Intense new Winter Soldier footage shows off that 'political thriller' edge

A new, extended TV spot for Winter Soldier has been released, showing off a ton of new footage. Yeah, this is definitely not your granddaddy’s Captain America.

The sequel, billed as a “political thriller” that bridges the gap between Avengers and Age of Ultron, definitely looks to live up to the billing. It looks to dig deep into the after-effect of The Avengers, and how that fundamentally changed the world.

All hell is breaking loose as S.H.I.E.L.D. comes under fire, and we get to see a lot more of that massive action and thriller style that we haven’t really seen before in a Marvel movie. Seriously, this trailer could almost double as an ambitious, big-budget Jack Ryan thriller (if there were any good ones that existed over the past decade or so). We mean that in a good way, just to show how this one is shaking up the comic genre.

Winter Soldier opens April 4. Until then, check out the new footage below:
