I'm pretty sure that CATWS is going to be miles ahead of CATFA, though, and will generate a lot more audience. Let's face it, when it comes to fans of Cap, the vast majority of us know him primarily as "The Man Out of Time" living in our era instead of the Golden Age WWII Cap (who was a one-dimensional propaganda throwback).
Well my DAD, who I posted about finally seeing the First Avenger, loved everything BUT the "RAY GUNS" basically if you take out the Tesseract he would have LOVED the film and he's 84 and grew up reading the original books.
Personally I loved First Avenger as much as Thor, but I've been a fan of both for YEARS
