Villains and pecs in the hi-res snaps from Captain America: The First Avenger

11.01.2010

Last week we got our first good look at CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER in the pages of EW.

Now Paramount has released the full hi-res pics from Joe Johnston's WWII origin story of Marvel's star-spangled hero, with some much better views of Cap's field uniform, baddies Red Skull and Arnim Zola (and some Hydra soldiers), and Chris Evans' impressive torso.

Click each for bigness.

Extra Tidbit: This will presumably be even more of an AVENGERS prequel than IRON MAN 2, and may be released internationally as just THE FIRST AVENGER.

Waiting for the trailer...

This movie had been killing me. I don't like that they chose Joe Johnston to direct one of the most important key films before the avengers. And especially didn't agree with chris evans as a choice for the cap himself. He's not an awful pick but there is more than likely a better one. And these pics to me look sort of cheesy. But I will wait for the trailer before I say this looks or awesome or this looks god awful!

Waiting....waiting.....waiting.....

....for the first trailer already so I can make my judgment on this. Captain America is one of the classic comic icons and I'm not sure how this film will turn our with Evans filling his shoes. I don't know. The pics look promising, but I'm going to hold off until I see a trailer.

Ugh..

Waiting to see an actual trailer or the film itself to hold out judgement. I like the pic with the shield in it, and the others look good, I just think someone a littl more muscular should get the role of a SUPER SOLDIER, and Evans just doesn't do it for me. He may prove me wrong on screen, but so far in his career he has played very, uhm, "immature" roles.. always acting like a kid with a smart mouth, not the golden boy capt america is. I dont know though, could be good, could look great and

Finally a decent looking Captain America movie not like the early 90's film maybe anyone remembers.

For those confused about why Red Skull isn't red and skull-ish in this pic, it's because Johann Schmidt actually wears a red skull mask to become the Red Skull. The mask was given to him by Hitler himself, as Hitler wanted to create a symbol of fear for Nazi enemies. Hitler does this in response to the USO's creation of their propaganda tool, Captain America. So I'm assuming this pic is pre-mask.

Red Skull?

This all looks good, but I will be disappointed if that is the extent of Hugo's costume as Red Skull. I don't know if he changes later on or not, but having a character called Red Skull and taking away the skull would be like having a character in Ghost Rider name Blackheart and making him look like Wes Bentley...oh wait.

Dear God.

I'd like to hire the Cap' to do various kinds of shirtless yardwork around my house. Oh yeah, and the rest of the pics look killer, too. Everything just looks...right.

Iron man 1 set up the avengers with the after credits ending then what about the incredible Hulk setting up the super soldier serum and the bit at the end with stark. I love the fact these films are starting to become interconnected to the avengers and i really love Iron man 2 while its not perfect there are so many sequels that are alot worse and with the addition of sam jackon and scarlett jo it just fucking rocks like a good old ac dc track. I cant wait to see capt america and thor

I never cared for Captain America but I like the pics. I don't get why people are doubting this so much and saying it is just a promo film. It seems like it your fault that you can't see this as a separate film of the Avengers. It will most likely be nothing like the Avengers since it will be placed in the 40's. I think it looks awesome so far. Looking forward more to this than another Iron Man.

I dunno, pics rarely do a movie justice, though I hope Johnston can channel more Rocketeer than Wolfman.

Looks great. Can't wait to see this movie since this IS Captain America we are talking about. That first pic with him with the American Flag shield just gets me pumped and brings a smile to my face knowing what's to come.

I'm sorry, but Captain America from the director of The Wolfman, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, and Jurassic Park III? You guys really wouldn't have wanted a better setup for a potentially way better movie?

CAN'T WAIT FOR A TRAILER FOR THIS ONE...

I have my reservations about this movie but I gotta admit the more I see from it the more interested I become. Evans as Cap is really starting to grow on me, I just hope they give Cap a real movie of his own like the first IRON MAN before going overboard with all the AVENGERS stuff.

what sense does it make to spend millions on a 90 minute commercial for a different film under the guise of an individual story. Paramount should take a look at IRON MAN 2 returns and realize how much was lost due to turning it into another Avengers promo spot. I would love to see this film but if its establishing The Avenegers, Id rather just read a book

Those pics don't really pump me up for the film. I get this whole cheesy, late 70's, early 80's vibe about the film, like it's just gonna be a really campy superhero flick. I really hope I'm wrong, because despite what people think about many of today's comic book flicks, I find them to be fairly quality films.

I expect this to be more of an Avengers story as well. In fact I expect very little to be about Cap Am and much more to be about foreshadowing to the Avengers movie.
