Matt Salinger

According to TMZ (you know, those gossip queens that that have their own TV show, if you could call it that) Reb Brown is one pissed off actor. For those of us born after the 1970’s, Brown portrayed the first Captain America in Captain America and Captain America II: Death Too Soon. Two made-for-TV Captain America movies that ran in 1979. Since then he hasn’t really done anything of much importance, so naturally he’s upset that he was left out of Captain America: The First Avenger.

“Brown tells TMZ that at one point … the producers told his rep they were into the idea of having him make an appearance in the movie. But before he knew it … he was reading about production getting underway in London without a single call coming his way.”

Aww, they didn’t call. Apparently Brown believes there is some unwritten rule about superhero movies in which the last actor to play the character gets a cameo in the next big movie. Lou Ferrigno got his cameo in The Hulk so why shouldn’t Reb get his?

Hate to break it to you Reb, but that means the cameo would go to Matt Salinger and his “work” in the 1990’s Captain America. Maybe Joss Whedon will call him up for a part in The Avengers…and Skrulls will fly outta my ass.

Another week, another Captain America story. This week however, is a double header of the red, white and blue super soldier with a bad ass shield that cracks Nazi skulls like coconuts. More footage of ‘First Avenger” trickles in and retro Cap film rears its ugly head again.

My shield is better then your shield

From Entertainment tonight comes a one minute sneak peak at the World War II superhero movie. Either watch this shitty clip filled with horrible EW voice overs or just wait till Friday when the full official trailer is released.

Also riding the America train is the original 1990 ‘Captain America’, starring Matt Salinger and directed by Albert Pyun. What was going to be a big budget movie ended up becoming a low budget,  B-movie farce. A movie so shitty that Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger and even Val Kilmer passed on.  The film is coming back in a new “Directors cut” of the film, based on Pyun’s own 35 mm CA work picture and temp mix from before he left the film.

Arriving on Blu-Ray in May, and screen at the Fantasia Film Festival in July and B-Movie Celebration in September, you can find out more at Albert Pyun’s website:
