Captain America WILL Destory The Marvel Movie Universe....
Poor Decisions Could Make This Movie Worse Than The 1990 Version
I have been a long-time Captain America fan. I have always wanted my favorite hero to finally have a good movie. Captain America has never done well in film-whether it is in the old movie serials, the Reb Brown movies, or the horrid '90's movie.
I was excited about the possibility of a good-dare I hope great-Captain America movie once Marvel announced their plans for their movie universe. Unfortunately, Marvel has let me down yet again with their decision making from casting to director to story details.
Let me break it down for you:
Casting: Overall, I am pretty happy with the casting. There is just one major problem: Chris Evans is Captain America--I honestly believe that they needed to cast an unknown. Thor is gonna be huge because they cast an unknown and surrounded him with known and talented actors. That is what they should have done here.
Director: When it was first announced that Joe Johnston was going to direct, a lot of people were excited because he directed a period piece in "The Rocketeer." I just shook my head in disappointment at the choice. I own "The Rocketeer." It was a gift, and it is a horrible movie. This does not bode well in my opinion.
The Story: I am not thrilled with a lot of the story details that are coming out. The Red Skull is an ex-Nazi that leads Hydra? Ummmm...no. Captain America doing USO tours? No thanks, show his breaking up spy rings before he goes overseas. It doesn't sound like Baron Zemo is in this either, which means the Red Skull is going to be responsible for Captain America ending up in the ice. I think that sucks.
I hope this movie tanks and they recast for Avengers.
