    is that Neal McDonough in the bowler cap brandishing the shotgun? Dum Dum Dugan!
    • Oldschool fan
      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.

    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.

      Just what I was about to say :)) It isn't that "awesome" but it's early to say.
  • John I.G.
    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.
    • Quazzimotto
      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.
      • Anonymous
        agreed, Wolfman was dead in the water.
      • The guy directed The Rocketeer which was great so I'm positive!
        • Anonymous
          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...

    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.
    • grapefruit
      Agreed to no more footage until release
  • p86
    yeah he came on wolfman 3 weeks before shooting not his fault he did the best with what he had
  • Jalts4
    Lets settle people it doesnt look that great from this one little trailer lets actually see a full trailer first before we make judgements
    • Frank
      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."
  • Croniccris
    hell ya this movie looks sick!!!
  • hmm
    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.

    Holy.... shit....

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

      Awkwardly awesome!!! 😛

        Evans could just bring back his stunt team from Scott Pilgrim vs The World and it'll be fine.
  • 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.
    • Anonymous
      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.
  • Voice of Reason
    Pre-Cap is.......Kenneth Parcell from 30 Rock?!?!?
  • Garrettgualberto
    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.
  • mandarin
    Well its way better than Green Lantern.
