CATFA 114: Corporate Storytelling at Its Highest Level
Minute 114: From Fury Approaching Steve to Markus & McFeely
Joining us on the show today, it’s Austin Tichenor from the Reduced Shakespeare Company!
In the one hundred fourteenth minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger…
With Austin Tichenor here, we have to look at how the movie reminds him of various elements in Shakespeare’s plays. And, of course, there’s the connection to the MCU that Shakespeare was also, essentially, a corporate storyteller of his time.
We talk about Steve’s run to Times Square and how that likely appears to him. There’s also the fact that he so readily stops to listen to Nick Fury. Is it just Fury’s authority? Or perhaps there’s a sense of him recognizing an element of Fury’s character that came from his era of stories?
There’s also an extended scene, which gives us an opportunity to talk about the importance of whittling down scenes and exposition because you honestly don’t need all that in there.
We also get to hear some of Austin’s favorite moments with Cap.
It’s a great minute with one of our favorite guests, bringing a lot of top notch conversation. Tune in!
