oh yeah that stupid 5 year thing. i was going by the timeline from 2011 to 2018so let's say he was mid 20's when he got put on ice. he was thawed out around 2010 or so. endgame takes place in like 2025 so that would put him at, let's say 40. at that point he went BACK to the 40's and lived his life with peggy until 2025 again when he gave the shield to sam. from 1945 to 2025 is 80 years, which would put him at 120. obviously give or take because we don't know how old he was when he got frozen, and we don't know exactly what year he went back to when he stayed with peggy.
yeah, i think a lot of people forget that because the movies PRETTY much line up with real world dates, right up until endgame where it jumps 5 years.oh yeah that stupid 5 year thing. i was going by the timeline from 2011 to 2018
yeah, i was calculating that cap was say for example 25 in 1945 when presumably he went into the ice. that would make him born in 1920 which if he goes back in time to when he left, he would be 98 by Infinity war. then you add 5 years for 2023, then five years for 2023 again. then add 7 years he was thawed. that makes him about 116 give or take a few years. yeah he's old as fuck no matter how you slice it.yeah, i think a lot of people forget that because the movies PRETTY much line up with real world dates, right up until endgame where it jumps 5 years.
but yeah, that's why i pointed out isiah bradley is like 100 or so, probably a little older? he didn't get the serum 15 years later than cap, but cap got an extra 15 years or so of life due to wibbly wobbly timey whimey
zemo is enjoyable to watch simply because bruhl knocks it out of the park. the character itself is pretty standard fare. though i guess that's sort of subtle criticism of the show. there isn't much NEW ground. i mean i guess it's new in terms of the MCU, but it's covering character arcs that are like 30 years old so comic fans don't have much to really talk about. there's not really anything INTERESTING going on. like, the actors are all doing a great job and the set pieces and editing are all pretty good but there's nothing REALLY going on. at least with wandavision every episode was a headscratcher that encouraged water cooler type conversations. the only thing to talk about with this show is who the power broker is and captain racism.I just caught up on this show. Zemo is a villain, right? Because I found myself cheering him on at every step. He's the only one worth a damn and doing what needs to be done.
At the very least, she probably just shows up like she did here, recruiting.lol apparently the huge reveal in this episode was that JLD is joining the MCU as a new big baddie, that Countess chick is big in the comics i guess. She was originally supposed to make her bow in Black Widow movie, wonder if she's still in it
i love julia l dreyfuss and everything she has ever done but that was distracting, all I could think about was how much better Falcon and Winter Soldier would be if George and Kramer were there to argue with Zemo and Falcon about everything. George could get into a huge rant about tipping and per diems while they are in Europe
