Leaked footage from Marvel’s Captain America 2 recently found its way online.
Folks who decided to catch Thor: The Dark World in theaters this weekend enjoyed five minutes from directors Anthony and Joe Russo’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Not surprisingly, it didn’t take long for this footage to surface on the internet.
Of course, you’re not going to get theater-quality video and sound from the clip embedded below. It was seemingly captured by someone with a video camera in the audience, which means the picture is incredibly washed out and the audio is far from crystal clear. However, it will do the trick if you can’t make it to the neighborhood multiplex this weekend.
Even if you scoff at the quality of the leaked Captain America 2 footage, it’s hard not to get excited about some of the set pieces and action sequences the Russos have lined up for the sequel. If you’re curious to check it out, then don’t sleep on it. Marvel Studios and Disney could yank this clip at any moment.
Here’s what Captain America: The Winter Soldier is all about:
“After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ finds Steve Rogers — also known as Captain America — living quietly in Washington, DC, 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.”
But wait, there’s more:
“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.”
Of course, heading to the theater to see the new footage during a screening of director Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World shows that you support Marvel Studios and their cinematic endeavors. What’s more, the footage looks absolutely spectacular on the big screen. Captain America fans should definitely see the clip in theaters.
Here’s the leaked footage from Captain America 2. Big thanks to the folks at Worst Previews for risking everything to host the clip.
The Winter Soldier arrives in theaters on April 4, 2014. Are you planning to catch Captain America 2 on the big screen next year?
