Well, it’s finally here—after an annoying “trailer for the trailer” and a couple of lo-res pics, as well as a semi-intriguing poster, we finally have the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

And hey, there’s the fun stuff here—SHIELD is getting darker and more fascist with each and every film, Robert Redford shows up to pick up a paycheck and trade off a few Three Days of the Condor references, Black Widow has discovered a hair iron and has become even more of a badass, and look, they even gave Captain America a semi-cool suit for once.

But then there’s the Falcon, Anthony Mackie’s character who can fly as well as speak telepathically with birds.  Again: he can fly and speak telepathically with birds.  For some reason, I’ll accept a super-soldier frozen in ice for more than 50 years, or a time-and-space hopping demi-god with a big hammer, or even the idea that Hawkeye could ever be cool, but I have a hard time swallowing this.  Check it out:

In Captain America: The Winter Solider, Cap is living in Washington D.C. when he must team up with Black Widow and the Falcon to take down his former friend, Bucky, who has now been brainwashed into an assassin known as The Winter Soldier.

What do you think of the trailer?
