    “Captain America” actor Chris Evans isn’t cool with President-elect Donald Trump. The Sudbury-bred movie star has been tweeting his intense displeasure ever since The Donald was elected. Evans first expressed outrage when Trump chose controversial Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his chief strategist, tweeting:

    The relaunch of Marvel’s red, white and blue avenger puts the ideological views of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s critics into the mouth of Nazi villain “Red Skull.” “I have just come from Europe — my homeland, in fact. And do you know what I saw there? It was an invading army. These so-called ‘refugees’ — millions of them — marching across the continent, bringing their fanatical beliefs and their crime with them,” Captain America’s nemesis says. “They attack our women, and bomb our cities. And how do our leaders respond? Do they push them back and enforce the borders, as...

    When fans ran out to grab Marvel Comics’ “Captain America: Steve Rogers #1” on its release Wednesday, they were not expecting this. Captain America discloses in the issue that he is in fact a secret operative of the evil, formerly Nazi organization, Hydra. The dramatic twist happens right on the last page, as Captain America prepares to throw his supposed ally, Jack Flag, off an airplane, presumably to his death, and exclaims, “Hail Hydra!” Even Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most recently in “Captain America: Civil Wars,” was shocked. Writer Nick Spencer assured readers...

    What's going on behind that shield? Understand this about the media’s pursuit of agendas: It’s often not so much how they cover stories, as it is which stories they choose to cover at all. Let a bunch of people on social media start using the hashtag #IndictHillary, and I seriously doubt it gets any attention. A bunch of people on social media wanting something is not a story.

    Captain America: Civil War is the 897th installment — or something like it — in the Marvel comic franchise. This time round, the superheroes take sides, with the marketing asking if you’re #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan but not if you’re #TeamNeither, as would be most useful in my case. I swear this is the last Marvel film I will see as I never get anything out of them and whatever I say only sets the fans against me, which is not what you want at my age.

    After some unintended delays, I finally got to see "Captain America: Civil War" today. It did not disappoint. Marvel continues to roll out highly entertaining, funny, and engaging movies that nevertheless address serious issues, and not in a typical liberal-pap way. "Captain America: Civil War," is no different. To understand the film, though, one really has to have watched the previous Captain America, Iron Man, and Avengers movies. The plots are deeply interwoven and the characters introduced over a period of some seven or eight films. In the previous Captain America film, "The Winter Soldier," Steve Rogers, who has been...

    Vanity Fair has weighed in on the blockbuster movie “Captain America: Civil War” to lament the hero’s “heterosexual virility.” Marvel Studios and Disney’s latest installment wowed audiences in North America to the tune of $181 million last weekend, but Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson left the theater disappointed. Her reason: Chris Evans’ character, super soldier Captain America, got nostalgic for his “skirt-chasing” days with best friend “Bucky” Barnes. Robinson said directors Joe and Anthony Russo should not have said fans may “interpret the relationship [with Bucky] however they want to interpret it” since the character explicitly makes clear his attraction...

    Hollywood, typically regarded by those of us on the political right as a bastion of hedonistic leftists, has lately been flouting that stereotype. Still in theaters, Disney's The Jungle Book boasts subtle but articulate themes affirming human liberty and the value of capitalism. Dropping over the weekend from the related Marvel Studios, Captain America: Civil War likewise takes a firm philosophical stance in favor of choice over control. Its politics prove so prominent that they moved Salon writer Amanda Marcotte to denounce Captain America as "a douchey libertarian."Exploring the politics of the film will require delving into some particulars...

    Captain America has to be the all time favorite super hero, as he fights the bad guys with his famous round shield. We are also, fascinated with bulletproof objects like the Captain America shield. Gun retailers Miculek.com took this thought a step further and actually tested a Captain America shield weighing 12 pounds. Miculek did make a modification on the shield, he used a titanium one, where as in the comic, the shield was made by Vibranium. Stan Lee the comic creator came up with the term because he wasn’t a metallurgist. So Miculek crew took the shield out to...

    Captain America: Civil War confirms our national dumb-down. While the mainstream media pretzel themselves over the presidential primaries, Marvel Studios has steadily accomplished a rejiggering of the American public’s cultural and political consciousness. Civil War completes this devolution in its story of superhero combat where one faction of pop icons, led by Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), faces off against another faction, headed by billionaire genius Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). As momentary adversaries, Captain America and Iron Man almost represent the schism that now divides American voters, politicians, and pundits. I say “almost,” because the film’s comic-book...

    Last week the full titanium model of Captain America’s shield stood up to the test against 8 rounds .45 ACP caliber. This week we get to find out if it can be successfully used as an offensive weapon to go for the kill. The titanium model that Jerry Miculek is using is a 12-pound shield that matches exactly that of Captain America. Take a look at the video as Miculek tries his hand at throwing the shield as a weapon at a ballistics dummy to see what the damage may look like. See the result here.

