Captain America: The Winter Soldier Sets New Standard, Direction for Marvel Movies


Marvel’s “The Avengers” set the bar really high for movies set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Iron Man 3” answered with the first hints of a new direction and “Thor: The Dark World” showed that humans could fight along side the super heroes and survive. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” takes that world and twists everything around setting the stage for “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

But I’m getting ahead of myself and the plot.

As the story begins, Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, is settling into his new role in the modern world, but finding the fit a bit uncomfortable. When he sees how S.H.I.E.L.D. plans to respond to the troubles of the modern world, Rogers confronts Nick Fury. Fury has his own concerns, which brings him to the attention of The Winter Soldier, and that’s when the excitement really begins.

Meanwhile, Rogers and Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, discover the loose threads of a villainous plot and pull on them to see what is exposed. What they discover threatens to change the world forever.Read More »Captain America: The Winter Soldier Sets New Standard, Direction for Marvel Movies

Spotted: New T-shirts and Hats at Magic Kingdom

I particularly liked this new Pirates of the Caribbean cap. Saw it on quite a few heads walking around the park, so I must not be the only one.

This hat is part of a set with the T-shirt below. Both are part of the new ‘street-art’ series. I like this one in that it features Mickey with a remote control and a crazy Pete.
