Godzilla TV Spots Ups the Tension

I really enjoyed this new TV commercial for the upcoming Godzilla reboot. There’s a lot of drama and tension in what goes unspoken between the characters. You will believe this is happening.

CONSTANTINE Pilot Sends People to Co-Creator

In the comics, Bucky did indeed take over for his mentor at one point, so it’s not an outrageous possibility.

But if you end up hating the Winter Soldier actor… well, these could be seven long movies…
