Captain America's Directors Think It's Time Comic Book Movies Get Oscar Credit
Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been a game changer from the word go. It changed the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a major plot point in its own film, it became one of (if not the) first films to go on record as saying nitpicking through internet video series helped make it a better movie, and it turned Captain America into a brand name much like Iron Man did when it kicked everything off in 2008. But could it make even more history and become the first Marvel Studios film up for Best Picture at the Oscars?

This Week In Home Entertainment: Captain America 2, Star Trek's The Compendium And More
There’s a lot of expensive explosions and CGI-laden effects in The Winter Soldier. On Blu-ray the scenes are crisp and sharp, featuring Captain America fighting on elevators and running through doors and walls while chasing foes. The stunt work has become a hallmark of Marvel films and thanks to the extended minor cast in The Winter Soldier, audiences can root for a variety of different fighting styles inside a much larger film.
