@SpitfireINK:Well, i guess we were watching different movies, b/c im pretty damn sure that Bourne series (especially Ultimatum) were sporting some political undertones. Hell Ultimatum could be blueprint for CA: Winter Soldier movie.

Sounds promising. If it's anything like Ed Brubaker's run + Bourne Trilogy, there could be some potential to inject modernity into the character. While the first movie was a fun period piece, I'd definitely wanna see Cap enter the 21st century with a more serious tone (seeing as how this seems to be Phase 2's plan? IM3 seems to support this...)

On the other hand, I don't want this to be Syriana. At the end of the day, it's still a superhero movie, not a political one. I don't want to watch 120 minutes of Cap and Fury debating domestic policy and U.S.-Middle-East relations.

But I think that the largest problem with making Cap a 'political thriller' is the costume. Gonna be hard to fit the red, white, and blue in a more grounded plot...

Whilst I have little interest in the majority of Marvel films, I do think 2 per year is a little excessive. 
This may be entirely due to being a DC fan, but the reason why I prefer their films (regardless of how good or bad they are) is because they are fewer and far between. This may sound stupid, but I feel like I DESERVE to watch them, after waiting a year or two to do so... it really annoys me that Marvel is destroying the enjoyment factor of patience for the entire industry. 

I accept that Green Lantern was pretty awful, but the reason why it remains one of my favourite comic-book films is because I knew that it was a one-off opportunity, and one that fans had the chance to wait for in anticipation... even if that anticipation is better than the result.

"There's an opportunity to graft almost sub-genres onto them."... ^That^ is exactly what I always thought about, when people say it's just a fad.... Ps: I am definitely watching this movie just for Winter Soldier & Crossbones. (+)

Not often you can tell so much about the movie by the title alone.

They better not eff it up. If you're going to do a Captain America/Winter Soldier movie, you better talk to Brubaker.

Political thriller just means to me that they are going to make this a bit more multidimensional and thus give us all the more reason to be entertained. I say, is it 2014 yet?

marvel movies are becoming more and more of a ponzi scheme

Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and an unknown one (possibly Daredevil, Black Panther, or Doctor Strange...could be even The Wolverine, but doubt it) are the movies that are setting up Avengers 2. Ant-man is going to start phase 3 at the end of 2015.
