That spear was unusual brutal for a mcu fight scene


harshalax31

The Captain America movies are all the most brutal in the MCU. Body counts are high. Naturally this captain America spin-off would be the same


lumberzach316

Iron Man 1 and 3 are pretty brutal as well (as far as villains killed by hero). Less realistic though.


PKPIKES

You’re so right. Especially in the first one where the Hydra soldier falls into the propellers.


whatsinthesocks

Yep, the first two have a guy getting sucked into a jet engine.


yeahalrightwhatever

Someone didn't watch the Punisher


agentfitzsimmons

The Punisher isn’t considered a part of the MCU.


yeahalrightwhatever

Wait what since when? I didn't know that. That seems a little silly they wouldn't include it.


SnowCold93

The punisher is a marvel character but it’s not part of the cinematic universe since it was a Netflix show


yeahalrightwhatever

Okay, but daredevil mentions "the incident" AND sokovia. It stands to reason its all at least loosely connected.


SnowCold93

It’s connected from the Netflix side where they reference it, but not from the marvel side if that makes sense


yeahalrightwhatever

I get what you're saying, but I don't understand WHY lol why not just make it all canon?


64473P

They probably don’t want to have to put an R rating on avenger movies?


madbadger89

Nah deadpool 3 is confirmed MCU and R-rating. Its part of the 'not MCU' tv shows they did. Anything before disneyplus isn't technically MCU (Feige-verse).


agentfitzsimmons

Yup, exactly. Thought Feige has recently commented on that and said that he wants to reinstate some of the Netflix and possibly ABC Marvel characters into MCU. For example it’s been nearly confirmed that Charlie Cox will appear as Matt Murdoch/ Daredevil in Spider-Man: No Way Home. So, that should be at least a start. We’ll see what happens eventually.


madbadger89

For sure, there is definitely some gold in those netflix shows, and I trust Feige to incorporate them as needed.


Zerphses

Right? I thought maybe it'd just pin her jacket to the container... nope! Straight through the shoulder.


Flyfires1

I’m still surprised they should the decapitation of Thanos, which is pretty brutal


BaIerion

I don't think the decapitation has anything on Loki getting choked out in IW. I was extremely surprised they put that in a Marvel pg13 movie. It looks so graphic and brutal, it almost made me a bit uncomfortable just because it was so unexpected.


zKerekess

I agree. But with the choking of Loki and the decapitation of Thanos it somewhat felt different, for me mainly because Thanos is one big blob of CGI and Loki was clearly in a lot of make-up. So even 13 year olds could see that. There was also a lot of drama around it what made the violance, more acceptable I guess? But this spearthrow however felt more real and it was very clear that it was intentional to hurt somebody in a brutal way. With some visible blood it could as well been something that happened in a John Wick movie.


Balls_inc

Funny enough, this episode was written by the same guy who helped write the Wick movies


Spontanemoose

I knew it! The whole time I watched that episode it felt like a less smooth John Wick.


your_mind_aches

Someone could literally get impaled like this in real life though it's more likely to be an accident than be thrown by someone


timko20677

The way his legs were kicking as lifted him up as he strangled him is what stuck with me. As if he was trying to run away. That coupled with the final crack of his neck made Loki’s death one of the most brutal in the MCU.


ladygrndr

IMO. Loki's actual death HAD to be brutal and leave no doubt that it was the real Loki, and he had really been murdered. We had seen Loki "die" to often, and so had Thor. If Loki hadn't died in exactly that way, the audience would have been holding out hope for the rest of the movie(s) that he'd find some sneaky way to come back out of hiding and help. I mean, as it is, he's sneaky enough that a Variant of him escaped and earned his own TV show, so... :P


tfhdeathua

You were so concerned with whether or not you could that you never stopped to think whether you should.


ColorClassic2

But there was no purple soda fountain.


Antrikshy

Lots of people getting visibly shot to death in that episode too.


