Ah yeah true
A Soviet-era icon being publicly promoted would definitely be in keeping with the growing Soviet nostalgia in Russia today, where 70% of the population now sees Stalin in a positive light:
Record 70 per cent of Russians say Stalin played a positive role in their country's history
Yeah when I went to Moscow I saw stalin’s Shrine was covered in flowers near lenin’s Mausoleum. Kind of random how historical figures can be repurposed.
I suppose it must be weird going from being a communist hero to selling toys at GUM
I love that David at SDCC said he had "complicated feelings" about Captain America. Will be interesting to see how the idea and legacy of Cap may play into this film and Red Guardian in general as played by Harbour.
I wonder if Red Guardian has captain America trading cards haha
If so they probably have holes in them from him putting them up on dart boards so often.
Calling it now, Red guardian is going to be the scene stealer. Even if he did get fat
I hope we get a couple of flashbacks with Red Guardian in his youth and why he let himself go lol
I can answer that from personal experience. Age.
That and it appears he was in prison of some sorts
I know we'll get a big dose of "old guy with dad bod" jokes in this film, but I was actually impressed with Harbour's upper body. I've only seen him occasionally over his career (mostly glances as my daughter watches Stranger Things) and I don't ever remember him looking like he's been hitting the weights.
I remember during the whole Hellboy thing - there were articles praising him for looking so buff [like 'OMG - can you believe the shape he's in? He looks freaking jacked!' etc] yet it was obviously all prosthetic muscle suit.
"Alexei strong like bull! He not your skeeny Keptain Emerika!"
See, I always find it somewhat bemusing. If you look at actual weightlifters, wrestlers, and other strongmen, they *don't* look like body builders with acres of carved muscle. They generally look kind of pudgy. . . because the kind of training that trims body fat and creates those sculpted muscles? Also reduces power.
Alexei went a little over board on the cherry slushy's from the 7/11
Haha. How old is Red Guardian supposed to be here? Around 50ish? Or more?
I'm thinking he's in the age range of Bats in the TDKR comic - late 40s, early 50s. About 20 years past his pime.
Makes sense, thanks.
So glad to see David gets to be adorable here I was scared he was gonna play an angry, vicious character or something, this looks so wholesome
has it been suggested or hinted at of what era he was active/in his prime?
Never going to happen, but imagine a flashback scene where he's in his prime and in shape. And with a shield.
What makes you think a scene like this won't happen? They used de-aging CGI for William Hurt... might do it for Harbour too.
Honestly, my read is that he is only "past his prime" thanks to inactivity.
I assume like the ‘70s maybe? Might be wrong but that seems perfect
