The first full-length “Captain America: The First Avenger” trailer is live, and though we’ve already seen many of the big moments in the early clips that were released, it’s nice to see the whole package as it’s meant to be presented.
The first installment of any comic book movie is usually an origin story, which tells how the protagonist either acquired his/her powers or desire to put together a costume and fight crime. It’s probably a wise move, then, for director Joe Johnston to have the first trailer for ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ focus mostly on a skinny Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) joining a research project that turns him into the “super soldier” known as Captain America.
Certainly longer than the brief Super Bowl TV trailer, the trailer also offers more footage of Stanley Tucci as Dr. Erskine, the one that transforms Evans into his “taller” self, Tommy Lee Jones as Colonel Chester Phillips, and Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, a spy and Cap’s love interest.
Based on Marvel Comics’ character created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Captain America: The First Avenger was written by Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus. Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, Dominic Cooper and Neal McDonough co-star.
Possibly the most buzzworthy moment of the new trailer features Captain America catching and slinging his shield – something fans have been waiting to see since the film was first announced. Looks pretty good to us! What do you think? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below. [via Mashable, The Guardian (UK) and MTV]
