If you love comic book movies this summer will be like heaven for you. Already we have Thor in the cinema, this weekend X-Men:First Class, 2 weeks its Green Lantern and on July 29th (USA 22nd) CAPTAIN AMERICA:FIRST AVENGER will arrive! When it comes to characters of true patriotism characters like Captain America are right up that alley, characters of war propaganda of days gone by and in today’s world where the world is threatened by global terrorism they do become meaningful again though more of nostalgia. Captain America First Avenger is finally getting it’s proper cinematic treatment, a movie to properly wipe away the memories of awful camp 1980’s version who played Steve Rodgers then I cannot remember dont really care. The Joe Johnston movie does look alot grittier Ive still got mixed reservations on the movie probably because the Cap was never my favourite character though I will enjoy this alot better than Green Lantern and if all the footage we’ve seen so far isn’t all the movies action this movie will do well at the box office.
The first 3 official tv spots from the movie have arrived online all contain new snippets of footage and check them out below:
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.
Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
