The Captain is officially back, and he's bringing his magic shield/tray with him for the latest addition to the Marvel universe. In case you were unaware, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (starring Chris Evans) came out this past Friday. Haven't made it to the movies yet or aren't convinced this one's for you? Educate yourself on some facts to impress your friends and family:
1. To stop snooping journalists and fanboys, the working title of the film was "freezer burn."
2. Former UFC welter-weight champion, George St-Pierre, appears in the film as Batroc the Leaper.
3. Robert Redford apparently wanted to do the film because his grandchildren are Marvel fans, and he wanted them to see him in one. Sweet.
4. The man who created the Winter Soldier character, Ed Brubaker, makes a cameo, as does Marvel head honcho Stan Lee.
5. Other new superheroes/villains, include The Falcon, Crossbones and Batroc the Leaper, who, unsurprisingly, likes to leap.
