I posed this question in the news thread, but never got anything going. I'll ask it again here, since this is a more focused topic.

Would you guys want to see the Extremis nanotech tied into Bucky's arm? I think it would provide a great link between the films that's not necessarily only there to set up another team-up scenario.

It would be an interesting tie-in, but I do wonder how they could establish that connection.

I.E. Who got the nanotech and used it on Bucky? How did they do it?

Yeah, I dunno about that. My supposition would be through Mandarin or other black market means. It seams as if there's going to be some corporate (or more nefarious) style theft in IM3, so it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility to throw it Bucky's way. I just like having things to tie these movies together, and I really don't want those elements to be there only to set up plot points for Avengers. They can be there just to connect the dots for fun's sake.

Exactly.

All indications are that Winter Soldier is going to be a product of HYDRA, and that Zola is the one who recovered his body and brainwashed him and engineered and trained him. The cybernetic arm for WS was probably developed by Zola (or his successors) long before Killian develops the Extremis tech in the 21st century.

He should have the bionic arm. It's a major trademark and part of the look for the character and can become an interesting story device as well.

The arm isn't the only bionic appendage on Bucky.

Not much of an upgrade if a magnifying glass is needed.

Looks like the artist did a little time-traveling there, back to 1993 or so.

The role of Captain America will be played by Kevin Costner, and the role of Bucky/Winter Soldier will be played by Sam Neill. Allegedly.

Yes to the bionic arm.

I'd like to see a mask on him for at least the first encounter with Steve or however they first hear about WS, then give the reveal.

I say no to bionic arc tied into extremis, I say no to the bionic arm being a prototype stolen from Howard Stark.

Just let the boy's arms be his damn arm.

He should have the bionic arm because Winter Soldier needs to seem more detached from humanity. He needs to have a mask, because it's about sending a message. This russian angel of death could be right behind but you'd never know. Also I don't want anyone going "Hey it's Bucky". Now we can make the domino mask a tad bit more practical and larger. But he need's a mask. Covert assassin should blend in but also needs to not have his face all over the news when he's seen.

I think the domino mask looks cool and all, too, but someone wearing a domino mask would *hardly* "blend in." "WTF is up with the dude in that mask....? Is it Halloween already....?"

He should have the bionic arm for sure. If capt and bucky throw down and we know they will, well soldier with a bionic arm fighting capt is much better than soldier vs a super soldier.

A domino mask doesn't hide your identity in real life, you kinda have to give Cap that sort of Lois Lane stupidity for his best friend with a domino mask. Now if you give him a full mask/goggly combination, then I could see some changes there, otherwise it should be like the GL film: "I'm not going to not recognize you just because you hide your cheekbones."

But the Bionic arm should DEFINITELY be there. Did I say definitely? DEFINITELY. It's what puts him on par with Cap. Let him do cool stuff like catch the SHIELD "Been a long time since I used this" punch through walls and throw cap a few dozen yards. I'd also prefer seeing it as more of a robotic arm (not being shaped like a biological arm), to add to the realism, but I doubt any Bucky fans would agree.

Regardless, it could be tied to Hyrda's tech they had in WWII, or to the Chitauri tech that fell from the sky. Either is an improvement to using Stark's nanotech to make an arm that doesn't have nanotech properties.
