Marvel Movie Minute Season Five • Captain America: The First Avenger • Minute 61

CATFA 061: We Still Do It 9 to 5. We’re Not Monsters!

In this minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ Steve works his way stealthily across the factory floor, pocketing a blue glowing item along the way. He arrives at the barracks, knocks out the guard, and frees the prisoners. We meet Gabe Jones, and Dum Dum Dugan has a racist comment about Jim Morita.

Minute Sixty-One: From Steve’s Stealth to Dum Dum’s Racism

Joining us, we have Matthew Fox, the voice behind The Ethical Panda and our host from last season!

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

Cap’s sneaking around in the Hydra factory. We talk about his nature, the peripheral vision of Hydra troops, picking up blue glowing things, and more. We love his outfit look here though. There’s chat about Mary Sues and the necessity (or not) of training montages. But why does Steve think he can handle everything by himself? And why does Hydra have so few guards stationed outside the cells? But how nice is that moment when Steve arrives at the cells? It’s a well-constructed shot. And we talk about more Howling Commandos – Gabe Jones and Falsworth, in particular. But have these troops not seen Cap’s comic books?

Lots of sneaking and meeting prisoners. Tune in!
