This is a great little featurette for CAPTAIN AMERICA:FIRST AVENGER called ‘Behind The Shield’ which tell the story of how Captain America/Steve Rodgers Shield & Character came to life. Its a nice little peice of History/origins some movies especially comic book movies sometimes forget to do and these featurette’s do give no fans of the comic book a chance to understand the movie’s protagonist a little better. Here’s hoping Captain America wont fall into the traps that the pathetic Green Lantern fell into, so far so good! This featurette comes courtesy of Norton who we know do their own form of ‘shielding’, shielding us all from those nasty viruses from the internet.
CAPTAIN AMERICA:FIRST AVENGER Stars Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Stanley Tucci, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Dominic Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, Derek Luke and Neal McDonough.
CAPTAIN AMERICA:FIRST AVENGER will be out in UK &Ireland on July 29th, in USA July 22nd.
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.
