Must Watch: Amazing Trailer for 'Captain America: The First Avenger'

March 23, 2011

Captain America: The First Avenger

We are going to win this war because we have the best men, and they will personally escort Adolf Hitler to the gates of hell! We got to see a glimpse of this trailer just the other day, but the idiot from Entertainment Tonight was talking over the entire clip. Now the first trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger has been released by ET (it's officially out now), but this time they let the trailer speak for itself. Thankfully the trailer speaks pretty loud and clear that this is one kick-ass Marvel Comics adaptation to look forward to this summer. I'm completely sold on this flick, but you can decide for yourself after seeing the trailer below!

Here's the first trailer 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.

Thats badass motherfucker!!

Michaelangelo on Mar 24, 2011

Hitler on Mar 24, 2011


because its WWII, im sure he will stop using them later on but early on he uses them cuz its war and he trying to stop you(Hitler), ima right?

AceVictor on Mar 24, 2011


oh. well i dont like that. see you in the bunker!

Hitler on Mar 24, 2011


and make sure you call Ava!

Hitler on Mar 24, 2011


ail hitler!

Michael Baldwin on Mar 24, 2011


Hell. Yeah.

DwainIBe on Mar 24, 2011


Holy smokes!!!! Wow, this totally blows away my inhibitions about this Marvel movie. My favorite part is when he picks up the trash can lid and is holding it in front of him like a "shield".....c'mon everyone knows it's theirs too! :p

Conrad Williams on Mar 24, 2011


I think it works too...BIG TIME

Moviekidmike on Mar 24, 2011


It's gonna blow....I have no hopes for this movie...

Anonymous on Mar 24, 2011


Why is it that I absolutely do not believe the thin before-version of him? Looks wrong, ey?

Felix on Mar 24, 2011


because when he says 'just give me a chance' his voice sounds nothing like it should for a man of that size, confused me to

dave on Mar 24, 2011


I agree. Like an effect from Mac's Photo Booth. Also I still don't believe in Chris Evans as Cap. Can't help but see him as Jake Wyler.

Garrettgualberto on Mar 24, 2011


what i just posted. Its the height i think. He's so short, compared to everyone. I mean, ok we get it. He was weak then he will be super strong. Maybe sometimes you dont need to go from one extreme to another and such a drastic way...really takes me out of the movie and i know i will laugh (not in a good way) when i see it....oh well.

Buzzfunk on Mar 24, 2011


Fictional worlds inhabited by comic books are never based enough in reality. Is that really your argument? You believe the super soldier serum is fine, but that the height of pre-Cap Steve just doesn't quite get it right. You're awesome.

Funkybuzz on Mar 24, 2011


That's actually looking a hell of a lot better than I thought it would be 🙂

Michael Kingscott on Mar 24, 2011


Looks really good!

Day on Mar 24, 2011


Pure win.

Mrjzn on Mar 24, 2011


This is a lot better than the other trailers. Why Chris Evans though? Ugh. Honestly I'm not expecting much. The X-Men First Class Trailer was way more epic Interestingly enough.

Guy on Mar 24, 2011


Meh. More "America saves the world" propaganda. I'd rather watch FOX News.

JamesCameron on Mar 24, 2011


You'd be surprised how often that comes up in the few CA comic stories I've read. When the Cap was a brand new character, having a symbol of the US going over there and beating the hell out of Hitler was kind of cathartic, especially if you were a kid and couldn't really cope with the magnitude of what was going on in the world. I think that's the spirit this movie's coming from. I wouldn't be surprised if they took the piss out of the whole "AMERICA! FUCK YEAH!!" blind patriotism shit in the process. I guess we won't know until the movie comes out, tho. It looks at least like it'll be a decent big dumb action movie at the worst, but that's just my opinion.

