Captain America: The Winter Soldier, opens April 4.

A new Disney featurette sheds light on one of Captain America’s toughest foes, the Winter Solider. So who is this guy? He’s one of the more obscure Marvel villains, but he packs a tremendous punch from a cyborg arm.

Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) awakens some 70 years after the end of World War II and discovers a new world and strange new technologies.

He kicking back in Washington, D.C., when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague is attacked and he learns that a conspiracy is afoot that threatens the nation.

He teams up with Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, (Scarlett Johansson) and they begin to unravel the mystery. They’re joined by a new Marvel character, The Falcon (Anthony Mackie).

When the going gets tough, the villains get tougher and recruit the Winter Soldier.

“One of the best Captain America stories in the comics over the past 20 years is a storyline called The Winter Solder by Ed Brubaker,” says Producer Kevin Feige in the featurette.

“The Winter Soldier is a deadly assassin. His identity is literally masked in this film,” he adds.

Check out the featurette below. The movie hits theaters April 4, distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter for the latest Captain America updates.
