Marvel tells us the history of the Soviet Union-inspired villain the Red Guardian in this animation.
Art often reflects life. During the tense period in the Cold War, the patriotic Captain America’s greatest foe was the USSR super soldier Red Guardian. He was a caricature of the bombastic communist regime that ruled over Russia at the time. He had a booming eastern accent, huge muscles and a fierce dislike of anything American.
He was a relatively unknown character in the MCU until he recently featured in the trailer for the new Black Widow film. His unique look and style got lots of people interested in finding out more about him. In this interesting video, the team from Marvel tells us a bit more about him and reveal his interesting backstory. It’s a great little animation that gives us some insight into one of Marvel’s most obscure and odd villains. We can’t wait to see this wacky character brought to life on the big screen this Summer.
