I gotta admit, I’m dying to see Joe Johnston’s big-budget “Captain America: The First Avenger”. I’ve always liked the good Captain, especially back in my comic book reading days. Until the Cap’n shows up on screens July 22, 2011, though, here’s a 5-minute fan film by Wayside Creations called “The Fighting Avenger” to tie you over. Just keep in mind, it’s a non-profit fan film, so don’t start getting all nit-picky about it, you fanboys.
An American heavy weapons squad comes under heavy fire during a patrol and must fight off their German attackers to survive. Luckily, they have a secret weapon.
