Look I don't want to start Discourse ™ and I thought the new trailer looked great. But isn't Steve a criminal now? I'm really really interested in whether or not they're going to explain why a US highschool is using a fitness challenge from someone who is in hiding. Do you have any theories?
It is something I wondered about, too. Did they sweep that whole thing under the rug? I mean, on the one hand, I can definitely understand Ross and Co. telling the public that Captain America simply retired. They caught the bad guy (Zemo). Problem solved. Like, that is totally something I can see happening for PR reasons. Do they really want to set it up in the public’s mind that Captain America had to go on the run? What does that make Wakanda, harboring fugitives like that? What about their secret off-shore prison where they were holding US citizens without due process? About 1/3 of the UN members didn’t agree to the Accords to begin with, so presumably, there is still quite the debate about them. Not sure they would want the public’s first dealings with the Accords to involve all of those things. Plus, as Tony said, if Siberia came to light, then he’d have to arrest himself, so there has to be some kind of obfuscating going on. So, yeah, I can get behind the idea of a cover-up, but who knows? Will be interesting to see how they handle it!
