It seems Red Skull does not have a red skull. Discuss amongst yourselves. I'm getting verklempt.

I would guess that happens later in the movie. And HAIL HYDRA!

I gotta say, I'm liking how this looks so far. As for the plastic bikes, those can be touched up in CGI to look more metallic. They've done it before, and it's cheaper than making real steel bikes. I'd assume they do this, because nothing was plastic in WWII.

Yeah..that was my immediate concern. I know it's a bit comic-booky. But is he just a guy called the Red Skull? That seems..weird.
 
2010-11-02 10:38:52 AM
It looks like Sky Captain America and the World of Tomorrow to me.

The Red Skull will probably get a red skull at the end of the third act, just in time to set up the sequel. Till then, he'll just be a dude.

I would say they captured the feel of the original panel, bottom left
blastr.com

with this still

I bet that Schmidt has a horrific accident that makes him the Red Skull. Sorta like how Baron Zemo got his mask permanently glued to his face. Originally is was a rubber mask given him by Der Fuhrer.

The Red Skull is Johann Schmidt. He is JUST a guy, with a mask given to him by Adolph Hitler.

Well (and I'm not an expert on the character at all), according to the Wiki, the Red Skull didn't always have the red skull and it was actually a mask that he obtained during the process of the war. So I wouldn't get too wrapped up in that picture right now. I'm sure they wouldn't stray that far away from the Red Skull's origins, especially since they seem to have made Captain America's WWII costume almost exactly the same as in the comics.

I'm not a huge Marvel comics fan (I've always been more into DC) but I'm got pretty high hopes for this movie from what I've seen of it.

Movie studios don't care about pride. Or America for that matter. They will name the movie whatever they need to in order for it to make as much money as possible. Reality has a well known financial bias.

Two questions:

In the pic where his leather jacket is torn it looks like he's wearing (if not chainmail, anyway) just a "standard" Captain America top underneath it rather than that modified "Ultimates" inspired outfit we've seen before. What's that all about?

Also, why does Weaving have a Hydra patch on his jacket when he's supposed to be a Nazi?

If the story details that were posted in an old Captain America thread here still hold, he's initially not sent into combat but used as a morale booster through the USO where he's wearing something similar to the classic outfit. He eventually goes to fight anyway and it's after wards he gets the fancy costume.

That all may not be true or may have since changed, but that's the best explanation I can think of.

"I know that what our enemies fear most is the sound of our panzers, as well as our legions of well-trained SS stormtroopers, but hey, why don't we throw in a guy in a red rubber mask, that'll really set them running!"

So they can show the movie in Germany and places that have laws against Nazi imagery. Also it can play into being a villainous organization that outlives WWII for future movies.

Seriously? I'll need to look this up. That sounds completely asinine. Let's kill several test subjects and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars (hey, it was WWII) to make...A BETTER BOB HOPE!

We have the technology.

So, they recut the crappy "G.I. Joe" movie from a couple of years ago, and are calling it "Captain America"?

This looks like a pile of ASS. Unsurprisingly.

HalEmmerich, not that I doubt your reporting, it's more along the lines of desperately wanting it to be more than that, but without much hope.

Then you need to read more of Ol' Wing-heads' story prior to the Civil War... it read more like a spy novel than anything else, with the Captain America character being portrayed as seemingly out of place, and yet somehow still fitting in. Really, "A New Deal" is one of the best comics ever written.

He was originally a USO performer because he wanted to volunteer but couldn't pass the physical. Later he does something unexpectedly heroic 'cuz he's Cap for fark's sake and gets pulled into the Super-Soldier Serum program. Blah blah jingoism go team go later and voila: Los Capitan del Estados Unidos. I'm going to see it several times because it's going to be awesome, especially after the Super Soldier battle preview we got in Incredible Hulk, with the pre-Abomination going toe to toe with Big Green.

Ah, thank you very much. The USO gig is before the program.

Not particularly educated about the Cap storyline.

Still think the movie will be at least visually phenomenal, and Huge Weaving will be awesome, as always.
 
2010-11-02 11:45:50 AM
I believe the movie reasoning is that since the Super Soldier formula died with Dr. Erskine, the Powers That Be decree Rogers too valuable to be used in combat so they make him a PR stunt. Then he goes all Hyaaaah! and Whammo and USA! USA! and they relent because, hey, he's America's biggest badass.

I'd bet dollars to donuts that shot with the soldiers is right after Cap goes off the reservation and kicks all kind of Nazi ass.

Frankly, I think these shots look great, such as they are. I love the laboratory set.

The visuals remind me of the flashbacks to the 1940's in The Watchmen. I like it.

I know little about Captain America, but I was given an Iron Man paperback, and the main villain was Hydra, so they're not completely new to me. (female member of Hydra made it into Tony Stark's bed)

2010-11-02 12:43:40 PM
For those confused about why Red Skull isn't red and skull-ish in this pic, it's because Johann Schmidt actually wears a red skull mask to become the Red Skull. The mask was given to him by Hitler himself, as Hitler wanted to create a symbol of fear for Nazi enemies. Hitler does this in response to the USO's creation of their propaganda tool, Captain America. So I'm assuming this pic is pre-mask.

I have been watching (with my kids) the new animated series "The Avengers" and I noticed in the Capt. America origin story, there were no mention of the Nazis but heavy mention of Hydra. As someone else suggested, this is probably so they can have the organization translate to modern times (which they've done for the cartoon.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the cartoon is providing a story board for the movies. I mean, Iron Man is Robert Downey Jr's version, Nick Fury is the Samuel L. Jackson version, Bruce Banner looks like Mark Ruffalo, etc. If it holds true, then expect a Hugh Jackman cameo in "First Avenger" because Logan (pre Wolverine) makes a cameo in the cartoon.

Unless Sony says so it can't happen. Marvel doesn't own the film rights to X-men or Spiderman, they sold them to Sony before they started making their own movies. At least that's my understanding from several threads here.

From what I understand it's all loosely based on the Ultimates universe, thus the similarities.

Also keep in mind that what looks real on film and in photos are two different things. Something that doesn't look right in a still image won't get noticed when you only see it for 3 seconds on film.
