Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the Best 8-Bit Marvel Movie

captain america cinefix

Those devils at CineFix are at it again, this time taking their retro-inspired gaming talents to the greatest Marvel movie ever made in the history of the universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

We're big fans of CineFix's 8-bit remakes of classic films, and though Winter Soldier isn't quite as classic as Scarface or Titanic (yet), it's definitely one of the most memorable Marvel movies since the heroes started making the leap from the panel to the screen. Seeing many of the big moments from the feature film revisited here in a style reminiscent of Mega Man only served to remind us just how amazing Winter Soldier was, and still is today.

Greatest Best Favorite Avenger Final

thor-vs-cap

We finally stand at the cusp of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and after a month of asking you to vote in our favorite, best, greatest Avengers poll, it all comes down to this. These are the final two in the contest to determine which of over 100 Avengers members deserves bragging rights as the people's true champion. Is it Stingray? Or is it Moondragon?

Actually, despite our unsubtle lobbying for those two, you, the people, went in another direction. Captain America always seemed likely to make the final, and he's still surely the favorite. Most of us probably expected him to go toe-to-toe with Iron Man in a democratic remake of Civil War. But the semi-final between Thor and Iron Man went down to the wire, with one hero maintaining a hair's breadth lead over the other in the final hours, and now we can officially confirm that Iron Man... is out of the competition.

After selecting the best sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and the best comedies of the last 25 years, ScreenCrush decided the only logical way to wrap up the #CountdownToUltron and Avengers 2 was to choose the best superhero movies of the last 25 years as well. Initially, this was just supposed to be a brief essay. But on an innocent field trip to the world’s most advanced genetics lab, this blog post was bitten by a radioactive list and transformed into the gargantuan piece you see before you. On that day, we all learned a valuable lesson: That with great power must come great listicles.

As a tie-in to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Her Universe is collaborating with Marvel to create a line of Avengers-inspired apparel, available exclusively at Hot Topic.

Worst #1: Batman, Robin, and Batgirl, from ‘Batman & Robin’ (1997)
Warner Bros.

We’re a little over a week away from the biggest movie of the summer, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. In less than ten years, Marvel has built a powerful brand in Hollywood thanks to their great casting, sharp writing, and an ability to distill decades of comic books down to fun, accessible adventures. A big part of that translation process is the look of their movies, and particularly the look of their characters. And that’s all about costumes, which is a particular specialty of Marvel’s. Between Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the rest, they’ve got some sharp-dressed heroes.
