Captain America 2 Is F'N Fantastic Says Ed Brubaker

Ed Brubaker, the Marvel comic book scribe known for his run on Captain America, helped out with the movie as well.

Brubaker lent his talents to Captain America 2 giving the Russo Brothers feedback about his thoughts on the movie.

He tells PasteMagazine that he thinks Captain America 2 is the best Marvel movie and also familiar to his own comic book writing, as well as being f-n fantastic.

I got to go out to Marvel Studios a couple months ago and read one of the later drafts of the script. I went out to dinner with [directors Joe and Anthony Russo] and talked about the project and gave them feedback on what I liked or didn’t like or what parts didn’t work. I mean, the script I read was fucking fantastic. It was the best Marvel movie. It was really strange because [the script] feels like my comic while not really telling the same story as my comic. It’s got moments here and there where I was like, ‘hey, I wrote that.’ But mostly, it’s not what people think it’s going to be. But the tone of it was so close to what [artist] Steve [Epting] and I were doing on that comic in the first few years, where it feels like an espionage story almost more than a superhero story [and] there’s tons of action in it. I can’t wait to see what they do with it.

Ed Brubaker also requested a cameo in Captain America 2, but jokes that he isn't sure if he will get one.

 I hope I get one. But I don’t know if I will. I requested to be hit in the face with the shield if possible, but we’ll see. [Laughs]

The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford.


Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
