A mission before the film takes place...
Marvel has announced a new Infinite Comic, a prelude to Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is available now. The comic was written by Peter David with layouts by Daniel Govar and art by Rock-He Kim. Here are highlights of an interview with David:
On Cap's distrust of S.H.I.E.L.D.: "They know what S.H.I.E.L.D. has told them: that they're looking for the Zodiac, but they know little to nothing about it. To the Black Widow and Rumlow, that's fine. They're okay with doing what they're told. Cap, however, is way more suspicious and wants a clearer idea of what's going on, and is annoyed that S.H.I.E.L.D. isn't big on being forthcoming."
On Black Widow: "I think he sees her as a valued ally. But [he] tends to be suspicious of the outfit that she works for. He trusts her as someone to have his back in a fight, but I think also believes that if S.H.I.E.L.D. told her to put a knife in his back, she would do so without hesitation, and that can be problematic."
On working with Crossbones: "Rumlow, meantime, is an eager partner, but Cap doesn't trust him at all. First, there's the suspicion aspect. And second, I think Cap is still gun-shy because the last time he had a partner. Bucky wound up dying—or at least so he believes—and he's not anxious for history to repeat itself."
