Speaking of the Raft, WOW is that an easy place to break into. While we never see exactly how it went down, somehow Steve Rogers is able to infiltrate the place, knock out every guard, and (seemingly) break out all the prisoners - BY HIMSELF (and without his vibranium shield, even). How is this place gonna hold up against ACTUAL superpowered villains who might wanna break people out?! Steve Rogers is strong and has enhanced abilities, but like...Ultron had laserbeams 'n shit on top of being strong.
Maybe next time build a prison named after something more durable than "a shitty boat."
Tracking Tony's emotional journey through the MCU films is actually pretty easy and surprisingly well-handled for an arc that spans so many different KINDS of movies (his own Iron Man films, the Avengers team-ups, and now a Cap movie), but his relationship with his suits of armor is a little more confusing.
It's confusing and sorta baffling, but maybe this is just the result of hiring a famous person and not locking them into a 9-picture contract from the get-go.
C'mon Marvel - you've proven that you can have bad guys in their silly comic book get-ups and still be compelling, dangerous figures. Zemo's a brilliantly written villain - sad and deeply human, with attainable realistic goals. But I wanted him to accidentally glue a purple hood to his face REAL bad.
I WATCH THESE MOVIES TO ESCAPE THE HARSH REALITY OF LIFE, RUSSO BROS!!!!
Hahahaha JK. Spider-Man and Black Panther showing up fully-formed and awesome was amazing. No tedious flashbacks repeating the same story we've seen a thousand times - they just show up, there's some extremely light exposition explaining their place in this world and their ethos, and BAM! they're off and badass.
Kinda nice when these comic book movies respect the intelligence of their audience, huh?
In Winter Soldier, when Steve and Natasha find the hidden HYDRA bunker holding the computerized-mind of Arnim Zola, he PRETTY MUCH explicitly tells Cap that the Winter Soldier took out Papa Stark:
So, that should settle THAT.
Now let's get back to the important issues, like DID YOU SEE HOW CLOSE STEVE AND BUCKY WERE TO KISSING IN THE ELEVATOR AT THE SIBERIAN BASE?! SO CLOSE, RIGHT?!
