Producer Charles Roven felt that WW I held special meaning for Diana. Amazons are skilled in hand to hand combats. They are also used to the fact that fight is an honorable thing. But all of this was changed in World War I when automated arms were introduced and the armies were fighting with guns, bombs, rifles etc. It was no longer what would he call ...

Lola VFX worked on the body transformation of Chris Evans. From the article How to make a Captain America wimp Lola had three primary approaches to shrinking the 220 pound Evans to the 140 pound guy he needed to be, while maintaining Evans’ performance as closely as possible. Body double / actor doubling for the entire body. The body double was ...

He did NOT literally see the future, of course, because that isn't at all what happened (in his future). He is simply talking about his vision for the future, presumably when the entire earth is ruled by him and Hydra so there is no need for national flags. This is just a villain being overconfident in his victory and using metaphorical language. Also, the ...

The Avengers is an Initiative: a sanctioned team brought together to defend the world against threats beyond the scope of SHIELD and the world's governments. Captain America is the first Avenger not only because he was the first to be recruited (Thor doesn't even know about the Avengers until partway through the movie: even Stark was aware of their ...

Initially I thought of something and it came VERY close to the actual answer(Marvel Wiki). The space stone earlier existed as the stone itself (the pure form) The Tesseract was built by Asgardians to control the power held within it. The Asgardians used the Tesseract as a means to teleport apart from the bi-frost. The space stone can not only teleport its ...

Steve Rogers/Captain America is in perfect physical condition as a result of the super serum he was injected with. This took him from a small, weedy person unfit for military service into who he is today. His mental strength is a combination of the serum and his own beliefs and convictions. Leading up to the super serum experiment, he is shown as standing ...

Update..! Given the recent release of Avengers: Infinity War, it's revealed that This would also explain why the Tesseract stayed on Earth, instead of going with Red Skull. Did the Red Skull actually die or was he sucked to another space dimension? Because the Tesseract is later revealed to be a Space Infinity Stone I just watched that scene over and ...

The infiltrator did not have the access to kill Erskine until such time as the serum was ready to be demonstrated. It's clear that the infiltrator (Heinz Kruger) as Fred Clemson had not visited the project before since he is introduced to Col. Philips who does not know him. Then we also know that acquisition of the serum (and perhaps also denying it to the ...

At the start of The Avengers, the place where the experimentation is ongoing on the Tesseract under the guidance of Erik Selvig, is Project Pegasus. This is the name of the project that was being led by Mar-Vell on Earth in the 90s. SHIELD never lost the item, they handed it off to Project Pegasus for research. It's possible that Mar-Vell recognised it ...

Entertainment Weekly asked this of the director and producers. In short they saw it as a new era of warfare, making for a more interesting setting where everything is new to everyone. Add in the fuzzy morality of right and wrong, and who is evil or not that applies to both the setting and the story (in the eyes of the writers/producers), and it just made ...

There are several misconceptions in your question, so I'm just going to address the general question of "What happened to Bucky Barnes after he fell off the train?". The first thing worth noting is that in Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers rescued Bucky from Hydra captivity after finding him having recently been experimented on by Dr. Arnim ...

Marvel had their comic books to draw from, in these the Terreract was already an established object as was the fact that it contained an Infinity Stone. but that was in the comics and not the MCU so i'll just stick to the MCU here. The writers new the story arc they wanted to put into film, the Infinity War... but it was impossible, they would never be able ...

Most probably he is alive but nothing for sure yet: From screenrant: The Avengers: Infinity War Prelude comic features flashbacks to that scene, and it drops a tantalizing hint that the Red Skull may have survived. It all begins with The First Avenger. There, the Red Skull’s fate is sealed when he unwisely picks up the Tesseract. He initially ...

The only reason given in the movie is just that he was exposed to super soldier serum which made him able to survive and even in some animated TV shows, there is no other explanation given rather than this. The same question is present on Scifi How did Captain America survive freezing? with the same answer. There are some un-sourced claims present on Quora ...

No. Klaus Schmidt is just an alias not a real name. His real name is Sebastian Shaw. In movie universe, they have no relation and as per my comics knowledge they are not in any blood relation. Klaus Schmidt name is just used for the film purpose only it doesn't exist in comics universe and even his Nazi relation is also shown in movie only.

the MCU is an amalgamation of 616 universe and 1610 universe and the cap portrayed by chris gets his characteristic traits from 616 universe and his powers from 1610 universe, the evidences are, in the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Right in the first scene after completing his jog, we see Falcon (presumably a peak human or at least above ...

Captain Marvel merely gave Nick the idea that Earth needs protectors from aliens and other beings with superhuman powers. Captain Marvel wasn't even on Earth until after the events of Infinity War had occured. This means that Nick could not even have asked her to join the Avenger Initiative. Also Captain America came to be known to the world before the ...

From scifi.se's answer on similar question Because Bucky was also frozen for most of that time: Dialogue from The Winter Soldier makes it clear that Hydra put Bucky back into suspended animation after completing each mission, and only unfroze him when they needed him: Zola: The procedure has already started. You are to be the new ...

The opening sequence of Captain America: The First Avenger, combined with the historical information at the start of Thor provides the answer. ~1000 years ago, Asgardians fought the Frost Giants on Earth as part of a cross-realm war. During this war, the Tesseract was lost on the Earth. (Source : Scifi) So it is clear that Odin didn't give it to anybody ...

Because the Tesseract activated when the Red Skull held it Despite what everyone on Earth believed, Schmidt didn't perish from the Tesseract. Instead, he was teleported to the planet Vormir, the home of the Soul Stone, as punishment for his abuse of the Space Stone's power. Due to loving no one but himself, Schmidt was unable to take control of the Stone ...

Unclear. In the movies it appears that he is actually a Captain. In the film Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers enlists into the Army as a private (rank E-1). Upon his successful transition via the Super Soldier serum and a training period of some length, he is promoted to the literal rank of Captain (O-3), as shown by his service uniform ...

This Tesseract in Captain Marvel was stable and wasn't overreacting. However, it was overloaded in The First Avenger, that's why it burned a hole through the metal aircraft. When Red Skull and Captain America fight in the plane, they broke the hydra-built machine holding tesseract. It was already reacting in that machine and breaking it caused it to ...

The single greatest feat of strength seen by Steve Rogers in the MCU movies was in Age of Ultron. In the siege of the Hydra base, Cap is seen flipping his motorcycle (a 2012 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim or a Harley-Davidson Street 750) over his head, into a Military grade Humvee. Dry standing weight of these bikes are in the 600+ lbs range. That's not ...

It seems to be a blueprint to his Robot Body. In the comics (Wikia) Needing funds to continue his research, Arnim Zola presented his first invention, the creation of device that would transfer someone's essence to a cloned body, to Adolf Hitler, who agreed to become his patron. This device and partnership allowed Hitler to survive World War II as the ...

Because Zola doubted that Dr. Erskin will succeed. Here is the conversation between Schmidt and Dr. Zola: Zola: I just don't see why you need concern yourself. Zola: I can't imagine he will succeed. Again. In case he succeeds in making a serum, they also need to get the serum to snatch the only defense of allies in order to ensure their victory. ...

Vibranium. It is an entirely fictional material created solely for the Marvel Universe. To quote from its wiki: Vibranium is a rare, naturally occurring meteoric ore, theorized to have an extraterrestrial origin; later proven true. It has been found in two distinct varieties and was most abundant in Wakanda. Vibranium is not as hard or dense as ...
