Cap is back. Marvel unveiled some new footage of the highly-anticipated sequel "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" at Disney's D23 expo last weekend, showing early looks at cast members Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Anthonie Mackie as The Falcon. Of course, Chris Evans led the charge as the shield-throwing Avenger of the title. So far, the film appears to be a grittier take on the character, influenced more by '70s paranoid thrillers than WWII-era adventure films. Start getting excited, Marvel fans.
