Because as much as I now like the look of the WW2-era setting, there's not going to be much suspense when a revived Cap is running around in The Avengers, set in 2012. How about some neat, extended flashback sequences, or something?
Feb. 11, 2011, 12:48 p.m. CST
Unless there is a substantial amount of time between the creation of Cap and the freezing at the end. There needs to be yeaaaaars worth of WWII material to cover.
Feb. 11, 2011, 12:48 p.m. CST
Let's see if they set up for that in this film.
Feb. 11, 2011, 12:48 p.m. CST
Tony's submarine will see the rogercicle, thaw him out and extend an invitation for Stevie to join Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Nuff Said.
Feb. 11, 2011, 12:56 p.m. CST
Give me present-day Cap dealing with a modern day Baron Helmut Zemo interwoven with flashbacks to his conflict with his ancestor Baron Heinrich Zemo in the War. (I know Heinrich survived until the 60's in the comics, but not everyone needs to have an artificially extended long life... plus ancestor Helmut made good on the Baron's name with the Thunderbolts.) This is assuming, of course, that they were smart enough to leave some unexplored missions in the first Cap film. I know they're showing his start, and presumably him being frozen, but hopefully it's not story straight through from one to the other... Even a montage of newspaper headlines showing his exploits and growing fame would leave an opening. And as for staying power, I'd say Cap's 70 years holds up pretty well against Superman's 73.
Feb. 11, 2011, 1:05 p.m. CST
...but it's easy enough to guess. No freezing. Cap will be transported through time via the Cosmic Cube as part of the climax of their battle. Why else introduce such a science fiction-y device into the film if not to explain the time travel to an audience too sophisticated to accept the improbable ice cube suspended animation?

But will accept a tiny, skinny guy being put into an electric coffin and gaining 100 lbs of muscle mass in seconds? I think the people lining up for this are willing to meet some pretty outlandish premises halfway. Yeah, they may indeed come up with a more elaborate method of putting Cap in suspended animation, but my guess is he's going to get frozen for the better part of 70 years instead of time travel. This is reinforced by the Hulk extra that showed a frozen Cap as well as the SHIELD map in Iron Man 2 that had a point of interest marked in the artic. It seems pretty clear that their intent is to have Cap discovered in the ice. When they're ready to introduce time travel, they'll start dropping hints about Kang... and personally, I think that's something they should start doing in the first Avengers movie. No Kang appearance yet, just nods to oddities and inconsistencies in the timeline.

time travel *and* freezing, but it's most likely that Steve's trip to the 21st century will follow directly from events in the climax of the film. That is, it's very unlikely that they'd tell the story of Cap v. Skull, and then tack on an unrelated bit that relates how Cap got frozen years later; that'd be way too disjointed, it seems to me. I'd bet that there will be no room for more WWII adventures: the time shift will be a consequence of the climactic encounter. Since they've already got the Cosmic Cube in play (and since they have to show it doing something suitably "cosmic" at some point in the film, most likely in the climactic scenes), it would seem the Cube is the most efficient tool to use (rather than set up some excuse for Steve to get popsicled). They're certainly not committed to deleted Hulk scenes, nor to an Easter egg map in Iron Man, but if they wanted to preserve a stronger link to the classic version of the story, the Cube could transport him from WWII Europe into the center of a glacier in 2011.

66 years ago, a skinny, 4F reject is walking slowly out of an Army recruiting center. Rejected yet again, his only hope of seeing action in Europe would be to disguise himself as a transvestite and fuck drunk horny sailors. He dismisses that thought – although not too quickly. When suddenly, he is confronted by a four star General and two white coated evil looking old men. The General pulls him into an empty office and wastes no time saying ‘Rogers, you’re a waste of skin, the only way you would see action in Europe is if you put on a skirt and wig, shaved your legs, and bent over in front of some drunk sailors. But, I can change that. These men here are scientists and we have a proposition for you! Don’t look at me like that, I aint talking that kind of proposition you prevert! These men have invented a super soldier formula that can turn you into the greatest fighting weapon ever created by man. But it’s dangerous, and stupid, it could kill you and might make your testicles shrink. We want you to volunteer. But it you don’t we will kill you on the spot because this is top secret. You have five seconds to decide, and four are already gone. ‘ I’ll do it!’ Rogers screams, just as the General was cocking his 45. ‘Shit’, the General mutters under his breath. ‘Oh well, Lucy I’ll get you another one soon baby, don’t you worry. I’ll get you another one soon.’ The four sped off and arrived at the lab, which is nothing more than a converted barn. It has one inhabitant, the famed racing stallion War Admiral. He does not look happy. The taller scientist spoke ‘You may be asking, vy are ve in a barn?’ Rogers, did not question why the lab was in a barn, but he did wonder why the scientist spoke with such strange accent. ‘Oh, dis is how everyone in vishconin shpeaks! So, the reason vy ve are in a barn is because the formula needed to be kree-aaated in an animal, und a horse was ze best choice. But to get ze formula from ze horse into a hooman, requires, that you must drink ze formula straight from ze horse!’ ‘Drink from a horse?’ Rogers thought, ‘What? How?’, ‘vell’ the shorter scientist said, the best und only way is to drink straight from ze horses um, tallyvacker! Ya. You must suck ze formula straight from ze horses, um shvantz!’ Rogers was about to run away, when the General pulled out his 45 and began muttering, ‘soon Lucy, very soon’, then he stroked the pistol in a very loving way, Rogers immediately began sucking on war Admirals, shvantz, and the horse did what horses do, he erupted, and as Rogers gobbled down the super serum, he felt an immediate change come over him. The shorter scientist said under his breath ‘ Villy, you know ve could haf jest given him an injection’. The taller one replied. ‘ya, volfie, but it vould not be as funny!’

