Yeah, Whedon script doctored TFA. That is true.
Well, when you put it that way then yeah, it could've done a lot better, but I must say part of it was in due to it's release date between Harry Potter and Cowboys and Aliens along with Smurfs. I still say if it had Thor's release date it would've done way better.
It's a shame Thor's done so much better than Cap. Honestly, I thought CA was a far better movie. This is like 2008 all over again.
^ In 2008, Iron Man was clearly the better movie than you might want to say, Leterrier's luck (because he did the godawful Clash of the Titans afterward)? The idea that a superhero can be not brooding, flawed and public at the same time was like in no other CBM in the past. It's fresh and so much talked in the internet media as a contrarian to the Batman type of hero.
Back on topic, they need to make Cap 2 like a Bourne movie. Constant action, more martial arts close up beatdown, and a more heady terrorist (Hydra or AIM) plot. If they keep up $140 m budget for the sequel, this can be another commercial winner. To save budget, ease up on the CGI and guest appearances. That means no flying guy aka Falcon in his usual attire.
We still have a while for a sequel.
2014 was always the year we have thought it would happen.
Writers are saying Cap 2 will be set mostly in modern day.
Still not yet confirmed for 2013 though.
With Marvel already releasing 2 movies in 2013 I think they will leave Cap 2 until 2014 as has been mentioned already. Cant see them releasing 3 movies in an already crowded year.
IIRC, Marvel said they'd release two tentpoles every summer; but that doesn't rule out lesser-known (i.e., non-tentpole) characters in the off-season, on cheaper budgets.
I definitely agree they'll save Cap 2 for 2014 and have Thor 2 and IM3 be the summer tentpoles of 2013; but I wouldn't rule out a "lesser" Marvel film for the 2013 off-season. Or even the 2012 off-season, if the budget is cheap enough. (For instance, I wouldn't be *too* terribly surprised to see the long-rumored Luke Cage and/or Iron Fist movie come out in Holiday 2012, or at least Holiday 2013, because neither of those projects scream "big budget" in the slightest. An urban crime drama and chop-sockey film could be made on the quick and the cheap.)
I hope the film has lots of action in it, like classic james bond style action, also who would be the tacit love interest this time?
If there are going to be anymore railing deaths in any of Captain America movies of the future I insist they give these two parts in the movie.
Who might these two be you might be asking? Well the one on the right is Reb Brown, who played a version of Captain America in the 70's. The woman next to him is Cisse Cameron, his wife, whom he met while making the movie that still is from called Space Mutiny. Her only association with Captain America is being married to Reb Brown, but for MSTies we'd get the delight of seeing those two together acting in a movie again. I'd love it if he was a soldier and she a civilian with his lines being "MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!"
I wonder will Cap be living in the Triskelion, Stark Tower, Avengers Mansion, or his apartment in Flatbush..
You know, I was thinking of this but the natural choice for the next Cap movie would have to be Joss Whedon.
Well let's see how Avengers goes. I imagine they will get someone else like they have with Iron Man 3 and Thor 2.
..Antoine Fuqua.. John Woo.. Reggie Hudlin.. Stephen Norrington..
I thought I read somewhere that JJ wanted to come back for the next one. If so, I'd say he's earned it.
I'm fine with that choice. Not that there wasn't room for improvement and as long as he doesn't go back to TFA costume.
since the TFA costume was way superior to the costume he sadly has to wear in TA, I'm not sure if I can agree with you...
If they don't use Johnston again I think Martin Campbell would be a great choice, as the movie wouldn't be as CGI-effects driven and has space for practical effects.
Would be awesome to have a Captain America chase scene similar to the ones in Casino Royale.
Do you really want Martin Campbell anywhere near a superhero franchise after Green Lantern?
That script was actually well-received before Campbell got his hands on it.
Campbell was all wrong as a choice for GL. But that doesn't mean he's wrong for everything. I bet he could do justice to a more grounded, street-level hero.
But the flaws inherent in GL weren't aspects that would be any different in a street-level film (which Cap really isn't, btw - he's pretty sci-fi).
Sucks to TFA costume. I'm glad Whedon ditched it.
Evans already said the Avengers costume is much easier to move around in and the footage we've seen shows that. Cap can actually MOVE and show his acrobatic ability.
When you think about it, Avengers will actually BE Cap II. From a comic perspective, that's how that happened anyway. So when the next film comes out in 2014, I will see that as Cap III. I fell in love with the WWII Cap after seeing the movie. Not so crazy about the modern costume. The mask is my problem. It just registers too generic. His ears aren't out and I feel like the wing design should have some lift to it so you get that indication when you see him face front.
^I'm another one who prefers the TFA costume to The Avengers one, I wish they could somehow go back to it in Cap 2 but if the new one is easier to move in the will probably keep the modern one.
