The biggest problem: the idea is just plain stupid.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

The whole "Nick Fury, Jr." thing in the recent comics is, of course, an excuse to bring the comics more in line with the far more famous and widely known movie version of Fury (since comics are read by tens of thousands at most while hit movies are seen by tens of millions at least). So it doesn't make much sense to expect the movies to imitate the comics' imitation of the movies. It's kind of getting the causality backward.

And yeah, it's a contrived idea, but I can understand the comics' reasons for doing it. Heck, I've gotten so used to the modern image of Fury that seeing him as a white guy seems strange to me now. The comics are following the lead of the more popular medium it inspired, just as Superman adopted the Daily Planet, Jimmy Olsen, and kryptonite from the radio show, Batman adopted Harley Quinn from the animated series, and so forth. (Though some such attempts have less staying power, like Wonder Woman's abortive return to a WWII setting in response to the first season of the '70s TV series, or the comics Spider-Man's acquisition of movie-style organic webshooters which were virtually never used or mentioned again after the storyline in which they were introduced.)

Filming at Marvel Studios in LA is underway.

Redford says that he plays the "Head of S.H.I.E.L.D."?

Intersting. Fury certainly didn't seem to answer to anyone other than the Council in Avengers. Perhaps a former director, one with experience with the Winter Soldier? Or maybe he'll wear an eye-patch and SLJ will be his son.

If they were to do the Nick Fury Sr./Nick Fury Jr. thing, I wonder if they'll modify it slightly to make it more of a codename rather than a biological relationship.

I was wondering if he was going to be a new member of the Council from Avengers.

First official image and synopsis











“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.

Squee!

For some reason I'm more excited about this movie than I am any of the other Phase Two films (not including The Avengers 2, of course).

I'm definitely the most excited about this movie vs all the others (until they bring Doctor Strange into the mix).

Some concept art


Winter Soldier









Looks like the fighter jet scene will be pretty big




Also, are the Captain America movies going to be known for getting old hollywood male legends?

First Tommy Lee Jones and now Redford. Who next, Clint eastwood?

I haven't been paying too close attention to this whole thing, but I'm happy to see that Black Widow will be playing a part in the story. Since she and Hawkeye are unlikely to get their own films, I hope they continue to make appearances in the other characters' films.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

Of course, as I'm sure has been mentioned somewhere in this thread, Natasha is an important part of the Winter Soldier's backstory in the comics, so her inclusion only makes sense.

BTW, that's the Falcon concept art in my current avatar.
