Dr. Zola in the new Captain America movie achieved in the 1970's what, according to the previews, Johnny Depp's character in Transcendence achieves in the present day. Is it weird/bad for the movie Transcendence that the whole, "uploading a consciousness into a computer," thing was just a subplot in Captain America Winter Soldier that fictionally occurred about 40 years ago? I'm going to say yeah, it is weird/bad for the movie Transcendence. Not only did the writers of the comic book character Dr. Zola beat the Transcendence writers by decades regarding the "uploading a consciousness into a computer," but then the Marvel movie writers did too, and made it a subplot in a movie that came out before Transcendence. Ouch.
