The full plot synopsis for Marvel’s The First Avenger: Captain America has been included in the latest issue of Production Weekly:
“Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the ‘Super-Soldier Serum’ and bombarded by ‘vita-rays.’ Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers.”
No big surprises. We already found out that the film would be set during World War II back in May. No director has been officially announced, but I’m sure they’re working on it. The First Avenger: Captain America will hit theaters on May 6th 2011, just two months before Marvel’s big screen superhero team-up The Avengers is set to hit theaters.