Beerbrewing

Yep, but no blood or splattering body parts. The violence is brutal but not graphically so.


fifthdayofmay

There was some blood on the scientist


irridescentsong

Quite a bit of it. Not a normal amount for being shot, but definitely more than some of the tamer (and by that I mean more family friendly) MCU components.


your_mind_aches

I was confused how he was bleeding from his mouth if he got shot in the torso, but then I realised the bullet probably pierced his oesophagus and the blood rose up into his mouth


Zosoj

The look on Bucky's face when he reliased the damage he'd caused was the perfect expression of contradictionary thoughts and emotions he must have had in that split second.


kht777

I loved how they can be a bit more brutal and hint at things since it’s technically TV-14, which can be a bit darker since it’s tv and not PG-13, which usually try to be safer with movie audiences.


your_mind_aches

They're still not quite as brutal as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got away with on a TV-PG rating though. Lots of blood and explicit knife and bullet wounds, Jiaying's vivisection, the rusty nail inside the fingernails torture scene. And then when they amped up to TV-14 for the Ghost Rider arc there was even more. Robbie was burning folks.


kht777

Oh wow, I had never watched Agents of Shield! I need to check it out. I loved Daredevil and if they continue this tv show thing, I'd love for Charlie Cox as DD to come back.


your_mind_aches

You have absolutely got to watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Still tops my list of best MCU things


pandamonstre

~~it was pretty hot though~~


HonestCentrist

TV is rated 14 unlike the movies' 13


indyK1ng

"Farming"


ihaveanairhead

*goating


Dadalot

A man of your talents


Silver-ishWolfe

It’s a peaceful life.


cobalt82302

everytime Bucky does something cool I’m reminded of how much of a badass he is. Like you see him cracking jokes and next thing hes nailing peoples into walls. Idk where im going with this but hes becoming one of my top mcu characters


irridescentsong

He is my favorite male MCU/Marvel character. (Natasha is my favorite female MCU/Marvel character.)


agentfitzsimmons

Hey, I completely understand you! I feel completely the same. I’ve sorta liked Bucky, but this show makes an excellent job of making me like him more and more. He’s just awesome. And Sebastian Stan does a great job with his portrayal.


QSB59

Yeah whenever I rewatch his fight scenes as the Winter Soldier I remember how insane and badass he is. He’s definitely more tame as Bucky but still got it in him.


TheJuiceIsNowLoose

Probably the same fight choreographer. You see similar moves throughout the movies.


God_is_carnage

Didn't Ant-Man do the Black Widow scissor kick once?


1Fower

I don’t know, but wasp has.


theepicpander

he did it on falcon


ihaveanairhead

it’s not simply the choreographer, the fight’s designed intentionally to look similar


[deleted]

Source?


AntOnReddits

I think they meant that, during that time Bucky probably trained with the wakandans so he must have learned some of their moves too


Ark76RageMonster

>the fight is designed intentionally In case you cant read


twangman88

They called him the white wolf earlier in the episode and mentioned wakanda a bunch. They’re definitely trying to tie Bucky to wakanda.


[deleted]

Lmao okay buddy. Theory not source.


twangman88

That’s the source for the theory. Welcome to talking about shows on the internet.


HotlineSynthesis

Absolute BS. Downvoted? Really? You marvel nerds think these are the most meticulously planned out movies ever


Crosgaard

They are throughout all what, 23 movies and the 8 series (I can remember). There are small hints and Easter eggs such as cap holding the car door on a “poster” in TF&TWS which was the one cap held in the first captain America. In Wanda vision, the adds are mainly hydra, Jimmy (the FBI guy in ant man and Wandavision) learned a card trick throughout multiple movies and so on. I agree with OP that this was probably intentional, but no one can know for sure. Still, marvel *is* some of the “most planned out movies ever” imo or at the very least, really well thought through, from the big combined story line to even the tiniest details


HotlineSynthesis

It’s callbacks over planning. It’s easy to call back to something over plan for it ahead of time.


Crosgaard

Wouldn’t it then be callbacks if this spear thing was intentional tho?


definitely_a_human01

If you think it’s a callback, then you agree it was intentional. I don’t think it was coincidence that Bucky threw a spear in an episode where they reference Wakanda a bunch.


lolbro134

Let me guess your new to the mcu?


