Marvel Films, Disney, it doesn't seem like a good match but someone, somewhere, making the decisions did what I thought was the impossible... they made brightly coloured comic book characters seem like the heroes they are in the comic books on film!
The 80's and 90's tried to bring characters like Thor and Captain America to life before in live action flicks but they both failed but I did like the 90's Captain America and I'm not ashamed to say it!
Now in 2014 we have the best Marvel feature film to date. Some would disagree but for me Captain America: The Winter Soldier had it all, the action, the impact, the star studded power and the story to give Captain America that edge he needed. It also gave Black Widow the development that she sorely lacked in Avengers Assemble... From the Red Skull to the Cold War.... HAIL HYDRA!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes to DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray on August 18th but if you can't wait that long... download it (Legally) on it's EST release on August 1st.
Now forgive me while I go cry a little Zavvi have once again not manufactured enough steelbooks and I missed out on pre-order! NOW MY COLLECTION IS NOT COMPLETE!!! Thanks Zavvi!
