I imagine at this point, most of America has seen Captain America. Well, not me! My theater, in all its ineptitude, has decided to bring in Zookeeper for an extended stay rather than Captain America. So I'm stuck here, on the internet, silently watching as the masses fall in love with the movie. But even though I haven't seen it yet, I know one thing for sure; Captain America does not represent America. He represents patriotism, but not American ideals themselves. For some reason or another, Captain America's superhero cohorts do a better job at representing the American ideals than the big, blue, boy scout himself. While we're not exactly proud of it, here are the eight superheroes who better represent American ideals than Captain America. These issues are prevalent everywhere...but when describing modern America, you would be hard pressed not to mention these issues.
After just one day of filming (which we announced yesterday), Marvel has already released their first pic from the set. Don't get too excited though as it doesn't show any cast, but it's still kind of fun. More interesting is the press release they've also issued which announces the start of filming, plus confirms a long-rumored villain in the film.
