- I punched the air when I saw they incorporated the Howling Commandos into the story, though they missed a bit by not including Nick Fury's dad (though already having Stark Sr. that might have been pushing things a bit).
Yeah, I'm not a big fan of saying for all these characters who existed in WWII that suddenly it was their dad, just because the comics are still being written all these years later. Frankly, I prefer the alternate dimension explanation.
The reason I brought that up is of course because the original Howling Commandos had the original Nick Fury as a member, but obviously we can't have Samuel Jackson's version of the character having fought in WWII, so the father angle would be the only way for it to work.

One thing I forgot to mention that did make me sad is the fact the film ends with Cap moving forward in time. I'd have liked to have seen more adventures with him and the Howling Commandos, Tommy Lee Jones' general and, of course, Hayley Atwell. Maybe Dum-Dum and Peggy and the others were so upset at losing Cap they had themselves cryogenically frozen? Naah...
