Captain America, Chris Evans return as an avenger for the modern age (TRAILER)


Captain America originally was an idea dreamed up by writer Joe Simon and artist Jack Kirby as a patriotic superhero when America entered World War II in 1941.

After the War, the character’s popularity waned and he was effectively retired. But in March 1964 the character was successfully revived by Stan Lee.

Fans got their first look at the upcoming Captain America movie in a 30 second spot during the Super Bowl. The first full-length trailer showed up this week.

According to CBS News, Captain America: The First Avenger is based on Marvel's character Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, who is found unfit for military service during World War II. He volunteers for a top-secret U.S research project that transforms him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to fighting for America's ideals.

In one scene of the trailer, MTV reports Rogers is chased into an alley and attempts to defend himself with a trashcan lid — a nod to the red-white-and-blue shield he'll soon wield as the Captain. This scene shot also gives us an idea of around when the story begins. A poster in the alley shows the date to be May 29, 1943.

Later, we see Dr. Abraham Erskine in the laboratory with the serum transforming Rogers into a superhero, as well as Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), who just so happens to be the father of Iron Man.

In addition to Captain America, you see sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Union Jack (JJ Field) and Dum Dum Dungan (Neal McDonough). Captain America will meet foes of the HYDRA army controlled by Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler's head of weapons.

According to, Captain America sacrifices himself to the Red Skull and winds up frozen in ice for almost six decades. Revived, Steve Rogers now must join forces with new heroes and become an Avenger of the modern age.

Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios mentioned his thoughts to the Sci Fi Movie Page about the planned Captain America movie: “We’re very interested in doing two things. One is having a rousing, Indiana Jones-type adventure in the beginning of the film, and also telling the equally important story of him being lost and then re-emerging in the modern era and being confronted with a very different world than existed during the War.”

The First Avenger: Captain America is slated for a July 22nd 2011 release date, while The Avengers (a teaming up of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor amongst others) has a May 4 2012 release date.
