Captain America teaser poster already hinting at Avengers movie

Feb. 4, 2011by:

While the first official footage from CAPTAIN AMERICA is airing this Sunday during the Super Bowl, you can get a sneak at the teaser poster for the film, which should be hanging in your movie theater lobby in no time, right now. It appears as if Cap is in the midst of some ashy battle (or a post-apocalyptic ticker tape parade) and having a moment of solitude. "Contemplating the ifs," as Jules might say.

A fine, iconic image but what's with the goofball tagline? "Avenge" what, exactly? Shouldn't it be AVENGE-R? I'm kinda stuck on that point but if you can get past that, I like this poster quite a bit. What do you think? If you were in the Marvel Studios marketing department what would've been your idea for a tagline?

I think this may be my favorite film costume. Fantastic balance of true to material and logical realism

I love the grittiness and realism of the shield and everything, but you'd think Cap'n would get himself a new one every now and again.

Smiert is right! NewYorke if you truly thought these things through you would know that Cap's shield is made out of Vibranium! Which has been proven to be impervious to Adamantium, Cap's shield can actually slice through it. Look it up!

I doubt the shield is "indestructible". If it was, it wouldn't look quite so shitty in that poster. If it was, it wouldn't have the gouges in it...I understand the paint missing, but there are cuts and scratches on it.

I'm pretty certain Roger's shield is stronger than Wolverine's claws, the same for Thor's hammer. Adamantium is part of the formula for the shield, but its also mixed with some other shit that will go unknown forever since the creator died. Somethin' like that....

But I've been out nerded before. It happens....

Wolverines claws would not bend, sorry. if anything it would just take him a very long time to cut through it. They're both made out of practically the same material. I'm a nerd, I've thought these things trough at night when the power go's out.

Why would he do that? Its indestructible. Wolverine would, quit literally, bend his claws trying to slice through it...

G.I. Joe: The Prequel?

Am I the only one that thinks this looks like G.I. Joe: The Prequel? Red Skulls army looks like an older version of Cobra Commanders, the futuristic sets remind me of his underwater base, hell even this poster looks almost exactly like Channing Tatums character poster from the color tone, the background and the way the character is looking away. This reeks of one big cheesefest. Now dont get me wrong I really enjoyed G.I. Joe thought it was hell of fun but thats because I didnt hype it up

My bet is still on Ryan will always be Hannibal King Reynold's Green Lantern over this.

This will probably be the movie GI Joe should've/could've been rather than the crap that actually came.

You might have had a point until you admitted that you liked G.I. Joe.

And you have Unstoppable in your avatar? Talk about a cheesefest....

Tagline Should Read: "Nerd boner experienced from this poster, soon to be escalated by trailer, will shrivel up into your stomach when viewing the final cut in July. You will then compare to Thor, which will be pretty good, and then slowly forget about Captain America until the blu-ray release for a sneak peak at Avenger material. Thank You and Good Day."

This is a very tight looking poster. I have been mainly neutral on this project until recently. Mainly because Joe Johnston is 100 percent dedicated to making this a good adaptation and if he fails hes pretty much fucked. sick poster damn.

Great poster. This is probably my most anticipated superhero movie of the year.

I just think that this looks like it'll be a lot of fun whereas Thor will just be another Avengers prequel (Like Iron Man 2) rather than an actual standalone film.

Very excited for this one though.

honestly I don't realyl know much about him as I never really got into Cap in comics or anything. But from what I remember he was basically one of the first characters out there to claim the whole 'superhuman' thing before it was played out in just about every character in recent cinema and video game history.

I'm pretty sure he was just a regular schmoe fighting in the war, and then was killed or almost killed and frozen or something and then genetically enhanced to become faster, stronger,

Captain america still sucks!

C'mon, you can't tell me you all collected Captain america comics or still do. He is an out-dated, irrelevant hero, and will be forgotten in two weeks after the movie's release.

Not to rain nerd on your parade Mr. Mofo but the main guy featured in the upcoming movie hasn't been Captain America for a few years now. He handed the shield over to a younger, cooler guy (with a bionic arm, natch). But as for Big Steve in the comics, what keeps him relevant is not only his presence as a symbol for good, but that Marvel are constantly updating his and the reader's attitudes for different wars and situations (9/11 for example). Cap is mostly known for being a "man out of time"

Cap is mostly known for being a "man out of time" an old WW2 soldier who suddenly finds himself in a radically different world. The point you make is exactly what the movie is about. As for being forgotten, that's par for the course. Ask the average man on the street about Blade or Daredevil and they'll struggle to remember the movies. And yes I still collect the comics.

Actually I never got into Captain America, but he was always there, always around and seems to have ALWAYS had a very strong presence in the Marvel universe. He hasn't faded away or been forgotten since he was created and achieved pop culture status, and this will do well.. the exact opposite of that. No he's far from my favourite character but damnit I'm excited for this flick and the future of Cap.

Ooh, me likey. You know, sometimes I wish I was back in 2001 when everyone could get genuinely excited about superhero movies without having to worry too much. Like you'd see this poster and get into a frenzy, hype-level would fly off scale, and you'd really, really just want it to hit cinemas already. A decade and a bunch of shitty adaptations later, and it's kinda hard to lose yourself to the hype. There's always that nagging skepticism that's saying "Studios can always f**k things up".

Checkout these similar gritty Posters from AMRA Pictures Entertainment (APE)

Hey everybody,
That's one awesome poster! I like it! It seems like this is going to be the new pose craze for movie posters. But they have their roots in a little known movie project that has been turned down by all the big studios because it's not based on an existing comic book or graphic novel, though it obviously is inspired by comic books as their Posters reveal.



If you're interested in seeing what may be the inspiration for this new poster fad, go to AMRAPicturesEnt on youtube

If you're interested in seeing what may be the inspiration for this new poster fad, go to AMRAPicturesEnt on youtube you'll see a promo reel for "Road Kill." It's at

[link]

It's an independent project the folks over at AMRA Pictures Entertainment (APE) have been working on for a few years now and have shopped it around to every major studio in Hollywood, to no avail. The thing is their poster design is very similar in tone and grittiness to this new Captain America poster and the Spiderman image that hit the net a couple of weeks ago and when "Road Kill" eventually comes out, they don't want everyone thinking they copied their poster design from these guys' posters.

The difference between their posters and the big budget movie posters, besides the obvious differences in the quality and the amount of money spent to create them, is AMRA Pictures Ent. (APE) created theirs as concept posters back in 2004, when they first started working on the project.

They say, they're finally close to nailing down the financing and will hopefully go into production soon. As indie filmmakers, they're asking for all the support they can get. You can also check out the posters at their facebook site at

and

I hope you guys like the posters and the promo. If so please spread the word about the project. Every little bit helps. I know I will. I always root for the the little guys. How about the rest of you?
