Ed Brubaker, the man who created the Winter Soldier character in the “Captain America” comics, is said to be very happy with the script for the upcoming film sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.
“I read the script and I was really blown away by it. 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.”
Brubaker and illustrator Steve Epting created the storyline in 2005 which turned Steve Rogers’ long-dead wartime friend Bucky Barnes into a troubled former assassin turned super soldier. There’s also one other reason Brubaker is so happy – money.
Marvel is planning to release a hardcover collection of the “Winter Soldier” storyline to tie-in with the movie:
“[This is the] first time Marvel has one specific book to point people to, as opposed to when X-Men: First Class came out and there’s 15 trade paperbacks and people who see the movie don’t know which one to pick up. So it’s exciting, as the guy who gets royalties for that book.”
