Like 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World,' the question was never whether or not 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' would take the number one spot at the box office, but rather how much it would earn while sitting pretty at the top of the list. Also, like its "Phase 2" predecessors, the second Steve Rogers adventure proved that people are still punch-drunk in love with the Avengers characters.

Anthony Mackie is jazzed about playing the Falcon in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' No, seriously, the actor is pumped about this role, and he took that joy to 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' where he basically just hysterically (but charmingly!) screamed through six minutes with the late show host.

The One-and-Done Marvel Movie Characters, Ranked

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)

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.

[Editor's Note: Consider yourself warned of spoilers from 'Captain America 2' and 'The 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.'

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Review

Whereas Tom Hanks' Captain Phillips talked, finessed, sweated and went into shock to rescue his crew, Chris Evans' Captain America jumps onto a hijacked boat from a helicopter without a parachute. His liberation of a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel captured by international terrorists involves flinging himself across the deck; a human pinball with terrorists as his easily neutralized bumpers. Make that a super-human pinball, because as much as Steve Rogers maintains his golly shucks good nature, he is, after all, a Marvel superhero and he's here to save the day in the most preposterous and camera-ready fashion that's possible. Welcome to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.

Last night's latest 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode "End of the Begining" officially kicked the series into high gear with the proper emergence of Deathlok, as well as a few fast-paced reveals, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get even busier with the release of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Last night planted quite a few seeds for the epic Cap sequel, and you can check out the first pieces of its 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' crossover right now!

Why Captain America is Now Marvel's Greatest Superhero

There's no getting around it: Iron Man is the most popular of the Avengers. Just look at the box office. 'Iron Man' and 'Iron Man 2' both broke $300 million at the domestic box office and 'Iron Man 3' passed $400 million. Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark didn't just put Marvel Studios on the map, he's pretty much kept it on the map. It's safe to say that 'The Avengers' did as well as it did because Iron Man was front and center on all of the posters. People love Iron Man and that's okay.
But, while he's the most popular, he's not the best Marvel cinematic superhero. That honor belongs to Captain America.
