A new poster for “Captain America” starring Chris Evans as the Star-Spangled Avenger. Marvel Studios already has a hit on their hands with “Thor”, and “X-Men: First Class” is proving to have staying power. That just leaves “Captain America: The First Avenger”, which if it hits, and hits big, will pave the way for even more Marvel Comics characters come to life on the big-screen, and that is good news for any comic book geek, past or present.
“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.
