Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)



Anthony Mackie to Play Falcon in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Yeah, so not only do we have the title of the Captain America sequel movie (which pretty much reveals who the enemy will be), but we also have the introduction of Falcon into the MCU. Still waiting for more info.

I'm definitely excited for this movie. Winter Soldier is one of my favorite comic arcs ever. Definitely going to be pumped for it.

I can't think of a more inauspicious opening date.

Another movie based off of a comic book series? Can't they give it a rest?

You realize this is Captain America II, right? And that people want to see it?

Winter Soldier, huh? Comic Book Fans should know what exactly that name means and who will be making an appearance. Wonder if they kept the Black Widow tie in from the comics. Comic book fans should know what I'm talking about there as well if they read Captain America before the Fear Itself event.

It is no different from disaster movies or romantic comedies. As long as they space things out and maintain quality, there are no issues.

Maybe you could try mailing Shaw Brothers and Golden Village, so they won't waste their money bringing the movie here?

Agreed. Mackie is a damn good actor but the costume will be the key.

Looking forward to the first trailer.

It is pretty amazing how many Marvel comics-based movies are being made these days.

A second Captain America movie on its way hot off the heels of the Avengers movie and not that long after the first Captain America movie.

Spiderman having a 3-movie chain, and already a new reboot.


This leaves me with two observations:

1) DC Comics is really getting left behind in Marvel's dust.

2) Part of me misses the days of Robocop, Terminator, Rambo, Rocky, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars. In other words, Hollywood doesn't seem to be producing Hollywood-Original Sci-fi/Action movie series anymore. And it seems obvious to me that them milking comic book franchises (and Transformers) for all their worth is the main reason why...

The last few DC comic adaptations aside from batman either bombed in the box office: Catwoman, Jonah Hex Superman Returns, Green Lantern did poorly. Watchmen did ok though.
Lets hope that the man of steel and JL movies will be decent

The times have changed. The movies that you mentioned were all from the late 70's or 80's and the audience these days are different than the people from 30 years ago.

Marvel has already thoroughly exhausted almost all of its top properties:

Spiderman (3, and now a reboot for 4)
X-Men (3, including a separate movie for Wolverine)
The Fantastic Four (2, including one focusing on The Silver Surfer)
Avengers (including solos for Thor, Iron Man, two for Hulk, and now two for Captain America)
Ghost Rider
Blade (two or three of these, IIRC)
Punisher (three separate ones, admittedly very different form each other and spread out over many years)
Daredevil
Elektra.

And I may well be forgetting something here.

DC, by comparison, has barely scratched their top properties. No WonderWoman. No Flash. No Teen Titans.

So you don't think audiences today would be willing to watch a Hollywood-original Action/Sci-fi movie series?

Don't forget about RED.

Maybe it's not about the audience, but more about the movie itself and the promotion. For example, Prometheus is supposed to be an original Hollywood sci-fi but due to a lackluster script many people/audience are let down by it. Its promotion saved it from tanking though.

I did mention audience because people have become more critical about movies these years , maybe because we have more accesible forms of media than the people of 30 years ago (like the very obvious internet). These days we can already see the trailers and read reviews of movies with a simple mouseclick.
Also think that people are less impressed by todays special effects (overabundance of CG) compared to people who saw practical effects back then.

The thing with Marvel, is that they had to get as many movies out as they can before the actors involved grow too old. I genuinely fear for the Ironman film franchise if RDJ one day had an accident and can't act anymore. Obviously at some point they can pull a Batman and just start replacing actors, but Marvel want to do that as little as possible.

Part of all these movies is also about building a universe; to introduce characters who would be free to appear and disappear in each other's films, and to have Avengers style crossover films. In essence this new round of films are all about setting up Avengers 2.
Another side effect is that Ironman 3 would be allowed to have magic; IM 1 and 2 were grounded in SciFi, but Avengers sneaked Magic into Tony's world, so all of a sudden some guy with magic rings would now be far less jarring.

That's an interesting point. If that's part of Marvel's motivation here, then I certainly respect that, and agree with it.

On the whole, I much prefer what Marvel is doing over what DC is doing.
