Sorry, we don’t have the full The Avengers teaser trailer that’s after the credits of Captain America: The First Avenger just yet. What we do have, thanks to Yahoo Movies and Paramount, is a sneak peak at that tease and the promise that The Avengers footage will only be seen in theaters. So, if you don’t want to see Captain America (and you should, it’s solid) this is as good as you are going to get in official, high definition, form.
Though, to see it, you’ll have to sit through 30 seconds of MAJOR SPOILERS that happen at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. Read More »

Over the weekend I got the chance to sit down and talk with Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston. Johnston started at LucasFilm and created the final designs for iconic characters Boba Fett and Yoda. Johnston made his directorial debut with the fx heavy Honey I Shrunk The Kids.
