CATFA 033: But What About the Pants?

Minute Thirty-Three: From a Glance Between Peggy and Steve to a Snarky Comment About a Sandwich

Joining us on the show today, we’re joined by Matthew Costello, author of ‘Secret Identity Crisis: Comic Books and the Unmasking of Cold War America’.

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

Steve and Peggy share a look, but what’s it about? They head down the steps into the rebirth lab where Dr. Erskine greets them. What do we think of this space? But how much have they actually told Steve as far as what he should expect? Does he ever seem scared? If he is, he hides it and remains stoic. Meanwhile, Colonel Phillips arrives in the observation booth upstairs where he greets Senator Brandt and complains about funding, then meets Fred Clemson from the State Department. Do we buy the Senator being so clueless?

We’re getting ready to party in the rebirth lab. Tune in!
