ROUGH CUT (NO NARRATION) "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" continued its global promotional tour with the UK premiere at Westfield in London on Thursday (March 20). The cast, including actors Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans, entered the shopping centre through doors emblazoned with a Captain America symbol before greeting fans and talking to reporters. In "Winter Soldier", which is the second of the Captain America franchise and ninth in the Avengers franchise, Steve Rogers aka Captain America finds himself carrying out missions alongside The Black Widow (Johansson) for government agency S.H.I.E.L.D.. However, the agency turns out to have been compromised and soon Captain America, The Black Widow and their boss Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) find themselves targeted by their former friends - and the mysterious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). This outing marks the third for Evans as Captain America. When asked at the premiere what the most stressful thing about being the shield-toting superhero was, he replied "This!". Scarlett Johansson has kept tight-lipped on the promotional tour since reports came out claiming that the actress is pregnant. "Captain America: Winter Soldier" goes on release in the UK on March 26th.
