Love how they tied in his comic book uniform. Is that where he came from in the comic mythology? And nice tie-ins with the other movies in the Avengers series. They obviously put a lot of thoughtful planning into these movies.

Evans pulls it off. He looks particularly cool when he throws his shield. The skinny effects were amazingly perfect. Tucci is so good. Weaving does well. Atwell’s OK, but isn’t she really a poor man’s Kate Beckinsale? Her character was right out of Pearl Harbor.

Loved the contemporary ending.
