While it’s not a big surprise that Russia opted to go with the name The First Avenger over Captain America, the fact that The Winter Soldier subtitle is being changed to The Other War is kind of surprising. Since The Winter Soldier is actually Captain America’s sidekick Bucky who was brainwashed by the Soviets, could it be that Russia didn’t want to highlight this character and his background in the title of the movie?
However, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is not the only upcoming Marvel movie that will be released with a different title in Russia. The Thor sequel will also have a slightly different title in Russia, even though its change is not as drastic as the Captain America sequel title change. Thor: The Dark World will instead be called Thor: The Kingdom Of Darkness in Russia.
