Gritty First Official Poster for 'Captain America: The First Avenger'

We've already seen a few sneak peeks featuring Chris Evans as Captain America: The First Avenger, but now the official teaser poster has been released for the summer comic book blockbuster, and damn is it exquisite. With the grit of Saving Private Ryan, this looks like a dark war tale. Of course Johnston says: "It will not feel like a war movie. It's funny where it needs to be and emotional where it needs to be and serious and full of action." Either way, I like the imagery and tone this poster sets for the movie, and I have a good feeling this will make up for the disappointment Johnston delivered in The Wolfman. See the poster below!

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.
