Let’s face it, Captain America is a pretty retro character, so it makes sense that he’s getting a retro poster that also gives a nod to the first issue of the Captain America comic book, featuring the Star Spangled Avenger punching the crap out of that rapscallion Adolf-something. Yeah, take that, Adolf!
100 copies of the poster was printed up by Marvel Studios to give away to cast and crew (which means it’s definitely a collectible if you can find a copy), with five finding their way into the hands of the Hero Complex crew, who will be giving them away to five lucky dogs this Sunday at their Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood.
The artist of the piece is one Paolo Rivera.
“Captain America: The First Avenger” stars 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 is directed by Joe Johnston. The Cap gives Adolf the business July 22, 2011.
