It’s been almost a month since we saw the Super Bowl TV spot for Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of the first theatrical trailer, which will give us more footage and more of an idea of what’s going on. Over on SuperHeroHype via Cinemablend, they got a scoop from a reader (RealIrOnMaN) who caught a sneak peek of the first trailer at the Russian Movie Expo and he wrote an awesome description of what it entails. Check it out…
- Steve (Pre Super-Soldier Serum) gets beaten by someone on the streets. Takes a part of garbage can as his shield. The guy, that beat Steve: “You just don’t know when to give up, do you?” Steve (looking all angry at this guy): “I can do this all day!” Sadly, Steve takes another beating from the guy.
- Steve: “Why me?” (chamber, full of scientists, generals. Steve gets inside the vita-rays capsule) Abraham: “Because alignment, because of value, of strength, because of value of power.” Steve gets injected by something, saying: “That wasn’t so bad.” Someone replies to Steve: “That was penicillin.”
- First look at Howard, looking real smart & classy. Chester Phillips: “We are going to win this war because we have the best man!” Abraham to Howard: “Now, Mr. Stark!” Chester Phillips: “They will personally deliver (or something, I don’t remember) Hitler to the gates of hell!” * Really good & long view of Steve’s painful transformation into Super-Soldier. Lights out! *Some army music plays* Everyone is shocked to see the brand new Steve Rogers. Howard Stark & Abraham Erskine are amazed.
- Steve & the Howling Commandos are inside some factory, with Schmidt’s goons around. Johann takes his human mask off & we get to see first full & clear shot of Red Skull’s face, that now looks even more violently red, than it was in the tv-spot. Cut to Howling Commandos wrecking shit and kicking butt, big explosions (some of them we’ve seen in the tv-spot), flying spaceship (here it looks incomplete, more CGI-ish), HYDRA firemen making a fire circle around Cap & HYDRA men in the forest near some car.
Early in the movie they seem to allude to Captain America’s shield before he gets the real deal. That thing’s the hardest working accessory in the Marvel universe. It popped up in both Iron Mans, and it will probably make an appearance in Thor somewhere, who knows?! As for everything else, we’re mostly excited about seeing Red Skull in all of his beaming glory.
Howard Stark comes in a close second to Red Skull, but that’s only because we want to see if there’s any Tony in him. Like father like son.
Captain America: The First Avenger is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22, 2011.
What do you think of the trailer description from Captain America? Are you excited?
