First full Captain America trailer

“Your enemy is not what you expect”

captain america

The first full trailer for Captain America: First Avenger has blasted online.

Steadily setting up the mood for the comic book adap, it starts out like a heartfelt war drama about a hapless wannabe soldier – then pumps the screen full of lead.

Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers, born during the Great Depression and desperate to be a soldier despite his frail disposition.

When he is enlisted in a top secret experiment known as Operation: Rebirth, he finds himself transformed into a super-soldier called Captain America.

Check out the trailer below...

For those concerned that Joe Johnston’s Captain America was going to be anything less than spectacular, this first trailer well and truly puts those fears to bed.

From the seamless CGI of a weak, pre-serum Chris Evans right up to the spinning shield and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, it’s a fantastic introduction to the movie. We're jittery with anticipation.

Captain America: First Avenger opens 29 July.

Captain? Or grunt? What do you make of the new trailer? Drop us your reactions below...

      It looks cool, however does anyone else feel the CGI making Evans look like a weakling at the start is a bit dodgy ?

      This trailer doesn't "well and truly" put my fears to bed. Nothing could with Joe Johnstone and we'll only know how badly he's messed it up, again, when we see the full film; of course, it could be amazing.

      I was actually really liking it and looking forward to seeing it after watching the first half, but then when you see him suddenly in the Captain America outfit, i thought it all looked a bit stupid. That's the problem with Marvel, they do the whole build up thing then dump someone in a stupid suit and think that we know everything about the hero and they've done their job with the origin story.. If you didn't know it was Captain America you'd be wondering why he was suddenly wearing bright blue (for camouflage?) with wings on the side of his head

      The cgi at the beginning is technically really well done, but I do think they made him look a bit too skinny. He looks seriously anorexic.

      Well to be fair, he meant to be the product of the Great Depression, sickly, vitamin deficiency, underdeveloped muscles, rickets and so on, so the the physicality of it will be extreme. Of course there is always room for dramatic licence and it does make the transformation all the more dramatic! Remember it is a comic book movie, so it's wearing it's heart on it's sleeve to be fair.

      Chris - it's a trailer FFS. I'm sure when it comes to the full feature itself, they will have fleshed out the origin story and let the audience in on the whole shebang.

      I can enjoy a 'dumb' film as well as a thoughtful film, I'm not a person who 'thinks too much' but wish I was. Thinking too much or too little, has no bearing on how good a film is. I think the problem we really have, is that great scripts can't get produced, because the majority of audiences are deemed to be of the variety, that won't 'get it'. Basically, audiences don't think enough, never mind too much.

      I am still pumped for this and Thor, definitely looks ten times better than The Green Lantern.

      Have to agree with@ChrisWootton on this. The build up looks like a quite interesting film, but then seems to go into your bog-standard comic book caper. Obviously from a trailer you can't tell the order peace, but with this one you pretty much can. So from the look of it there might be a half decent film here. Still think Chris Evans is bad casting though.
