Chester Phillips, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter and Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Dugan — all under the watchful eyes of Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull.
Directed by Joe Johston, the film also stars Toby Jones, Stanley Tucci, Richard Armitage, Natalie Dormer, Dominic Cooper 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).
Captain America: The First Avenger opens July 22 in the United States and July 29 in the United Kingdom.
