I'm on board with the criticism that universe-building hamstrings Marvel's stories, both in print and on screen, by placing individual plots in the service of an ever-expanding marketing plan. But this movie seemed less burdened by the shared universe than most of Marvel's line. The bigger problem was that the creation of an ultimate threat took so much exposition that the more personal stories of betrayal and redemption were buried beneath tons of helicarrier debris. This seems like yet another action movie that could raise the stakes by lowering them. They could have used a few more scenes of Cap wandering through the modern world that weren't transparent set-up for continuity sign-posts like Falcon or Agent 13.
