When: April 4th
Average Anticipation Level: 4.31
You Say: “Why is this not a Widow movie?!?!?,” “I'm excited about a lot of films coming out this year, but I literally want to throw up when I remember Captain America: The Winter Soldier is about to come out,” “Please put this in my eyeballs immediately,” “I think it's going to be ground-breaking, no hyperbole,” “I'm mostly looking forward to seeing more of Black Widow,” “All I want is one outtake of Sebastian Stan (the Winter Soldier) singing ‘Let It Go.’”
Rebecca Says: I wasn't all that impressed by the first Captain America—it felt way, way too much just like a prequel to The Avengers for me, in a way that Thor, etc. didn't so much. But I'm still looking forward to Winter Soldier. The early reviews have been great.
Jill Says: I’ll admit, the first Captain America wasn’t as exciting for me as a fan because I hadn’t read any Steve Rogers stories, but it won me over with its charm. That said, I’m slightly worried about The Winter Soldier being too much like The Avengers, and not enough (or any) of what I loved the most about the first film, which was the World War II stuff. That said, Kevin Feige keeps saying Black Widow is a major part of the movie (even if they didn’t include her in the title) and that i’m certainly excited for. This will probably be opening weekend viewing.
Susana Says: I was very impressed with the first Captain America's handling of what could have been a very simply told, painfully outdated story, and while I'm a little worried that Winter Soldier might not have enough superheroic optimism mixed in with its spy-thriller, I'm very excited for it. Marvel's first African American superhero getting his screen due, Chris Evans’ charming Steve Rogers dealing with his time jump, and Black Widow, lots more Black Widow. Maybe enough Black Widow that Kevin Feige will stop teasing us and just announce that she's getting a solo film.
