Samuel L. Jackson
Anthony & Joe Russo
- Black Widow is such a badass. You can’t not like her. And Bucky is fine as hell, too. Getting his Edward Elric on and everything.
- I liked Steve Rogers more in this than the first Captain America. He maintains his George Washington honesty and banters with Romanoff about finding a suitable woman to go out with (while teasing the audience with an almost-romance with her).
- I’ll be damned if I didn’t feel a little twinge in my chest when Peggy has the line about starting over and then in her dementia completely forgets their conversation. The pain on Steve’s face was palpable.
- Maybe I’m a little biased because Cap isn’t one of my favorites. Or maybe there were too many characters and fast action sequences to really understand what was going on the first time around. Sacrificing millions to save billions? Thanos? Is that you?
- The main issue many seem to have with this movie is that it’s an Avengers-level threat, and no one showed up to the party but Cap, Black Widow and Falcon. The excuse is that as the movie takes place over three days, they didn’t have time to call Iron Man, Banner, etcetera. Which is horseshit. Because they were on the East Coast, and Tony was lounging around in his iron castle in New York (evidenced when the helicarrier targeted Stark Tower and showed his name). You’re telling me he couldn’t have jetted over in a flash?
- Whatever, the movie still worked without him.
