Cap has used guns in earlier stories and during WW2 - in 616 continuity - it was only shortly after he was thawed out that he kind of adopted a 'no guns' thing. Feeling that he could do whatever he needed to do with just his fists and his shield and his wits.
I was reading some GA Cap Stories (Starting with Captain America Comics #1)recently and the only time I recall Cap picking up a gun was to have Bucky guard some spies they captured. Neither he nor Bucky fired any weapons in those stories. They were pretty gun happy on the covers though.

Neal McDonough's been confirmed. apparently the Howling Commandos may be renamed as The Invaders.

*cue fan wailing and teeth gnashing*

currently, they're still The Howling Commandos.

Re: CAPTAIN AMERICA-shooting July 2010:Casting, Rumors, Pics till rele

I like both Neal McDonough and Stanley Tucci's casting. I just was thinking of something and perhaps this is thread for it more than the "Thor" thread but what type of Avengers HQ are we going to see and will we see it at the end of Captain America? Will it be the Ultiamtes Triskelion, Stark Tower, or will it be Tony's compound or will they have no base but assemble on a SHIELD Hellicarrier? I think I'd personally like to see Stark Tower....since Iron Man has established there doesn't seem to be a mansion in the comic's tradition. At least one we haven't seen yet. What does everyone else think?

Well just because they didn't show Stark Tower or any kind of Stark Mansion other than the one out in LA doesn't mean he doesn't own other places. Although it does seem like Howard sort of focused more on the West Coast instead of the East Coast as the comics originally established.

Of course in the comics, Stane wasn't Howard's buddy. So a lot of things changed.

I'd kind of like to see them in the more traditional looking "Stark/Avenger's Mansion" instead of Stark Tower.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Howling Commandos were folded into the Invaders, since this film seems to be pretty name-heavy already. Making the Howling Commandos the Invaders, and then making Cap, Union Jack, Spitfire, etc. into something else--now that would be odd.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

As I pointed out it's very possible we haven't seen the Stark family home...perhaps we will during the World War II sequences in Captain America. Now that I think about Tony's home in the Iron Man films does somewhat resemble the Stark Tower penthouse suites and his lab from "New Avengers" and the "Iron Man" book.

Triskelion. with a dozen flying aircraft carriers and a fuck-load of fighters flitting around it like in The Ultimates...

The exterior of the Triskelion would have to be CGI...it's HUGE.

Quite right. That kind of faith in the source material worked so well in Spider-man.
And I don't care what anyone says, the costume in the 1990 movie was brilliant.

Since I've rarely ventured into this thread forgive me if it has been brought up but is Sharon Carter in this movie do we know and if so has she been cast? I'd imagine that she would possibly appear at the end of the movie or maybe in the sequel.

It's a WWII story so its likely she will be saved for a sequel. I hope Cap doesn't get completely absorbed into the Avengers as I've never been an Avengers fan and his character has more than enough legs to carry a couple of movies solo with a supporting cast like in Iron Man. Since Cap tends to be a 'low powered' comic it might even have lower production costs once it comes into the modern era. Fingers crossed that we see Cap, Falcon, Sharon (maybe even sidekicks like Nomad, Demolotion Man, and Diamondback) in future Cap movies.

The movie is set in WWII, so it's going to have Peggy Carter (Sharon's Sister/Aunt/Relative) as the main love interest.

Sharon will probably be reinvented as her great-niece or something for the modern films if they want to keep her in her late 20s-early 30s.

Yes. They'd have been better off using the Infinity Formula to keep her young i.e. middle-aged. A middle-aged retired spy can be fun (see the BBC TV series of Spooks). Peggy has drifted off into senility now as the war has really dated her.

Originally, Sharon was just Peggy's younger sister (it was about 20 years since WWII when she first appeared) and it's not totally unlikely that there could be that big an age gap between siblings.

20 years later they changed it so that she was her niece.

Now, they're going to eventually make her Peggy's GREAT-Niece.

Maybe it's for the best they just say that Sharon is related to Peggy but not say how anymore.

Physically, I think Alice Eve is the best choice for Sharon if they ever use her.
