Captain America in July 2011
I’m a BIG fan of Captain America… & he was my favourite comic book hero when I was growing up. After an ‘ok’ TV series in the 1980’s & an ‘ok’ movie in 1990, it was rather sad to hear no news of America’s greatest comic book hero. On the other hand, I think it’s a good thing that MARVEL STUDIOs has been set up so that there is better QC & justice is shown in the storyline… & the bonus is actually in getting to watch the exciting build-up of Marvel movies till… THE AVENGERS!
Anyway, here are little tidbits of fan-easter-eggs I enjoyed, just to share with you all 😀
1) In Iron Man (the first movie), there was a sighting of what looked to be a Captain America shield, which is partially correct, only it should be deemed as Project Super Soldier: Armament.
2) In Iron Man 2, it appears again in Stark’s workshop. Agent Coulson’s expression of “Do you know what this is?” – which probably is reference to the fact that it’s a piece of history from the glorious era of WWII.
* So the best part I’d like to add to these 2 things we already know is, when I looked back at and through my comics, I found this!
*So yes, TONY STARK actually makes Captain America a shield 😀
3) Captain America can barely be seen in a deleted scene from the movie, The Incredible Hulk.
*MILD SPOILER THEORIES* for Captain America: First Avenger movie
These are my guesses for the movie:
- I believe Howard Stark will be in this movie (after re-watching Iron Man 2)
- Howard Stark creates S.H.I.E.L.D in this movie.
- I think they will show Howard Stark create some really dangerous but inactive stuff & he’ll store it away.
- I think a young Nick Fury will make an appearance.
- I think ODIN will make an appearance.
- The Stark Expo will be featured in this film (after re-watching Iron Man 2)
- The item shown at the ‘hidden’ end-scene of the movie, THOR will be revealed.
- Captain America will be frozen at the end of this movie.
- Key words by Col. Fury – “Unlimited Power”. Project PEGASUS = Potential Energy Group/Alternate Sources/United States. This could be connected to Tony Stark with him creating a ‘New Element’, which could be unlimited energy. Howard knew about it but just couldn’t create it back then in the WWII era.
- This movie ends with a glimpse of who the baddie or baddies are in The Avengers!!
