Captain America: The First Avenger | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Fifth movie at bat: Captain America: The First Avenger. Chris Evans picks up the shield as Steve Rogers, a scrawny New Yorker who becomes the world’s most powerful super soldier — not to mention Josh and Kevin’s favorite hero in the MCU. Josh and Kevin explain why that is in this podcast, as well as cover some stories from Josh’s trip to the “First Avenger” set, and much more.

Coming next: The Avengers. Send your feedback for the recap by no later than May 11 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com.
