Chris Evans as Captain America. Can he pull it off? Well he better, because if Evans doesn’t convince as the Cap’n, then that “Avengers” movie is gonna look mighty weak. We know Evans can do the handsome, square-jaw Steve Rogers, but can he convince in the red white and blue suit and shield? See for yourself and decide in the first-ever trailer, a quickie 30-second Super Bowl spot for Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”.
Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Steve Rogers is inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, Rogers gets rejected, but later offered the opportunity to take part in a special experiment called Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers is administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays,” awakening from the treatment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America embarks on a war against evil.
Starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Toby Jones and directed by Joe Johnston.
