Marvel is finally launching its original flagship hero as "Captain America: The First Avenger" lunges its way into a multiplex near you. With "The Rocketeer" director Joe Johnston at the helm, we can expect a nostalgic, old-fashioned hero's journey involving cutting-edge modern stunts and special effects.
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), a weakling with a big heart who just wants to do his bit to help a WWII-era America teach Hitler some manners, goes from zero to ripped with the help of Dr. Erskine's (Stanley Tucci) Super Soldier Serum.

You've watched two "Hulk" and two "Iron Man" movies, and just saw "Thor" earlier this year; now it's time to watch Chris Evans fill out his costume in "Captain America: The First Avenger" before all four heroes team up in the superhero smackdown "The Avengers" next year.
"Captain America" tells the story of Steve Rogers (Evans), a scrappy but spirited 98-pound weakling who repeatedly tries to enlist in the military during World War II. He is finally accepted into an experimental program that transforms him into a super soldier known as Captain America. Cap wages war against the Nazis' occult science division, HYDRA, which is led by the evil Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).
Unlike, say, the recent CGI-heavy "Green Lantern," "Captain America" is a different kind of superhero movie, focusing on the early days of the Marvel universe. Read on to find out what separates this Avenger from his fellow cinematic superheroes. Get More »
Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell look simply stunning in "Captain America: The First Avenger," but why wait until this Friday to see them shine?
To help ease the anticipation until the movie hits theaters, we've created a gallery with all the official images from the movie so far.

Hail to the captain, indeed!
Three cheers for the Red, White and Blue! Several stars made up the... well, stars of the "Flag Carpet" at the Los Angeles premiere of "Captain America: The First Avenger," held at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard.
The Captain himself, Chris Evans, was in attendance, as well as several of his co-stars, including Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan and Derek Luke. A few Marvel-ous alums also made appearances, including Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson.
Salute our gallery of cinematic patriotism. "Captain America: The First Avenger" opens July 22.
"Captain America: The First Avenger" takes place way back during the WWII era, so you can bet your baseball bat making it look believable takes a lot of work. One of the most important things in recreating any past time period? The vehicles.
After working on "TRON: Legacy," vehicle designer Daniel Simon came back from the future, so to speak, to create cars for "America."
Simon created a whole fleet of vehicles for the Hydra baddies that fit right in to the time period while still appearing advanced. He told NextMovie all about designing vehicles for one of summer's most anticipated movies. Get More »
We may be in the home stretch of our anticipation for "Captain America: The First Avenger," but the buzz is only just beginning for next spring's "The Avengers," directed by Joss Whedon.
Paramount has released the official list of actors appearing in "Captain America," which seems like no big whoop but actually contains magical hints about Joss Whedon's "The Avengers." This list, in addition to leaked footage of the ending of "Captain America," has helped comic book fans suss out what's to come in Whedon's film -- specifically, what characters might pop up to surprise us.
The eagle-eyed have noted that "The Mentalist" beauty Amanda Righetti is the latest name to be added to the roster of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Get More »
Remember a few years ago, when college kids heading overseas for a couple months of site seeing and couch surfing would, like, sew Canadian flags onto their backpacks in order to avoid anti-American sentiment?
For the last year or so, Marvel Studios has been debating whether or not to metaphorically do the same thing by renaming "Captain America: The First Avenger" for international audiences.
The final decision?

Nobody loves "Captain America" quite like Chris Evans.
While sitting down with MTV News, the badass superhero star gave his seal of approval to the early footage he's seen from "Captain America: The First Avenger."
"I have not seen a full cut, I've seen quite a bit and everything I see I really like," said Evans. "Every single individual scene that I've seen, I've loved."
Even though "Captain America" won't be out in theaters until July 22, we'll just have to trust Evans' endorsement that this patriotic superhero flick will be as sweeet in its final cut.
For the full interview and much more from Evans, head on over to MTV News.
Marvel Comics fans are living the dream this summer, with three, count 'em, three huge movies (the one with the hammer guy, the one with the shield guy, and the one with the mutant guys) and the lead-up to next summer's superherostravaganza "The Avengers."
Unlike in the comics world, where each monthly installment is most likely churned out by a bitter, chain smoking writer and a couple of pasty-looking artists chained to a desk, a super hero movie is a complex piece of machinery involving a virtual army of highly paid technicians, actors and publicists. It's fairly easy in comics to have Thor battle a hoard of fire-breathing 85-headed hydras, but for a movie there would be endless meetings with executives arguing, "2-headed hydras would be more cost-efficient… Can one of the monsters have a Blackberry?" etc. Get More »
Praise Odin! "Captain America: The First Avenger" looks awesome.
Sure, the sight of Chris Evans turned skinny and wimpy via the magic of CGI takes some getting used to (and it probably will in the movie itself), but this is one rollicking trailer. The Nazis don't stand a chance against Steve Rogers, Super Soldier -- and neither does a lot of the summer competition. Get More »
