More CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Praise From Ed Brubaker
Commending Marvel Studios' efforts on the script and perfecting the "Bucky stuff," hit the jump and check out The Winter Soldier comic writer Ed Brubaker's thoughts on the the Captain America sequel.
USA Today's latest Sunday Geekersation entry features a Q&A with Ed Brubaker about his upcoming supernatural noir comic book, Fatale. As the comic writer's most acclaimed Marvel story arc is hitting the big screen next summer, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Brubaker talked a bit about the anticipated adaptation. "I read the script and I was really blown away by it," he said. "The tone of it and the Bucky stuff is so perfect and the way I'd want it to be, I was so thrilled to see that. But to me the biggest thing, too, is it's the first time Marvel has put out a movie where there's a specific book the title of the movie relates to. And now they're doing that with Avengers: Age of Ultron. They're putting out a hardcover collection of Captain America: Winter Soldier and that's because that movie is coming out." Ed Brubaker continues, "That is the first time Marvel has one specific book to point people to, as opposed to when X-Men: First Class came out and there's 15 trade paperbacks and people who see the movie don't know which one to pick up. So it's exciting, as the guy who gets royalties for that book."
In other Captain America: The Winter Soldier news, Singaporean actor Chin Han, who plays World Security Councilman Yen, talked more with The Straits Times about his role in the Marvel sequel and how it differentiates from The Dark Knight. "[Christopher Nolan's movie] was more a crime movie than a superhero movie," he said. "Captain America is more true to its comic origins and doing it was a lot of fun. I got to do some action and it was a fun way to spend one spring."
Meanwhile, the official Captain America: The Winter Soldier site recently went live with a preview of what everyone assumed was composer Henry Jackman's official score. However, Slash Film received confirmation from Disney reps that the musical clip is actually "library music." It has been speculated that the music is actually from the first offical trailer, which debuts near Thor: The Dark World's early November release. Anyhow, IMDB has revealed a minor addition to The Winter Soldier cast: Battle: Los Angeles actor Adetokumboh M'Cormack is set to play Machete in the movie. The character is an established Marvel villain and, in the comics, he was a member of Batroc's Brigade. And of course, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre plays Batroc the Leaper in the movie.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier.
