CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST TRAILER

Ever since the Super Bowl spot almost two months ago, there's been heavy anticipation for the full Captain America: The First Avenger trailer to finally make its debut, which it did last night courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, and here it is in HD straight from Marvel. As you can see, it does a very nice job of laying out both the narrative sweep and stylistic approach to the Joe Johnston-directed film, in the process throwing down the gauntlet for "Most Anticipated" of this summer's bumper crop of superhero pics.

In addition to fully displaying the Benjamin Button-esque effects that will transform Chris Evans' Steve Rogers from scrawny to brawny, the trailer also offers our first good looks at Tommy Lee Jones as Colonel Chester Phillips, the man who recruits Rogers into the "Super Soldier" project, and Stanley Tucci as Dr. Erksine, the scientist who makes it all happen. I have to say, I love this. It offers tantalizing hints of everything I could want in a Cap movie, while still holding enough back to promise plenty of surprises. The summer movie season officially just got interesting.

I hope they at least give a nod to the Isaiah Bradley storyline... or, if they go more the Ultimate marvel route, Nick Fury.

That'd be nice. Just a little "Easter egg," if nothing else.
