Production DesignAkira (1988)

As I originally developed [Akira], I used each issue to build more depth and size into this mammoth city [Neo-Tokyo]. I kept trying to achieve this by creating a variety of situations to stage the graphic storytelling. But with film you get to combine all this into one and I think that it is much more convincing on film than in a serialized comic strip. - director Katsuhiro Otomo; P.D. by Hiroshi Ohno, Yuji Ikehata and Kazuo Ebisawa

"[Sebastian]’s really got into it. He’s read all the comics already and spent the last year prepping by just immersing himself in Cold War history, to the point where he would comment on some of the stuff about the origin of the Winter Soldier that I put in the comic. He’d say, ‘Did you know that there really was a General assassinated back then?’ and I’d say, ‘Yes, that’s what I based it on - I took actual moments of history and put him into them.’ He was so into the ride and you couldn’t ask for more."

"Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit."

"The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) has done things that are far more heinous than anything Grant Ward has ever done as far as we know, and yet, at the end of the movie, you’re rooting for him to come back on the side of the angels,"

Well yeah because Bucky was brainwashed and waRD KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING THE WHOLE TIME WELL YOU KNOW WHAT? DAMN YOU WARD. GODDAMN YOU.

Loeb, take a little advice: SHUT YOUR GODDAMN TRAP.

Bucky Barnes was taken prisoner, mutilated, brainwashed, brain damaged, frozen and thawed in a vicious circle that did god only knows what damage, lied to, tortured, depersonalized and basically violated in all the ways a person can be violated.

Bucky Barnes is a victim.

Grant Ward did nothing he didn’t want to do. No one forced him to do anything.

Even Garrett did what? Pluck him out of jail, plop him in the woods, told him to survive and fucked off to occasionally reappear once every few months. Ward could have used that time to take his shit and do some fucking off of his own to do whatever he wished, but he didn’t.

He didn’t because for all his macho persona Grant Ward is actually weak and needed someone to tell him what to do and what to be.

Bucky was made into a tool by and for his torturers, Ward willingly made himself Garrett’s dog.

Bucky was made to do horrible things with no choice in the matter. Ward did horrible things because he was told to and he doesn’t care what those orders are, he does what he’s told.

Bucky only needed to see Steve for his mental conditioning to start breaking and to ultimately take his first steps into reclaiming himself, Ward went to pieces when there weren’t any orders to follow because he’s nothing without someone holding his leash and telling him what to do. He begged to be given a mission.

Bucky is a good man who was horribly victimized, Ward is an amoral psycho.

To even imagine comparing those two characters is an insult to anyone who watched CA: TWS and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and frankly anyone with a half-functioning brain.

I’m going for the superhero/Gatchaman thing…
