Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain American: The First Avenger Poster AustraliaFew Marvel comics are iconic as Captain America, the human embodiment of the American flag. Thanks to Paramount, not only do we have a look at the Australian trailer for the film, but an exclusive image of the Cap’s nemesis: the Red Skull! Red Skull will be played by Australia’s Hugo Weaving, who is no stranger to big-budget epics like The Matrix or the Lord of the Rings films.

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, The Avengers, tying the storylines of the recent Iron Man films, The Hulk and the forthcoming Thor together as the ultimate super-team assembles.
