Well, breaking news in the superhero movie department today, and it involves the movie Captain America: The First Avenger. Looks like I won’t be getting my hopes up for this movie.
Captain America : The First Avenger is going to suck. (check out our full coverage) There, I got that out of the way. Here’s why : Director Joe Johnson fucked up ‘The Wolfman‘ beyond all predictions. Johnson has the ability to take a wickedly wonderful plot and beat the shit out of it. (See Jurassic Park III and The Rocketeer for more proof).
Here’s more evidence the new Captain America movie will probably blow ” Johnson was recently quoted as saying he is building the main character (Captain America , duh) around his ideas of what Steve Roges was supposed to be. Huh?
“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.”
Yeah, you read that right. The new Captain America is politically correct and sensitive towards the needs an emotions of America’s enemies as well. Still don’t believe me this movie will suck?
…it’s also the idea that this is not about America so much as it is about the spirit of doing the right thing. It’s an international cast and an international story.”
Yeah, so basically not only does the new Captain America look like a douchebag ( everyone wave at Chris Evans!) but he acts like one now as well. This isn’t Captain America, it’s nothing like him at all. They have taken away his physical and emotional attributes, and turned him into a joke.
