Zechs is correct about Viper, wrong about pretty much everything else, especially about Elektra, Mr. Freeze, and Quest for Peace.
That's actually a pretty good batting average for him

I don't know how many Cap films they are going to make I am just taking a reasonable, educated guess. You don't have to be a genius to recognize the fact that superhero movies have been and are currently over saturating the market. Between now and January 1, 2016 we will see the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, The Fantastic Four, X-Men: Apocalypse, and "Superman/Batman." That's 9 films in 2 years from just Marvel and DC! The average moviegoer is going to grow weary of the superhero genre eventually.
No, there certainly isn't a rule saying that Viper couldn't "share" the spotlight with Zemo and other villains. Personally, I prefer that a film doesn't sacrifice storytelling for more characters and films that attempt to pull a Spider-Man 3 or Batman & Robin concern me.
I won't argue with you there because we weren't originally talking about any of that. We were originally talking about Viper in a Captain America film. In fact, Viper as a lieutenant for Baron Heinrich Zemo in an Agent Carter series could be interesting.

Oh, Zechs has started trolling, how quaint.

I enjoyed The Wolverine, mainly because Jackman is great at the part and he was able to carry the cast. The fight scenes were also nice and bloody in the extended cut. And of course the end-credits scene had me pumped. The villains were the weak spot, imo. Silver Samurai wasn't done justice and Viper was just...there.
Vastly superior to the first movie.
Quest For Peace > Man of Steel
In fact I've watched Quest for Peace more time than Man of Steel. It's garbage I know is so bad it's entertaining while Man of Steel is garbage I just can't be entertained at all.
The premise for Quest for Peace was actually quite interesting: in a world threatened by nuclear holocaust, only someone as powerful as Superman can get rid of all the atomic bombs thus ensuring world peace. There are some very inspiring moments, like Superman’s speech at the UN or his examples of idealism and goodness, but overall the execution of the concept is inadequate. With the smallest budget of all the four Superman movies and a shoddy production, the plot holes and bad narrative choices were too evident and because of that the superhero franchise was negatively affected.
