A Complete Captain America Rewrite And 3 More Fascinating Things The Winter Soldier Writers Told Us
Handling The Strangest Stuff Comics Have To OfferLooking back on the last 75 years of Marvel Comics, you discover that there is a lot of really strange stuff. Not only are there some massively convoluted cross-over stories and bizarre costumes, but there are also characters who are just straight up weird. It’s the great comic book movies that are able to take these more unconventional or unrealistic elements and find a way to translate them for live-action, and it was definitely a challenge that Markus and McFeely faced in writing Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
So what is the trick to handling that kind of material? "A lot of it is visual presentation," McFeely explained, stressing the importance of context. "If the set can be designed or the costume can be designed where you’re like, "Okay, I can get how that works,’ whether or not I understand [it], the things I see all make sense."
While I don’t want to spoil Captain America: The Winter Soldier here – some moments are best first experienced on the big screen – there are definitely some elements from the comics that will make drop long-time fans’ jaws. You are all in for a treat.
