Bucky Barnes Is No Slouch in ‘Captain America’ movie

Captain America has been throwing his mighty shield for 70 years and his sidekick, James “Bucky” Barnes, was right there at his side in that first comic book adventure in March 1941. The Cap’s parter isn’t going to be some slappy kid sidekick though, sorry Grandpa, but this generation just doesn’t work that way.

Captain America’s Costume Details

Captain America’s Costume Details

I’m looking forward to the Captain America movie like no other. He is quite possibly one of the most prolific Marvel characters ever created, and the fact that we’re finally getting a Cap movie that’s a period piece, excited the living hell out of me. I don’t even care that they picked Chris Evans to […]
