↳ captain america: the winter soldier - nick fury is attacked
Look at this. JUST LOOK AT HOW FUCKING BADASS THIS IS.
But you still truly fear for him, because this shit happens right in the middle of a city in broad daylight, where they’re gonna riddle him with bullets and tear him into pieces. And how most people would then regard him simply as a common criminal rightfully pursued by the police, who deserved the very public execution he’s about to get.
There’s a lot to be said about how they chose the “police” machinery to take down Fury, while Steve and company was pursued by nondescript Hydra thugs and the presumably private STRIKE team. They would have absolutely no problem to murder Fury then and there, but with Steve they know they simply cannot do it when there are witnesses around.
Not here, they say for Steve Rogers. But right here and right now for Nick Fury.
I’d like to point out this was filmed in Cleveland, OH and I was in the city one day and thought, “Holy vitarays, the Fury chase from CA: TWS happened right here! Look there the bus stops in the middle of the road! Geezus, look over there! That’s where the truck comes out and smashes those cops!” It was fucking awesome.
