Okay, so it’s not Albert Pyun’s “Captain America” (soon to be re-released on DVD for the first time — what a coincidence!), but give it a chance, Joe Johnston’s version of the Star-Spangled Avenger might surprise you. Marvel certainly hopes so. The “Captain America: The First Avenger” official site has revealed some new images from the movie. Check them out below.
“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.
