'The Muppets' Take Aim at 'Captain America' with Great New Poster

Before the real trailer for The Muppets was released, everyone's favorite puppets parodied the DC Comics superhero Green Lantern with a fake trailer for the forthcoming November return of Jim Henson's most iconic characters. Now the Disney production has shifted the fun to Marvel with this awesome new poster featuring Sam the Eagle suited up as Captain America, just in time for this weekend's release of Captain America: The First Avenger (make sure you see it, because the film is absolutely fantastic). Honestly, all of the marketing for The Muppets has been just spectacular, and this poster is no exception. See it below!

Here's the great poster for The Muppets with Sam the Eagle as Captain America:

The Muppets - Captain America Poster

James Bobin ("Flight of the Conchords") is at the helm of this new Muppets movie, which follows Walter and Gary (Segel), two die-hard Muppet fans and roommates who must save Muppet Theater by reuniting Kermit, Piggy, and the entire troupe to stage an "old-fashioned extravaganza." The cast is full of all kinds of celebrity cameos and other great random appearances, including Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin and Billy Crystal. Shooting is already finished, and Disney will be bringing The Muppets to theaters starting November 23rd this Thanksgiving. Doesn't this look great?

Saves them thinking of something original, I guess. Jim Henson would think of something...
