I’m glad Marvel Studios kept Captain America out of these buccaneer boots. So NOT swag.
The Winter Soldier will be the second Captain America movie and we learn that Falcon (Anthony Mackie) makes his debut in this film. We also learn that Cap’s sidekick Bucky Barnes didn’t die on the mountain in WWII. Barnes IS the Winter Soldier who is working for the Russians during the Cold War. Shit is about to go down.
I’ve decided to no longer experience my fanboy favorite things amongst other fanboys. I most assuredly will be hyper-critical of the work as I ruminate on all the things the movie or other production didn’t include from the original canon of the character(s).
When I go to see Captain America and Thor later this year I’m taking my 11yr old nephew. He isn’t bothered by the inconsistencies with the canons of these characters. He just wanted to be amazed. That’s all I ever wanted when I first started reading comicbooks.
Marvel Entertainment turned several corners when they committed their properties to Hollywood productions. They have Warner Brothers scrambling to put resources back into their comic book properties. The DC universe was flattened so many decades ago. They have had murmurs and fits but if you were gonna rock with one brand you would be dumb not to say “MAKE MINE MARVEL”.
Don’t play yourself and avoid seeing The Wolverine movie. Shit is dope. All of it.
Then we dipped into DumBo for a secret loft party featuring Riff Raff thrown by KarmaLoop. The next wave was back in Manhattan, but since Combat Jack is a Brooklyn dude once you cross the bridge for the night you don’t go back into the city.
I was cool with that since I’m old now anyhoo.
I raided the ‘frige for the last two slices of cheddar and roasted ham.
But first I dropped some tomatoes and this fiery dijon mustard on two pieces of toasted peasant bread.
Peace to Matt Raz for leaving me with that clip of ooooweee I had for dessert.
As per my father AND my grandfather Willie Mays, the ‘Say Hey Kid’ was the greatest person to ever put on a baseball mitt, swing a bat and wear a pair of cleats. Say Hey just had a New Year start for him so I’m giving props.
