@battle_forum_junkie: DUDE! DID YOU SEE THAT BvS TRAILER! HOLY F**KING SHIT! ENOUGH OF THIS! GO WATCH THAT!
The video was deleted, but are you talking about the new teaser trailer released yesterday? I saw that one.
It was cool but I was a little disappointed, to be honest. We've already seen set photos of these two in their costumes, and they're just going to release a few seconds of said costumes just hanging up on display?
Don't get me wrong, it was still cool, and I get that it was a teaser, but the footage they released at SDCC got me leagues more excited for the movie than this did.
Maybe we'll get to see a full trailer when next SDCC rolls around.
@thehumanporch I definitely see where you're coming from. I'm curious, though, do you feel the same way about the more recent X-movies?. I felt they had a reasonable amount of humor - which the complete lack of did bring Man of Steel down a bit, IMO - but it wasn't to a point where it ever distracted from the story for me.
I'd ask Captain America if holding on to conviction in an apparently absurd world ever makes him feel like he's being something fake* for other people, and what his answer is to existentialism. He seems like a pretty smart guy, so I wanna know if his philosophical certainty is because he's a fictional character written that way, or because he has an answer. How he achieves this is more interesting than the SSS secret. It's cool if he fabricates his own objective meaning of life in order to provide an outlet/distraction for his drive, if a bit banal/disappointing.
*Not the same as the Steve/Cap duality. It's well-known that his Captain America identity has been manufactured by both the US military and himself. He's really a low-key, introspective guy in private, which is part of the reason why I'm asking him this.
That's a very interesting question - and probably the most interesting this thread will see, to be honest. Perhaps he feels he needs to hold so firmly to his sense of conviction because the world is so absurd. He's a guy who has seen a lot of gray areas in his time and I think that's the main reason he holds so firmly to said conviction - because there are so few that do. Regardless of his reasons I don't think that his beliefs are ever an act he has to put on.
