WATCH: full trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The latest instalment of Marvel's Avengers franchise features Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Redford

The full trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been unveiled, with Chris Evans once again donning the stars and stripes. The new trailer also features glimpses of Scarlett Johansson as SHIELD agent Black Widow, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, Anthony Mackie as Falcon and Robert Redford as the head of SHIELD.

The Winter Soldier joins Steve Rogers (the Captain's alter-ego) two years after the events of Avengers Assemble, attempting to assimilate into modern culture but sucked into the world of superhero derring-do when a fellow SHIELD operative is assaulted. Although perhaps 'derring-do' isn't quite the tone for this instalment – new directors Anthony and Joe Russo (taking over from the first film's Joe Johnston) are aiming to replicate the style of a 1970s political thriller rather than WWII action adventure (the inclusion of Redford in the cast is a major nod in this direction).

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due for release on Fri 28 Mar 2014.

Just as the titular hero (Evans) is adjusting to life in the 21st century, SHIELD turns out to have been infiltrated, and he must team up with Black Widow (Johansson) and Falcon (Mackie). A highly enjoyable conspiracy thriller with stunning action sequences, outstanding performances and a clever, morally complex plot.
