I feel in order for a summer blockbuster to really take off and break records like The Avengers did, it has to have certain elements that make fans want to go to the theatre more than just once.
Seven years ago (has it been that long?), I remember sitting in the theatre to see a movie about a ‘B’ level superhero in the Marvel canon. Or so I thought.
There’s much more intent in the heart of Rogers than in many other superheroes I admire. Rogers is the puny, underdeveloped kid who wants so badly to defend his country but can’t. He’s not accidentally struck with a gamma ray, spider bite, or blinding chemicals. He chooses to serve.
