NEW “Captain America” Trailer
God, I miss Oscar season. After getting a glimpse of the latest Avenger movie at the Super Bowl, Paramount has now given fanboys a full trailer for “Captain America: The First Avenger.” It definitely features a lot more backstory and also offers a bit of a look at who the opposition will be. I’m sure this movie will go on to make lots and lots of money. I have friends who’ve never touched a comic book in their lives who have been waiting for this film for ten years.
Meanwhile, I just can’t get excited about this flick. I’ll see it, for sure, but there’s something about a World War II super soldier going gung ho against Nazis with a big colorful shield doesn’t seem appealing to me. It could also just be that I hate Chris Evans and have no idea why he’s made it as big as he has. Overall though, I’m really just over the whole “Avenger” clusterf*ck that’s going on right now. It’s like every single movie featuring an Avenger is no longer standing alone in his own film, but instead just revving things up for the eventual collaborative super hero super movie. All of this is just building up way too much expectations and, moreover, just too much damn hype. I’m already over the movie and it hasn’t even gone into production yet.
Anyway, enjoy the new “Captain America” trailer. Either watch the embed, below, or click the link to be taken to the better-looking Apple HD version.
