Running Time: 2 hr 16 mins

Rating: PG-13

Who’S It For? Even Marvel pessimists will have fun with this one.

Overall

In record-breaking time, even for Marvel, a comic book character has had their existence (basically) rebooted. The arc may be continued from the previous film, and some of the actors may reappear, but this take on Captain America is bonafide divergent. It’s not the hollow nostalgic relic seen in his debut Captain America: The First Avenger, nor is this the goofy time alien/boy scout he was made in to be in the ensemble film The Avengers. »
