A Patriotic New Poster Arrives For Captain America: The First Avenger

Yahoo! Movies has premiered a new poster for Captain America: The First Avenger, director Joe Johnston’s hotly anticipated Marvel comic-book adaptation. A new full-length trailer is expected to debut later today.

The film, which opens on July 22, stars Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, Stanley Tucci, Richard Armitage, Natalie Dormer, Dominic Cooper, Neal McDonough and Samuel L. Jackson.

Captain America: The First Avenger will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).

    MASK!!!!

    Actors in superhero movies need to understand that they may not see their face a lot.  Deal with it.

    Because Im sure Chris Evans put this poster together himself.

    This movie is going to be friggin’ great. Has anyone seen the Hot Toys movie Cap they have coming out? It looks as good as the Iron Man and Batman Begins figures. Can’t wait for this movie. Our country could use a little pick me up and Chris Evans Cap seems to be exactly what the doctor ordered.

    I’ve seen posters with the mask, I think they’re just doing a poster without to exploit his very, very, very good looks. And why shouldn’t they?

    I hate to be “that guy”, but isn’t his head kind of turned too far?

  • Lackshmana

    I was really hoping this article was about the other poster floating around…

  • Frostone

    Nope. I can turn my head that far.

    That is one hell of a poster. If I didn’t see a credit for “Toby” Jones, I’d think it was official. Great piece of work though.

    I feel you. I mean, Thor with no helmet most of the time, Spider-Man always gets his mask burned off just enough so we know it’s Tobey, Venom peeling back so that we have to look at Topher.

    You don’t see Christian Bale taking off his mask every now and then.

    It is official: It’s the poster commissioned from Paolo Rivera for the movie’s cast and crew. (I’m not sure what you mean about “Toby,” though.)

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKN5MHOI6VUFOYCTV5REK7M7A4 Jacob

    Toby Jones is in the cast section. Half a second of research though, shows that he’s an English actor cast as Arnim Zola.

    Yes, I know all of that. I just don’t understand d0dg3r’s comment …

  • Thompson500

    The story is about Steve Rogers becoming Captain America. I can live with no mask on these posters.

  • Bret

    the Rocketeer was AWESOME, wtf are you on?
