The Winter Soldier
In the wake of Bucky Barnes confronting Steve Rogers for the first time as the Winter Soldier, a major character arc for Cap's former partner kicked off, one which stretched out for several years. Under the guiding hand of writer Ed Brubaker, the Winter Soldier became a major player in the Marvel comic universe, even becoming Captain America for a lengthy period of time. There is an amazing amount of gripping material to be explored with the Winter Soldier, including his past as a Soviet Agent that can easily tie into the back story of Natasha Romanov. Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada teased huge things coming for the Black Widow post "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and while a solo turn would be great, her story could also easily continue in a Bucky Barnes-headlining film. Quite simply, for a character who's been a modern comics staple for less than a decade, there is so much choice Winter Soldier material to explore that a movie spinning out of the events of the new "Captain America" film would be a natural narrative progression.
