It’s been a so-so Summer for comic book flicks, and it’s not for lack of volume. Even if you enjoyed Green Lantern, or X-Men: First Class, I doubt you left the theater proclaiming that either will be making your “bestest movies ever list.” Thor was pretty good, but it’s not exactly an instant classic.
Enter Captain America: The First Avenger.
It’s focused on one hero, the backstory is simple, and what makes the character interesting is his personality, not his powers. Plus, Joss Whedon did some script doctoring. I’m hoping that all of that adds up to a strong film.
Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22.
