Marvel Studios has released another photo of Chris Evans as Captain America, only this time he’s in action. The year is packed with comic book movie releases still to come and despite the disappointing Green Hornet, I must admit that I am highly anticipating this film. Check out the image below.
The year is 1942, and Steve Rogers is a scrawny lad who desperately wants to fight Nazis for his country but can’t because he’s been deemed physically unfit. His fate — and his physique — is radically transformed when he signs up for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that turns wimps into studs using drugs and assorted sci-fi hoo-ha. There’s a love interest (Major Peggy Carter, played Haley Atwell), there’s a sidekick (Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stans), and there’s the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as The Tesseract (comic fans know it better as The Cosmic Cube)
Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters July 22, 2011.
