The first footage from Captain America: The First Avenger has hit the net thanks to Paramount’s Super Bowl Spot. If you were debating about the movie…this spot is going to shut you up. While I was a bit nervous how they’d show the transformation from a skinny Steve Rogers to Captain America, the commercial just calmed my nerves. I love how thin Chris Evans looks at the beginning in boot camp and then how buff he is after the serum. Well done Marvel. Well done.
Captain America: The First Avenger hits July 22, 2011 and stars Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, and Stanley Tucci.
Ah, the Super Bowl. An event like no other. It’s uniqueness lies in the fact that you don’t really even have to care about the teams that are playing because there’s so much more to savor. Whether it be those silly Budweiser ads, the whacked-out, over the top halftime shows that typically star musical icons many presumed dead; or, most importantly, the movie trailers.
Among those included are Paramount’s Super 8 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. For the complete list, as well as a look at the trailers that will debut during the pre-game festivities, hit the jump.
