Cover from Captain America #11 by Ed Brubaker
Okay, I’m over a month late on getting out a Captain America: The Winter Soldier LitFlix, and for that I am sorry. I can blame the A to Z Challenge and all the things we put off writing about in April, but that’s not it entirely. I think the problem is, there’s just too much to say about this film.
I was also left with a question: what was it about this movie that made me love it so much?
After seeing it another two times, I think the answer is quite simply that it is a good movie. It works internally with itself. It works as a sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger. And it works within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, the characters and events fitting in with the larger happenings in other films. It did the things it needed to, and did them well.
My goal however is not to present you with a review – though I will provide you with a list of solid reviews to the film. My goal is to compare this film to the comics it is based on, in the full fashion of our LitFlix. So needless to say, all sorts of spoilers to follow! Continue reading

I have been reading up for my Captain America: The Winter Soldier LitFlix, and have been learning more about Cap and his world. Agent Carter, Nick Fury, SHIELD, the Red Skull, Falcon, the Winter Soldier, the Invaders, and Bucky Barnes. The comics are from about a decade ago that seem to relate to the upcoming film, and really to the last film as well… And these comics, meanwhile, hearkened back a lot to the earlier days of Captain America, fighting in World War II with Bucky.
So I’ve been intrigued by Bucky, and the differences they’ve done with him in the movie, so I thought I would talk about that briefly, and in advance of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Spoilers and possible spoilers after the jump!
