Guys, we only have 5 more months to wait:
The makers of this new Marvel movie have decided to arm Captain America with a Colt 1911A1 !! Apparently all sorts of evil Nazi scum are going to fall victim to his 1911A1 pistol!!
Is the Colt 1911A1 an appropriate weapon to arm a Super Hero with??
The movie stars Chris Evans, best know for playing the "Human Torch" in the two Fantastic 4 movies.
Here is a photo taken during a break in the filming of the movie, showing a stunt double on Captain America's motorcycle.
Note the 1911A1 on his right hip, and the scabbard holding a Thomspon sub-machine gun on the right side of the motorcycle.
Looks like there may be some gratuitous Tommy Gun action in this flick too!
I can remember watching Captain America on the Animated Marvel TV series back in the 60's when I was a kid.
Does anyone else remember the Captain America Theme Song from the TV show??
We have only had to wait 45 years for a movie to be made.
The 1960's vintage Captain America carried no weapons, other than his shield, which was only used as a non-lethal weapon. I guess that since it was a kid's cartoon show, they had to dummy down Captain America regarding the violence level.
You may recognize the actor that plays the evil Nazi Super Villain: the Red Skull, in the movie:
