Hey, yet another good reason to like Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

If this elevator scene demonstrates one thing, it’s this:

That is not, and that will never f*cking be, “Captain Hydra.”

OK, we’re apparently back to this ‘Cap as a Hydra agent’ bullshit.

…Look, just keep this contemptible nonsense out of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, OK?  Which would be the only Marvel comic that I still buy. Don’t make me give up that, too. And since I’m here to give out unsolicited advice anyway: the movies took Captain America, played said character absolutely as advertised, and without visible irony – and now Disney is sitting at the machine pressing the money button, and giggling as hundreds of millions of dollars comes tumbling out with each press.

MAYBE THE PRINT COMIC LINES SHOULD TAKE THE GORAM HINT.

Movie of the Week: Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of those flicks that definitely grew on me, although my major problem with it still stands: you just can’t drive a car through Dizzy City that quickly.  You simply cannot.  There’s almost a law against it.

And so, adieu to Dark Dungeons.

PS: I actually read the hostage ship bit to my youngest today as a bedtime story. This amuses me.

Dang *straight* Chris Evans wouldn’t do that.

I mean, I recognize that comic book companies are going to pull dubious PR stunts sometimes, but the rest of us aren’t obliged to let them [pretend that it’s fine and dandy to do so].

No, Captain America is not going to stay a deep-cover HYDRA agent.

Fine, Marvel can get what it wants: people talking about their latest Captain America plot twist. But let me be blunt; this is the creative equivalent of running twenty thousand volts through a dead frog’s leg in order to get a galvanic jump. It works, but it doesn’t fix the underlying problem and it burns out the frog a little every time you do it. (more…)

So, the second Captain America Civil War trailOH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD.

“Underoos.”

What do I think, @Renner4Real?

I think that it’s gonna suck me in.

But where’s Squirrel Girl?
