A teaser for a teaser? That is now a thing in Hollywood, as Marvel has released a 16-second preview of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier spot that will run during the Super Bowl.
The preview, which was posted on Facebook and YouTube, teases the identity of the Winter Soldier in the film’s title. Clearly, he has a beef with Captain America and more explosions and action are promised for the full Super Bowl spot. Back in October, Marvel released the first trailer for the film, which showed off the sequel’s more political tone. While The First Avenger was more of a tribute to the old 1940s war films, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have said that THe Winter Soldier is structured more like a 1970s political thriller.
Marvel must be pleased with the Russos, since the two are reportedly in talks to direct a third Captain America film. It hasn’t been geenlighted yet, but it will be if The Winter Soldier is a hit.
The studio also released character posters featuring Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Chris Evans as Cap.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4 and also features Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Robert Redford and Anthony Mackie. The full teaser will be shown during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
