imagine sam wilson meandering into avengers tower to find steve and where is he anyway because it’s movie night and he didn’t show and he finds mjolnir propped against some door and is like ‘ha ha steve bought one of those ebay replicas, what a nerd’ and picks it up to go tease steve but then steve comes bursting out of the room now that mjolnir’s not holding the door closed
and sam’s like ‘i can’t believe captain america is into avengers collectibles’ and waves the hammer at him and it lightning-fries the wall behind steve’s head and sam’s like ‘SHIT. SHIT!?!!? SHIT!!!!!’
later new yorkers are very surprised and upset to see the god of thunder racing along the sidewalk screaming “GIVE IT BACK!!!” to a cackling flying lightning-shooting robot-winged maniac and the large blond riding him like a pony
Original Trailer for the French release of Enfants de la Patrie, which premiered and made the European film festival rounds in 1998.
The film was written by Mathieu Kassovitz and directed by Benoît Astier. It stars American actors, Sebastian Stan and Chris Evans, as the lead roles of James Buchanan Barnes and Steve Rogers.
Since there was no American release (due to protests and cancellations) and no records kept of any promotional material from the UK, the low quality, un-subtitled French trailer is all we have. Unless you are lucky enough to get your hands on a bootleg VHS of course. I did my best with Youtube’s subtitle capabilities in both French and English. I hope they will suffice.
It’s a shame that this film, and the powerfully emotional and complicated, yet still unambiguously moral, vision Kassovitz holds up to Captain America, remains so nearly lost. Let us not allow that image to be forgotten.
This is a fanvideo based on a fake film described in the ever so wonderfully fabulous fanfiction Steve Rogers at 100: Celebrating Captain America on Film. A link to the fanfic is here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1599293

SCREAM. SOMEONE MADE A TRAILER FOR ONE OF THE FAKE MOVIES IN STEVE ROGER AT 100. THIS IS INCREDIBLE.
HOLY SHIT EMERGENCY THIS IS NOT A DRILL
“If all we’re doing to address toxic masculinity is to expand the masculine box, we’re not fixing anything.
The problem with the male “box” getting smaller as the gender roles for women expand isn’t feminism, it isn’t women, it isn’t “female privilege”, it’s masculinity, male privilege and the idea that being a man MUST BE BETTER than being a woman, that MAN STUFF CANNOT TOUCH WOMAN STUFF, that being a woman is bad, that being called a girl is the WORST THING EVER, that being told you throw like a girl will DESTROY YOU.
That’s the problem.
And the solution isn’t to push women back, and take all their stuff, and put up a flag saying I PROCLAIM THIS LAND IN THE NAME OF MANHOOD, it’s for “manhood” to get the fuck over itself, and understand there’s nothing wrong with sharing qualities, interests, traits, and identity with girls and women.”
Just dug up this article and thought I’d share the most crucial part of it. Ami masterfully examines how hurtful are patriarchal views on gender.
