A Brief-But-Explosive Vid From The Filming Of CAPTAIN AMERICA!!

Merrick here...
An AICN reader called T-Barr sent in this brief clip of the filming of CAPTAIN AMERICA in UK (Manchester). This is what he saw when looking out of his office window. Right now I'm looking out of my window and see a scruffy squirrel charging towards our unprepared garbage man. T-Barr has the better view I think.

    as stated by DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson?<p>"People make an assumption that we're going to mirror Marvel's strategy, for example with Avengers," Nelson added. "We do have a very different attitude about how you build a content slate. And it isn't necessarily about connecting those properties together to build into a single thing. We think we've got great stories and characters that will lend themselves to great standalone experiences, and that's the way we're focusing on it."<p>Um, Marvel and DC copy each other all the time; Captain America and Batman "dying" and being resurrected in similar fashion.<p>Marvel doesn't have all their characters under one roof like Warner Bros. does. At least they're not afraid to take risks.<p>FIRE DIANE NELSON(FOX's Rothman now has company)!<p>

    In the last ten years they've modified the Yellow weakness. It was smartly connected with Fear which is represented by yellow in the spectrum (embodied by Parallax). The yellow weakness is essentially a rookie problem. Once they learn to overcome all fear the yellow weakness is a non issue.

    Christ, fanboys like you drive me up the goddam wall. You act like the strategy for film producing should be the same as comics producing, but they are two COMPLETELY different media. There's nothing wrong with her statement that they are pursuing a different movie slate strategy. We may all appreciate and enjoy the "shared universe" that Marvel is building into their movies, but you have to acknowledge that this also in many ways puts limitations on their narratives. In fact, many critics of Iron Man 2 pointed to what they felt were *distracting* references to the larger Marvel movie universe being built.

    wikipedia Cap's origin. To be brief, though: he got the super soldier serum in WW2 turning him from a wimp to a super powered stud. Was trained by the US Gov't and became Captain America. fought in every major ground offensive of WW2. Tried to disarm a bomb, got blown up over the arctic, frozen in ice, found and thawed in modern times. Ends up in modern times as the battle hardened 20 something year old from WW2 and living legend. Goes on to become leader of the Avengers, the world's greatest Marvel superteam.

    Yes, I understand a billionaire, one of the wealthiest.. most powerful men in the world.. is secretly a vigilante, who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his barehands is unrealistic. However, the STRUCTURE of Nolans films is far more adult than, let's say, the Fantastic Four or whatever straight-forward flashy "daring to dream a little bigger" CG "men" in tights flying around, combining to defeat the evil force that wants to destroy the WHOLE WORLD MUAHAHAHA!!! When viewed BELOW the superficial level of computer graphic whoring, there is an attempt at intricacy, politics, and grown men standing around talking. It's slow, and you have to somewhat pay attention on the first viewing to get all the nuances, instead of just a generic heartless thoughtless plotline that only exists to get to the next CGI eye-gasm "boom boom" or Scarlett Johansson's cleavage. But I apologize.. I understand these other comic book movies are considered "a testicular masterpiece of manish awesomery!!!" to many.

Wasn't there a deleted scene with Banner plodding throug the Arctic and there's a vague figure in an ice block? boosebaster - That's the Ultimates Cap. I'm sure they'll pinch a little storytelling from both regular and ultimate universes, but I doubt they'll use the asshole Cap, he needs to be likeable and I don't see Chris Evans pulling off being a gritty old-fashioned guy. Besides they'll probably put some stupid stuff in The Avengers with Cap's mind being blown with self flushing uinals, or some shit. Cap's not a comedian so the fanboys will hate(self included) but the masses will love it.

    hasn't been proven successful, Thanos

    by mrgray

    The Marvel "shared universe" concept HASN'T been proven successful yet. Not by any stretch of the imagination. The DC Entertainment unconnected single slate is actually the more "successful" strategy since an individual slate is what has driven the MOVIE business (note I said MOVIE because we're talking MOVIES not COMICS) since the beginning. It boggles my mind that comic fanboys think that just because a particular strategy works in comic publishing that it'll work in film production. They are two different worlds. And insisting that the comic publishing strategy is the best when it's COMPLETELY UNTESTED AS OF YET is silly. You have NO basis for your opinion, whereas Diane Nelson has THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF FILM to back up hers. Will Marvel's strategy prove successful and lucrative? Could be. Until then? Shut up.

    by mrgray

    Sorry, buddy, but I actually think The Dark Knight is horribly flawed. And one of the reasons I feel this way is that it tries to pass itself off as "thoughtful" or "deep" or "adult" or "thinking man's comic book movie" when in reality it's just as silly and stupid as many of the worst comic book adaptations. It just hides that silliness behind a grim'n'gritty veneer of over-simplified, ham-handed terrorism metaphors. It's not all bad by any means, just fundamentally flawed and WAAAAAAY overrated.

    Evans has really bulked up

    Hope the steroids don't destroy his nards.<p>That's a hell of a lot of makeup, too. I wonder if this sequence will be in B&W in the finished film.

    Oh for sure, it definitely has its flaws.. but that's ok, I love any discussion about TDK.. did you have some uberpost or something breaking it down, but I understand where you're coming from. Because I can take it. <p><p>"Perhaps CT1, believes that Batman stands for something more important, than the whims of a talkback poster, Ms. Dawes.. even if everyone hates him for it. That's the sacrifice he's making.. he's not being a hero. He's being something more."
