Marvel.com has released a whole slew of images from their forthcoming comic-book adaptation Captain America: The First Avenger. Some of these have appeared before, but others are brand new and offer a tantalising glimpse at what is sure to be one of the movies of the summer.
Set in the midst of World War II the film follows Steve Rogers, a young man whose physical weaknesses deem him unfit to enlist in the U.S. Army. He instead volunteers to be part of Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that genetically alters his body and turns him into a super-soldier dubbed Captain America.With the help of trusty side-kick Bucky Barnes he is soon stomping Nazis and facing off against Hitler’s head of advanced weaponry, the Red Skull.
Chris Evans stars as the all-American hero, with Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull, Sebastian Shaw as Bucky and Hayley Atwell as love interest Peggy Carter. The film also includes Tommy Lee Jones, Dominic Cooper, and Stanley Tucci. The Wolfman director Joe Johnston is behind the camera for what should be a better movie than his last one.
Captain America: The First Avenger will be released July 29th.
