Minute 102: From Parasite Leap to Tail Strike

Joining us today, we have Ryanne Bennett, Podcast Host and Content Creator, Audio Engineer, Digital Journalist from the Black Girl Nerds Podcast.

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

We discuss the level of violence in this minute and try to figure out if this is, in fact, the bloodiest minute in the MCU. Is there another instance of this much bloody human carnage? It’s horrifying. And thank goodness Steve isn’t afraid of heights!

We debate why Red Skull starts shooting at him. Did he know Cap made it onto the Valkyrie? Or does he think this is perhaps a rogue pilot and decides to take him down? It’s odd that it’s never shown to us that Red Skull sees that Cap’s on board.

It’s a fun minute to discuss for sure. Tune in!
