Captain America Update

Posted a while ago about some upcoming super hero movies, and there are 3 this year I’m pretty excited about. This is one of them.

Being released in July this year, Captain America: The First Avenger. The story has been told for nearly 60 years now, and I’m sure most people have heard of it, like batman and superman its just there.

Steve Rogers, was a sickly boy who wanted nothing more then to serve his country like the fighting men and women before him. He became a candidate for the Super Soldier program which would turn him into a symbol of America and her allies. The experiment was a success, unfortunately the nazi’s managed to find out about it and destroy the Dr. who created it and all of his work leaving Rogers as the only one.

In the days of WW2 Steve Rogers donned a brightly coloured uniform and led military forces against nazi germany as Captain America. Fighting his nemisis the Red Skull, an evil Nazi genius.

I’m not 100% sure what path the movie will take but it looks to be set in WW2 and stars Chris Evans as Cap, and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull. If it makes it around the current days you’ll see a final battle between then which leaves Cap stuck in a block of ice which freezes him until he is thawed out in the future.

The first video preview has been released in a superbowl clip recently, I’ve linked it from the youtube account I found. It looks promising, I wasn’t quite sure on Evans as Cap but he might just do it well. Then we have THe Avengers movie to look forward to!

  1. That scene where Hugo Pulls of his face revealing the redskull has totally put faith in me that he will pull off an awesome job playing that villain.

    I also love the fact they appear to be utilising alot of Cap’s diff suits.
