Tag: The First Avenger
There are few weapons as iconic as Captain America’s shield. Well Batman has his batarangs and all sorts of gadgets, Wolverine has his claws but Cap has a shield. A mighty fine shield made of vibranium-iron alloy. A shield that basically absorbs all kinetic impact received and due to its qualities it can also be used as a weapon to ricochet from one surface to another without loss of velocity. Let’s just say it’s more than just a shield. At our neck of the woods we still need to wait two more weeks for the movie but all these clips sure add to the hype. Looking good Marvel!
The Trailer for The First Avenger was pretty awesome but the TV spot adds to the excitement. Just the fact that folks seem to find the shield from ice looks really promising as in the movie should follow the comic book storyline, at least the Ultimate one. Less than a month to go, can’t wait!
Can’t believe it’s almost July. What’s so special about July? The release of Captain America: The First Avenger of course. Just to add to the already massive hype around the movie is the latest trailer that shows more footage from the upcoming blockbuster. It’s crazy to even think that it’s been like 4 years since we were speculating on the Captain America the movie and how it should pen. I mean damn, the new trailer gives a pretty good indication of how the movie will be like and I have to say I like it. So make sure to catch the movie which premieres in less than a month.
Being that the release of the Captain America: The First Avenger movie is just behind the corner it comes as no surprise that Hot Toys is also gearing up to release a collectible figure based on the Comic Book hero’s movie version. The authentic looks of the 1:6 figure and add ons like the iconic shield and an assault rifle (?) make this one hot toy. Damn, if these action figures were around when I was growing up. Maybe I need to get Maxwell one of the collectible figures, at least once he gets into the age when he learns how to appreciate action figures, he would be the coolest kid on the block (as if he wasn’t already). Nicely done Hot Toys!
Marvel recently released the official trailer for the Captain America: The First Avenger. We saw the first spot during Super Bowl halftime, now we have the official trailer for the movie. The film looks awesome, I mean as a fan of the comics I could not find anything to complain about the trailer. I seriously can’t wait for the film. So what do you think about the movie version of Steve Rogers?
You know I am exctied about the upcoming Captain America the First Avenger movie. Being a huge fan of Cap and comic books in general I can’t wait to see how they put this one together. One thins I already appreciate is the fact that they have made the movie to take place in the WW2 era and kept it real with the costumes. Now we’ve seen some initial pictures of Steve Rogers / Captain America, but this far we have only seen the concept art of the “Captain America attire”. Well the wait is over and Marvel has given us the first look at how Cap will look like in the movie.
