Captain America: The Winter Soldier
That sounds like a terrible way to live. – Steve Rogers
It’s a great way to not die. – Natasha Romanoff
Comics are at their best when they’re modern myths – when the writers use them to tell stories so we can talk about ourselves in a safe way. It stands to reason, then, that Comic Book films are going to be most successful when they tap into the Zeitgeist and really talk about something.
In this regard, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a runaway success (as its already more than $300 million global box office indicates). It’s a sharp, funny, fun, action-packed spy thriller – the best film of Marvel’s post-Avengers Phase II so far. The film is packed with Easter Eggs and teasers for future Marvel films.
