Minute Sixty: From Outside the Hydra Compound to Inside the Hydra Compound

Joining us, we have Michael Gravagno, host of the podcasts The Superhero Show Show and Movie of the Year.

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

Steve knocks out a mouthy guard with his shield and we have some conversation about shield dynamics. Is it superpowered too? And why do none of the guards walking around the Hydra compound see him? Is that a superpower too? Or perhaps their masks actually don’t allow peripheral vision? Regardless, it gives us plenty of fodder for our conversation. We also talk about tanks, the compound itself, and how Steve manages to get inside.

It’s a sneaky minute. Tune in!
