Re: Captain America 2: News and Speculation - Part 2
Sure, he can struggle with it but the film won't dwell on it, there just isn't time. Besides, time has passed and Cap has dealt with some of these issues off camera. The question you have to answer is "How do we make this into a compelling story that moves the plot forward?" If you can't answer that, don't do it.
Showing Cap being sad for more than a second is boring. Thinking about it, I would start to dislike Cap if he started whining about missing those years. I would just be like, "Cry me a river."
