Who is Captain America?
Ok you really should know this one, but just incase: Captain America aka Steve Rogers is a solider who is enhanced by the US government and turned into a 'super solider'. After crashing his plane in the Arctic, he wakes up in a fake 1940s hospital and after running out into Times Square he realises he's awoken some 70 years later.
When does Captain America: the Winter Solider take place?
It takes place two years after the events of the 'Avengers' movie in which we saw Captain America recruited to SHIELD and fighting alongside other Avengers. We are told Steve Rogers is now “living quietly in Washington, DC and trying to adjust to the modern world. “
Who is the Winter Solider?
This was the big question. In the trailer we hear that “most of the intelligence community doesn't believe he exists, those who do call him the winter solider.” The trailer does not answer the question or give us a clean, full shot of his face. However you might want to take another look at some of the other characters in the first Captain America, the Winter Soldier might be someone Rogers has encountered before.