Anonymous on Mar 24, 2011


They went with a much more international cast of characters for this film than people realize, sort of demonstrating that we were "all in this together". The Howling Commandos, the guys that come in shooting with Cap in the trailer, are NOT all American. There are Brits and French as well. You can plainly see Dugan (one of the more popular commandos and a Brit) to Cap's left, he's got the iconic facial hair from the comics. So yeah, if you're dissappointed to hear someone playing an American general talking about taking out Hitler with the American super soldier that they're trying to create, then you obviously don't get that this is a Captain America movie. So to the JCameron fella, stick to whatever a smug self-righteous person usually does when this movie comes out. I plan on having a lot of fun watching a classic comic book hero come to life.

Cghata on Mar 24, 2011


You're right man. It's more nostalgia when red skull was Hitler's right hand and captain america saved the day. I think it will be okay

Gfw on Mar 24, 2011


I guess being called "Captain America" must really piss you off.

joshp on Mar 24, 2011


Captain America questions his own government more than almost any comic book character out there. Did you ever read Civil War? His speech to Peter Parker would give you chills. Captain America doesn't fight for America's government; he fights for America's ideals.

RC on Mar 27, 2011


Pure Sweet!

McWilly on Mar 24, 2011


Average at best. Amazing? huh The thin Chris Evans looks so, so, so fake, it's not even funny. They should've kept at least his height. I get it, its a comic. ok. But still...

Buzzfunk on Mar 24, 2011


The trailer isn't working for me! but i found it and it looks great!

munch75 on Mar 24, 2011


Looks good! I wanted a closeup of Red Skull though..oh well, gotta wait til the movie comes out.

jah p on Mar 24, 2011


I'm sold. Skinny Steve looks funny but I'm sure he won't be skinny for long.

Chris on Mar 24, 2011


The skinny Steve looks terrible. How hard would it have been to get the head vs torso ratio to look at least somewhat believable?

LetterJ13 on Mar 24, 2011


so. pumped.

Ghostlycurrents on Mar 24, 2011


heres a trailer in HD from Marvel if anyones interested

AceVictor on Mar 24, 2011


jupiters cack!! looks tight. peace

mochonko on Mar 24, 2011


Wow. I'm actually shocked. Joe Johnston has been a hit or miss director, but one that's always been capable of making a good movie. Looks like he may have hit the target here. But...It's still just a trailer. Bring on the movie!

This looks far better than I expected it to. I'll catch a matinee.

Fook yeah! Love the glitch mob song at the end! 😀

Yamahacasey on Mar 24, 2011


Is it just me or did he say "Now Mr. Stark" at 1:13-1:14 I haven't read the comics so if Stark was involved my bad

Anonymous on Mar 24, 2011


No your fine; they have set it up in IronMan 2 that his father had a hand in it.

Rv on Mar 24, 2011


O ok awesome guess i missed that part Thanks

Anonymous on Mar 24, 2011


I had to go back a second time to catch that. Nice find. Young lookin' "Daddy" Stark there. I guess little Tony is floating around in the sack still just waitin' to take that mayo ride. I just made myself ill.

Modern American Man on Mar 24, 2011


Yeah, in Iron Man 2, when Tony is making his new power core, he uses Capt. America's shield to level out the tubes on his giant lazer.

JL on Mar 24, 2011


They did Howard Stark was involved in the Super Soldier Program and S.H.I.E.L.D

Airgreaves on Mar 24, 2011


Looks really cool with a small element of cheesy.

Ryderup on Mar 24, 2011


This looks bad. Especially the ridiculously tiny body pasted on Evans head.

Shige on Mar 24, 2011


Tommy Lee Jones could talk me into any gov't experiment. He makes everything seem so simple and straight forward.

Chris O. on Mar 24, 2011


I loved it, and for any of those who say this looks terrible; you need to check out Captain America from 1990, which was so bad it was never officially released. I think this is going to be full of insane awesomness and will setup the Avengers movie very well!

Mayhem on Mar 24, 2011



Benjisbarmusic on Mar 24, 2011


I have said it before and I will say it again Marvel is a doing great job. Can you imagine Fox or Sony had the rights to cap or thor. The trailer looks awesome. Can't wait.

grapefruit on Mar 24, 2011


Yes,I can imagine them doing it sooner or the meantime Marvel is way ahead! Another Smash they have Longlive MARVEL!!!

