Don’t get me wrong, I love superhero movies as much as the next girl, and they have really turned around Captain America for me. I never liked Cap much before the movies, he always seemed to be a jingoistic anachronism. Instead, they made him into a gentleman, a warrior, a kind man, and a hero. I admit to being impressed (my only complaint: those were not hydras on the bad guys’ pins but octopi!) But I loved the Avengers I and II and I do like Batman even after what’s-his-face nearly ruined him with those terrible Dark Knight movies.
What I don’t get is why I should care, at all, about the internal squabbling of the team. From what I gather, the Civil War movie is about Bucky and Cap going up against Iron Man. And Batman vs Superman is about Superman going on a rampage.
Let’s see. Superman will get beat up a little by Batman, and most likely come to his senses, probably right in time to save a bunch of virgins, orphans, and nuns.
Bucky, Cap and Iron Man will probably come to some sort of agreement which will allow everyone to live.
I am really disappointed that I am not in the least excited about any of these movies, and I WANT to be. I am more looking forward to the X-Men movie than any of these. It doesn’t help that Ben Affleck is Batman, I don’t like Ben Affleck one bit.
So please! Help me! Tell me fun and interesting stuff! Convince me I will love these movies so I can be excited! And for once, I don’t mind spoilers, provided they are not too massive - like no telling me Bucky gets his head blown off or something. I like Bucky and he is honestly the only reason I keep watching the Captain America movies.
Well. That and Chris Evans’ abs.
