I think the thing I am most curious about is the sense i will get leaving the movie of how the re-assembly of the Avengers takes place. I hope we get some scene that is Cap making the call to his fellow Avengers.

What I'm finding interesting is that unlike any of the previous Marvel directors, the Russo's are putting a little more pressure on Whedon than I think any of us expected, at least action wise. He's going to need to step it up a notch. I think AOU will only benefit from this.

Oh yeah, as it should be. The quality of all aspects of these MCU films should go up with each production, like a passing of the baton so to speak in a relay.

I think Whedon has a lot more to work with in terms of Cap. Cap's new acrobatic fighting style, and his more-creative use of the shield, as well as his 'upgrades' (no parachute, jumping off high places, etc) will allow Whedon to play around with him more. In The Avengers you just saw Cap punch and kick a few people, because that's really all Whedon had to work with after TFA.

I think I am more interested in how the events of CA:TWS impact Avengers: AoU. We've been promised it will "rock the MCU to its core" and I hope it really does.

Ideally yes, this just seems different though. I'm not sure another Thor with the same quality as TDW is going to be as accepted as it was this time. The bar legitimately has been raised for Marvel production. What's great is knowing they can handle it.

I think Feige and other higher ups at the studio just need to put the pedal to the metal and be more demanding with their chosen directors.

Agreed. Cap struggling to out duel one possessed SHIELD soldier in a gun fight will not be tolerated now lol. TWS Cap would take that dude out by throwing his helmet at him.

Or using Marvel physics to ricochet the gun off the wall and hit him (since he missed the first time).

Definitely. I can see why they've had a hard time finding the right director for Thor though. He's not the easiest to adapt to the big screen.

Exactly. Absolutely no reason to have Tony almost die because Cap couldn't handle that guy. Come on Whedon, lol.

Its at the end of the film following the fall of SHIELD. They want answers and they want someone to be responsible and Widow is all "You aren't going to put us in jail." and the officer says, "And why do you think that?" then Widow says "Because you still need us." and then she walks out.

The infamous Jeff Wells LIKED it, and he raked The Avengers over the coals for whatever reasons. He also crashed Ebert's funeral and I think collected some Nazi memorabillia. He is a bizarre one:

(This may be one of the four horsemen, people, that Wells liked CATWS… Wells is such a huge [blankety blank] [expletive deleted] [blank] LOL!)

I have no idea who some of these lesser critics/movie writers are so forgive if I appear ignorant on them. Who is Wells and what is the big beefs with him? One major one I could see is he's not exactly a fan of superhero movies.

For those who have seen the film regarding the mid-credits scene...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
How did you interpret it? Too me it sounded like Strucker has been using the energy of Loki's Scepter to experiment on people (many of which have died), but the twins survived and thus they gain powers. Did anyone else see it as that? I also really like the idea (if they would run with it) that people with superpowers could be called miracles. Such a great scene.

He's basically a Hollywood "insider" who at times reviews movies. Has a tremendous amount of disdain for CBMs, and basic human decency. I do believe he crashed uninvited to Ebert's funeral and he got into a huge dustup at a panel hosted at Oxford over his hotel room not having access to WiFi…

Basically, he's an a-hole.

Whedon could've changed that a little bit, he just chose not to. He's not exactly the greatest "action" screenplay writer there is. Mostly a bantering and dialogue guy.

They really do need to hire someone versed in the art of combat to work on the action sequences and bring to life these superheroes on a more consistent basis.

I agree with your assessment, and it gave me serious Nazi-surgical experiment vibes. Very well done and creepy direction by Whedon.

This paragraph from his review pretty much sums up Jeffrey Wells.

"This is a genre film so you can’t get too excited, but the focus, craft and general efficiency that have gone into Winter Soldier are truly exceptional and top-of-the-line. If you’re going to do this kind of crap, this is how you do it."

Whedon is skilled at bringing comic book superpowers to the big screen.

While the Cap action left something to be desired his Iron Man, Hulk and Thor action scenes were masterfully done, I thought.

Well I guess if Cap 2 can win over a mega-hater like that then it should win over almost everyone.
