@agent41: I didn't say die you imbecile, I said "sacrifice" which gives off a broad array of meaning. Steve TREVOR sacrifices his life via a suicide mission where as Steve ROGERS sacrifices his life in what he thought would be suicide, but wound up as a man out of time.
Yes one lived and one died, but the sacrifice both men made were pivotal plot points in the film because they were both doing what they believed to be right..... in a plane....during a war.....as their girlfriends can't do shit to save them.....
Do you need instructions on how to pour your cereal in the morning? I don't believe anyone is this dense.
@minorincon32: No one is even saying WW is a bad movie either. The similarities are there. Much like how the first Avengers and AoU both used mindcontrol and disposable armies as plot points in both films. It's not bias or shitting on one film or the other, it's literally just stating a fact.
@agent41: I'm thinking of a patriotic comic book movie set during a world war and during the third act this guy named Steve sacrifices himself piloting a plane of bombs to save the world as his girlfriend can't do a damn thing to save him. What movie am I thinking of? Hint: it begins and ends in the present day and everything in between is set 70+ years before.
Just because it straight up copied Cap doesn't make it a bad movie at all. Ant-Man was essentially Iron Man all over again and that was still a good movie. It just means that, yes, superhero films as a whole are formulaic. But both sides will bitch and moan til were all dead in the ground so what's the point.
The film opens in the present day when a relic from the past is found which shifts the film to a flashback. (Cap/The photograph)
The patriotic hero is a fish out of water that stands for truth and justice and meets the love of their life via the army. The two grow closer to each other throughout the rest of the film.
Along the way they team up with a ragtag band of militant mercenaries to go on raids during the war. (Howling Comandos/Blackhawks)
Unfortunately the end of the movie Steve (piloting an aircraft) sacrifices himself to save the world as his love interest can only sit in shock completely helpless before we jump back to the present day to set up for the next film.
EDIT: I just read the other comments in the thread and I'm thrilled I wasn't the only one who caught these similarities.
