    I mean, it's a movie starring the guy who played bucky

    he wears a domino mask

    I wasn't following at all, I knew the title and that was pretty much it.

    Also I didn't remember who played Bucky in the first one at all.

    Something about the actor that plays Bucky makes it so hard for me to recognize him. Like, he has the least recognizable face I've ever seen. I've watched the Captain America movies a crazy number of times and I'm still pretty sure I couldn't pick him out of a five man line up.

    I agree, kinda. Even the parts where he's playing Bucky in the flashback seems like a different character. However, I chalk that up to not using the same camera filters.

    But, the identity of the Winter Soldier was such an open secret that they intentionally used it to obscure the real reveal of the movie.

    I mean ok, but you not following open press does not mean people are going to be held accountable for talking about open press.

    If it isn't even treated as a secret by the movie, it's not a spoiler.

    I'm not holding the book I was reading responsible for spoiling me on a decades-old storyline that happened to share a title with an upcoming movie, for the record.

    well it is at least not decades old - Bucky was actually one of the three people you were never supposed to "bring back" in comics. It wasn't until 2005 that the Winter Soldier story happened.

    well that makes it

    decade old

    Oh absolutely

    I hate like 90% of Winnick's work but Under the Red Hood is a great story, as was his Red Hood mini that came years later

    But then Morrison ignored that in his run and then Scott Lobdell did what he does best, write terrible comics

    One of my best friends considers Red Hood his favorite character

    Or at least did for a while

    He was so excited for New 52, and Red Hood having a starring role in a book

    He tried for a really long time to enjoy it, I'm pretty sure

    actually, are there good reasons to hate Judd Winick? I haven't read his stuff in a while (I don't even know if he's been doing much the past few years), but I remember people hating on him for pushing his liberal politics in comics, and making a character HIV positive in remembrance of a friend he lost

    and people hating on Greg Rucka for making tons of female, non-white, gay, and gay non-white female characters in every book he writes

    and nowadays it's like "uh, yeah, more of that please?"

    Red Hood was a great character!

    Robin who Batman failed brought back to life to see that Batman has not only dragged two more kids into this life after his death but gotten another one killed

    So while he still believes in The Mission, he thinks Bruce is deluding himself and endangering people by refusing to do what needs to be done so he picks up some pistols and goes to work

    I think Winnick's GA, Outsiders and Titans are all really bad

    Like not because he was liberal and trying to inject that into his comics but because they were bad comics

    Especially Titans

    plus the whole "The Joker killed me. Killed me. And you still let him live and destroy the lives of other people" is a good, painful angle

    The best part is, he dosen't even blame Bruce for getting him killed, or even hold him responsible.

    His main source of anger is that Bruce didn't kill the Joker after the Joker killed him, in order to finally put a stop to the Joker's nigh infinite body count. He thought that would drive Bruce over the edge to do the "right" thing, and it didn't.

    Bullet was laced with poison which put him in an incurable coma.

    Coma fixed by Dr. Sivana, but he comes back with amnesia and a healing factor and super strength

    The cure Sivana gave him.spliced his DNA with Plastic Man's

    So there's a new insane rumor regarding a Age of Ultron cameo based on that poster.
    Danny Elfman is credited. The same Elfman who did the Spider-Man themes.

    I don't buy it.
    Quick, hum the Spider-Man movie theme.

    It's barely anything. It's not something people are going to notice unless Spider-Man is also on-screen and in that case, who cares, Spider-Man is there.

    Also, why go back to the music of not the Amazing movies, but the ones before that?

    The theory of Elfman being the man behind the "No Strings On Me" version sounds more plausible.
    Easy! Hmmhmm-hmm! Hmmhmm-hmm!
