CATFA 020: Throes of Norse Passion in the Air

Minute Twenty: From Dancing Blue Energy to Agent Carter

Joining us for the last time this season, we have Will Johnson and Don Shanahan from the Cinephile Hissy Fit Podcast.

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

What’s with the screaming blue Tesseract energy? Are those sounds the throes of Norse passion from centuries ago?

We talk about Hugo Weaving and what he brings to the role. There’s also greatness in Zola as he gets quite excited about the success of their experiment. Believe it or not, we also compare Zola and Erskine to characters in Akira Kurosawa’s Stray Dog.

And then we’re in Camp Lehigh. Great shot setting up Steve and the rest of the recruits, plus we get to very briefly meet Agent Carter!

Energy’s in the air and Queen Victoria’s getting the new recruits ready. Tune in!
