Marvel has released the first poster for Captain America: The First Avenger. With the Super Bowl happening this weekend, and the trailer set to air during the game, Marvel has been ramping up the publicity. A number of new images were released this week and now we get the first poster. It’s a simple yet pretty effective poster and I like it a lot. Check it out below and remember to catch the big game this weekend to see the first trailer for the film.
Starring Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan and Hayley Atwell, the film will hit theaters on July 22nd in 3D
Here’s the official plot summary:
The year is 1942, and Steve Rogers is a scrawny lad who desperately wants to fight Nazis for his country but can’t because he’s been deemed physically unfit. His fate — and his physique — is radically transformed when he signs up for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that turns wimps into studs using drugs and assorted sci-fi hoo-ha. There’s a love interest (Major Peggy Carter, played Haley Atwell), there’s a sidekick (Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stans), and there’s the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as The Tesseract (comic fans know it better as The Cosmic Cube).
