Avengers – Some Assembly Required Series Episode 4

Captain in the Rye

In the early 1990s the country was hungry for more superhero films. Batman had come out and shown us that comic book characters could be done without camp, and studios rushed to get more superhero projects in development. Yet despite Batman’s success, and 1991 being Captain America’s 50th Anniversary, 21st Century Film Corporation’s production of Captain America could not get distributed. Finally scuttled direct-to-VHS in 1992, this film has been a staple of the convention DVD bootleg circuit. Finally receiving not one but two official releases in 2011 to tie into Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger, does this 1990s version deserve another look? Listen to Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie’s review to find out!
