This news does help my confidence in TWS. Not that I wasn't confident, I'm just more confident now.

It's certainly encouraging. Who would have thought that one of the corniest of all the well known comic book characters would end up having some of the best films of the bunch?

Yeah. The Cap movie was probably the Phase One movie I was the most unsure of before I saw, but it actually ended up being one of my favorites.

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

There's a poster for the UK that combines the other posters into one multi-character poster.

And you can tell that they shouldn't have been combined into a single image, because now I can't figure out what Black Widow is looking at or why Nick Fury is looking over Cap's head or where the illumination is coming from.

Do we know yet just how big of a role he's playing? I'd been assuming it was probably going to be a fairly small supporting role, while the movie mainly focuses on Cap, Black Widow, and The Winter Soldier.

In Avengers, Black Widow looked really tough. But in all the pics and clips I've seen she looks kind of on the weak and frail side. I don;t know that's the vibe I'm getting.

Maybe being around a guy who wears grandpa clothes does that to you?

It's because they make patriotism and self sacrifice seem noble and not ridiculous like you see in Michael Bay movies.

It also helps that they found the perfect actor for the role.. Evans really makes Captain America work which is the main point given the absolute ridiculous comicbook over the topness of the first movie (Nazi's with a Rad Skull and superweapons.. only in comicbooks ).

I think the big thing is they managed to make Captain America seem more universal, which is a hard thing to do. Granted, it's easier if you make your values the opposite of the Nazi party. But, if you think about it, he's a character created to silence pacifists and build up support for war, so he had to go a long way to overcome this jingoism.
