New High-Res Images from Captain America The First Avenger

These images from “Captain America: The First Avenger” have popped up online at one point or another last week, but always in some very bad shape/scanned versions. A week later, the high-res versions of the images have now appeared online thanks to Empire. Check them out — one above, the rest below. And in case you missed it, check out the “Captain America” Super Bowl trailer here.

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.