I can see the wasp on Tony's sub - his submarine that is, when cap's frozen, rock hard body is pulled on-board. While the other avengers mull over what to do, Ms Van Dyne still seething and resentful because hank pyms giant man juice only works on his extremities, and not on his teeny tallywhacker, becomes hot and bothered by the rock hard Cap. She rides his frozen 'corpse' until he warms up and gets some for the first time in 20 years
Feb. 11, 2011, 2:22 p.m. CST
I do think the film will climax with his last moments "alive" in the 40's, only to have him wake up in present day. I'm just hoping that, rather than one, uninterrupted adventure, they allow for some passage of time in the middle. Have Cap first exposed to the world at large, then... hell, give us a montage of Cap and the Howling commandos kicking ass on multiple missions. Spinning newspapers with headlines like "Cap Busts Nazi Spy Ring!" and ones that update us on the progress of the war. Show them hunting for the Red Skull but always being a few steps behind him. Or something far less cliche'... Whatever... Pick up the story again with a more war-weary and experienced Captain America as they finally get the lead to catch up to the Skull and then charge through to the final confrontation. There are plenty of ways various War films have covered their characters through years of the war to show how they came in as raw recruits and left as grizzled veterans. Such an approach would leave the chance to revisit WWII for flashbacks to those unseen missions. I also readily believe that you're right, and that the cosmic cube and/or its destruction will directly cause Cap's freezing... I'm just betting they *will* freeze him and dump his body in the artic, though.
Feb. 11, 2011, 2:29 p.m. CST
better get them sequels started he got a lotta movies to make.
Feb. 11, 2011, 2:36 p.m. CST
I swear to god I saw several preview clips a couple of months ago and was not impressed — but after watching the show a couple of times I could not believe how really, really good it is! The voice acting is 5-star... the plot-lines are pretty great... and there are constant nods to, and appearances of, 3rd and 4th tier characters... they even have villains like Zzzaxx, Ultron, Kang, etc. All kinds of crazy shit going on! Check it out if you don't believe me — the show kicks serious ass!!

The World War 2 stuff was decent enough but rather bloodless with no sense of peril. The Red Skull's plan was absurd and kinda took me out of the film. Hugo Weaving did a good job but the final fight scene between the Skull and Cap was poorly edited and hard to follow. The lack of actual Nazis in the movie was a major letdown and obviously due to excecutive and toy company meddling. The costume looked alright but the voice just didn't do it for me. This wasn't the Steve Rogers I grew up with. Tommy Lee Jones was underused and his character was nothing more than a cameo. The shield looked good but he should have thrown it more. Cap falling into the ocean at the end was a weak way to close the film as I was hoping for more World War 2 stuff in the sequel. Joe Johnston proves once more that he's a bland director that plays it safe every time. SPOILER: Stay through the end credits to see Cap's frozen body being discoverd by a modern day helicopter crew.
Feb. 11, 2011, 2:53 p.m. CST
Hope it's better than that.
Feb. 11, 2011, 2:59 p.m. CST
Yeah, Cap wasn't in the top 20's during the 80's and 90's mostly because the masses flocked to buy every X-men comic (spin offs,etc.) that was out. However, the Comic had great runs from the Mike Zeck era to Mark Gruenwald's entertaining stories. (John Walker=Captain American Psycho.) I'm sure between the noted exceptions of Swamp Thing,MiracleMan,etc there was alot of books that did not deserve the top 20 spot IMO.
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:04 p.m. CST
With the noted exception of Ironman sounding like Jack Black impersonating RDJ. otherwise Yeah, I'm down with that.
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:10 p.m. CST
There is only one thing better than a Super Solider Captain and that is Super Soldier Sergeant Major and his rag tag group of Super Solider Sergeants! So when Captain America runs into the Red Skull's Top Lieutenant, Big Brain Bluenheimer, he calls in the help of Sergeant Major Sergeant Sergeant and The Super Sergeants! Together they will defeat the enemies of liberty and justice for all!
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:10 p.m. CST
I stand corrected. You are right... forgot about the weak RDJ impersonation... I've seen probably 12 or so episodes and I enjoyed almost all of them. Ever see the one with the magnetized dude (forget his name... Magnetron?)? That one was a TRIP — couldn't believe how much chaos they animated for some of those fight sequences...
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:20 p.m. CST
... with Captain America being found in modern times. Otherwise, you're going to take up too much of the Avengers with that, and I assume they are more interested in getting the ensemble together and getting the plot going than spending <some indeterminate amount of time> dealing with finding Cap.
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:25 p.m. CST
and yes, it was a good episode.Avengers is no JLU, but it's still one of the best marvel animated series ever.
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:31 p.m. CST
If it weren't for the fact that DC/WB consistently, CONSISTENTLY, kick Marvels ass in the animated arena. Both in quality of writing and in animation. Even Marvels direct to DVD stuff is horrible by comparison (by comparison, mind you). It's actually rather insulting to fans of Marvel Comics. They really don't even seem to be trying. You would think just a competitive spirit would drive them do better.

