Marvel Comics has announced an ongoing Winter Soldier series by Ed Brubaker and Butch Guice to launch in February with covers by Lee Bermejo.
“I knew 90 percent of the angry ‘You killed Bucky’ fans were fans who were upset that I brought him back in the first place who I had won over,” Brubaker said. “Hopefully I will be able to win them back again.”
The series will touch on Bucky’s history from the Cold War and will feature Black Widow, and, to a lesser degree, Nick Fury.
We’ve known for a while that Nick Fury would be popping up in Captain America, and hoped and assumed that he’d be appearing in Thor, too. But we weren’t 100 percent sure until we heard Samuel L. Jackson say it himself.
Jackson appeared last night on Jimmy Fallon Live, where he dropped the news:
“In the next month or so, I have to do one day on Thor, and I got to do another day on Captain America, and in April we start The Avengers, the big deal with everybody. … Thor and Captain America are pretty much done, but I haven’t done my part in them yet. I’m just connective tissue for them to join The Avengers.”
Jackson also mentioned that on Friday he’d be screen-testing with five actresses, one of whom will get to play “my sidekick who’s with me all the time.” No word yet on which Marvel Comics character some lucky actress will get to bring to life.
