Ed Brubaker, creator of The Winter Soldier, was "blown away" by the screenplay for the Captain America sequel

When adapting anything, getting the support of the creator of the source material is always cause to celebrate. Sometimes they author will despise the adaptation (Stephen King versus Stanley Kubrick on THE SHINING) and in other cases they will love what they see. Consider this a case of the latter as Ed Brubaker has good things to say about CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.

USA Today asked Ed Brubaker about the big screen adaptation of his Winter Soldier storyline and he had this to say:

"I read the script and I was really blown away by it. The tone of it and the Bucky stuff is so perfect and the way I'd want it to be, I was so thrilled to see that. But to me the biggest thing, too, is it's the first time Marvel has put out a movie where there's a specific book the title of the movie relates to."

Reading the script may not be indicative of the final product, but I take this as a very good sign about the movie. The script from Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely is one thing, but if Joe and Anthony Russo truly capture the 1970s conspiracy thriller feel they have been touting, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is going to be damn good.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, and Toby Jones opens April 4, 2014.

Hard to believe!

Considering that the script clearly shows that the Winter Soldier is actually an aging, stoned actor and Bucky just is controlling him from behind the scenes....oh wait, wrong script...

After Iron Man 3, I'd say "I'll believe when I see it".

I'm looking forward to it; I didn't expect the scale of the film to feel even larger than that of the Avengers but judging by the Comic Con footage featuring a helicarrier docking bay, it certainly seems that way. Also, tinge of hometown pride seeing as Chin Han (Mr Lau from the Dark Knight and Tenzin in 2012) will be in the film too.

I think this is the film to beat when it comes to phase 2 films. Captain America is my favorite Avenger, so I have high expectations for this film and how they make the transition from the first film to modern times (excluding Avengers).

Who cares?

Does anyone actually think he wasn't paid to say something like this?

I was watching the original Captain America cartoon last night, the really old one, "When Captain America throws his mighty shield!" and I was surprised how many things from this cartoon had made it into the first Cap movie, it actually made me like the first one even more, probably going to rewatch it this weekend... I'm stoked for Winter Soldier!

This is very good news. One of my favorite writers of all time likes a movie script that is based off of his own work. can't believe it

That's really good to hear. I thought Captain America was pretty underrated and I'm looking to see what this one will bring to the table. Also, I excited to see how this one leads into Avengers: Age of Ultron.
