Hmm… obviously Marvel are trying to invoke the idea that the Winter Soldier is at least an equal match for Cap, what with the paint scraping off of his iconic shield. At least they didn’t go with the too often used comic image of the shield actually being broken, since in The Avengers we actually saw the shield withstand a blow from Thor’s hammer, and I seriously doubt that Bucky (if that is indeed the identity of the Winter Soldier) can muster that kind of power, cybernetic enhancements or not.
And here’s the Oldboy poster:
This one on the other hand, I’m kind of hoping isn’t really showing the tone that the movie is going to have. Though it does look very curious, there’s just something about it that is both too bright and too clever to be a match for the Park Chan-wook original. Supposedly we’ll be getting a trailer for this one in the next couple of days, and with a little luck that will give us a much better feel for this upcoming Josh Brolin starrer.
