On Saturday, Joe Johnston and his crew took to the streets of New York City to shoot a scene with Chris Evans and another actor for Captain America: The First Avenger. The shoot appears to be from the end or epilogue of the film — we know that Captain America climaxes with Cap being frozen, and that he’ll be thawed in the ‘current’ timeline to prepare him for The Avengers. (Which starts shooting today.) This shoot would seem to be part of the sequence that sets Cap up for inclusion in the Avengers, as you’ll see from the other participant in the scene. Spoilers — not particularly surprising ones, mind you — follow. Read More »

Update: Paramount Pictures/Marvel Entertainment have provided us with a super high resolution file of the new Red Skull photo. Hit the jump to see the image in high res!

One of the big questions about Joe Johnston‘s Captain America: The First Avenger was concerned with how Hugo Weaving would look in makeup as villain The Red Skull.

And now, in advance of the new trailer that will hit this week, we have a new image that gives the best look to date at the Red Skull. It is after the break, in much better quality. Read More »

Alan Menken has won eight Oscars, mostly for his work on such Disney classics as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Pocahontas. He’s both a composer and songwriter who is synonymous with upbeat, happy music that’s fun for the whole family.

First Teaser Poster For ‘Captain America’

This is the first poster for Captain America: The First Avenger. The costume looks good, the pose is reverent and well-chosen, and all that flying Saving Private Ryan dirt reminds us that, yeah, in some respect this is a war movie. But ‘Avenge’ as the tagline? Not what I would have guessed. ‘Avenger’ would have been weird, too, but more appropriate, perhaps. I suppose Captain America is avenging Pearl Harbor and many other Axis aggressions in the war, so it’s not a huge sticking point. What do you think?
