Watch Captain America Throw his Shield Around in First Two Clips

Here are your first two clips from Joe Johnston’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”. The first one is a pretty action-packed clip featuring the good Captain and his shield in action against some Hydra soldiers, though it could be me, but it looked much too obviously undercranked for my liking. Still cool, though, to see that shield flying around and ricocheting off things and smacking bad guys in the head. Much better than a comic panel, don’t you think? The second clip features Hayley Atwell being a tad peeved at the good Captain.

“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, and JJ Feild.
