This photoset is especially for the folks who voted for my next project to be Sam Wilson. So here he is…just in time for him to stop being Falcon and become the new Cap! (No rest for the wicked.) I went with a t-shirt and 511s instead of the official uniform. He was already going to be complicated, and he can go casual now too. His wings are detachable, and his guns are attached via little magnets. I hear Anthony Mackie’s sister knits. Maybe she will see this!
I can’t get over the idea of the “undo brainwashing video tutorial” being like a makeup tutorial or an unboxing video on youtube. It’s some teenager in a chair in front of their webcam in their bedroom giving tips on how to combat brainwashing, having to adjust the camera now and again, time-lapse interludes for the real work.
Someone finally giffed it. But LOOK AT THIS FIGHT. Honestly the Winter Soldier was far more on his back heel fighting Natasha than he was Steve this scene. First off, if he hadn’t managed to throw his hand up quickly, she would have garrotted him. She’s literally half his size (he throws her like a rag doll when he finally is able to get a hold of her) and she has him more at a disadvantage than Steve does, who is bigger than him. Next she shorts out his cyber arm (and I assume he has to electrocute himself to pull the thing off). By that second to the last gif his facial expression isn’t even stone cold killer any more, it’s more “REALLY??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” It’s the most human his eyes look up until Steve starts setting off his programing.
We talk about Steve and Bucky going toe to toe, but the one who really has the Winter Soldier’s number for most of their fight is Natasha.
