MCU in Review Issue No. 4: “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011)

We have to ask, of all the things Steve Rogers says he could do all day, do we think that he could go toe-to-toe with our Marvel podcasters-in-residence at the mic? We may never know for sure, but we do know this; Devin and Teddy are back at it for Issue No. 4 of MCU in Review, turning their attention towards Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Spoiler alert, they both LOVE it. 

Why you ask? Well it turns out that a superhero blockbuster working to re-tool the confines of heroic masculinity that features a banging performance from Chris Evans is exactly the center of the fandom Venn diagram for Devin and Teddy. Coming off a ~tough~ two-movie run our hosts are refreshed to spend time celebrating a film that, with the exception of one iceberg sized plothole, holds up all these years later. Oh, and if you stick around to “The Horney Corner,” you might just learn something rather surprising about Teddy’s fictional character inclinations…
