I went into this movie expecting nothing and I came out happy and confused about why I was happy! It had so happened that twice during that week I had dreams about Trigun, and somewhere during Act 2 Steve Rogers and Vash the Stampede became fused in my mind. And now I find that guy weirdly attractive?? Anyway:
-I liked how it played a simple, idealistic main character against a by-now typical “gritty” storyline of government conspiracies and endless plot twists.
I feel this contrast made Steve a more likable character and gave the conflict a nice emotional heartbeat. It was more, “omg poor Steve! he believed in America so much and now it’s disappointing him!” and less “Yeah we can’t trust the feds because illuminati! Welcome to the real world, sheeple!!!!”
That link going around claiming that a mean, cynical Captain America would have been better … baffles me! We already have a cynical Batman reboot, a cynical Superman reboot, and even a cynical Spiderman reboot. Now I don’t think optimistic is better or worse than dark and gritty, but in a climate filled with Dark superhero movies, casting Captain America as naive and honest is much more subversive than whatever the heck was going on in The Ultimates.
-women and minorities yay!

My God, you’re gay! I love you more now than it used to PRIDE!!!
To be clear tho I am only half-gay so you should probably just half-love me.
Anonymous asked you:
I was just wondering , do you plan to make someone for hyde ( I’m talking a lover or something like that ? ) or just keep him single ?
I don’t think Hyde is capable of romantic love in the way that Jekyll is. He has the hots for a more or less infinite amount of people and forms cat-like affectionate bonds with certain people (notably Frankenstein and Rachel) but he doesn’t really feel romantic attraction to anyone. He finds the idea of “lovers” gross in the way that most middle school boys might. He tends to actively avoid people that Jekyll has romantic feelings for- he finds the idea of emotional attachment to be pretty gross.
