The Captain America Trailer!
In a pretty iffy comic-book-movie year, and on the totally inept heel of Green Lantern, Marvel brings us a nice, crunchy 2-minute Captain America trailer for us to sink our teeth into! Let’s! (No spoilers for plot, in case you’re wary of that. I mean, let’s be fair, the plot is probably “Also, Nazis and Explosions!”, but still, I’m not giving anything away here.) – What this movie is up against: Captain America is a really loaded superhero deeply tied to nationalism and whose popularity waxes and wanes with global perception etc etc, and this movie has a big fight ahead of it in the current political climate.…