Seriously. How do you make a sequel that outshines the original? Have the shoot co-ordinator who organised Spielberg's beach scene from Private Ryan do the battle scenes for the Captain America sequel. I want to see Captain America kick the ass of a full squadron of nazis at Dunkirk. Best way to visualise it is like Brad Pitt's Achilles in Troy storming the beach by himself. Except its Captain America. And with guns. Even Michael Bay & his CGI cumshot team would be in awe of this. Make it happen Marvel!!
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:40 p.m. CST
e-yup it was good! And re: your comparison to JLU, I agree with you 100% on that as well. I think I was hesitant to follow the new Avengers cartoon for two reasons. 1) I rarely watch animated hero shows and 2) I did not really like the inferior character designs (when compared to JLU and Bruce Timm's work in general) But my interest increased dramatically once I watched a couple of episodes and saw what they were doing plot-wise and the constant appearance of oddball characters. I'm a Marvel fan — primarily of work from the years 1972 - the early 80's. So I'm kinda old. But I am someone who can really appreciate what they are doing with this new Avengers series... can't wait for Ultron to come unglued and go crazy! Also hoping this thing runs long enough for them to introduce the Vision and Scarlet Witch. Oh man. What I would give........
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:44 p.m. CST
I'm very happy to hear that Captain America will be getting a sequel. Even though I am a Canadian, I've always loved the character. He has the best aspects of Batman and Superman combined. He's basically just an ordinary man who uses his brain and skills like Batman (with his shield being the equivalent of Batman's batarangs), but also shares the "Truth, Justice and the American Way" patriotism of Superman. I will say that I would prefer the sequel to be set during World War II, and if this is the case, the most logical villain(s) would be Baron Zemo or Baron Blood (as a response to Twilight fans to show them what a movie vampire should look like). If, however, the filmmakers choose to set it in the modern world, then my vote would be for Madame Hydra and the Serpent Society or the Hate Monger - if only for the final reveal of his identity. Oh, and the race issues would be a great way to introduce the Falcon. What would you like to see?
Feb. 11, 2011, 3:47 p.m. CST
You're dead-on with that comparison. Have you actually watched more than a couple of episodes? If you're a Marvel fanatic you HAVE to concede that what they are doing is pretty ballsy. Giving us awesome plot-lines... throwing in obscure shit like Baron Zemo, Zzzaxx, etc etc... lots of cool unexpectedness!

It actually seems like that shot of Cap and the Howling Commandos barging through a doorway in the trailer is from a montage. It just seemed a little more stylized than some of the other shots. I hope this is the case because I want the tone to be a little more "real" than that shot. And like it's been said, a montage opens up room for more WWII adventures for the Cap sequels.

Interesting story about that. The night before a friend is shipping of to Afghanistan our group of friends decides to get dinner and see a movie. These imbeciles decided on GI Joe for fucks sake and then gave me shit when I refused to join in and see the movie when our buddy was leaving the next day. Two days latter every one of them was emailing me telling me how right I was. The 30 seconds of the Captain America commercial were no doubt worth more than that entire pile of banality. Will the movie be awesome? It depends on the acting, it all comes down to the acting but the ad was very good. I'm still concerned about the lack of Nazis and the the typical Hollywood PC horse shit but at least it has a chance to be good.

