Evans is backed by an all-star cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving who plays arch-nemesis Red Skull, the Nazi mastermind who considers himself much like, well, Steve.
The movie follows the Marvel comic book’s story arc and is the latest in the summer superhero blockbuster movie sweepstakes.
Hero Steve Rogers is a sickly, 90-pound weakling with a strong desire to fight for his country in World War II.
He’s rejected by the Army, but chosen for a new, experimental program precisely because of his physical condition.
Hey, if it works on him, it will work on anybody.
With some special serum and Frankenstein-like laboratory equipment, he’s transformed into a muscle-bound hunk with a heart of gold and guts of steel.
The clip features a number of action scenes and shows off the movie’s CGI effects, which are always the star in pictures like these.
Rogers puts the Nazis through the hoops along with a cadre of colorful sidekicks who make up the “Howling Commandos.”
The clip also features the comic book’s classic line, which sort of sets forth Rogers’ moral philosophy.
“Don’t change who you are once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier; you have to stay who you are inside, that’s really what’s important more than your strength and everything,” he’s told by Dr.
Steve gets the big picture; he’s the kind of a guy who would jump on a grenade to save his comrades.
The movie opens next month.
