New trailer and poster for Captain America reiterate hero’s American-ness

If Marvel were at one point concerned that Captain America: The First Avenger would fail to find an audience outside of the U.S. (due to the hero’s nationalistic leanings) there is no evidence of it in their new poster and trailer, which go out of their way to push Cappy’s American-ness (Americanity? Ameriquity?).

The new teaser gives us some more footage of shrunken Chris Evans (before he gets upgraded to be the super-soldier we know and love), as well as Hugo Weaving as the villainous Nazi Red Skull.

Check it out and share your thoughts below.

Captain America: The First Avenger, directed by Joe Johnston, hits Australian cinemas July 28.

Discuss: A little too jingoistic, or is it just some good old fashioned pride in the U.S.A.?

  1. Who’s doing the music???

  2. Umm…the movie and main character is called Captain America. What else are they going to put behind him than an American flag.

  3. One doesn’t need to be an American to enjoy a bout of ludicrous, preposterous and over- the-top Americaninityismness!
