Steve has always been more about just being a good guy....he's also charismatic as hell. Whedon played on that a helluva lot better than Joe Johnston did, but there's still a lot to be desired there.
2) Sharon Carter. Not played by Hayley Atwell; she's a a grand-niece (or even a great-grand niece) of Peggy, which means the family resemblance is going to be barely noticeable. Sorry, the genetics just don't add up that the grand-daughter of your brother or sister and their spouse is going to look like you at all.
3) Falcon. 'Nuff said.
4) HYDRA comes back. Led by Von Strucker, or Viper, or Arnim Zola, or Baron Zemo --- I really don't care which.
5) Save Bucky and Skully for Cap 3. There's a LOT of characters who "survived" WWII along with Steve Rogers, but if you start overcrowding it in the movies, general audiences are likely to throw in the towel. "Oh come on! ANOTHER dude from WWII coming back....?!?! How many is that now....?!?! I'm outta here"
So, in the past 24 hours, I'm already +1/ -1.
Oh well, can't say I'm *too* disappointed in Winter Soldier returning. I just hope the rumors about Zola joining him aren't true....I could see Zola in flashbacks, being the one who actually recovered Bucky's body and brainwashed him and all, and maybe doing the Manchurian Candidate thing on him through the Cold War era; but I'd rather see the modern MAIN villain be Helmut Zemo. Make him a grandson or even great-grandson of Heinrich.
