We meet Steve Rogers, a scrawny youth desperate to get into the US Army but rejected multiple times because of his small size (thanks to some CGI work, they’ve managed to make Chris Evans look rather wee). Desperate to get to the front line to dish out the pain to the Nazis, Steve finally gets his chance when General Chester Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones) offers him a chance to be a guinea pig for Operation: Rebirth. Pumped full of Super Soldier serum, Steve becomes Captain America, a perfect specimen of human capability.
He quickly becomes a hero of World War II but his problems won’t end there as the Nazis has their own version of the technology that they’re planning to unleash thanks to the evil scientist Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving).
It looks like great stuff and features Stanley Tucci, Hayley Atwell, Richard Armitage, Dominic Cooper and Sebastian Stan. Captain America: The First Avenger will hit UK screens on July 29th. Stars and Stripes!
