Everybody knows that the Fantastic four they’ve already appeared in four live-action movies with three different lineups, including an adaptation that was never intended to be released, as well as one of the worst comic book blockbusters ever made. However, it seems that many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are not aware of Captain AmericaThe past of feature films.
With the very obvious exception of Tim Burton bat Manlate 1980s to mid 1990s was not the best time for superhero movies, and the 1990s Captain America I sure as hell was no exception to the rule. Made for a measly $3 million but somehow conspiring to look at least twice as cheap, Matt Salinger plays the star-studded title hero, who freezes up during World War II before waking up to prevent his archenemy the Red Skull kidnap the president
Make no mistake about it; this movie sucks, but it does it in a way “so horrible it might actually be entertaining.” However, director Albert Pyun’s cheap money definitely has fans, as a Reddit thread originally meant to mock the terrible effects was instantly scrapped in favor of a comments section that found nostalgic followers bleary-eyed.
Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving aren’t, but it’s arguably worth seeking out if you have a soft spot for anything Marvel. It’s mind blowing to think that shit like Captain America was in production less than a decade before Bryan Singer and Sam Raimi signed on to tackle X Men Y Spiderman respectively, and look where we are now.
