It maybe seems odd, since I’ve long been a big Green Lantern fan, but the superhero movie that currently has me most excited this year is actually Marvel’s upcoming Captain America.
I think amongst other things, its the fact that they’ve made it a World War 2 film. This helps it stand out amongst all the modern world-set superhero films we’ve had over the last several years. Its also got a good cast with Chris Evans in his second Marvel superhero role and Hugo Weaving who’s always reliable as a villain.
While the Merry Marvel Marketing Machine will doubtless now shift to Thor in a big way (and I assume the reason for this trailer coming out is that it’ll be attached to Thor), Captain America is the film I think could do the better business.
