If you’re a follower of comics, you know how hard it is sometimes to get the comics writer’s approval on a big-screen adaptation of their work. But for long-time Captain America writer Ed Brubaker, he says the script for the forthcoming Captain America: Winter Soldier is “perfect.” Brubaker talked about that and more in a far-ranging talk with USA Today’s Brian Truitt on Sunday.l
“I read the script [for Captain America: Winter Soldier] and I was really blown away by it,” Brubaker told USA Today. “The tone of it and the Bucky stuff is so perfect and the way I'd want it to be, I was so thrilled to see that. But to me the biggest thing, too, is it's the first time Marvel has put out a movie where there's a specific book the title of the movie relates to.”
During Brubaker’s seven year run on Marvel’s Captain America comic series, he reinvigorated the then-flagging comics title and brought a measured approach melding modern-day adventures with frequent ties back to the Super Soldier’s World War 2 roots. In addition to that, he created the Winter Soldier persona that long-thought-dead sidekick James “Bucky Barnes returned to comics in and which serves as the basis for this movie. Brubaker went on to write a solo Winter Soldier comic series in 2012.
