The countdown to Thor: The Dark World is slowly clicking down and the powers that be at Marvel and Disney‘s promotion and marketing departments are beginning to stir from their deep, dark pits into the glaring sunlit internet.  It’s not like I needed another reason to go see Thor: The Dark World, I’m already on the Asgardian bandwagon, but now I’ll get the added treat of seeing the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Although, most likely I’ll have already seen the teaser and full trailer on the internet. Thor: The Dark World opens internationally before the November 7th USA opening, and we all know some enterprising YouTuber will get their hands on some grainy, shaky phone footage.

You can’t beat seeing it on the big screen though, that’s often the time when people who might not have been planning to see the movie, or even knew it existed, make up their mind about seeing it or not.

Here’s a synopsis if your just now finding out about the sequel:

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L.
