Still not a fan of ScarJo in these films. Her distinct voice (not just the accent) just sticks out too much. Her action scenes are always underwhelming as well.

I do think the movie will be good though because I think the story could head in some interesting directions. One old-fashioned man bringing down the entire SHIELD organization just feels so unbelievably badass. "It looks like you're giving the orders now Cap". Love that aspect.
These days, that's not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, 24 had its cinematic moments, and the AMC/FX/HBO shows are pretty cinematic in and of themselves. Hell, the pilot of LOST was absolutely gorgeous, and don't get me started on the beauty that was the entirety of Friday Night Lights. The movie version felt more like a single episode of television than the TV show itself ever did.

I mean, the quality of television has skyrocketed over the past few years that, now when I hear someone say "It looks like a TV show", that's not necessarily an insult to me.

"Joss Whedon, Shane Black, Edgar Wright, James Gunn [and Ryan Coogler]… For as much flack as people give Marvel that's a pretty freaking great group of filmmakers. Kind of feel spoiled."
