Long before the MCU, B-movie director Albert Pyun released a Captain America film. Our Marvel expert has tackled the trash spectacle in his series “Marvel Mal Anders” and comes to the conclusion: So bad that he’s awesome!
When it comes to the worst Marvel movies of all time, 1990’s Captain America keeps coming up. Oliver Kalkofe and Peter Rütten even paid homage to Albert Pyun’s trash film in the TELE-5 cult series “SchleFaZ – The Worst Films of All Time”. The director behind films like “Cyborg” and “Kickboxer 2” once planned his Marvel Comics adaptation for the big screen. After many problems in the production, she never saw it in most countries of the world, but mostly appeared directly on VHS – in Germany in February 1991, in the USA even in July 1992 and thus almost two years after the originally planned theatrical release .
Matt Salinger plays in the trash grenade Steve Rogers aka Captain America, who fights against the Red Skull only during the Second World War and then again in 1993, after his adversary has meanwhile been responsible for the murders of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther, among other things King was responsible.
Our Marvel expert Sebastian explains to you in the video how comic-accurate everything is, why this 90s cap has such funny little rubber ears and how much fun you can have with the film despite all the quirks.
