A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well in the case of of the trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger, I think the word I’m left with is:
There’s lots of doubters about the Cap film. Maybe it’s based on director Joe Johnston. Can the director of Jurrasic Park 3 pull of a period piece about Marvel’s star-spangled hero? How about the fact that the story of Cap takes place during World War 2? Will audience’s by into it? Does Chris Evans, the former Johnny Storm, have the skills to carry this tentpole film and bring one of the past century’s most iconic figures to life?
The trailer below sure makes me hopeful. Bucky is there. So is Howard Stark (Tony’s father, doncha know). A hint of the Red Skull. And a confident looking Captain America. I love what I see in this trailer and I’m hopeful that we’ll be getting a spectacular film when The First Avenger hits theatres July 22nd.
