    Cap in the comics is no stronger than either Batman or Daredevil, at least not by any significant gap. Not really indicative of anything.

    I think you're onto something. Bartoc gets his strength from sport-candy like Cap gets his from SSS.

    Make up your mind. Are you arguing movie Cap is peak human, or are you arguing that comic Cap is superhuman?

    DC's definition of peak human is different than Marvel's and batman isn't really peek human anyways. his strength and agility feats come nowhere near cap's

    neither do daredevil's. they are both extremely skilled humans but neither are really peak human potential in comic portrayal.

    That will come as a great surprise to Bruce "kick through a tree trunk" Wayne, and Matt "flip over a car with enormous effort" Murdoch.

    Cap would flip the car without enormous effort. And I once broke a tree when I hit it while snowboarding, lol... It was an old tree but still...am I peak human now?

    So you basically claim that Cap can flip a car without great effort. . . and yet he's also not superhuman. Right. You do realize outright class 1 explicitly superhuman types have more trouble flipping cars than you are claiming for Cap?

    this is a super nerdy arguement fellas
    lets just call it and say Cap's stronger than Daredevil, and faster with more endurance than Batman

    I have a friend who flips 1000 lb tires for fun and he's not even near an Olympic level or strongman level let alone "peak human" flipping something over is easier than outright lifting it

    I don't have any scientific facts to back that up, but he's correct. I also don't know the argument but I'd think Cap could easily flip a sedan lol.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again... strongest x fastest would look super human. Imagine Usain Bolt with the strength of a Strong Man Champion... it'd be ridiculous.

    I assume his costume will look different to the costume in the comics. :D

    I hope not - not too different anyway...the same degree of difference as Cap's costume in the first one would be okay...

    It's been months and it's not like the character needs a lot of CGI to work. Marvel's just trying to play coy as much as possible and it's annoying.

    Kinda wanted to see Batroc in the trailer, but I guess we can wait for another trailer. Trailer looks good though.

    Considering he's likely just going to be a henchman or, at best, low-level villain, I don't think he was really necessary in the first teaser trailer.

    I'm not big on athletes acting (while... majority of them anyway). I've seen GSP act before and it was horrific. I hope he doesn't get significant screen time.

    Well Sebastien Foucan "acted" in Casino Royale for the Parkour chase and that turned out fine. I hope GSP does a similar kind of "acting".
