Captain America Fights The Nazi Forces In The New Theatrical Movie

Chris Evans And Hayley Atwell star in the thrilling trailer of Captain America

Chris Evans moves on from the Fantastic Four into a pair of much bigger boots than the flame-retardant ones he wore in his role as the Human Torch. In Captain America : The First Avenger, Evans plays the scrawny Steve Rogers, whose determination to fight for his country leads him to Col. Chester Phillips (played by Tommy Lee Jones). In turn, Col. Phillips' plan to create perfect soldiers leads to Rogers becoming a full-fledged superhero.

The full theatrical trailer is a thrilling first detailed look at the movie, coming out in July 2011. Evans stands out as the skinny but brave Steve Rogers, and English actress Hayley Atwell as the no nonsense soldier Peggy Carter, who seems impressed (to say the least) at Rogers' transformation.

One of the most impressive parts of the trailer has to be the costume choices and visual direction. Set during the 1940's, the costumes reflect that time period perfectly. Rogers' iconic costume - that red, white, and blue shield included - are well-featured in the trailer. Through the trailer, the audience gets to see the transformation that Rogers makes, with the help of a secret military project, from a puny man into the muscled hero. When Rogers asks why he was chosen for this, a scientist explains, "because a weak man knows the value of strength." When Rogers steps out of the transformation case and finally dons his costume, the war is on.

The plot follows Captain America and his fight against Nazi forces, helped by American and English soldiers like Peggy Carter. In all, the trailer is promising and the movie looks like it will be a good summer blockbuster. While it may not reach the same heights as the Iron Man or Spiderman franchises, The First Avenger is the first installment of what will hopefully be a refreshing new set of comic book movies. The Avengers, due out in 2012, will also star Evans in his role as Captain America , joined by Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
