rogers fought the good fight in World War II in the movie Captain America: The First Avenger, and is getting a full taste of modern-day politics and agendas in the sequel.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in theaters April 4, 2014, catches up with Cap (Chris Evans) after he saves New York City in The Avengers and throws the Marvel Comics hero — clad in a spiffy new outfit — into the super-spy intrigue of S.H.I.E.L.D. with old friends Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).

The first trailer for the sequel is online at iTunes Thursday at noon ET/9 a.m. PT.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo are aiming for a 1970s thriller vibe akin to Three Days of the Condor, but they're not skimping on big, superhero sequences — Cap brawls in the tight confines of an elevator full of bad guys, for example, and a massive S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier takes a spectacular nosedive.

"There's nobody better at that kind of stuff than Marvel if you're going to attempt to pull that off and go for it," Joe Russo says. "We all tried to up the ante with what happens in this movie in terms of what's come before, and I think we've done that."

"Joss Whedon, Shane Black, Edgar Wright, James Gunn [and Ryan Coogler]… For as much flack as people give Marvel that's a pretty freaking great group of filmmakers. Kind of feel spoiled."
