Happy 5-Year Anniversary to Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

Recommended Videos

We are creatures of habit, and so is it surprising that we want to talk about Captain America: The Winter Soldier on its 5-year anniversary? Not in the slightest, at least to me. I stand by the idea that the Captain America trilogy is one of the best out there, and The Winter Soldier is still one of the greatest movies in the entire MCU.

The character development, the reveal of Bucky Barnes as the Winter Soldier, Steve’s struggle with that and coping? All of is fueled by a thrilling political plot that led many of us into our Marvel-loving lives. I came out of Winter Soldier a bigger Bucky Barnes fan than I was before, and I know I’m not alone in that. So, honoring the movie only seems right; we do owe a lot to it!

Many of us took to Twitter to share our love of the movie and what it means to us all still.

And the cosplay today is pretty on point.
