Post-Explosion Crazy Hair
Minute Seventy-Seven: From Post-Explosion Reaction to Pre-Kiss Reaction
Joining us today, we have Jason Dittmer, Professor of Political Geography at University College London and author of ‘Captain America and the Nationalist Superhero’.
In the seventy-seventh minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger…
Ah, mad scientists and the mussed hair paired with the ashy face trope. We talk about Stark’s test with the Tesseract energy and what happens to him and his assistant.
But really, this minute largely deals with Steve as he figures out how to handle Private Lorraine. Natalie Dormer makes her mark on the MCU with this moment of heavy flirtation with Steve, and he just seems struck dumb. Is this puny Steve’s mental return? Is this how he acted with any beautiful woman when on the USO tour? It’s odd and feels written. Clearly, it’s just here to create rom-com drama between Peggy and Steve, but to what end?
We have a lot of questions about this minute. Tune in!
