While we’ve seen a few bits and pieces of Captain America: The First Avenger including some sneak peak shots of Chris Evans as the titular character but now the official teaser poster has been released. Quite a gritty image, it conjures up a darker tone for the film – a rarity in Marvel films. I never doubted Chris Evans’ ability to play the role of Steve Rogers but this is the first image where he has embodied The Captain. There is something exceptional about this poster that gets me excited for the film, yet after Joe Johnston’s The Wolfman that enthusiasm will be kept in check. Have a look at this terrific poster below!

After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America’s ideals.
Captain America: The First Avenger is directed by Joe Johnston (The Wolfman) and based on a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (The Chronicles of Narnia series). The film takes place during World War II and features Captain America’s encounters with scientist Arnim Zola (Toby Jones) and the evil Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).
