It was badass! Johnston seems to have done the impossible! Evans fits the suit perfectly and it was awesome seeing him as a skinny grunt, before donning the Shield, Can't wait!

OMG! love it!!! hes so skinny, then BAM!

TomCruise on Feb 7, 2011


Christian Bale as the pre Cap America soldier is a bold choice.

crangy on Feb 7, 2011


is that Neal McDonough in the bowler cap brandishing the shotgun? Dum Dum Dugan!

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


I thought the same thing. That's Dum Dum Dugan! That should mean that Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos should be in the film, please, please, please.

Oldschool fan on Feb 7, 2011


fingers crossed!

Looks like they CG'd him to look super skinny. I'm excited. Does indeed look better than Thor for me

Chris on Feb 7, 2011


Can't wait for the screencaps (no pun intended)

Jaf on Feb 7, 2011


Pretty cool. Only reason I watched Super Bowl was for this! Don't care for either team.

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


Red Skull whimpey womples. My tinsey winsey sminsers are covered in ploppys. It's great to see Captain tinsers, turn into Captain Mompsey. Also Captain Americinsy's shiald looks famblompy dompey. Gun plingers, defended by Cuppy Roo Roo's. Stinky stoo stars all round for the miley moo-mars.

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


looked ok , didn't knock my socks off though , i hope this movie ends up bein good , Nazi's and Red skull as bad guys , how can u mess it up. would like to see just a hint more ..the teaser was really short.

ChrisC5g on Feb 7, 2011


Just what I was about to say :)) It isn't that "awesome" but it's early to say.

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


Nice, but the writers of all three narnia movies are on this? I hope this is their A game then, and they just pooped out the narnia ones. Otherwise I hope Joss Whedon has a significant impact on it. Also The WolfMan, previously? oh well, hopefully this'll turn out well, I mean Marvel's backing it, so it's got a 50 50 chance in my mind. I mean Iron Man vs. Wolverine. So my guess is Thor's gonna suck, and Captain America will be the good one, but who knows.

John I.G. on Feb 7, 2011


Johnson inherited Wolfman while it was in shambles and did the best he could to salvage what remained. Have to agree on the writers and whenever Marvel is involved (film wise), its always a concern. I'll eat my words on Evans, he looked good as Cap. Trailer didn't over show, I'm interested now.

Quazzimotto on Feb 7, 2011


agreed, Wolfman was dead in the water.

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


The guy directed The Rocketeer which was great so I'm positive!

El_MUERkO on Feb 7, 2011


yeah but Hayley Atwel looked like a replacement Claire Danes in the trailer... while the Rocketeer had Jennifer Connelly (in her prime)... wait what are talking about again? Oh well, I didn't pay attention to the Rocketeer anyway... mmm... Connelly...

Anonymous on Feb 8, 2011


I'm glad this isn't all flashy and cartoony in the color department. The costumes in general and Captain America's in particular look fantastic. I hate using the chewed up phrase of "dark and gritty" but it -does- look gritty and I love it. Now I don't wanna see any more footage or pictures until the movie releases.

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


Agreed to no more footage until release

grapefruit on Feb 7, 2011


yeah he came on wolfman 3 weeks before shooting not his fault he did the best with what he had

p86 on Feb 7, 2011


Lets settle people it doesnt look that great from this one little trailer lets actually see a full trailer first before we make judgements

Jalts4 on Feb 7, 2011


I'll make my own judgement, thank you. Don't tell me or anyone else to settle down. It also seems you should take your own advice as you made a judgement with "it doesn't look that great."

Frank on Feb 7, 2011


hell ya this movie looks sick!!!

Croniccris on Feb 7, 2011


The strongest part of this trailer is the girl at the end. She looks like a great actress even with a potentially cheesy like like "I think it works". Hopefully it will be good but this didn't excite me at all.

hmm on Feb 7, 2011


Holy.... shit....

Can. Not. Wait.

DwainIBe on Feb 7, 2011


I really hope Captain America never teams up with the Fantastic Four, that would be awkward.

Russell Crowebitch on Feb 7, 2011


Awkwardly awesome!!! 😛

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2011


Evans could just bring back his stunt team from Scott Pilgrim vs The World and it'll be fine.

Anonymous on Feb 8, 2011


Could be great, but those pics of Nazi future soldiers make my stomach hurt. Why couldn't they make it look real? I mean the battle scenes with him should be like Private Ryan/Band of Brothers with a little bit of WOW. I guess PG13 got them fraked up to sell sits and popcorn. Shame.

Johnny Neat on Feb 7, 2011


Yeah i don't like Rockem-Sockem-Nazis either... but it is in the Marvel Universe, where Tony Stark can build a particle accelerator in his garage, so it actually isn't the "real" world. But yes, it is a PG13 movie, AND based on a comic book aimed for teenagers, so the lack of blood, sex, and gore is justified.

Anonymous on Feb 8, 2011


Pre-Cap is.......Kenneth Parcell from 30 Rock?!?!?

Voice of Reason on Feb 7, 2011


I wanted a shield throw....just one....but still looks alright - I agree with johnny neat, you cant tell the real story with kids in mind.

Garrettgualberto on Feb 7, 2011


Well its way better than Green Lantern.

mandarin on Feb 7, 2011


^ did someone lose their marvel fanboy child?

Awtan90 on Feb 8, 2011


No, it's cuz it looks more like Green Ryan Reynolds

Anonymous on Feb 8, 2011


my favorite of the bunch

dee8 on Feb 7, 2011


I concur with the rest of you, I'm pleasantly surprised by this trailer.

John Doe on Feb 8, 2011

Redguy on Feb 8, 2011


Gay as hell!
