After finishing the fifth episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, I decided to watch a couple of movies highlighting three movies that feature Captain America in such a positive light; Captain America: The First Avenger, Avengers: Infinity War, and Endgame.
And, thinking of these movies, I decided to look back at my reviews of these three films, starting with this one. Enjoy!
Even though I’ve seen the movie before the last time I watched it was a long time ago so I forgot so much. This time I was able to fully concentrate on the film and it was kind of fascinating seeing all of the references that the later Marvel movies took from this one film. Like Captain America’s suit in The Avengers for example.
I never understood why Marvel would give him such a horrendous suit in The Avengers when his classic suit was clearly so much better. Today I just figured out the story behind the ultra tight Captain America outfit.
When Steve Rogers first became “Captain America” he was presented as a figure in advertisement to make people want to join the army and his suit was a super tight suit. When Agent Coulson told Steve that his new suit was fashioned off of the original design now I get it and I have to admit, that’s pretty cool.
His suit in The Avengers is still the wackest rendition of the iconic outfit but at least now I understand why it looks the way it does.
It’s Sam Wilson day (a birthday for the character, not the actor) and so because of such an occasion I thought it would be fun to highlight the fascinating character posters for the characters that will define the Captain America legacy due to their impact on the MCU (and yes, that means including John Walker too.) Enjoy!
Sam Wilson and Sharon Carter were sitting in the hotel room garnering as much information as they could about the terrorists and the potential motives behind their European raid when the door to the room opened. Jumping to their feet with their guns drawn they were prepared to eliminate the potential intruder but, to their relief, it was only Steve Rogers. They let their guard down and then was instantly surprised as Natasha Romanoff walked into the room shortly afterward.
Sharon smiled. Sam crossed his arms. As the door closed behind Natasha she nodded at Sam.
Natasha Romanoff sat in a bar located in a dark alley in New York City. The hood of her jacket helped cover her face as she downed a shot of vodka. Thankfully, she had gulped down enough vodka shots in her life to be used to the patented sensation.
“Hey, bartender.” She lifted her glass. “Another one.”
The bartender, a gruff-looking fellow, grunted as he took her glass and filled it with more of the clear liquid. She was about to take another sip when she noticed out of the corner of her eye two men at the end of the bar staring at her with those typical leering gazes that she had gotten more times than she could remember in her life. She sighed. She didn’t have time for this. There was too much on her mind. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (SIX)→
Steve Rogers turned on the television, his eyebrows furrowed as he hurriedly filtered through the stations until he found a news channel. The headlines read: EUROPE FALLS UNDER ATTACK BY WOMAN IN GOLDEN MASK.
Sharon Carter was already on the phone talking with her confidant, Baker.
“What’s going on?” she asked as she paced back and forth on the other side of the room. “Who is the woman in the golden mask?”
New York City was wide awake in the wee hours of the night as taxi cabs’ honks still filled the streets.
Using forged IDs and cash provided by Sharon’s only friend at Deputy Task Force–a man named Baker–she, Steve, and Sam were able to get themselves two rooms in a humble three-star hotel within Downtown New York City.
The day had been long and hectic, as expected, and Sharon Carter should’ve been asleep. Instead, she lied awake in bed gazing at the ceiling, the vacant space beside her becoming more apparent as the minutes passed. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (FOUR)→
