Chris Evans Goes From Super Wimp To Superhero In ‘Captain America’ First Look Super Bowl Trailer

Chris Evans Goes From Super Wimp To Superhero In 'Captain America' First Look Super Bowl Trailer

Heh. OK, with the help of, funny looking digital effects (see the image above), Chris Evans goes from 90lb weakling to beefcakey superhero in this first look Super Bowl spot of Marvel‘s “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

Arriving on July 22, 2011 the picture, directed by Joe Johnston of “The Wolf Man” and “Jumanji” fame, stars Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, and Stanley Tucci among a few others. Trailer below, it looks a little silly, but hey, it’s hard to judge from :30 seconds and the humor does work. This teaser does give us a first look peek at the Red Skull character that Weaving eventually becomes. That image below the jump too.

You’ve got to be fucking kidding me with that skinny Evans. If Benjamin Button proved anything, it’s that this sort of thing can be done and done well. I’m hoping this really unfinished stuff they threw into the ad. Not that I’d see it anyway, but yeesh.


In my opinion, this first footage only proves what I’ve been saying for awhile now, and that is that Captain America will be loads better than Thor and Green Lantern. I feel more of an Iron Man 1 vibe with this teaser.