Gh on Mar 24, 2011


The cgi on skinny Evans is really good! LMAO on "Give me a chance" They got the war era pretty tightly!

Gh on Mar 24, 2011


I felt a nice Indiana Jones kind of feel when watching the trailer. Hopefully it will stay away from cheese and be charming instead.

Ryderup on Mar 24, 2011


crap, amazing crap

Othoniflat on Mar 24, 2011


everyone saying this is bad needs to chill, we knew going in that they had to use cg to get him looking scrawny pre-s.s.p., and the problem, i think, you are having is everyone has a idea what Chris Evans looks like, so seeing him drastically altered is throwing you off, its a funhouse mirror effect, you know what your seeing is not real so your brain can't accept it, you need to realise it's a movie and just suspend your disbelief, and if you can't do that for a comic book then maybe you should stay away from movies using c.g.i, because everything will look fake to you, just my opinion

big mike 23 on Mar 24, 2011


I have a feeling this is gonna be shit. Reason - It looks as though the character of Cap is not the honest, down to Earth, high level moral values, never dare to swear, always treat ladies with respect sorta character he's meant to be. It looks like it's a modern day spin on Captain America so that people can relate better. But if this is what they've done, they've ruined the essence of what makes Captain America the great hero he is...

True Marvel Fan on Mar 24, 2011


you gotta be kidding me lol

true movie fan on Mar 25, 2011


Hahaha scrawny Chris Evans looked ridiculous. Everything else looked pretty good. I'll definitely watch this one.

Liyan on Mar 24, 2011


It all seems like good fun to me, but over the years we've all been burned by amazing trailers that turn out to be crappy movies. Personally I'm more of a Thor guy, but I've yet to see a Marvel movie that wasn't worth the price of admission (yea even IM2).

Anonymous on Mar 24, 2011


Cap has always been one of my favorite Marvel hero's and i cant wait for the movie. But i do agree with some of the negative posts on here. Oh well ill just have to wait and see!

Anonymous on Mar 24, 2011


Whoa,.....I need a new pair of pants. WOW that looks EPIC. Can't wait, hope too much wasn't given away in the trailer.

!5AAK on Mar 24, 2011


Looks cool.

M.K. Nielsen on Mar 24, 2011


Captain America!!!!!!!!! JJ, Looks like you might have pulled it off, just gotta wait till the actual movie comes out.

Rooneyman on Mar 24, 2011


Funny how you pretentious cunts were bashing this movie in earlier postings, and now several bits of footage have been released the tables have turned. I hate this site..

Asdsa on Mar 25, 2011


Then stop coming on it.

Cb on Mar 25, 2011


Should be interesting...especially when they get to the part when he is FROZEN for years after WWII. That is the set up for the "Avengers" movie.

weezy1 on Mar 25, 2011


I know nothing at all about Captain America, and therefore have no credibility to make any judgement about it's faithfulness to the source material. However, I really enjoyed this trailer because it looked like the exact opposite of the Thor trailer, it looked good! I hope that Chris Evans is not his normal smirky self. The only times I've read anything about Cap was in Marvel 1602 and a little in Civil War. He did not seem like the Johnny Storm smirker type that Evans normally plays. I don't care how big he is, because muscles don't make an actor good.

SNEARS on Mar 25, 2011

Jericho on Mar 29, 2011


Cap doesn't shoot guns, and that wasn't bucky

Marco on Mar 29, 2011


Love it!

James on Apr 4, 2011


this movie doesnt plan to do any good thats why it comes after green lantern xmen first class and thor but really captain america is the greatest of all superheroes STOP MESSING UP MARVEL

Staticdb1 on Apr 5, 2011


Um, so Tony Stark didn't create his shield in 2010? How is this going to tie in with the Avengers? How old will the Cap be in 2012? Or are they going to show how the job was handed down over the years?
