We continue Marc’s Miserable MARVELous May with 1990’s Captain America – movie that should have been made by New World Pictures but wasn’t.
Instead, it was made by the Cannon Films offshoot, 21st Century Film Corporation. which is why we invited the author of The Cannon Film Guide, Austin Trunick, to join us to discuss this straight-to-video superhero movie. Austin shares some fascinating stories about the making of Captain America while we debate important questions like:
Is Captain America actually a superhero or just a regular guy with super strong frisbee golf skills?
Is Captain America the older sibling of Ralphie and Randy Parker from A Christmas Story?
Can a piano stay tuned when placed on a castle wall overlooking the ocean?
Should you let your kids wander the streets of Washington DC at night so they can practice their amateur photography skills?
