      Aren't you forgetting about a little film called THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN? (July 3, 2012)


    I think we are all trying to forget.


Don't worry! I'll be here all year to remind you.

I saw Cap again this weekend in 2D, and then I reread Marvels to get back in touch with the Marvel Universe of the 1940s and 1960s. Forget The Avengers - MARVELS, set in the 1960s - THAT'S the impossible movie I'd kill to see. That's my Marvel movie wet dream.

The Cosmic Cube. (There is a LONG story behind that thing, use the Google.)

Awesome movie, awesome establishment of Steve's character in the grenade scene and others, awesome, awesome, awesome.

Howard Stark was pitch perfect, Tommy Lee Jones was so good I think DC should poach him for a Sergeant Rock movie, and Hugo Weaving will never be Megatron but he's a hell of a Red Skull.

    That aside, this isnt the early 20th century studio system; Hugh Jackman isn't exclusive to FOX or whatever. They could have just had him make a little cameo just for a second in the movie, not even say he's Wolverine... I woulda flipped my shit.
The Avengers cartoon got around it by having a cigar holding (Canadian?) soldier call Cap "Bub" in one of the WW2 scenes. I think it would've been awesome, but Jackman knows who butters his bread (hint:FOX) and is unlikely to engage in such antics.


Though if they really wanted the hardcores to piss themselves they could've stolen the scene from the Avengers toon and had Dougray Scott play "Randon Canadian Soldier".

      Sure thing. In the comics, Cap's shield isn't just vibranium, it's a unique alloy of vibranium and steel. During the manufacturing process, the scientist fell asleep and an unknown catalyst got into the mixture. The resulting metal was poured into a tank hatch mold, but when it hardened, they discovered that it was indestructible, so much so that they couldn't scratch it, chip it, or melt it back down. The scientist spent the rest of his life trying to duplicate the process, but the closest he got was adamantium (the stuff that's in Wolverine), which is both heavier and less durable. The main point, though, is that the stuff Cap's shield is made of is completely unique and totally indestructible. Making it out of something Iron Man duplicated last year just kind of bugs me. Like I said, total nit-picking.


    I think they covered it pretty well when Howard Stark says that what the shield made of is all the vibranium on the planet no?


But my overall point was that in Iron Man 2, Tony Stark reinvented vibranium, so Cap's shield isn't unique by the time they thaw him out.


And by the way, the rights divisions for which studios can use which characters is different for animated television than it is for live-action films. That is definitely a Wolverine cameo in that episode of the Avengers, and they've dropped several hints that Avengers and Wolverine and the X-Men take place in the same universe. I believe they even mentioned that some of the X-Men will be showing up in the second season, but I can't seem to find confirmation of that anywhere.

For "some of the X-Men" hopefully we mean Beast so that the original comic book bromance can play out properly.
