OK, gotcha - and I would agree with that. Steve Rogers, Director of SHIELD? I think he believes in an organisation like the SHIELD that Peggy Carter set up, but I would be a bit more interested if it wasn't a long-term Hydra plot that is why SHIELD aren't that organisation, but it's a more mundane explanation of what happens when you try and live by the values that Cap holds dear in the 21st century. It's clearly heading that way, Fury especially, but then takes a left turn.

My point about the romance is a semi-jokey one, but it makes me think about the gender roles in this film. It's the first solo film where there isn't a clearly-defined male superhero and female love interest dynamic. Peggy and Pepper and Jane are great but I love that there isn't that dynamic, and I am thinking about how I might interpret the dynamic differently if Bucky were female and Steve would rather die than leave her on the helicarrier.

(I don't know where they're going in the third film - the presence of Crossbones and Agent 13 does set up one plotline, and I can even see how the dismantling of SHIELD leads into the setup for Civil War, but I can't figure out where that fits with Avengers 3 first. I love that I can think about where we might go three films down the line.)
