Captain America Movie Setting Up "Winter Soldier"?
Is the Winter Soldier coming to The Marvel Movie Universe through the Captain America Movie. Make the jump to find out if so.
With filming starting in less than two months, June 28th, and after the many rewrites, Marvel must have come up with a solid story, and star-studded cast. Which now includes, Chris Evans as Captain Amreica, Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, and last Sebastian Stan as Bucky.
Bucky being the main topic, CHUD may have received an exclusive from the production of The First Avenger: Captain America, involving Bucky becoming the Winter Soldier character, first featured in the comics, now in a potential Captain America sequel.
-Warning Possible Spoilers-
Sources inside the The First Avenger: Captain America production are now telling me that the Captain America movie continuity is being developed to leave the door open for the Winter Soldier to appear, should there be a sequel. Bucky will be seemingly killed when Cap is frozen in ice, as he was in the original post-WWII Captain America stories, but he'll take on some serious injuries along the way, allowing him to show up again in the future with a cyborg arm.
Previous thinking at Marvel Studios had Bucky surviving the war and meeting Cap in the modern day as an old man, which is how it happened in the Ultimate universe, a rebooted version of Marvel continuity that's been influential on some of Marvel's approach about the movies. I've actually heard some contradictory versions of what happens to Bucky, which leads me to believe that there's been some back and forth on the issue (I've also heard that, as of a couple of weeks ago, the script for The First Avenger: Captain America was anything but locked down), but my source feels fairly certain that right now The Winter Soldier is being, if not planned, left available.
