Movie Trailer: Captain America: The Avenger
With strong openings from the Iron Man and Spider Man films, the message to Hollywood has become extremely clear: Make more comic-based superhero movies. Of course, the film industry answers the call with Thor, the Green Lantern, and now one of the lamest superheroes of all time Captain America.
Unlike most of the other comic-books-turned-movies, this one sticks straight to the cell-shaded script, including a lot more of the original characters, villains, and situations of the comic itself. This, of course, means the storyline takes place in the past instead of using dialogue, gadgets and situations fit for the present.
Steve Rogers is a scrawny guy deemed physically unfit for the military. Undeterred, he joins a secret military operation called Project Rebirth and is transformed into Captain America, a super soldier who is created to help put an end to the tyranny of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis in World War II.
It would seem that this film has something for everyone: ccuracy with the original story for the comic book fans, science fiction elements for those who are into the genre and historical fiction for history buffs. What more could you ask for, right?
While Chris Evans plays the title character, be on the lookout for appearances by Tommy Lee Jones, Derek Luke, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as a cameo by Stan Lee when Captain America hits theaters July 22.
