After director Louis Leterrier hinted that the Sentinel of Liberty, Captain America, would be making a cameo appearance in this summer's "Incredible Hulk," the internet has been a'buzzin' with fans calling shenanigans after the Star Spangled Avenger never materialized in the theatrical release.
However, with the release of the new "Incredible Hulk" DVD, those who were hoping to see Cap make his cinematic debut (yes, debut -- we're just gonna forget about the original 1990 film) can finally catch a glimpse -- and the key word being "glimpse" -- of Cap and his mighty shield thanks to the new highly-touted alternate opening scene which takes place in the Arctic Circle, where a despondent Bruce Banner goes to kill himself having failed to come up with a cure for his curse.
Granted, those who want to see Cap will need the help of a super high-definition television and DVD combo, but if you look closely -- very closely -- he's there in the background, frozen in ice just waiting to be found and reanimated a la his classic comic book origin. If you need further help spotting him, the fellas over at SlashFilm have a great series of photos (including the one posted here) as well as a drawing showing the outline of what's clearly Captain America and his shield. Regardless, between this and Nick Fury's appearance at the end of "Iron Man," Marvel continues to give fans plenty to be excited about for their upcoming films.
So do you think that's Captain America in the background, or is it just an ice patch that kinda looks like him? Sound off in the comments.
