America, f#@k yeah! Chris Evans gets buff in the trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger

Mar. 23, 2011by: Dave Davis

Since the brief Super Bowl spot, we've been anxiously awaiting more of Chris Evans' U.S. Grade-A beef in a full trailer for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and it's finally here in star-spangled glory.

Marvel's patriotic Super Soldier helps defeat WWII-era evil this July 22nd, with a vibe decidedly reminiscent of THE ROCKETEER (appropriately, since it's from the same director Joe Johnston). That skinny Evans effect is nearly as convincing as it is unnerving, and overall the movie looks like a big fun action-adventure with no shortage of nods and links to the greater Marvel movie Universe (hello, Howard Stark!). Enjoy!

Extra Tidbit: I'm still fuzzy on who Cap is supposed to be avenging. His brothers in arms who fell on the battlefield?

OOOOH SNAP!!! Looks awesome!!! Can't wait.

Although, I liked the other trailer that came before that one better.

It's funny how you see more in the new trailer, but less at the same time. If anyone gets what I mean...

Looks better than Thor. Thor just doesn't do it for me but this actually looks promising.

I'm definitely liking what I see. But I had faith since I figured Joe Johnston was hired because of "The Rocketeer" and not any of his more recent work. Trailer seems a little modeled on that "Inglorious Basterds" teaser, though with a lot more flag-waving, which is a good thing in this case. Looks like the action is a little more grounded than in some tentpole movies of late. That is both appropriate for the times, and a nice nod to the old-fashioned popcorn movies. Or else I just haven't

Looks great even after watching it 25 times! It's a good thing Steve held the shield at an angle at the end because Peggy could've easily shot herself with a ricochet. She's funny, hot but not very bright apparently.

Rocketeer

....now there was a movie that was underrated. Loved the vibe, shame no sequel. This just looks fantastic and I am very disturbed by the little Chris Evans. Anyone know how they did that crazy shit? In my twisted way I hope they did the muscly bit first then starved him to near Machinist proportions for filming his first scenes.

Why did they change the actor for Howard Stark?????????

I was looking forward to seeing John Slattery continue his role from Iron Man 2. For cripes sake, were we not supposed to notice that? Just like we don't notice that they changed Bruce Banner or Rhodey?

Anyway, looks good. Glad to see they gave a WWII soldier a fucking gun!

This takes place a good 20 years before Slattery's scenes in Iron Man 2, so I guess they decided to go with a different actor. Don't know why they didn't just make Slattery look younger...

People who get on the bandwagon of "He's a soldier, he used guns before..." totally miss the point.

I don't really mind the idea of him having a gun, but I prefer a gunless Cap; I can see both sides of the argument though. I don't really expect him to use it often, they might have just wanted to show him shooting in fear that people wouldn't dig the shield throwing; once they're in the theater though, then they can be sold on that.

Nobody complains that Nolan's Batman has rockets on his batmobile or machine guns on the batpod, so why is it so hard to accept a soldier carrying a gun.Let's be patient, there may be an explanation as to why he discards a firearm at some point.

Have you ever read any Captain America comics??? And I don't mean the ones where Bucky is now Cap. Go and read some of the 40s comics, Cap uses guns every now and then. YOU totally miss the point my friend.

Also, I don't really understand why the need arises to constantly compare this to Thor. You get two superhero movies that, so far, look great. Take what is given to you and enjoy them both, bitches!

My favorite superhero

Been a huge fan of Cap since I was a wee child...this looks awesome! That opening shot is gorgeous. Loving the style and I like that the trailer was focused on his character. Him grabbing the garbage can lid as a shield was a nice touch. He's avenging against "evildoers" by the way its fairly self evident. And is that Bucky kicking his ass in the alley?

Never been a big fan of Captain America, but this movie does look promising. Only wish they tone down skinny Evans, it just look waaaay too comical with his big head. Also never really like the premise of a guy must take steroids to help his country.
