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?

There’s a lot of expensive explosions and CGI-laden effects in The Winter Soldier.
