Over the weekend, two high resolution photos debuted online from the upcoming Marvel film, Captain America: The First Avenger. Last week, Marvel released promo images from their other tentpoles, Spider-Man and Thor, so we not surprised that Captain America has gotten thrown into the mix. Check out Chris Evans in action below…
Captain America has always been one of the campier superheros in Marvel lore. His costume says it all. It’s interesting that both The First Avenger and Thor will be released back to back considering their characters have the most superhuman elements out of The Avengers team. They’re a perfect pair.
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.
Captain America is scheduled to open in theaters on July 22, 2011.
