The Winter Soldier

Tales of Suspense #101 cover by Andrea Sorrentino

Tales of Suspense #101 Review: Great Character Interactions and High Action

Tales of Suspense #101 opens with the Winter Soldier and Hawkeye narrowly survive an explosion. Clint thinks it was the work of the Black Widow. Bucky doesn’t believe it. The two return to New York and link up with an old S.H.I.E.L.D contact who verifies that there is another player in the spy game taking […]

Secret Empire #10 Review: A Better Ending Than This Series Earned

This is it. This is the big one. In the wise words of Red Foxx: “I’m coming, Elizabeth.” Or at least, I would be if this were nearly as bad as I feared it would be. With Secret Empire #10, for the first time, Secret Empire actually surprised me. Considering this is the ending, that is […]

Why Marvel Should Bring Back The Thunderbolts

Jim Zub, Jon Malin, and Matt Yackey’s Thunderbolts is one of the best comics to come out in recent years. There, I said it. It’s the truth. Here we have a comic that perfectly balanced character and action, perfectly understood the characters and the spirit of the team, and had some of the most endearing […]

The Winter Soldier Saga In Only 3 And A Half Minutes

So who is the Winter Soldier? He’s Captain America’s long lost sidekick Bucky… we’ve seen it in two different films so far. But before Sebastian Stan put on the metal arm, it was a ground breaking storyline by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting. It involved Sharon Carter, Nick Fury, the Red Skull and the Cosmic […]

Captain America: Civil War B-Roll Shows Behind The Action

Love them or hate them, the big-budget superhero films always look amazing on the big screen. But I like to see behind the scenes at the raw footage. See how scenes are shot, how the stunts are done. Like the scene we’ve seen in the Captain America: Civil War trailer where The Winter Soldier has […]

The Winter Soldier And Falcon Invade Chicago

It’s Labor Day here in the U.S. so the movie news is a bit light… except for the story of leaked photos… so I figure we’d share this footage of this great panel from Wizard World Chicago with Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier / Bucky). They get asked everything from […]

The Winter Soldier And Falcon Not Happy With Captain America

Seems its time to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to the absurd level. Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson / The Falcon) respond to being called out by their co-star Chris Evans (Steve Rogers / Captain America). They seem to take great umbrage to this and want […]

Captain America 3 Screenwriters Address Changing Who Holds The Shield

In an interview with SFX magazine, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, screenwriters of Captain America: The Winter Soldier talked about both the recent film and the upcoming third installment which they are currently working on. Asked if it was a conscious effort to make the film a political thriller or if it just happened naturally, Markus said: […]

Spider-Woman Is Now The Black Widow…

Today sees the launch of the All-New Ultimates, the fifth “All-New” title from Marvel today (the others are X-Factor, Doop, X-Men and Ghost Rider). And we see the new Ultimates team, formed in the recent Survive one-shot. But are there too many Spider- characters for one team? And yes, “Die Spinne”, while the German for […]

What The Hell, Sitwell? (Winter Soldier And SHIELD SPOILERS)

Jasper Sitwell was a character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, appearing in Strange Tales in 1966, in the Nick Fury Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. strip, before and after it took over the title, as a fellow agent of that spy organisation. He then became the S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison with Stark Industries in the Iron Man strip […]

Meeting Sebastian Stan, Mark Buckingham And Al Murray At The Captain America Premiere

So, yes, a couple of weeks ago I went to the Captain America: The Winter Soldier UK premiere, courtesy of Skype. [youtube][/youtube] I got in a brief chat with the Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, as well as Mark Buckingham, now on the Marvel premiere list because of his upcoming new Miracleman work and a […]

Captain America Product Placement Rings True To The Character

We get a lot of press releases here at stately BC Manor… most of them end up lining the bottom of the vulture cages. But its rare we get one from Harley-Davidson. Being an ex-rider and Harley fan, I had to take a look. Harley-Davidson is providing the motorcycles for the Captain America sequel as […]
