If you leave a movie theater talking and thinking about a film, it was probably a good one. That certainly happened this weekend with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In addition to all the crazy happenings early in the film, it leaves its characters in a jaw-dropping spot. A spot that not only has ramifications on Avengers: Age of Ultron and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well.
Which raises the question, where did the idea for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier ending come from? Whose wild idea was it to pull the plug on something so major? Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told us the whole story, and you can read it below. Major spoilers, obviously. Read More »

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets one step closer to completion this weekend as Captain America: The Winter Soldier finally hits theaters. Anthony and Joe Russo take the next logical step in the story Joe Johnson started in The First Avenger and Joss Whedon continued in The Avengers. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is coming to terms with his unique reality after waking from decades frozen in ice, and doing his job as a general bad-ass for S.H.I.E.L.D. He begins to discover a plot, however, that will put in danger everything he stands for, and put him face to face with an old friend who now goes by the name The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
Featuring great performances from Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and many more, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is going to change everything you thought about Marvel leading into next summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
We’ve already weighed in with our opinion, now we want you to do the same. Below, tell us Captain America The Winter Soldier reactions and feel free to discuss all the major spoilers it contains.

All your loved ones are at risk of being captured by the enemy at any moment. And it can really sting when the public you’ve worked so hard to save doesn’t seem all that grateful for your help.
But then there’s also the dollar cost of being a superhero. Sure, Steve Rogers may have started out as an middle-class kid from Brooklyn.
