Three New Captain America Character Posters

22 Comments

Three new character posters for Marvel Studios’ upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger”, featuring Chris Evans as Captain America, Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull, and Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. I would have liked to see something more dynamic and less “photoshop together by an intern”-ish, but eh, I guess I’ve seen worst in terms of character banners.

“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.

The Cap’n saves the day July 22, 2011.

    Cap looks very Ultimate-y (which I like). The Red Skull looks a lot better than he did in previous pics, too.

  • Vim Crony

    These posters are soooo fucking boring.

  • Juggernaut

    I like em’! The Ultimates look is cool.

  • Juggernaut

    I really wish that Evans would harden up his look though. The pouty lips are getting pretty old pretty quick. LOL!

      What do you want a snarl? He isn’t Wolverine. LOL Give him a break, those are his lips man.

      • Juggernaut

        A more pronounced chin and jaw. Maybe a grimace. I don’t know??? I’m sure that in action he’ll be fine. The pics just seem soft.

          Oooh you want plasitc surgery i get you. LOL.

          • Juggernaut

            I really don’t think that it’s asking too much to change his expression to one of a man of war. Is it?

            I was reponding to the “more pronounced jaw” part. LOL. But No it is not too much to ask. I’m just mesing with you man.

    All around I like them. The Peggy Carter one is rather bland though. shoulda ben her with the Howling Commandos in the background.

    • Juggernaut

      I agree. Even her packing heat would be better. I hope to see ones come out for Arnim Zola, Bucky Barnes, Chester Phillips, Dr. Erskine. Maybe even ones for Dum Dum Dugan and the rest of the Howling Comandos!

        And dont forget Gabe Jones. Thjough i really dont think erskine needs a poster.

        • Juggernaut

          You’re probably right about Erskine. However, he does have a pivotal role and is played by a signifigantly well known actor. A Gabe Jones one would be cool. Although, I’m not sure how prominant he’ll be in the film.

          • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

            I didn’t mean by himself, I meant a poster with Gabe Jones, Dum Dum and the rest of the Comandos.

          • Juggernaut

            Oh yeah! That would be sweet! I really hope that Fury and the Comandos are in it a lot and not just a few scenes. Ya think there will be any mention of The Invaders in this one? I read somewhere a while back that they were going to have altered versions of the more reality based members (Union Jack, Spitfire, Flaming Skull without the supernaural elements, etc.) I hope they do. A nod or easter egg of some sort reffering to Namor would be bad ass too! Especially since now they’re going with the whole “were not alone” aspect by bringing in Thor, Thanos and the Skrulls.

    @Juggernaut- yeah i heard they’re basically making them regular soldiers. I really kid of wish they’d at least have Union Jack with like a scarf with the Union jack on it or a mini flag wrapped around his head or hanging from his gear, not just a patch. And its very doubtful they’ll mention Namor.

    • Juggernaut

      You’re right on both counts. Union Jack’s costume will most likely be very reminiscent of Michael Fassbender’s Archie Hickox role from Inglorious Basterds. I’d love to see him in his latest outfit (Black, super spy with the mask) or even have the modern day version show up in a sequel taking place in the present. Namor will most likely not be mentioned. Hopefully they give him his own film some day. I’m sure that whoever they use will have some sort of identifying symbol or line. I can’t wait to see what they do.
      Also, I wanted to ask you a question. I went this part week to see Thor for the second time. I watched very closely for all of the nods and easter eggs. I saw all of the relics in Odin’s vault, the Donald Blake, Banner and vague Pym references. I saw the Jouney Into Mystery billboard too. I also caught the more obvious Stark shout out and the inclusion of Agent Sitwell and the after credits scene with Fury and the Cosmic Cube. That night I was pretty confidant that I spotted everything. However, I recently watched an interview with Brannaugh and he was asked about possible easter eggs. He said to pay close attention to the earth scene with the Vikings. I have no idea what he was talking about! Any clue???

        None. First I’m hearing about that particular one.

        Sent on the go.

    The Red Skull has “some” affiliation with Nazis, If I remember correctly, I wish that’d show through a little more than his “Futuristic SS Coat”…BOOORING!
