American Dream



As someone who saw Captain American: The First Avenger as the weakest of the Phase One of Marvel’s feature films which led into The Avengers; I have been quietly impressed with the trailers for the sequel ‘The Winter Soldier’.

It seems in this franchise more than Thor, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk; we will get to see S.H.I.E.L.D and how it operates, and not the poor imitation television show which I have finally given the boot.

Don’t even get me started on that.

The stakes seem to higher than ever, with the mysterious Winter Soldier being a physical match for Cap, with some nifty weaponry to go with it.

After a patchy start the latest films in the Marvel Universe have really gone to another level with the excellent Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, so the pressure is on to keep up the standards.

I may be getting ahead of myself, and believing a bit of the hype but here’s hoping it turns out to be another home run, or the Captain America franchise could become the black sheep of the Avengers very quickly.
