We’re over the half-way mark in Marvel’s Phase two leading up to the second Avengers film, and I’d say none of the films has been so anticipated as the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger. Not just because the success of the original, but because the sequel is based on one of the best superhero comic runs ever, that it has the Black Widow as a main character (rowr), and that it introduces Anthony Mackie as the BEST Cap side-kick ever, The Falcon.

But will all this pedigree lead up to The Winter Soldier actually being as good as some are saying? Will directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who have more experience in TV, be able to cut it as the helmers of a huge Marvel action flick? Fear no more, as the Unusual Suspects are here to dish the dish. Richard, Chris, Brian and Beau fanboy up on our review of Cap 2.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
