Saw Captain America today with my husband and his family. It was quite good. I've liked every Captain movie though so I shouldn't be that surprised. I was worried about the movie having too many characters but the movie used them all well. I actually enjoyed the villain because he fit with the theme of the movie so well. He won't be memorable or anything, I don't even remember his name, but he worked really well in the film unlike other villains which didn't add much to the film.

The standout characters besides Cap, Iron Man, and Bucky were Scarlet Witch and Black Panther. Black Panther especially had one of the most compelling stories in the movie (why is him movie coming out in 2018). All of the rest had their moments to shine, some more serious than others. I'm impressed by how well everyone was put into this movie. Like I'm just really impressed that each of the characters got at least one scene to shine.

I do want to mention Black Widow and say that she's more enjoyable here than she was in Ultron. The Russo Bros know how to write her character better than Whedon and I've been hearing that Black Widow is most likely going to get a movie. Finally, I'm super happy about that. I know there are people who don't want it because how dare a b-list superheroine get a movie when there are A-list superheriones to choose from like Wasp. I get that, I do, but I think we need accept that Black Widow is the A-list superheorine of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So I really hope she gets to have her own film. There are apparently talks of giving her three films but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

Is this my favorite Marvel film? No, Winter Soldier is still my favorite, but I do thin the Captain America's films are the strongest of the trilogy films for individual characters. It certainly was better than Ultron which disappointed me a lot.

Oh and we saw the Doctor Strange trailer. It looks good but I'm bothered by some of the casting choices. I'm burnt out on Cumberbatch but he looks like he'll do well in the role. Tilda Swinton is playing a character that's clearly supposed to be Asian and it's difficult to not get past that. We'll see, I think it will be visually interesting to watch at the very least.
