Captain America: Secret War (ONE)

To most, it seemed like a normal day in New York City but to Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter, they knew better. They walked the busy streets as normal as ever, their eyes locked on the world around them as if they were simple tourists, but they were really looking for three HYDRA agents whose next step in a diabolical plan was going to get thousands killed.

Captain America: Secret War Gets Two Teaser Posters

Remaining in theme with the first teaser poster I revealed yesterday this shows Captain America sprinkled by the embers of a rising flame. For Captain America, the fire represents the rise of the Secret Avengers. You see, in Captain America: Civil War, The Avengers crumbled but in Secret War they are returning from the ashes to help make the world a better place. Captain America, of course, leads the charge.

Is Captain America’s Selfless Heroism His Shining Triumph or a Narrative Failure?

A few weeks after watching Infinity War last year I wrote a post about Captain America’s storyline up to the point of Infinity War. It was one of the most fun posts I’ve ever written and now, after watching Endgame, it’s all the more telling. So, on that note, let’s revisit this post’s topic and see what new epiphanies I can find. Enjoy!

I watched Captain America: The Winter Soldier several days ago and after watching Endgame it’s been the first Marvel movie I’ve watched since then that focuses on this patriotic Avenger. As I watched the film and Steve Rogers I began to think to myself, Captain America is basically, in fictional terms, the perfect human being. He’s incredibly strong and fast, he’s handsome, he’s cordial, he does everything he possibly can to protect citizens from harm, he is what you would imagine Captain America to be. But is that a good thing or his biggest flaw?

One of the reasons why I didn’t like him that much in The Avengers (besides the terrible suit) is because he felt too uppity compared to the other Avengers. You see, every other member of the Avengers had flaws and they learned to deal with those flaws and could handle being in the presence of other imperfect beings like they were. Steve, on the other hand, is perfect, remember? He’s the poster boy for patriotism. He’s willing to sacrifice himself for the lives of others. And then you have characters like Tony Stark whose every other sentence is a joke and doesn’t take life very seriously. Steve was practically bursting at the seams with annoyance for Tony and Tony was feeling the same way about the stuck-up Captain America. And I was feeling the same way. Who was this guy who thought he was so much better than everyone else even though he clearly was the lamest of them all?

Here Are 5 Things I Can’t Wait to See in ‘Avengers 4’

I know it’s early to already start talking about Avengers 4. I mean, we haven’t even been given the title yet. But as the months draw closer to the film’s imminent release and my excitement grows I can’t help but share with you all the things I can’t wait to see in the film. So, on that note, let me share with you what I’m excited to see in Avengers 4.

1. Steve and Tony’s Reunion

The last time Steve Rogers and Tony Stark were in the same room it wasn’t pretty. After Tony discovered Steve had kept the awful truth of Tony’s parents’ death a secret from him he felt that he was betrayed and severed all friendly ties with his fellow Avenger, Captain America. With their friendship fractured Tony was totally prepared to never speak to or see Steve Rogers ever again but with the threat of Thanos upon Earth he was forced to confront the reality that he may need the patriotic hero’s help once more.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see that reunion in Avengers: Infinity War but that means when they finally do see each other again in Avengers 4 it’s going to be that much more heartfelt. Especially after the devastating events of the Infinity Snap Tony will probably be relieved to see that Steve didn’t disintegrate. I’m predicting many sniffles in the movie theaters during that heartwarming reunion.

Wow, ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ Is Kind of Good

It has been a glorious Saturday for me and what better to do on a Saturday morning than watch a good movie? I filed through Hulu, trying to find a film that I like, to a certain degree, but haven’t watched very often and I stopped on Captain America: The First Avenger. The last time I watched the film I enjoyed the first half but I kind of went blank on the second half of the movie. It seemed rushed, poorly edited, and a little bit corny, if I was being honest. But, for the most part, it is a Marvel movie (I love Marvel films) so I decided to give it a try today. I’m so glad I did.

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.
