live-action modern day “the lion king”
NEW YORK, 1960s. The civil rights movement reaches its crest. Mufasa, a prominent activist leader in the city, clashes against his younger brother Scar, himself a prominent leader of the mafia underground. Politics against politics, brother against brother; Mufasa dies, Scar reigns. A new law governs New York in the 70s: blood and bribery.

Idris Elba as Mufasa, Michael K. Williams as Scar, Naomie Harris as Sarabi, Jaden Smith as Young Simba, Amandla Stenberg as Young Nala (not giffed), Taraji P. Henson as Timon, Mo’Nique as Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Older Simba, Kerry Washington as Older Nala, John Boyega as Kovu, Zoe Kravitz as Kiara.

as irritating as I find the “prudish old timey idiot” fanon interpretation of Steve Rogers, nothing will beat my disdain for unnecessarily angry/violent Steve Rogers. For racist/xenophobic/reminiscent-of-a-staunch-Republican-even-though-that-makes-zero-sense Steve Rogers

because that isn’t even a strict fanon thing. That’s just the Ultimates version of Steve. The “do you think this A on my head stands for France” version of Steve that 30 year old nerds who like “gritty” comics think is super cool.

and I LOVED Cap 2 for placing Steve firmly in opposition to that idea, that we didn’t have some bullshit violent cynical superhero movie like The Dark Knight made popular. Steve Rogers isn’t even a favorite of mine in the comics, but MCU Steve being earnest and heartfelt (and sarcastic and always on the ball and very aware that beaurocratic bullshit doesn’t ever change much) is so absolutely right to me.

less superhero movies about shitty obsessive grimdark crybabies and more superhero movies about good people pls

Marvel actually did an interesting take on this back in the early 70s.

To provide a bit of historical background, after the Second World War, Captain America quickly evolved into a jingoistic Commie-smasher - a hard man making hard decisions - basically embodying the worst excesses of early Cold War propaganda. This iteration of the character was never widely popular, and the title was cancelled in 1954.

Ten years later, in 1964, Marvel attempted a comeback - but by then they’d come to regard the early 50s version of Captain America as an embarrassment, and wanted to distance themselves from it. This is where the famous iceberg origin story was established: having been frozen at the closing stages of the War, Captain America couldn’t possibly have been active in the early 50s, thus implicitly disavowing that entire era of Captain America comics.

Rather than hitting the cosmic reset button, however, Marvel never explicitly removed the 1950s version of Captain America from continuity. In fact, the character was re-introduced in 1972, now revealed to be an impostor created by the American government for propaganda purposes after the real Captain America’s disappearance. It was this impostor - a man mentally deranged by flawed efforts to replicate the Super Soldier formula - who retroactively became responsible for the events of the post-War Captain America comics.

As superheroes are wont to do, the two eventually met and fought, and… well, see for yourself:

Can you tell which is which?

  • Take care of Chris Evans he’s special to me
  • Bucky okay like let him cry on screen that’d be nice please
