The 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Trailer Is Here

Marvel unveiled the first trailer for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" on Thursday, allowing fans to get an early taste of what to expect from the April 2014 release.

"There's a very strong connection in the narrative between the events of the end of 'Avengers' that drive this film -- and there's a very strong hand off to 'Avengers 2' at the end of this movie," co-director Joe Russo (who made the film with his brother, Anthony) told HuffPost Entertainment earlier this year. "And [Marvel head] Kevin Feige's whole thing is that this is the biggest bridge of all of Phase 2 movies; it really is. It does involve the most amount of Avengers of any of the films in Phase 2, and there's a very big shift in the universe at the end of this movie."