In the strip, we are given the picture of a “coyote” trying so hard to help illegal aliens begin a better life after smuggling them across the Mexican border.

Good action, blah, blah, blah. Now, on to the controversies. The most pressing of which is the lunacy of Captain America’s shield. The physics make absolutely no sense. In the comics the shield is composed of adamantium, vibranium, and a certain lost/secret ingredient that made replicating the shield impossible. In the first Captain America movie they changed that, saying the shield...

The film, which stars Chris Evans as a scrawny World War Two reject given super powers from an experimental serum, easily exceeded the April take for the racing movie "Fast Five," which collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011. "Noah," starring Russell Crowe as the biblical figure, was second with $17 million in ticket...

    Seen close up on the 3D screen, actor Chris Evans’s ruddy lips, bright complexion, and sparkling eyes look like a Pop Art personification of red, white, and blue patriotism in Marvel Studios’ Captain American: The Winter Soldier. Referred to as “The greatest soldier of all time” by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), his paramilitary boss at S.H.I.E.L.D., Evans’s Steve Rogers, who was scientifically re-engineered into the ever-youthful, muscle-bound World War II veteran of the title, represents a timeless idea of American strength and virtue: “I’m 95, I’m not dead,” he tells flirtatious superhero colleague Natasha (Scarlett Johanssen).

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is first and foremost a rousing sequel, the kind that makes you giddy that the Marvel movie pipeline is working at full capacity. It's also a film we're unlikely to see screened at the Obama White House thanks to its anti-NSA message. The new film offers some political undercurrents not seen in most superhero epics, from fears of government spying to the need for unvarnished transparency. It's all fused to a Marvel-approved template starring actors who know precisely how to bring two-dimensional characters to the big screen.

    LOS ANGELES - Captain America will keep its patriotic full title in most of the world when the superhero adventure hits the big-screen. Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios gave distributors around the world the option of shortening the title of "Captain America: The First Avenger" to simply "The First Avenger," out of concern about anti-American sentiment. But the only countries that took them up on it were Russia, Ukraine and South Korea. In other territories, the movie will go out with the full title, a sign that the brand value of the Marvel Comics hero trumps any potential anti-U.S. feelings...

The fictional super-patriot fought Nazis during World War II, took on those who burned the American flag during the Vietnam era, and raked in hundreds of millions of dollars for Marvel Comics along the way. Now, the appearance that he is taking on the Tea Party Movement in a storyline about investigating white supremacists has forced Marvel to apologize for the comic hero. Issue 602 of the comic features Captain America investigating a right-wing anti-government militia group called "the Watchdogs". Hoping to infiltrate the group,...

    A sign created by a poster at Free Republic, and then recreated in a Captain America comic, has led Marvel to admit a mistake. *updated "It looks like Marvel Comic's Captain America is throwing his mighty shield at the Tea Party Movement. Warner Todd Huston wrote on his Publius forum blog that the super-powered soldier who fought the Nazis in WWII observes with disdain Americans who are seemingly compared to Tea Party Movement protesters of today:"In preparation for the infiltration, Marvel Comics depicts the two super heroes out of costume and observing from a rooftop a street filled with what...

    "Where Mr. Houston is correct is in our accidently identifying in one of the held up signs, the group as being a part of the Tea Party instead of a generic protest group. That’s something that we need to apologize for and own up to, because it’s just one of those stupid mistakes that happened through a series of stupid incidents. " According to to Mr. Quesada, the book was ready to go to printer, but the panel in question had a group of protesters handling signs with no words on them, so the editor asked the letterer to "fudge...

    A "tea bag" reference in a recent Captain America comic book that has angered the Tea Party movement will be removed by Marvel Comics in future editions, the story's writer told FoxNews.com.

    I wish also that it was a joke, but nothing surprises me anymore. wish this were a joke … and it may very well turn out to be … but columnist Warner Todd Huston wrote about this yesterday and I was just sitting there in stunned disbelief. And of course AP at H/A has a pretty good take on this too. In issue number 602 of Captain America, a new story line has begun called “Two Americas.” In it the current Captain (there have been a few of them, apparently) is on the trail of a faux Captain America that...

    Marvel Comic’s Captain America is the mightiest soldier with the super powerful secret soldier formula that makes him a super man. Sadly, this muscle bound hero that took on the whole Nazi army during WWII seems to be afraid of those American people who’ve joined the Tea Party movement. Not only is Cappy quaking in his little red booties, but he’s sure that the Tea Party folks are dangerous racists, too. Isn’t it wonderful that a decades old American comic book hero is now being used to turn readers against our very political system, being used to slander folks that...
