Captain America: Behind The Shield Featurette is All About, Well, The Shield

Brand-spanking new “Captain America: The First Avenger” featurette released by the Internet security people at Norton, which gives well-deserved attention to Captain America’s other prized possession, that shield of his. Let’s face it, no one has a shield like the good Captain, and this 3-minute spot explores that aspect of America’s first super human soldier.

“Captain America: The First Avenger” will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving.)

Starring Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Stanley Tucci, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Richard Armitage, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Natalie Dormer, Neal McDonough, Toby Jones, JJ Feild, and directed by Joe Johnston.

The shield flies July 22, 2011.
