To say Marvel Studios has kicked the marketing machine for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER into high gear is an understatement. They’ve taken the machine, rebuilt it from the ground up with parts designed specifically to appeal to the geek inside of all of us, put the machine back together, filled it with enough high octane geek fuel to keep it running till time to get everyone psyched the f*ck out for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and they’ve launched it at the masses with little to no regard as to how much awesome they can actually take.
Don’t believe me? I dare you to scroll down and check out the plethora of WINTER SOLDIER goodies I’ve procured for you and not totally geek out. I dare you. I dare you because it can’t be done. It just can’t. Even non-Cap fans will/should agree this flick looks AMAZING. Cap (Chris Evans) kicking ass for freedom, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) dropping quips and doing her sexy pose/kill thing, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D. head honcho Alexander Pierce (ROBERT REDFORD!) going full ‘70s political paranoia thriller, Winter Soldier (Um… Is it cool to reveal he’s played by Sebastian Stan?) tearing EVERYONE a new one, Falcon (Anthony Mackie) rocking double semi-automatics and soaring through the sky using robo-wings, a fleet of helicarriers, war in the streets, fist fights in elevators, flashbacks to WWII featuring the Howling Commandos, a possible post-credits stinger that sets up THE AVENGERS 2 with the first appearance of [SPOILER ALERT!!!] Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and plot twists and turns so shocking they will resonate through the entire Marvel Studios film universe including AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. What’s not to love?!?
