The other Captain America movie - this 1973 Turkish version in which he teams up with a Mexican wrestler and fights evil Spiderman

It's called 3 Dev Adam, which, apparently, means 3 Giant (or Mighty) Men; an alternative title is Captain America and Santo vs. Spider-Man. SpiderMan, whose bushy eyebrows pop through the eye-holes of his mask, is on a crime spree: he steals golden statues, attacks strippers in strip clubs, and murders people with shower nozzles, speedboat motors, and guinea pigs.

Naturally, the legendary super-hero team of Captain America and El Santo (a Mexican wrestler and folk icon, per Wikipedia) are called in to take care of business. According to the Amazon listing, "Istanbul is being terrorized by a crime wave led by Spiderman and the police call in American superhero Captain America and Mexican wrestler Santo to put a stop to it."

If you don't have time to watch the whole clip (it's only 4 minutes), start at 2:10 to see the evil Spiderman torture some guy with a guinea pig.  Captain America shows up at 2:58.

  1. That's the best four minute Turkish superhero movie I've ever seen.
