    I think it depends. Some people just aren't good at spotting anagrams while being intelligent, and some anagrams are perhaps quite good.

    However, a villain choosing an anagram of their evil secret identity is stupid.

    Yeah, but people who are meant to be codebreakers (like you get in Dan Brown's books or probably in SHIELD) should be able to spot one easily. Imagine a specialist codebreaker/cryptologist who can't even solve a simple anagram. :doh:

    One last thing, Robert Redford was cast last week as a high ranking government official. I was told today that Redford’s character is named Pierce.

    Alexander Goodwin Pierce?

    GSP is a total badass, hope that translates to film. Doubt he'll have much dialogue though

    The Leaper is just going to be another henchman. He could easily be someone who shows up again in future films to just cause problems. Could be a really fun character that can go several directions in any film.

    If Redford is Pierce, I think my original idea that Redford was a former agent who has had fights throughout the years with Winter Soldier could be true. It's not like Redford could fight effectively now, so it makes sense to have Redford v. Winter Soldier in a flashback to help bring the characters into the present and give them some history. Redford's character knows the Winter Soldier's tactics and is just there to inform Cap about this guy, but Redford doesn't know it's Bucky. The only person who gets to figure that out is Cap.

    I still think there needs to be another big bad. This big bad has Crossbones as a loyal soldier. He/she hires The Leaper and uses the Winter Soldier (controlled by Zola) to bolster the group. With that many baddies who will each need a fight or two, I'm kinda leaning towards a female big bad, so they don't have to get beat up too...or maybe they get beat up by Sharon because I haven't figured out what she has to do besides be eye candy.

    Maybe this is that physical, foreign villain from that casting report.

    Damn this film is going to have a lot of action. Look at how many villains we got. Winter Soldier, Crossbones, Batroc, Arnim Zola and potentially Baron Zemo? Kickass.

    I could see him showing up as the right-hand man for Ulysses Klaw if he were to appear in Ant-Man, though I was hoping for JCVD as Batroc if he were to show up.

    Not to mention Zola, Fury, and possibly Hawkeye.


    So excited to see Batroc! I honestly can't wait to see how he uses those legs in combat.

    I just need two more characters involved in this;

    - A main villain who could direct the baddies, because none of them is a mastermind.
    - A Russian.

    - It'll probably be Zemo.

    - Black Widow is in this, and she's Russian.

    Winter Soldier, Crossbones, and Batroc...something tells me these guys will not be working together and will be representing different interests.

    Also, indeed, the movie lacks one central villain...unless it turns out to be Arnim Zola (which I don't think it will be) it HAS to be Zemo or Von Strucker they're planning to use...probably Von Strucker.

    I think Grillo/Crossbones will be the main villain. He was cast really early in the process IIRC, behind only the returning characters and Mackie

    I'm gettin worried that zemo may not be in it. That's 3 villains already. Plus cap, falcon, widow, and Sharon. And the winter soldier

    It's coming dangerously close to character overkill, but if they can manage all these guys successfully they'll get the credit.

    That's true... I'll hold out hope, since Norman Osborn was casted after everyone else for TASM2. The casting might be going the same route for Zemo.

    Maybe there isn't a big bad on screen but rather someone who has been pulling strings to be revealed in a later film. Maybe Zola is the go between for this baddie and the soldiers.

    The big bad role doesn't fit for Zola or Crossbones but if that character is off-screen, that could lead to some really interesting stories further on.

    I don't know anything about Bartoc but I'm guessing he'll just be a one action scene villain.

    I don't think so, Nolan couldn't even make Bane the main villain with Tom Hardy in the role. Grillo is a good actor, but I don't see him as the big bad.

    Also, I hope each of these characters gets to wear awesome costumes. WS and Crossbones translate to film easily. I wonder how Batroc will look.

    The Leaper is a C-list villain so it's like he's just a cameo villain. But not a real threat.

    None of these guys are technically villains, just mercenaries. There isn't one big, actual villain, yet.
