That seems...kind of stupid. Since they probably cost a staggering number of billions of dollars each. It would be a serious pity to spend about 50 billion on the worlds biggest bath toy.

Why? This is futuristic tech. Their quality control is evidently epic. For all we know, it works within accepted tolerances right out of the gate.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

For the sake of plot and in a sci-fi setting, it seems they do, helped largely by the prototype getting such a trail by fire in the Avengers.

But the facility being built and them being launched in full view I think is still part of Fury's little "promise" to make a show of force.

Yeah, I'm just floating alternatives.

I'm really looking forward to this film.

I am too, possibly more so than for IM3 and T:TDW, might well be my favourite of the phase 2 leadup movies.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

This business with the Helicarrier pennant-numbering is one of those instances where you wish viral marketing using "in-universe" documents to explain the backstory were more of a habit with Marvel.

(Really hoping those ships get names on-camera.)

^ I'd like to see some viral marketing on all the upgrades to the new Helicarriers as well, besides the obvious like the new cannon turrets all over the place and the Iron-Man-style repulsors replacing the lift-fans.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier pre-release thread

They could easily have something similar to Trek '09's website with the profiles on characters and essential ships/equipment.

A short couple of minute long 'presentation' narrated animatic of the carriers, quinjets, SHIELD weapons and equipment would be nice.

All in the SHIELD theme, it would work well to bridge the series and movies. You could sneak new pages and hints onto it each time a film comes up, make specifically filmed clips.

I would be up for that stuff too.

Do we know how big of a role Sharon Carter is going to play yet? I'm a huge Emily VanCamp fan thanks to Revenge, and I was really looking to seeing her in this, but so far all we've seen is one quick flash in one trailer. I'm starting to wonder if it is a fairly minor role.

An early screening of the film just got good reviews. I hope so. So far the MCU is entertaining but pretty shallow overall. Hopefully this film will examine in more depth the world the MCU takes place in.

It's been said to be a smaller part aimed at setting up future appearances. We don't have many details about it beyond that.

Looks like Marvel has revealed its mystery movie that had been set for May 6, 2016: It's Captain America 3.

Just to remind everyone, Warner Bros. has also staked out this same weekend for their Batman/Superman crossover movie. It's going to be interesting to see which studio blinks first.

That didn't take long.

Ha! I figured WB would be the ones to move.

Gotta say, I love the confidence Marvel is showing in TWS by announcing its sequel before it even debuts. They must be feeling really good about it.
