Normally, I like the How it Should Have Ended series. They make smart points about movies while also being funny and respectful of the original material. These people don’t actually think these movie should end in a different way. It’s just a joke, and they put a ton of work into the product.
That balance is a little different when it comes to a Marvel movie. The whole, “Why don’t they call the Avengers?” angle is so played out that I was disappointed it became a big part of their latest video, How Captain America The Winter Soldier Should Have Ended. Of course, in reality, every one of these characters would call in reinforcements. But this isn’t reality. It’s a comic book story, and in a comic book that doesn’t happen. To say it should feels lazy.
On the other hand, they do make a fun point about Black Widow’s disguise technology and you get to see Batman and Superman grill Captain America and the Black Widow. Check out how Captain America: The Winter Soldier should have ended below.
Here’s the video. I think it’s worth watching but definitely not one of the best. Head here to see them all.
How Captain America The Winter Soldier Should Have Ended
What are your thoughts on this video? Smart? Funny? Or a little obvious? Like I said, usually these videos amuse me (hence me writing about it) and this one did to. However, this one definitely raises a larger discussion point. Are we at a point, ten movies later, that the “They should have called The Avengers” thing is over? I think so. I also have a feeling we’ll see the true escalation of what really constitutes the full team in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Plus, I wouldn’t put it past Joss Whedon to pepper in some jokes about that in the new film. We’ll see though.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is out on Blu-ray in September. Avengers: Age of Ultron is out May 1.
