And speaking of a tiny 90lb Steve Rogers, I thought the way that they made Chris Evans look so ickle was fab. Technology nowadays is so advanced that this sort of amazing transformation is easily possible. I actually kind of liked how long they spent focused on ickle Rogers as well, as freaktarded as he looked! I all meant that when he became Captain America he looks so much bigger...but he wasn't too big. Like not inordinately big...which was good!
So yes, as a prequel to next years Avengers movie, which I am soooooooooooo excited about, like more than you could possibly imagine...it was an excellent start! It set more characters in motion, something that is happening at a lovely pace with Iron Man and Thor already standing out! We got to see more of Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury character putting his Avengers in place. When I was going into the cinema to watch Captain America this Dad was just coming out with his two boys after obviously seeing the film and I overheard him say, "Did you recognise the man with the eye patch at the end who was speaking to him once Captain America was in our time...he's the one getting all the superhero's together for the Avengers film!" Made me giggle at even the Dad's geekiness! :)
Bring on next summer I say, The Avengers is gonna kick some might ass, and yes, major geekgasm to the fact that my beloved Jeremy Renner is in a comic book flick...it has most certainly got this fangirl a bit giddiful and happy with anticipation. And even more so when at the end of the credits of the film you got to see the trailer for The Avengers...AWESOME!!!!! <3
