ComingSoon.net have got a nice new set of photos that have been released from the upcoming Marvel summer blockbuster, Captain America: The First Avenger, which is due out at the end of this month, on 29th July.
They show us more of Chris Evans kitted out in his superhero costume, which I’ve really been warming to over the past few months, as well as a number of the other leads in the film and some pretty mean looking HYDRA operatives.
“Captain America: The First Avenger will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as CaptainAmerica. As CaptainAmerica,Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving.)”
The film stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Stanley Tucci, Dominic Cooper, Neal McDonough, Toby Jones, and Derek Luke. The photos aren’t incredibly revealing, and follow the same feel the rest of the ad campaign for this film, which has been just what I like; no major spoilers, but they still give you a nice taste of what to expect. The last picture is my personal pick of the bunch, simply because five of the six guys in the shot have identical weapons, and the sixth (Derek Luke) on the far right seems to have an ever so slightly more advanced one. A bit of a case of “Shotgun!” I think.
If you missed it a few days ago, we were also treated to some excerpts from the film’s score (which you can hear here), and if you’ve got a few minutes spare, I highly recommend listening to at least the first clip, which starts at the 2:34 mark, because it really does get you excited and into a Captain America mood. With only three weeks to go now, there’s really not long to wait to see what director Joe Johnston’s done with the iconic Marvel character. Without further ado, here are the new photos. As usual, click to enlarge.
