When it comes to this gig, few things annoy me more than the fact that tacky, trashy, tiring outlets like “Entertainment Tonight” frequently get first glimpses of movies that I’m interested in. They’re the TMZ of television, and they feel the need to sparkle up everything they produce, and voice it over with the smarmiest, most obnoxious voice you could ever imagine. But… they’ve got new Captain America (screw it, I’m not using the full title anymore) footage, and thus for a couple of minutes, you’ll be their bitch.
Guh. I recommend a 3/8” drill bit to clear that voice out of your brain.
That aside, I’m still interested, if not somewhat excited about the film. I doubt we’re going to get another Iron Man or The Dark Knight, but honestly? I’ll be satisfied if it’s just plain fun. The new footage above doesn’t show much — a bit more of the CGI trickery that made Chris Evans go all puny human and shit, a quick glimpse of what I assume are the Howling Commandos (pretty sure I saw a little Dum Dum Dugan in there), and the lovely Hayley Atwell.
Given the critical role that Cap has in The Avengers comic, hopefully this comes out OK, so that he’ll fit well into The Avengers, the movie.
