Superhero Update: Captain America
I saw the new Captain America movie today, and I loved it. I will be writing a review in the coming days, but I wanted to bring up this little movie nerd reference in the film.
There is clearly an Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark reference in the movie. The Red Skull complains about Hitler running around the desert looking for “trinkets”.
While Hitler did do that in real life history, this remark is a clear nod to Joe Johnston working on Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Johnston worked on IJ as an art director. (Plus, SW Episodes IV-VI and BSG)
It was a nice touch that I am sure most people wouldn't get.
