International 'Captain America' Poster Not Really All That Impressive
The last poster we featured promoting the forthcoming adventures of Captain America: The First Avenger (ironically the last Avenger to get his own feature film) was pretty fantastic. However, a new international poster has shown up that just slaps the different actors together with Red Skull (played by Hugo Weaving) ominously looking over our heroes like Chris Evans in the red, white and blue, Tommy Lee Jones and more. Really, this looks like the back of action figure packaging or something like that. Even if this poster doesn't deliver, that most recent trailer was off the charts awesome and I'm pumped anyway.
Here's the new Captain America: The First Avenger poster courtesy of Empire:
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.

Wow, what a rush-job. And will they stop doing promo shots of Cap "without" the helmet? WE GET IT, it's Chris Evans playing the lead role! lol

He's shooting the ground. LOL! This looks too cartoony.

I love it! Why are you complaining about it, really? It looks great! Especially if you compare to the crappy posters we're used to nowadays.

I think it would be better if there was an eagle flying through the scene and there was more blue and red.

Did they use the same company that designed the posters as with X-men First Class?

I think it looks badass! Chris evans is good, I dunno why so many people have been hatin on him. I'm exited for the movie, even though hes not wearing his helmet on this poster. I dont know why that bothers anyone.
