Entertainment Weekly has offered up the first official look of Chris Evans as Captain America! Check it out and weigh in with your thoughts!
Captain America: The First Avenger is being directed by Joe Johnston (The Wolfman) and co-stars Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl) as sidekick Bucky Barnes, Haylee Atwell (The Duchess) as love-interest Peggy Carter, Tommy Lee Jones as possibly General Chester Phillips, Hugo Weaving as the villain Red Skull, and Toby Jones (W.) as Arnim Zola. Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22, 2011.
The film is set in 1942 and tells the story of how Steve Rogers (Evans) goes from a skinny kid with an itch to kill Nazis to a superhero called Captain America, thanks to a top-secret military program called Project: Rebirth. Haley Atwell plays his love interest, Major Peggy Carter, while Sebastian Stan has stepped into the role of sidekick Bucky Barnes. Hugo Weaving, meanwhile, plays Red Skull, Hitler’s über-evil weapons chief and, inevitably, the Captain’s adversary after he forms plans to use a fantastical device called the Tesseract to conquer the world.
