July’s Captain America film starring Chris Evans just got its first poster. Looks gritty.

Also, the first photo of Bucky was released yesterday, to massive disinterest.

    I want to see the top of his HEAD!

  2. I just don’t like the volume of images that’s come out without a mask. Is he Steve Rogers or Captain America? A super hero in a comic with a mask should be a super hero in a movie with a mask. Not an actor trying to show his face every 5 seconds. His name is in the credits and he gets some face air time, we get it… that’s never enough though. Look at stupid Tobey playing Spiderman. I’d have stapled the mask on his head and made him leave it alone.

    Deal with it, actors don’t like being behind masks for 2.5 hours. Plus Cap’s ID is often publicly known, PLUS in the current comics he doesn’t even wear a mask.

  4. For what it’s worth, that poster is a riff on the cover of Captain America #4 (April 2005) by Steve Epting:

    So, hey, nifty source material.

  6. This poster is not very good.

    I’ll take the cover to BICENTENNIAL BATTLES any day….

  7. LobsterDragon: “Deal with it …”

    Such a compelling arguement.

    Most super-hero movies don’t call for the actors to wear a mask for 2.5 hours. Most fans don’t call for it either.

  8. I have far less interest in Cap having his face covered than I would other characters. Much more distressing is the fact that when Chris Evans tries to look “serious” he can’t help looking like Lucas Lee. I agree with Alex Ross that they should have cast someone like John Hamm. You know, an actor that looks more um…Adult? Rugged? Talented?

    Release date during Comic-Con.

    I agree with Joe Harris… where’s the mask??? This is shades of Judge Dredd. Is this another case of a lame ass movie like Spider-Man where he has the mask torn/pulled off so we could see Tobey’s $20 Million dollar face? It was more annoying in Spider-Man 3 as he kept taking it off. Secret identity is priority one and always was, even to Cap in the best runs of his book.

    Oh, I forgot. We can’t have it be too cartoony… even though it is based on a COMIC BOOK CHARACTER. Babymen want realism!

  11. Lobster says:

    “Secret identity is priority one and always was, even to Cap in the best runs of his book.”

    Hasn’t Cap’s ID been public since like, 2002? And hasn’t the best Cap run been Brubaker’s, which would fall in that period?

  12. Cap’s identity is public in the comics, perhaps … but the movie isn’t about the current comic storyline.

    Somebody who is getting completely bent out of shape over superhero costumes is questioning the maturity of others. I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m highly amused. XD

    I rather wish Marvel would sell Captain America first and not try to pre-sell Avengers already. Geez. What an awful tagline.

  15. I have almost every single issue of the original run of Cap. I love Cap. I just don’t see how he translates to the screen. He’s just such a cheesy character. A cheesy character whom I LOVE. When he “died” and Wolvie got all choked up, I genuinely got choked up, too.

    But… I dunno. I feel like the movie going audience is just so cynical. I have trouble buying it.

    I mean, I’ll be there opening night and provided it’s better than WOLVERINE ORIGINS, I’ll probably buy the DVD, but I’m nervous.

Speak Your Mind
