This sequel to Captain America First Avenger darkens the character Steve Rogers (by comparison) with the easier morality and story tone of the first film. While being steadily manipulated to ease his way into the 21st century, Rogers responds by breaking lose from the carefully constructed inner world of SHEILD and teams with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and sets out to defeat a mysterious assassin called 'the Winter Soldier.' Meanwhile Nick Fury is shot dead and his last words to Rogers are to 'trust no one.'
