Three New Character Posters for 'Captain America: The First Avenger'
Avenge! We haven't seen any new posters since that very first Avenge poster earlier this year for Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger, but finally a brand new set of international character posters have popped up on Cine Marcado from Brazil. Featured in the set are posters for Chris Evans as Captain America, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull. To be honest, these posters are a bit plain and a bit cheesy, I feel like I'd find them on sale at Wal-Mart in the kids section the week of release. Still cool to see something new with a few months left until this Marvel movie hits theaters.
Check out the three character posters below, click on any for bigger versions thanks to CineMarcado.com.br.
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.

Boy these are a little...what's the word?? Uninspiring? "like I'd find them on sale at Wal-Mart in the kids section" well said Alex. I'd go one step further, they're like trading cards from an 8 year old's Captain America themed Birthday:P

These are just boring. I'm really surprised they paid someone to make these. And that they released them as official promo posters. Can't wait to see some good ones!

Those first two almost look like they photoshopped the costumes onto them.
Jordan Scott on Jun 1, 2011
Whatever. The posters can suck all they want-- as long as the film, itself, delivers.

FUCK Hugo Weaving, he does ONE good movie which you and I saw multiple times in middle school, and now he is the bad guy in everything. Or Elrond. Who would make him Elrond? But he does have a sweet belt buckle...

Hollywoods recent Comic Book revival has produced some inspired adaptations, Xmen, Iron Man... even Thor was not too shabby. Meanwhile Shyamalan takes comicbooks to new "Unbreakable" Heights. But this Captain America shows no sign of making the rank. Nothing looks inspired. One of my childhood favorites seems not to deserve anything more than its simplistic original intent as pulp patriotic propaganda. What happened to Steranko's dying god? (...which made Caps' Hermes wings prescient) What happened to the mature noir vision of "The Great Gold Steal?" The first competent and respectable Comic crossover that I know. Last week I saw X-men clips intercut into promos for Army recruitment trailers. Is no one paying any attention?
Flinch on Jun 1, 2011
Were you paying attention? X-Men, Hulk, etc. have been so anti-military I feel uncomfortable watching them in the presence of my friends in the service. The patriotic propagandists have already come out in force denouncing the films because of statements from the director about Cap not being a "flag-waver." Your point might carry some more force if you correctly and consistently used capitalization and punctuation. These posters don't look promising, though. These look worse than some fan-made posters I've seen.

Eh...yeah, these are pretty cheesy posters...Buuuuuuut comic movies ARE marketed towards kids so that's kind of fair. I'm an adult. I enjoy comic books and comic book films. There's nothing wrong with that. But are the movie FOR guys like me? Not really. I can forgive hokey advertising if the movie is still good.

I still think Chris Evans looks too 'pre-Super-Soldier-serum' as Captain America.

Are they serious? These look like fan made posters. They really need to hire better art directors for these campaigns.
Giant Robot on Jun 2, 2011
Do we like this?
Brad B on Jun 2, 2011
Im pretty sure he looks more buff than that poster
