‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ – An Interview With a S.H.I.E.L.D. Accountant

Marvel

In ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ it’s revealed that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been secretly run by the Hydra, an evil organization hell-bent on world domination.

The consequences are far and wide with this reveal. Not only will it undoubtedly change what is depicted on ABC’s ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ the effects will trickle down into every single facet of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s organization – which employs countless workers – even all of the way down to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s less high profile departments.

In an exclusive interview, we spoke to Mitch Claytonbaugh, an associate in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s accounting department, who explains what this all means for him and his team.

How ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Succeeds Where ‘Man of Steel’ Failed

Captain America Superman

Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’

The One-and-Done Marvel Movie Characters, Ranked

Marvel Character Actors
Marvel

With the release of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ we now have our ninth film of the Marvel Studios continuity since the first ‘Iron Man’ debuted in 2008. It’s a weird thing, these movies have happened so relatively fast, re-watching them now, it’s hard not to have that, Oh, that’s right, Jeff Bridges was actually in ‘Iron Man’ moment. The Marvel movies come so quickly, it almost feels like an analogy to the current state of hyper-accelerated culture itself.

Anyway, here’s a ranking of all of the one-movie-only peripheral Marvel characters played by known actors that we haven’t quite forgotten, but at least deserve to be remembered as part of an Internet list. (Marvel One-Shot short films do not count.)

The Comic That Secretly Influences ‘Captain America 2′ (And May Pave the Way For Marvel’s Entire Future)

Captain America 2 Secret Warriors
Marvel

As its title implies, 'Captain America 2' is largely inspired by Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting's celebrated, Eisner-award winning comic book storyline "The Winter Soldier." Although ultimately very different from what transpires in the big screen version, the broad strokes remain the same: Steve Rogers finds himself hunting, and being hunted by, a ruthless assassin who may or may not be his supposedly dead best friend, Bucky Barnes.

The movie uses Brubaker's Captain America run to fuel the first half of the film and provide an antagonist who can serve as an emotionally hard-hitting threat to the star-spangled Avenger. However, while it's the most obvious, it's not the only Marvel comic run heavily quoted in the film. There's another acclaimed comic series that not only informs the biggest twists of 'Captain America 2,' but suggests what crazy new direction the Marvel cinematic universe is heading toward on both the big and small screens.

Who Are Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver? Everything You Need to Know About the Twins of ‘Avengers 2′

After watching the 'Captain America 2' post-credits scenes, one of which introduced Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as "the twins" (aka Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver), one viewer exclaimed, "Am I supposed to know who they are?" Dedicated Marvel fans across the globe are no doubt rolling their eyes over what, to them, seems obvious, but it still happened.

It's easy to forget how even though Marvel's comic book universe has gone mainstream, thanks to the 'Avengers' movies, there's still a percentage of casual viewers who are only just grasping the surface of the MCU (for newbs, that stands for "Marvel Cinematic Universe") and are blissfully unaware of its implications. While we've provided primers for the uninitiated for such figures as Ultron and the Guardians of the Galaxy, we now turn our attention to the two new superheroes joining 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron.'
