Captain America: The Winter Soldier Delivers Big Ideas, Bigger Explosions

Whether punching out Hitler or hanging up his shield, Captain America has always been a barometer for America’s political atmosphere, a reliable gauge for what’s on the minds of the nation. In his latest adventure, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he is again, standing as a voice of reason in a high-octane action drama that concerns itself with the all-too-pertinent debate of freedom versus security. Those who found the first Cap adventure distasteful in its hamminess will be pleased to know that CA:TWS contains nothing of the kind, being a grim-faced thrill ride with no time to talk and no room for cheese. The jokes in Winter Soldier are spare and barely land, a testament to the film’s hard edge. But, unlike some of its dark-and-gritty peers in the superhero genre, a touch of darkness serves this sequel well, working for its covert ops setting instead of against it.

Is the price of knowing SPOILERS a price you’re willing to pay?

The Mystery Behind Andrew Garfield and Batkid’s Canceled Oscar Appearance

The Academy Awards decided to go with a theme this year – heroes. They didn’t go overboard but did have a few moments where they celebrating heroes, both real and fictional. At one point, Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Chris Evans introduced a montage of film clips pertaining to the theme, but that’s not what was originally intended according to new reports.

Untouched Thor 2 Scene Features Tom Hiddleton Dressed as Captain America

If you’re confused, you might need a reminder (or explanation) that in this scene in Thor: The Dark World, Loki transforms himself into a likeness of Steve Rogers in the Captain America suit to needle Thor. Tom Hiddleston explains that this scene was filmed and then shown to Chris Evans, so that he could capture Loki as Cap in his own performance, “It’s him doing an impression of me doing an impression of him, and it’s brilliant.” On the contrary, Mr. Hiddleston, it’s Chris Evans doing an impression of your impression of Loki’s impression of Captain America. We need to go deeper.

But that still doesn’t explain why this scene required Tom Hiddleston to wear his own Captain America suit.
