"This is why you were chosen." Here's something to make up for those bland character posters from this morning. Despite being well into the summer, we haven't seen any actual 30-second TV spots for Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger besides the original Super Bowl spot and the trailer, but two of them have just popped up online on TheMovieBox and they're both pretty awesome. There's some small glimpses of action we haven't seen yet, like a train top sequence and a huge explosion. This is looking better the more we see, I'm pumped. Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. Enjoy!

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.
