So about that bridge

I wasn’t sure why, but something about the Winter Soldier saying he recognized ‘the man on the bridge’ didn’t seem quite right to me.


The way that scene goes in the movie, he intercepts the car on the bridge but he actually fights Steve and loses his mask on the street directly beneath it.


Sure, I could just be nitpicking, since the sequence started on the bridge anyway. My theory is that he’s referencing another scene there. Maybe that one that showed up in an early trailer but it is not actually in the movie.


Judging by the strong sunlight, I would guess this did take place on the bridge itself; maybe they did the whole scene where Steve recognizes Bucky somewhat differently at first then ended up changing it later, but not the lines of the scene where the Winter Soldier says he remembers Steve.

It’s just a theory, so I might be completely off the mark. But if this is not the case, I sure would love for the actual bridge scene to show up in the bluray.


Started this some time ago and quickly lost interest. I’m sorry Bucky. I’m sure the biggest betrayal is that hair though. Jeez!

"Most of the intelligence community doesn’t believe he exists. The ones that do call him the *:★Kawaii Soldier★:*. He’s an adorable ghost, you’ll never find him.”

"It’s funny you should ask that. [laughs] It’s cool. When I was a kid, I really didn’t have a person I could look at, other than my dad, and be like, “Hey, I want to be that guy and fly through the window.” You couldn’t be like 7 years old and say, “Who do you want to be for Halloween?” “Shaft!”
So [laughs] you know, it’s really exciting. When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to"
