Re: James Buchanan Barnes aka The Winter Solider
well if i recall kevin feige did say bucky was to be in the film. I agree he should be a friend/solider and not a full blown sidekick deal it probably wouldnt work out that great. As to what they should do with him i am not to sure. they could have him "die" but show up in the future as winter solider, or he could survive thing cap died in the 40s and in the present day is a very very old guy.
Warner Bros Restructure's Dc comics into DC entertainment. Hopefully more characters and long in developmental hell projects can make it into the big and small screens soon.
Marvel and the House of Mouse?
