CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
Reviews for Captain America: The First Avenger are embargoed right up until the 20th but a couple of tweets have gotten out already and CBM have collated them.
Hero Complex's Geoff Boucher:
"First react: 'Captain America: TFA' is the first Marvel Studios film that presents a compelling on-screen romance."
Australian TV host Renee Bargh.
"I just saw Captain America & I have to admit Chris Evans did an awesome job & was looking pretty fine! Looking forward to interviewing him."
Filmmaker Olivier Lebourg.
"Wow. Captain America was way better than I expected. A bit like Rocketeer on steroids with a hint of Indiana Jones... LOVED it! They did such a great job with the character that I kinda wish we'd get a sequel before the Avengers. Even though I know it won't happen."
