New Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trailer Brings The Falcon And Fanboy Giddiness Ensues

A new trailer debuted for Captain America: The Winter Solder (2014) to tie-in with the Super Bowl TV spot and I am full of glee at the moment.

It was 3 years ago that I was reacting to another Super Bowl TV spot for the first Captain America film.

This trailer shows quite a few more details but what really pleases me is that The Falcon (Sam Wilson) is shown in scenes with Steve Rogers both in and out of costume. Anthony Mackie plays The Falcon and the guy was great in Pain and Gain (2013). I have high hopes for him as he brings this important character from the Cap universe into the Marvel cinematic one.

I grew up mainly on the modern era Captain America and The Falcon stuff from Jack Kirby so I feel like I am getting what I've always wanted as a fan now. That's not to say that I didn't love Captain America: The First Avenger (20111) but that I am just really happy we're now going to see a Cap adventure set in the modern world.
