Let us evaluate the Captain America teaser ad.

Only thirty seconds, but that’s OK.  So:

  • 1940’s look? Check.
  • Red Skull? Check.
  • Patriotic motif for Cap? Check.
  • Nazi flying wing aircraft?  Check.
  • General Nazi-punching?  Check.

OK, those are all reasonably good signs… wait a second: is that Adolf Hitler about to get punched in his own experimental one-man submarine?

Because if so… Awwww yeah, baby.  Just keep bringing more helpings of that to the table.

    No Bruno Ganz as Hitler?

    Please. Ganz owns the role. No Ganz=Captain America FAIL!

    S9. You could get all meta if you create Downfall subtitles for that very compaint.

  • Cameron says:

    My main concern is this quote from the director about the movie: “We’re sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers. He’s a guy that wants to serve his country but he’s not a flag-waver. We’re reinterpretating sort of what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was. He wants to serve his country, but he’s not this sort of jingoistic American flag-waver. He’s just a good person.”

    Right now, I am quietly betting that the new and “reinterpretated” Captain America will be run through the Super Soldier program by a shadowy cabal of military industrial complex types who hate puppies.
