14 January 2011

It's been a day of first looks, we got the first glipse of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man in the highly anticipated reboot, and now Entertainment Weekly have publish a first look at Chris Evans donning the iconic suit of Captain America.

Complete with the iconic sheild, the suit looks fairly close to that of its comic counterpart. It'll be a case of some liking it while others won't, I for one like it. However, the proof of will be in the trailer when it finally hits.

Captain America: The First Avenger will actually be on UK screens on July 29 this year and is based on the Marvel Comics character from World War II. A brave, yet mild-mannered young soldier named Steve Rogers, volunteers to undergo a series of experiments for a US army Super Soldier program. The military succeeds in transforming him into a human weapon, but quickly decide that their Super Soldier is far too expensive a creation to risk in combat. So, they decide to put him to use as an army celebrity and parade him across Europe to boost morale by performing in USO shows for American troops. He is even given a costume that bear the colors of Old Glory for the stage. Then, when a Nazi plot reveals itself Rogers must rise up and and become the First Avenger, in order to save his country. Steve Rogers becomes Captain America and he earns his way into the hearts and souls of every American, bringing hope and justice to a war-weary nation. Later, during a mission to Germany to stop his archenemy - The Red Skull, from launching rockets at the allies, Captain America sacrifices himself 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.

The Joe Johnston adaptation also stars Hugo Weaving as the villainous Red Skull and co stars Sebastian Stan, Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, Toby Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Neal McDonough and Stanley Tucci.
