With all of the hype surrounding superhero films X-Men: First Class and the US-released Green Lantern this week, Captain America: The First Avenger has managed to quietly slip a few new TV spots, with new footage no less, in under the radar.
Based on the long-running Marvel comic,Captain America: The First Avenger, the film tells the story of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), a runt of a soldier plucked from obscurity during the Second World War and made into an American super soldier by US government experiements. As the title implies, the film will also serve as a forerunner to the spin-off film, Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, tying the storylines of the recent Iron Man films, The Hulk and Thor together as the ultimate super-team assembles.
Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, these clips come to us from MarvelFreshmanTV in glorious HD. Both screened yesterday in the US.
Captain America: The First Avenger will be released in Australia on 28 July 2011 by Paramount.
