CATFA 001: Threading the Needle

Minute One: From Logos to a Silhouette in the Snow

In the first minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger

It’s still Paramount! It’s still Marvel’s flipbook logo. But there’s a lot of wind and some of Alan Silvestri’s music.
Pete and Andy are hosting this season, and kick things off with a bit of their history of this film and the Captain America character in general. We talk about the snowy mystery we have as a setup for this film, and what we knew about Cap’s origins getting frozen.
We talk about threading the needle and truck headlights, as well as HMUVs. Plus how red light is more visible from longer distances and weird vehicle POVs.
It’s about time we get things kicked off for this season. Tune in!