On the contrary, Marvel has upped the ante when it comes to their animated intellectual properties.If not the Avengers, how about the Marvel Animes that are currently aired in Japan?(each segment story arc consists of marvel characters such as IronMan, Wolverine,Blade and X-Men.)The series is of high quality animation courtesy of studio madhouse and the stories, well not as good as Timm's/mcduffle's JLU stuff, the action and plotlines are more than suitable for a Marvel fan as well as an Otaku. I have seen the 12 eps of Ironman anime and am now watching the Wolverine arc. 2011 will be known as the year of the Marvel fan.from Animes,Movies to the long awaited Marvel vs Capcom 3.Speaking of Capcom, nice user id ya got there Claire.

Or a magical swirling ass. He likes those too. Ever notice how he obsesses over a single aspect of the film and tends to ignore the big picture?
Obviously, they could write a script in which Cap is frozen, just like in the comics, after riding atop a launched nuke and falling into the arctic. They could, but I'm betting they didn't. The cosmic cube is in this film, established fact. The cube has to do something appropriately *cosmic*, and the cube has to figure into the climax of the film. Well, not really, it doesn't *have* to do any of those things at all, but by any standards of scriptcraft, it *should*. Purely as a matter of economy of storytelling, if you've set up this reality-altering device, why introduce a potentially ridiculous-looking ICBM-bronco-busting ride into a glacier when you've already got a tool in play that can accomplish the goal?

could have Cosmic cube and frozen in glacier. <p> It would be very cool if they used the Red Skull's discovery of Bifrost and a Frost Giant coming into our world, as both a tie-in to Thor (explaining why the link between Asguard and Midguard is working again after 1000 years) and a more reasonable explanation as to how Cap could be frozen than sitting on a missile in the Arctic.

Cap, Skull and Bucky. A missile is possible, but my best guess right now is that that giant flying wing is the Skull's plane, and that the climax will take place on it as it's airborne. We'll have to see what the cube does, but I could easily see the destruction of it throwing Cap from the plane and into freezing waters. I could also see Bucky using it as a last gasp effort to save Cap while sacrificing himself. However it goes down, the Skull needs to be defeated, Bucky needs to sacrifice himself (apparently, at least) and Cap needs to get frozen.

I would write him as an independent, but he'd have to be liberal on social issues. Otherwise, he'd be a dbag, and thats better off in the Ultimate comics version. Cap doesnt give a shit if two dudes want to get married.

Fox News had it's highest rated year in history in 2009 when it reached an average total viewership of 2.2 million in primetime (and averaged less than that the rest of the day). There are more than 300,000,000 Americans. Hell, even the best though outdated numbers I can quickly find say that there were 55 million registered Republicans in 2004. During its strongest year (it's down since then), Fox News averaged well under 1% of the population, and well under 5% of all Republicans (especially if you count people who identify themselves as Republican without specifically registering so.) And Fox News is the highest rated of the cable news networks.

To say otherwise is to call him a close-minded, biased a-hole. Besides, he's the ultimate soldier, and most soldiers vote Republican because Republicans support the military. Chew on that. I won't be back so don't bother replying.

In WWII black soldiers were still largely segregated, and a black platoon leader would have never been allowed to lead a bunch of white guys.

Yeah and the Rebublicans were quick to send many American Troops to their deaths for undiscovered WMDs oh, and not to mention how the wounded Soldiers were treated or lack thereof at the Walter Reed medical center.This was of course during Bush's term as President. Poor jaded sons a bitches.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: JUMP THE GUN

i would be reasonably sure that they also planned a sequel for The Last Airbender whilst they were getting that ready for release.

I work at WRAMC and they treat the wounded warriers just fine in spite of the Commander and Chief. All of our Medical Centers are dedicated to helping them recover and get back to life. To suggest otherwise shows your lack of knowledge on the subject. To be fair, we are not perfect but we are soldiers treating soldiers. If you want to be concerned, you should focus on the VA system which they will ultimately go into. Many problems there to be sure most stemming from access to care and funding. As it stands now, a wounded soldier can get in but care is very limited and with the plan to fund Obamacare, it will get much, much worse. Good news is that folks that pay nothing into the system will get funded by those that do and they will rejoice in getting something for nothing. Well, they don't pay for it anyway. My concern is for the folks getting 90K artificial limbs with no plan on how to support replacement down the road. They don't last forever, and when they go I easily see the VA replacing them with more traditional limps (think hooks and peg legs....well almost peg legs). By the way, if you want to see your healthcare future look at Canada. They limit access just like the military and as you get older, you will find fewer and fewer options. If you can get in the care is great but getting in is a problem. Good luck, we are all going to need it. By the way, Captain America will be great. Thor, not so much.
