Now if they'd hired Christian Bale, they wouldn't have needed CGI: http://bit.ly/eP9qxL
I suppose in addition to the three different Hulks, having Batman be an Avenger would just make everything too confusing.

You know, I appreciate you have to bring up the origin story but unless the film is ABOUT the origin story (a-la Batman Begins) then jesus christ just get to Cap decapitating enemies with his shield and fucking shit up old school against Red Skull. Comic book movies nowadays spend too much fucking time on the origins.
Well, this is also because (AVOIDING SPOILERS AS MUCH AS I CAN) There's basically only one ending possible to this movie, with likely only slight varients from how WW2 ends for Cap
I'd like to see a superhero movie that starts where the hero has been doing the job for like five years, and his origin is explained in a three-sentence bit of throwaway dialog at the start of the movie. This would be ideal because almost all superhero origins are ridiculous.
Reporter: So, The Flash, how did you get your powers?
Flash: I was struck by lightning, which made me super-fast.
Reporter: Wait, that doesn't make any-
(suddenly Rhode Island explodes in the background)
Flash: No, time to talk, citizen! Looks like the evil Captain Island-Exploder is up to his old tricks!
Captain Island-Exploder: HA HA HA HA HA! Tremble before my oddly specific power!
"Comic book movies nowadays spend too much fucking time on the origins."
Comic book movies NOWADAYS??? Please, tell me a comic book movie franchise (or just one that just made a single movie) that didn't spend the first film mired in its pitiful origin story.
I swear to God, if I have to see Bruce's stupid parents get murdered ONE MORE TIME...
Rape Van Winkle
That's not really fair, CJH. Some of them are fat.
Comic books are, in general, complete shit.
Looks like someone else sees the similarities to "The Adventures of Captain America":
The only superhero movie I remember enjoying the origin story was Spider Man.
The worst I saw was Thomas Jane's The Punisher. Over half an hour into the movie and Frank Castle's family is still alive! Luckily Punisher Warzone read my mind and handled his origin in a 5 second flashback.

Where'd the bullets go?
It would have been great if when she is shooting the shield, the bullets are deflected back into her face.
Cap's shield is made of vibranium, so it absorbed the kinetic energy of the bullets and they (presumably) just dropped to the ground in front of him.
So what does it heat up when it gets shot or something?

I'd really like to see this more heavily influenced by Cap as he was presented in the first 13 issues of The Ultimates. That was a really great treatment/modernization of the character.

Hugo Weaving as Red Skull? I'll five that.

This has an Indiana Jones feel to it.

Ahh, the idealized pre-WW2 setting is nice and all, because generally characters can kill Nazis with no one complaining. But, they'll probably have a few scenes with him getting picked on in front of a soda jerk while drinking phosphates while random pretty girl named "Betty" says she won't go out with him. Then he'll go play some Andrews Sisters from the Jukebox and yet somehow not smoke a cigarette, because heaven forbid our children see tobacco usage.
