Hitler is the puppet master that pulled all the strings in the Nazi party then. He was a very public figure (unlike Bin Laden who has been in hiding for 7 years) He is not a shadowy figure that nobody has ever scene or a hidden menace...he was the leader of the German military at the time. Would you not have the American President in the movie (at some point) or Eisenhower.

I don't think that Bin Laden is a fair comparison to Hitler because he is not the leader of a nation, he is a terrorist.

Well not really. More accurately it'd be like having Bin Laden in a movie decades from now. Either way, neither case would have them portrayed as heroes. The best case for having Hitler physically present (that is not just show a film clip of him or a film clip with the Red Skull inserted) is that it shows how big of a threat Captain America was to the Nazis or how big of a deal having their own super soldier program was to them.

i don't want Hitler to be a caricature of himself... I want him to be pure evil. And ideally, not in the film more than 2 or 3 short scenes (like the Darth Sideous) in the prequels

I'm a little confused; you don't want Hitler to be a caricature yet you want him to be pure evil? To quote Veidt, he's not a Republic supervillian.

If he's in this movie at all I'd imagine it'd be a scene with him sitting with his generals discussing "Captain Amerika" or overseeing the "birth" of the Red Skull

I believe that Hitler was pure evil, or atleast perceived that way by most of the free world during the late 30s and early 40s. OF course he didn't think he was. Anyone who has so much hatred that he would try to eliminate an entire population of people from the world seems pretty damn evil to me.

What I don't want is for him to be made fun of or be in the movie for a laugh (tongue in cheek) like in Last Crusade. I want him to be scary and unsettling (kind of like Hannibal Lecter) I want to see and feel the evil within him, even if he doesn't see it himself. I want him to be very smooth and manipulative, with a hint of violent rage.

He was the face of evil to the free world in the late 30s to mid 40s. How can he not be in this movie (at the very least in archived footage) His presence is the very reason Captain America was needed. Cap represented all that was good (Brave, strong, humble and righteous) and Hitler represented the darkness in mankind (spite, hatred, greed, aggression)

Ah, I was afraid you meant pure evil like Dracula. Although from what I've read Hitler was never acted like how you described around anyone at all but I can see why you wouldn't want a banal interpretation of him I always just err on the side of historical accuracy even if there happens to be a guy in blue jammies running around beating up Nazis.

I like historical accuracy...but can you weave Captain America in there and not mess with the historical accuracy of the timeline? If you could...even better. But Hitler was there and should be in charge and shown as a major power for the axis.

No I meant historical accuracy in terms of personality; like I said my knowledge of Hitler's personality runs counter to how you described him.

I think he should make a quick appearance, but should not be an intricate part of the story.

If it's historical accuracy you're after, the Red Skull should shoot the buttons off the shirt of a fellow Nazi in front of Hitler.

i would like hitler and kaiser to be present at the birth of the red skull, that's enough of a cameo for him.

If they're going with that..................but if they don't;

I personally would just have Hitler and a select few of top brass at the 'birth' of the red skull.

If Hitler can be in Indiana Johns he can be in the Cap's movie
but he should have nothing more than a cameo

^^Yeah, this is exactly the way I was thinking. A brief cameo like in Indiana Jones maybe during the creation of the Red Skull.

Yes he should be put only in snipbits. The Red Skull should be the main focus on the villain side.

No he shouldnt appear, just mentioned a lot and perhaps like some posters have said just show like a picture of him in the background or a view from behind.

They should have the roles of any historical characters (Hitler, Churchill, Roosevelt) be minimal and played by impersonators like they are doing in Watchmen. But they should be included.
