The whole cheesy patriotic and heroic theme is very far from the new standard that Nolan is setting with his Batman films that have been amazingly successful.
So, question is, do you think there is room in today's world for a film like Cap?
The ''patriotic and heroic'' theme is only cheesy if it's done wrong. It might require a bit more thought and care but when it's done right it can be just as good as something dark and gritty.
That is what forgiveness sounds like, screaming and then silence.
