Chris Evans and Scarlet Johansson in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Captain America is back in the title character’s second standalone film: Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And I was surprised to see that this wasn’t a movie built off of the events that transpired in The Avengers. Iron Man 3 almost constantly brought up the events that happened in New York. This film, however, is unaffected by the events in that film. It stands on its own with its own story. It actually follows the story of the first Captain America film. But I ended up not being a huge fan of that one, mostly because of the abrupt and sped-up ending they produced in order to set things up for The Avengers. But how does this film compare to the first one?
