Marvel Romps Onward On the Big Screen

I've recently watched Thor and the latest X-Men movie, and will probably blog something about them in the future--especially the X-Men. For now, I wanted to share the Captain America trailer with you, in case you haven't yet seen it.


Having groaned through every previous screen adaptation of this character, it looks like Hollywood may have finally gotten it right. Judging by these trailers, anyway. It won't surprise me if the film makers subject me to the obligatory amazon superninjas, and make some snide political statement equating the Nazis to the Tea Party or the Red Skull to Ron Paul. But so far as I can tell from the previews, it looks like they took the time to study Captain America's history, and maybe even respect the character. Not only that, it looks chock-full of pulpy superhero action. The Green Hornet trailer convinced me not to bother paying a small fortune to watch that one on the big screen. With The First Avenger, I'm chomping at the bit.

  1. These super hero movies can really go either way. What did you think about X-Men? My sister really hated it. I'll probably check out Thor on DVD though.

  2. Well, I never was a big fan of either Thor or the X-Men in the comics. On the Marvel side, I liked Spiderman, Daredevil, Iron Man, Captain America and the Thing. Anyway, I'm not sure if I've seen all the X-Men movies, but this latest one is my favorite of them.
