They did the Empire State Building in ID4, didn't they? Or did I imagine that?
Yes they did since the motheship was right over the Empire State Building, but since it was 1996 the twin towers were there as well.
Oh, I knew the TT were still there when the movie was made. But pre-9/11, they weren't as iconic, which is probably why the ESB got it in that movie. Indeed, one of the criticisms of the 1976 King Kong was that he climbed the, rather than the ESB.
That's horsepoop, IMO. The Twin Towers have been considered iconic since the day they were completed. Every fricking movie made in NYC before 9/11 featured the obligatory shot of them. And as for the '76 King Kong, the one thing that the film actually got right was having him climb the Twin Towers, because they were the tallest buildings in the city, in their day.....just as the ESB was the tallest building of its day.

Read my post again. I said not 'as iconic', meaning as iconic as they are now. I didn't say they weren't iconic but let's face it, being at the centre of the greatest terrorist outrage in US history elevated them to a level of fame and attention they previously hadn't had.

And in relation to King Kong, I'm merely repeating a criticism I've heard levelled at the movie.

Ed Brubaker liked it (he works for Marvel right now, of course, but still).

This is apparently my superhero week, Monday I watched Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, yesterday I did Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, today I bought and watched Green Lantern: Emerald Knights and then I plan on seeing Captain America's first showing Friday morning.

One question is the Black Solider on the poster supposed to be Nick Fury's Dad like from the animated series?

no, that's Gabe Jones, one of the Howling Commandos. the others are Bucky Barnes, Dum-Dum Dugan (bowler hat), Montgomery Falsworth (beneath Gabe), Jim Morita (asian dude) and Jacques Dernier (flat cap, next to Jim)

Jim Morita and Jacques Dernier. Man, someone was digging deep into Howler history.

I think they pulled it off very well in the 1990 movie. I know, I know... ears. Looks good anyway.

So you see, they're using the classic look but updating it.
