Re: The Official Captain America: The First Avenger Review Thread! - Part 1
I think marvel studios really shines when it works on these characters origins. When it's time to turn into action movies they kinda lose their creative spunk. This usually happens half way through their second acts. And sometimes through their entire movies(TIH/Thor).
Avengers which will most likely not be an origin story, I hope deals with this issue.
The characterization will be golden as always though, especially with Whedon on board.
"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
