I didn’t know anything about Captain America until I watched The Avengers. Captain America might as well have been a brand new superhero for me and when I first saw him I truly didn’t like him that much but my despise for the character didn’t last long. I soon grew to like Captain America more and more and now he’s truly become one of my favorite superheroes. So, today I’m super excited to share with you his amazing evolution throughout the years. Enjoy!
Captain America: The First Avenger
The First Avenger could’ve been a GREAT movie but it, unfortunately, fell a little flat about halfway through the film. But watching him go from a scrawny Army recruit who wanted nothing more than to serve his country to becoming a superhero who ended up saving the world was pretty fascinating. Steve Rogers is just a good, righteous guy, he doesn’t have a bad bone in his body, and that’s part of the reason why he’s so great. I love Captain America and I definitely had fun seeing the first leg of his journey.
The Avengers (2012)
The first time I ever saw Captain America on the big screen was in The Avengers and that was not a great introduction to his character. First of all, the suit is TERRIBLE. It’s way too tight, the stripes on his stomach make him look like he’s got a gut even though he doesn’t, the face mask is just horrendous, and overall he just looked very bad. The writers also didn’t know how to fully incorporate his perfect soldier attitude without making him seem too stern or out of place with the other Avengers and that also wasn’t a great thing for his character’s chances of being cool.
The Avengers didn’t really develop his character in the slightest. It only added him to the superhero team. Thankfully his next movie would completely change my view on the patriotic hero.
