Why is he wearing a blue neck brace in that photo? Did someone rear-end him on the way to the show?  ::)

It's SUPPOSED to look cheesy!  That's what makes it awesome!

I've decided not to watch anything else until I see the movie.  Too much good stuff already getting spoiled!

My only gripe on what they have done wrong...they should have released this weekend to coincide with the 4th of July!  I realize with Transformers and Cars that is a lot of competition but it would have made a lot of sense.

Yeah, I always thought that as well.  You can see with the new trailer and poster that they are pushing the "America" angle a little bit more (at least here in the states).  I'm sure they would have rather released it for the 4th weekend, but like you said, the competition is pretty steep.  I'd hate to see it get crushed at the box office, and it is already opening close (the week after) the final Harry Potter film the way it is.  It is too bad TF wasn't earlier/later in the summer, because a Cap 4th of July would have been perfect.

Also, just saw this nifty retro Cap movie poster.  I think it came out a week or two ago, but I hadn't seen it until today:

Just saw this clip, with Cap fighting Hydra soldiers, thought it looked pretty sweet.  SPOILERS if you don't want to see anything from the movie - but it makes for a pretty nice action sequence I think:

According to this report:

http://comicbookmovie.com/fansites/MarvelFreshman/news/?a=41952

It sounds like the first trailer for Avengers will be the "after credits" scene for Cap.  They give a brief description at the link above, so if you are interested you can check it out there.  Also, SPOILERS because they do describe the final scenes of the Cap movie as well, so you may want to avoid that.

It's amazing how far CG has come.  The puny body effects (I assume it's a body swap) are just flawless.  Absolutely impressive.

Just bought my ticket for tonight's midnight show.  Looking forward to the movie, looking forward to not being in my sweltering apartment even more.

Yep.  So.  It was good.  It was as good as Thor but I still think Iron Man 1 was the best origins movie for this set of Avengers.

Evans was good as Captain America and the backstory worked well enough.  I thought that once he really turned into CA that they truncated some of the action because they took so long on the build-up and still needed time for the final showdown with the Red Skull at the end.

The movie didn't start or end where I thought it would, that's neither good or bad, just not what I expected.  Flowed well for most of it, the story was okay, but maybe lacked a little exposition...that may be something we'll have to wait for the Avengers to get more of.

Over all, glad I went.  It was pretty fun and the Avengers trailer at the end kicks ass.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie.  Cap has never been one of top favorites, and the history of screen (TV or Movie) is so horrible that I had few expectations.  It was nicely done and a great way to escape for a few hours.

I loved it. I was surprised by bow much I enjoyed Thor, but Captain America was even better. Good in a lot of different ways. Probably my favorite Stan Lee cameo as well.
