Fans Actually Questioned Whether Captain America Would Have Nazis?

Captain America: The First Avenger takes place during World War II. The main antagonist, the Red Skull, works for Hitler. Yet somehow fans are still questioning whether Nazis will be in the movie.

Well, here is Fred Van Lente, prequel comic writer, to spell it out for those still uncertain about Nazi involvement and answering fans that thing the movie is downplaying Nazis.

Van Lente: It isn’t. Captain America: First Vengeance is chockfull of Nazis, particularly once we start getting into Johann Schmidt’s origin in chapters 3 and 4. They’re not downplayed. Schmidt runs an organization called Hydra, which starts as a part of the Third Reich power structure, and so therefore they are Nazis.

I can sort of see why people are like, they’re not seeing a bunch of guys in SS uniforms or Gestapo uniforms running around in the Super Bowl trailer— that’s because many of the Nazis in First Avenger wear Hydra uniforms.

It is not some kind of rewriting of world history. There are Nazis in the movie, I’ve read the script. It is not trying to pretend that the Nazis didn’t exist, or that World War II didn’t happen the way we all know it from history.
