Matt C: So there’s some movie coming out in a few weeks. It’s got Captain America in it. You may have heard of him. I hear it’s supposed to be quite good. This, on the other hand, isn’t. I’ve never been a particular fan of movie tie-ins as they never seem like the real deal. There’s the movie Cap and there’s the comic Cap, and there’s such a big difference in each medium that looking at a hand drawn movie Cap, trying to picture him as Chris Evans, doesn’t really work. It never really feels like these are cannon – they always sell them as preludes to the films, as though the events might have some bearing on what happens on the screen, when in reality it’s an often tenuous link that doesn’t give the reader any sort of head start over the rest of the moviegoing audience. You think Evans knows the contents of this tale and amended his performance accordingly? Me neither. No matter the talent involved, these things are ultimately pointless. 4/10
