Combine that with the man out of time angle and I think you would have a deeper film.
I get what you're saying, I think. I think it should have been more of a WW2 movie with Captain America in it than a Captain America movie in WW2. I don't think you would have had to sacrifice anything too much in terms of Steve Rogers or pre-war type of stuff that they showed.
. Not saying it had to be 'Saving Private Ryan' but I think the fact that it was WW2 should have been more prevalent.
I guess overall it should have been more of a true war movie which I think would have made Captain America EVEN MORE effective than he was
