Awesome Retro Poster Made for 'Captain America: The First Avenger'
We've already got Marvel's Thor out of the way, next week is DC's Green Lantern, but coming up after that is one more big Marvel movie - Captain America: The First Avenger. The Hero Complex Film Fest is this weekend and today they're showing Marvel's Iron Man 1 and 2, with Jon Favreau as the guest. We've heard a new Captain America trailer is debuting there, but to compliment that, Hero Complex online wrote about their contest to win this retro poster - which was made by artist Paolo Rivera as a cast and crew gift only. Damn! It's a totally frickin' awesome old school poster and it only makes me more excited to see this!
After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers for a new top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero devoted to defending American ideals.
Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger is directed by Joe Johnston, who previously directed Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo and The Wolf Man. The screenplay was written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (writers of Life & Death of Peter Sellers, You Kill Me and all three Chronicles of Narnia movies, from Lion, Witch, Wardrobe to Dawn Treader) and also Joss Whedon. Paramount is bringing Captain America to theaters starting on July 22nd this summer.
