tony stark’s story is about second chances and recovery and how you can turn your life around no matter how much you’ve fucked up before and that’s why he’s so important to me.
and why RDJ was the perfect choice to play him
Look at the last gif. Right after Steve has called The Winter Soldier by a name something about him changes. It’s slight, just a shift in the cold, hard and determined personality we’ve come to know in the Winter Soldier, but it’s there. He hesitates, falters even. In that instant, he stops being the Winter Soldier. Because the Winter Soldier does not hesitate. Does not falter. Does not stop until his mission is complete. No, he’s not Bucky there, but neither is he the Winter Soldier.
When Steve gives him that name, a name the Winter Soldier quite honestly doesn’t know at all, he also gives him something he’s been denied for decades. Steve gives him an identity. I highly doubt the Winter Soldier knows that’s what he’s been given, but he knows that something about him has changed. Here is this man, the target the Winter Soldier been sent to kill, that has probably given him the biggest problem in all his missions, and he stops his fighting to call him by a name. That probably doesn’t make any sense at all to the Winter Soldier—why would someone stop fighting him just to do that, especially when it means nothing to him? But somewhere buried deep inside of him, it means enough to break through Hydra’s programming, even if just for a split second—that second he hesitates.
He even does the eye flick in the last one. The kind you do when your trying really hard to remember somethingAnd there is Steve who is about to get shot and doesn’t even care at that point
