    Since S.H.I.E.L.D is gonna be present,I think Clay Quartermain should appear maybe partnered up with Jimmy Woo..just my two cents

    They made way too big of a deal of Crossbones casting imo. If he was a minor villain, he would've been cast last minute, the way Arnim Zola is.

    I think it's possible they're going the Whiplash route with Crossbones. Taking a minor henchman character and sprucing him up a bit.

    Yes, he is. It was announced a couple of days after the title.

    I imagine we'll hear some casting for this next week, once all the "trailers attached to Hobbit" mania blows over

    I currently place my money on Zemo as the real big bad. Bucky, because of his unusual status, is most likely neither the Big Bad *nor* the Dragon. Rather, Zemo is the Big Bad, Crossbones is his Dragon, and Winter Soldier is his secret weapon. Bucky isn't treated likely an ally, or even a minion, but a living tool, deployed when needed then put back away in a frozen coffin.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. I could even see Crossbones going to "retrieve" Bucky if he's turned back early enough. Or maybe Bucky could go all Darth Vader on him/Zemo toward the end too. Ah dunno, maybe not the best ideas, just the first that come to mind.

    So do you guys think they're gonna conceal Winter Soldier's true identity til the end? If so, it kind of sucks that the cb fans are all gonna be spoiled before the movie even starts. Unavoidable i guess.

    it was an odd dream, I was watching the movie from inside it

    With it saying "Winter Soldier" right there in the title, I'm sure they're not going to try to go all M. Night Shamalamadingdong and try to save his identity for a "SHOCKING PLOT TWIST!!!:wow:" I figure they'll introduce WS first as the hit-man on ice, then have Cap start investigating him early in the movie, and probably discover that it's really Bucky by the end of Act I, say 20-30 minutes in. The middle of the movie will likely deal with Cap trying to break through to Bucky and reprogram him, just in time for them to team up against Zemo (or whoever) in the third reel.

    Lol yeah I don't think Winter Soldiers identity will be hidden. I'd say the movie might even open with a awesome assassination carried out by a masked Winter Soldier whereby at the conclusion of the scene he reveals his identity to audience, enter title sequence.

    Due to the complexity of the situation SHIELD is called in, with Cap being Cap, he just wants to get on the next mission, so Nick puts him on this, along with Sam Wilson and Sharon Carter.

    Act 1 - trying to figure out what's going on, end of the act, first confrontation with Winter Soldier and Cap realizing its Bucky.

    Enter Act 2 - Natasha is brought in, she offers up the necessary info on Winter Soldier's past, and just how deadly he is. However according to her intel, at the end of the Cold War, the soviets scrapped such Programs. WS was never again seen until now. Cap and Co then figure out what will WS next move might be, but then Crossbones intervenes, he just makes a mess of things!

    Act 3 - Cap finds WS tries to get through to him, but this just puts WS into a world of confusion. leading to a Cap vs WS vs Crossbones! The fight gets interrupted by Zemo. Zemo realizes that WS is no longer of use to him, so he orders his men to freeze him once again. Throughout the film, SHIELD figure out that there was another party involved and the head of this group was led by Phoenix, but Zemo reveals his identity to Cap along with his personally vendetta to kill him. Falcon, Sharon and BW interrupt this, with Falcon taking on Crossbones. WS takes out the guards and frees himself. BW comes face to face with him, and the two face off. Cap goes after Zemo and they have little fight but His smart enough to know his beat, he detonates a bomb In there hideout and escapes with the promise to kill Cap. Cap finds the others and they all escape.

    WS enters SHIELD custody, as Bucky still isn't all there.

    Or something like that!

    Well, he did say the villain was cast over two weeks ago, with no other news to the like coming out. So its sort of past the point of credible news.

    If if Zemo is cast eventually, it looks more like a guess to me. As does a lot of the stuff he "leaks". Stuff that can't be corroborated for some time.

    Agreed. I think the suspense will come more from expectation of what'll happen when Steve finds out, rather than a driving question being 'Who is the Winter Soldier?'

    I don't expect Bucky to be deprogrammed until the last 20 minutes.

    well you answered my question. thats my guess as well.

    I think they need to revamp the Falcon to make him believable within the MCU. A mechanical harness aint gonna cut it.

    Plus they need to explain why flappable wings are better than, say, a supersonic battle suit (Stark isnt the only game in town btw). Furthermore, wouldnt a regular guy with huge wings be a sitting duck for rockets, lasers, gunfire, aircraft,etc.? Im extremely curious to find out how they're gonna make it work.

    And no, "light wings" would actually be much much worse.

    I'm not a troll btw. I like Sam Wilson as a character, and i think his skill set is a good complement to Cap as well the Avengers and SHIELD. But I dont think the character works "as is" in the MCU.

    I expect some major changes to his "powers" and equipment when we see him in Cap 2.

    Lol was reading up on Zemo a while back, I do a weekly radio show , the guy that I do the show with said Zemo used Phoenix as an alias in his first appearance in the comics, when I checked on Wikipedia there it was! On good ole' unreliable! But it's also mentioned in the Marvel wiki.

    I just added that in since we know how Marvel love to use certain references from the past.

    Lol but I get where the confusion came in, I think of should mentioned that Cap would figure out that someone is controlling Bucky, and that it isn't Crossbones, that there is a higher up, and maybe they give this mysterious figurehead the name Phoenix. At first there investigation into the matter could lead them to Zemo Industries, With Helmut being an extremely successful business man and engineer, a charming guy, that gets along with Cap. For whatever reason, SHIELD decides that Zemo Industries will not lead to anything significant. That they just pawns in this scheme, so they turn there attention to something else.

    I kinda like this idea of Zemo, being this wealthy aristocrat, that has built up this business from the ground up, that has projects running that's actually doing some good in the world. But one day he switches the TV on and there is that Bastard murderer Captain America prancing around playing hero. It's just that snap, the idea of this man that has it all, that's doing good, but when something from his past comes back to haunt him, all he can do his recede into this very dark place that he has suppressed. Caps resurgence has Zemo treed, as he needs to restore the family's honor and the only way to do this is to kill Captain America.
