    It isn't! This is the point I am attempting to make against the video and the clueless personality who asked the question!

    The questions were probably pre-planned without seeing any costumes or character designs.

    I like the positive buzz, but I'm going to wait until actual legitimate film critics say their piece on it. Then I can judge them mercilessly.

    Dude, it's Disney Channel On-The-Set, not exactly top-tier newscasting. ;)

    So, after the special there is no question Marvel doesn't care about preserving TWS's ID anymore (they've at least walked the edge of "most people won't recognize Bucky in this" so far).

    But a lot of kids in their target demographic know the difference between having actual superpowers and having a suit that enables you to do stuff (like Iron Man).

    They spent several minutes on explicitly making the connection, saying his name, shoeing images from the comic and showing footage of him from Cap 1 and explaining what happened to him to turn him into TWS.

    So, yeah, Marvel definitely doesn't consider it a spoiler.

    My mom called me (It's currently airing back home) and was all abuzz about the fact that Bucky is the Winter Soldier.

    Conclusion: everyone and their mother knows it.

    I only saw the original once and didn't even like it, but I still remember him.

    Talk of Captain America 3 plot threads.

    "We've definitely set out on a more realistic road in the Cap movies, you know. Even more grounded than in the other MCU movies. And so it kind of rules out Cap fighting the Dinosaur Man or something like that.

    There are some that aren't gonna start and other ones that -- I mean there's a couple we're playing with right now that we really want to take elements from. Which we'll not reveal. All I'm saying is psychotic 1950s Cap."
    ...

    "Oh yeah, you can probably predict some of the threads we would like to pick up again that we've laid out there. And we always go back to the comics and dive back in and look at anything we've missed in the last few years that might be relevant."
    ...

    "We didn't want to bring back the Skull so soon... Let alone have him inside the head of somebody else. There were just some things that would be much tougher to do on screen as they are in the comic... I only said that because I think it's fairly clear he didn't die in that first movie but [frick]ed off into Wonderland."
