    My guess is that Redford is the bad guy, and that he's
    playing the role of Alexander Lukin in the comics, perhaps even being the Red Skull in disguise, as a version of that story. It would also be similar to the "Dell Rusk" story from about a decade ago.

    I was hoping for Falcon's outfit to look a bit sleeker but didn't get a great look at it. Overall the movie looks great!

    I think it would probably be a little too obvious to make Redford the villain. I hope they don't go down that route, because people would be able to see it coming a mile away.

    In any case, very cool trailer. And Cap's alternate suit is even growing on me too.

    I actually like that the falcon's suit can look a little more 'realistic'.

    Great trailer, can't wait to see both the upcoming films.

    Wasn't expecting such a focus on the SHIELD organisation, or them taking on a much more Section 31 esque MO.

    But, 3 helicarriers at least? and enough to consider one of the disposable for the film? just how much funding could SHIELD possibly have to build a complex that big and 4 supercarriers with fusion powered, superconductor operated flight engines. One was alright when it was their base of operations, but these guys aren't the aliens and superheroes.

    Either way, I like the thriller aspect they're going for, should be interesting to see how they work the Cap's older ideals against the modern terror themes.

    SHIELD always has a fleet of those in the comics.

    looks really good. i was hopeful they would play with the man out of time aspect and bring up the differences in ideology Cap would most likely have with SHIELD. or at least, the differences he would have not long after being woke up.

    That looked like lot of fun. Nice to see Redford (who I think is underrated actor). And LOL'd at heli-carrier crashing into
    water :lol:

    As I said before, it's easy to imagine that if this film had been made 40 years ago (as a big budget epic, as oppose to the old cheapo ones), Redford may have been playing the lead role.

    The fleet approach is something that's become the norm only in the last 15-20 years. Used to be that when a SHIELD Helicarrier showed up on the scene, it seemed as if we were editorially expected to believe that they only had one of those in service at any given time. Joe Casey and Jose Ladronn were responsible for breaking that illusion in their run on Cable.

    Robert Redford has two Oscar wins (including a lifetime achievement award), two more nominations, and has about 27 other award wins. He was the Sundance Kid, for crying out loud. There are a lot of underrated actors out there, but Robert effin' Redford is not one of them.

    ^ The other Oscar is for directing, not acting. Most of his awards are as director or producer, not for acting. Redford is a screen legend but there are many who have dismissed him as a pretty boy. It's not entirely inaccurate to say that he's an under-rated actor.

    I've heard the Thor post-credits scene will be a set up for "Guardians of the Galaxy" directed by James Gunn.

    Great trailer. My only complaint is the lack of Emily VanCamp.

    That's kinda what I was hinting at. Also heard people say find him a bit stiff or wooden.

    I imagine that part of the reason for casting Redford, as well as the fact that he looks like an old Steve Rogers, is a nod to the likes of All the President's Men and 3 Days of the Condor, those seventies political thrillers that helped cement his stardom.

    Depends if they had names in the comics.