HotlineSynthesis

Nope


lolbro134

It's clear you are


HotlineSynthesis

Thanks for deciding that for me


Ark76RageMonster

No no this OP was actually on set ....... or is the director or some shit /s


Zosoj

There's a lot I want to see from Wakanda. The look of respect and acknowledgement Bucky gave Ayo is the sort of look between equals with history that makes up the best MCU relationships (eg Steve / Tony, Hawkeye / Black Widow).


capitaine_d

And thats why i love the MCU. You can do that. Its so massive and expansive and intertwined that two characters with no screen time together can have a meaningful interaction with history behind it.


your_mind_aches

I don't think they have history. Bucky was hanging out with the border tribe and Shuri. He probably just figured a Wakandan would show up in general


alpacasaurusrex42

I yelled when he harpooned her like that & out loud just said “Welp, she’s never using that shoulder again.”


tfhdeathua

But she will always have a core sample of it.


CMelody

NGL, as much as I love Winter Soldier, I would totally watch Sebastian Stan starring in Bucky the One Armed Goat Herder.


marns28

I really enjoy his face in the 2nd pic


13WillieBeaman

Lol, “John Matrixing.”’ Lol, and since we’re on the subject of Arnold, let’s bring the Predators into the MCU so we can make Dutch canon. Bring those Arnold one liners into the MCU. “Let off some steam, Bennett!”


Ecto1zz

Let off some steam Bennett.


13WillieBeaman

“Daddy?!”


Ecto1zz

NOH..nawt daddeh.


RigasTelRuun

Thats all I could think of too when I seen that.


13WillieBeaman

Lol, yea. It’s embedded into my memory as well!


RigasTelRuun

Remember, Zemo, when I promised to kill you last? I lied.


13WillieBeaman

Lol, I’d laugh if they referenced that. (Bucky holding Zemo over a cliff with his real arm), “I have to remind you Zemo, this is my weak arm!” 🤣


RigasTelRuun

I could see Zemo pulling off the he’s dead tired about someone recently murdered.


Craqhed387

Remember when I said ai would kill you last?.... I lied


13WillieBeaman

“UHHHLAALAAAAAAuuaaaa!!!”


Zosoj

Great catch with the Okoye parallel


victorvox

Farewell to Arms


stephencua2001

"Bucky-san, show me 'Till Field'."


delphic0n

See ya Rule 2


Swan_Lady

Didn´t even catch that, but love that parallel!!! Also, his face in the second photo is amazing :D


TheGuardianR

This isn't criticism, but it kinda looks like Bucky and Sam are beating up a lot of women in this show. In several tv spots and trailers I've seen them knocking down and kicking women


TheFantasticXman1

And? Those women were either bounty hunters trying to kill them or shady people up to no good. They deserved a beat up just as much as their male counterparts. It's not like they were going round beating innocent women.


TheGuardianR

Oh no, I'm not saying it isn't allowed or something. It's just something I noticed


TheFantasticXman1

I never noticed. Just saw it as them beating up bad guys.


Silver-ishWolfe

Bad “people”. Watch the patriarchy stuff bud.... /s just in case it wasn’t obvious.


TheFantasticXman1

I got it dw!


FH-7497

Since Luke Cage S2 I’ve noticed more and more female presenting henchmen getting their asses kicked by the heroes in Marvel stuff. Women can be can be anything now, including nameless goons meant purely for action fodder lol


TheGuardianR

Yeah, you're right


enchantrem

If it's not a criticism, what is it? I observed that characters seem to constantly wear clothes. Is there some secret pro-clothing agenda at play?


TheGuardianR

Jut like you said, it's just a observation.


enchantrem

And what, if anything, do you suspect to be the meaning behind it? Is the show secretly saying that women deserve to be beat up by strong men? Or maybe we've just reached a point where generic bad guys can be of either gender.


JediMasterVII

Unsure why you’re being downvoted, you’re right. I’ve never seen as many femme-presenting perps in Marvel than the last episode.


lolbro134

I mean women litterally are half the population so like that they would at least a couple


JediMasterVII

I mean yeah but I’ve never seen them casted before?


turnsthelegstojelly

Okoye would whip Buckys ass if they fought


ihaveanairhead

I don't think Bucky could actually throw a hard punch towards women, he grew up in a time when chivalry is not dead :))


Southern_Blue

I don't think he would throw a punch at Okoye because he's a military man and she's a general.


FH-7497

Ayo was who showed up. Just like in Civil War


FH-7497

Yo he cold strangled a woman after running her car off the road and murdering her husband in front of her..


ihaveanairhead

Bro that’s the winter soldier... not bucky...


cowboy_communist

he can throw a spear thru their shoulder but couldn't throw a hard punch :))
