Captain America Fan Film: The Fighting Avenger


I gotta admit, I’m dying to see Joe Johnston’s big-budget “Captain America: The First Avenger”. I’ve always liked the good Captain, especially back in my comic book reading days. Until the Cap’n shows up on screens July 22, 2011, though, here’s a 5-minute fan film by Wayside Creations called “The Fighting Avenger” to tie you over. Just keep in mind, it’s a non-profit fan film, so don’t start getting all nit-picky about it, you fanboys.

An American heavy weapons squad comes under heavy fire during a patrol and must fight off their German attackers to survive. Luckily, they have a secret weapon.

    That was pretty good for a low budget indy short. I’m hoping that the big budget film has a similar feel to the war scenes and it doesn’t go too far into the sci-fi/comicbook action. I want some comic book feel to it but the war parts, until we get HYDRA should be like Saving Private Ryan.

      I agree. I’d love for it to be as realistic as possible. I always thought that if they did HYDRA in a movie they should be more of a sub division. Like a special forces for the German army.

    If Wayside Creations stick together, and don’t get big heads and split up, they will find success together, and as individuals. I think they are the next Speildbergs’ and Lucas’. Again, they have to remain together, as success comes. Hard for young people.
