Well, they can't all be Noah, but then again, they all don't need to be Vampire Academy, either. On the spectrum of the Marvel Comics franchise films, Captain America: The Winter Soldier doesn't reach the cinematic heights of the Raimi Spider-Mans (oh, okay, the first two Spider-Mans) or Whedon's The Avengers, but doesn't crater out anywhere near the Thor or (shudder) Fantastic Four efforts.
