Chris Evans as Capt. America meets the future and doesn’t like what he sees.

Chris Evans shows that even the 21st century can’t keep a World War II-era superhero down for long in the first trailer for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the follow up to “The Avengers” and 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

The superhuman soldier wakes up in modern-day American after being frozen in a state of suspended animation for 70 years.

Captain America is reawakened to join Nick Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. Samuel L. Jackson reprises the role and is joined by Robert Redford, who plays head honcho Alexander Pierce.

He may be a little rusty, but war vet Steve Rogers, aka Capt. America, quickly adapts to new technology, although he isn’t about to surrender his special vibranium shield. It hasn’t lost its power to deflect bullets or perform other amazing feats.

In a play off today’s headlines, S.H.I.E.L.D is facing a shadowy threat from assassins and hidden enemies involved in a worldwide conspiracy. Like today’s terrorist threat, the crime-fighting organization must get proactive or else.

That doesn’t sit well with Steve’s old-fashioned values, but he learns quickly for the need to strike first after a friend is attacked. Steve quickly goes into action and shows he hasn’t lost any of his moves when he’s cornered by a elevator full of killers.

Scarlett Johansson appears as Black Widow in one scene, plus a new character, Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), a masked man who has connections to Steve’s past emerges.

The movie also stars Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo and Cobie Smulders. It hits theaters in April 2014. In the meantime, check out the trailer and then follow TheImproper on Twitter keep up with all of the latest Capt. American updates.
