Here we are again with yet another new Cap trailer! Still this one again leads me to believe this will be the best Marvel movie of them all, but really now are any of the Marvel comics movies really that fantastic? Not really, they really don’t age well and I’ve got a lot of problems with each of them really. I also wonder if this Cap movie will be well received worldwide? How much does the rest of the world really like the USA and a super hero that runs around donning our flag? We’ll see I guess! I firmly believe if Cap were a real guy he’d be up in arms over the state of our country and our sub par, dishonest leaders who run the government. Anyway here it is -and this time we get to hear the Red Skull speak!
Hey folks there’s a pic of Bucky floating around from the upcoming Cap movie and well it looks kinda like a terrible photo! But at least it confirms that Cap’s rad side kick is definitely in the movie! I for one would have loved to have seen the black eye mask- in fact if he doesn’t wear the damn eye mask I’m gonna blow a gasket right there in the theater!! Bucky is not only one of the coolest characters ever but he also becomes the Winter Soldier-who totally kicks ass and then becomes Captain America himself!! So they better not fuck this up!! Now all I need is some confirmation on the Invaders-visual proof-and if Union Jack ain’t part of the team I’m gonna have a serious hemi!!!
Well it looks like we all finally get a good look at the World War II version of Captain America in the highly anticipated movie! Aside from the costume perhaps looking a little advanced for the 40’s I still thinks it’s a pretty awesome design. I have got to say he looks pretty damn good! In fact I am gonna go as far to say that I think this movie is going to be the best Marvel Comics movie of them all.
Just a gut feeling I guess maybe because I think that the 1940’s ass kicking of dirty Nazi’s is just a a great period piece for a movie. Now we need to see the Red Skull and the rumored Invaders who supposedly fight along side Cap! So far so good!!
Finally we get a little closer to really see what the movie Chris Evans version of Captain America is going to look like thanks to Entertainment Weekly. So far so good I say! However we really haven’t gotten a real look at perhaps the most important part of the costume yet-the mask. I have a feeling we’re going to be pleasantly surprised. It seems though from the cover here that we’re most likely seeing his updated version of the costume, as he’s sporting his round shield. From what I gather for most of the movie he’ll be wearing his 1940’s version of the classic costume and using his original shield. There are more pics up online and they all look great-though none yet show his mask…
Ok first off sorry if it suddenly seems as if I have been slackin’ on the blogging lately! I have been working like crazy ever since I got back from my cross country road trip! So anyway I just found out about this today so pardon me if for some reason this is old news to you. It seems that there has been a new villain announced for the new upcoming Captain America movie, Arnim Zola!!!
I will say this is fantastic news as I wasn’t sure if it’d only be the Red Skull cap was up against. So today I find out that little guy Toby Jones (Infamous, Harry Potter) will be portraying the legenday villain! Continue reading
It seems the cast of Captain America is really coming together now. So so much so that just yesterday it was annouced that Gossip Girl’s Sebastian Stan will be playing Cap’s legendary sidekick Bucky. I really wanted to touch on this yesterday but alas I worked all day then headed off to our epic official Bad Movie Night which was a blast! Anyway I guess Stan’s signed on for several movies and personally I think that can only really mean one thing, The Winter Soldier will most likely make an appearance in the upcoming Cap movies. Hey you’ve got to admit that’d make a dynamic movie! Heck Sebastian Stan could eventually become Cap himslef too as Bucky did in the comics.
I really honestly have no opinion on this move to cast him as I have never seen anything that he’s starred in! I know that he was in a supposedly awful movie called The Covenant and that he starred in some movie that Fred “Limp Bizkit” Durst dierected that I can only imagine must suck? I guess it is my responsibility to actually go check him out in some of these movies and decide for myself. Looks wise we seems fine as Bucky.
I also hear that he’s in Hot Tub Time Machine as well which I also have not seen. Geez what a help I am here on this one huh? Either way I’m sure he’s right on par with Chris Evans as Cap. I at the very least am happy we didn’t have to wait out the casting of Bucky too!!
Ok well, we really already kinda knew this but I just had to report for the Dork here that Chris Evans has officially been cast as Captain America. The wait is over thank god. That was getting mighty irritating! It’s kinda funny though how we end up with the guy from two of Marvel’s total shit films. Let’s face it the latest Fantastic Four films sucked big time. The Thing somehow looked better in the wretched 1994 Roger Corman flick that was never officially released. I must say too, I think I enjoyed Cormen’s Crapfest better than the last two Fantastic Four movies. It’s actually good news that it’s getting a reboot.
So I will say though I am releived that these Captain America shenanigans are finally over, you’ve got to admit our American poster boy is quite the anti-climatic choice. Looks like Marvel really decided to save their money on Robert Downey Jr. afterall. There was a time when big names were rumored for the role- there was even talk of Will Smith playing Cap for cryin’ out loud! Well I’m not going to make anymore false judgements on this film until it comes out (ok well I probably will, but whatever-I’ll try not to!). All I have to really say is that even though Evans seems sufficient, after all the hype it’s a little disappointing and I really hope we don’t end up with “Crap-tain America” at the end of the day…
The word on the street is that the role of Captain America has officially been offered to Chris Evans of Fantastic Four fame as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. It seems that Marvel has not offically confirmed it as of yet but it seems more than likey that the former Human Torch will be donning the star spangled tights. This includes apparently a 3 picture deal as Cap, The Avengers Movie and other possible appearances in upcoming Marvel flicks.
I guess honestly they could do much worse than Evans and at first glance I’d say he just might be able to pull it off. It really at this point depends on Joe Johnston though to really nail it. So hopefully this will be a sigh of relief as we can now stop wondering any further who will indeed be the First Avenger!
Word on the street is that there is once again no decision on who is gonna play the role of Cap! Come on Joe Johnston, you were given the dealine of March 1st to pick someone-get your shit together already! Not only is there no frontfrunner for the part but Johnston has also decided to bring in some more candidates for the part. Now pointing to Channing Tatum from the super studpid G.I. Joe movie and also Ryan Phillipe who starred in the equally lame Cruel Intentions. Wow exciting huh? Not so much.
I am personally biting my tongue for anything I said about Leonardo Dicaprio getting the role of Cap a while back! Continue reading
The rumors are flying that the Red Skull has potentially been cast! But these seem a little more so confirmed than just rumors as Hugo Weaving is in serious talks to play the iconic super villain in the upcoming Captain America movie. It seems that several sources tonight have reported that Weaving will don the red skull upon his head. this is what The Hollywood Reporter had to say about it:
“The dealmaking with Weaving is in a delicate stage that will play out in the next day Continue reading
