Watch: A Couple of Awesome TV Spots for Marvel's 'Captain America'

June 1, 2011

Captain America TV Spots

"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!

Watch the first new TV spot for Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger:

Watch the second new TV spot for Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger:

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.

Is Steve Rogers supposed to be a hobbit?

Bltzie on Jun 2, 2011


your an idiot

Splinter on Jun 2, 2011


You're a rat

Bltzie on Jun 2, 2011


No, hes right. Call me an idiot as well, but the whole "oh hes a sickly young dude, so so small" is so over done and it looks completely fake. It would've been much better to leave him at least average height. It makes the entire movie look stupid....

Buzzfunk on Jun 2, 2011


Exactly! THANK YOU!

Bltzie on Jun 2, 2011


Comment removed. 😉

Manuel on Jun 2, 2011


Sorry Buzzfunk, but they are simply following the comic, where Steve Rogers WAS this "sickly young dude, so small." You want to scream bloody murder at the filmmakers for simply following a comic with its origins in the 1940s?

Anonymous on Jun 2, 2011


Scopedog is correct. I tip my hat to those who decided to follow the comic. I'm sure there will be plenty of parts where the comic isn't followed, but if Steve was average height the military would have sucked him up for front line action.

Hopefully this does well in the box office, the character is among the best in the Marvel universe.

Rettiwt on Jun 2, 2011


i guess ill see it...might be good

Jericho on Jun 2, 2011


Still not sold on the suit but fugg it, I'm in.

Big Boss on Jun 2, 2011


Looks pretty sweet. I think Hayley Atwell looks gorgeous in that era of clothing and hair.

Chris A. on Jun 2, 2011


Popcorn. Soda pop. Explosions. Hot women. Someone getting their ass kicked. I'm in.

Quanah on Jun 2, 2011


This looks like a tv movie. 

Giant Robot on Jun 2, 2011


I really like the quality of these movies leading up to the Avengers. I enjoyed iron man, the hulk, thor and this looks good as well. I cant wait for the Avengers.

john s on Jun 2, 2011


I hope the movie's going to be good. I'd surely watch it. Looks pretty cool.

Nicole Smith on Jun 2, 2011


I didnt know Capt. American was made by steroids, sorta changes the whole image of him 🙂

David Banner on Jun 2, 2011


I reckon this will be funny and good too, the little tiny original Steve Rogers is a bit bizarre, but I reckon I can deal with that. At least Captain America wasn't made in Vietnam war times, because instead he'd just be on LSD shooting his own comrades.

Crapola on Jun 2, 2011


Well, it is a bit weird to see a frail, weak and small Steve Rogers...but that's just staying true to the original comic. And besides, it's Joe Johnston directing this film...why have so many forgotten that he also directed THE ROCKETEER, one of the best comic book-based films ever made?

Anonymous on Jun 2, 2011


I think the Rocketeer ruled too, I think I watched it at the right age. Everything worked, the retro 50's style was decent. I think the guy looks a little bizarre but I'm definitely not crying about it, the sets and the clothes look super good, which is a good start as sometimes in superhero films they get silly.

Crapola on Jun 2, 2011


True dat!

Hey Scopedog, is that an old Gundam robot in your Avatar? At first I thought it was Leonardo from the turtles.

Crapola on Jun 3, 2011


Heroes are made in America? That's a weird thing to say.

M.K. Nielsen on Jun 2, 2011


M.K. Neilsen shut your dumb pie hole

Crapola on Jun 2, 2011


Whoa now, watch your temper Crapola! 🙂

Alex Billington on Jun 2, 2011


That wasn't me, I've been cloned! I was actually going to point out how horrible that line was.

Crapola on Jun 2, 2011


Sadly Crapola, it happened to me too.  Oh, and in regards to your question about the avatar...it's not a Gundam, but the main mecha from the classic anime VOTOMS, which is called...the Scopedog. It does have something in common with the mobile suits from GUNDAM--they were both designed by the same guy, Kunio Okawara.  (But I gotta admit...you are right, it would look like Leonardo from a quick glance...)

Anonymous on Jun 4, 2011


Hey Scopedog, I'm going to look that anime up. Also Googled the creator and am going to have a good look at some of his artwork, I see he had designs of RX-81LA, that's a favourite. Cheers for getting back man!

Crapola on Jun 4, 2011


Here's another weird thing to say: Poopy is a good after dinner mint. Or, I like to punch farts. Look everyone! We're all making observations now! JK 😉

Quanah on Jun 3, 2011


the perfect hero for the slacker generation...take some drugs, put him in a box and ...PRESTO!!!...Instant Super Hero...no work involved...think I'll take a pass on this one...

Anonymous on Jun 2, 2011


LOL!!I never thought of it that way! I'm still going to see this though...I wonder what the suprise might be at the end of the movie after the credits roll....

jah p on Jun 2, 2011


This looks cool in a, "Raiders of the Lost Ark", kinda way! "Thor", ROCKED and here's hoping this flick will ROCK too!! I'm there opening night!!

Spider on Jun 2, 2011


He doesn't have an American accent??? Hahahahahaha

RobNZ on Jun 2, 2011


yay its frisbe man

Before the super soldier experiment, he looks like one of the 50%-sized characters at the end of Innerspace.

Anonymous on Jun 3, 2011


I have wanted to see this made since I was 10!  As a child I loved the corny 1990 Captain America.  I can't wait to see this character finally given a serious treatment!
