Re: Captain America: The First Avenger-Review, Discuss, Grade, Sequel,

If in the sequel Sharon Carter appears I wonder if Hayley Atwell will get to play her since in the comics she was the niece of Peggy Carter(at first her younger sister but that was retconned to niece) and was said to look like her.

My guess they'll we'll probably want to cast someone new.

Hayley's been suggesting to Joe Johnson that Peg stole some "blue juice" and could appear in the present that way.

(blue juice was her name for the serum)

That woman we saw at the end is supposed to be Sharon Carter, I think.

Wouldn't surprise me if they changed her origin so that she's either Peggy's great-niece or grand-daughter or something.

I thought they were going for a relative by the way she looked. I hope she can concentrate on the job and not flirt in the middle of action.
Also how often do we have to hear the "You're late" gag after someone makes a grand entrance.

Would have to be niece of some kind, since, barring unusual circumstances, Peggy's granddaughter wouldn't also have the surname "Carter".

I assumed the SHIELD agent who was dolled up '40s style (played by Amanda Righetti) was supposed to be Sharon Carter, too. I'd rather see Sharon played by someone other than Atwell; making her look exactly like Peggy would add a bit of a creepiness factor to the whole thing.

Re: Captain America: The First Avenger-Review, Discuss, Grade, Sequel,

On further reflection I've got to say that I really disliked the ending.

Now, I understand that Marvel is more interested in building its movie brand as some kind of mega-franchise than they are in the quality of their individual movies simply as stand-alone films.

If Captain America were really a movie made for the sake of making a good movie, though, and the potential beginning of a Really Damned Good movie series, they'd have left him in his proper milieu at end.

I'd pay to see another World War II Captain America movie on the big screen - more than once, if it were as good as this one. The period aspects of the thing give it some real charm and make it remarkable among the current Super Hero Bloat. Give up Hayley Atwell to satisfy some "grand" franchising scheme? Cap in 2011? Not so much. He's just another big guy with issues, wearing tights.

Well, there are some interesting stories to be told with Cap in the modern day. Like the failed Captain America from the 50s (which can be retconned to the 70s or something now), or the John Walker/Captain America No More! storyline.

Plus the potential of Cap meeting an aged Peggy allowing for some pretty powerful emotional drama.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Captain America's "proper milieu" is not the 1940s. He's been the man out of time for nearly 50 years now; a good 90% of the stories published with him feature him in the present day. The 1940s are his original period of publication under Timely and, in the Marvel version of his character, his (extended) origin story. Seeing him in the modern world dealing with the loss of his old life and finding his place in the new one is where his character really gets interesting.

Yes it is. It's where he belongs conceptually and it's where he works best. It's where his soul is, as this movie demonstrates. The sheer volume of more "modern" material doesn't mitigate that one bit, and the "Buck Rogers" schtick doesn't really impress.
