    Earlier this week it was reported that we'd see the official The First Avenger: Captain America movie poster. Here it is. 

    No Caption Provided
    Where's the mask? It's clearly a case of the studios wanting to show off Chris Evans' face. It makes sense. But obviously this is a superhero movie. Who is it being made for or marketed to? People know they're getting a movie about a guy in a flag costume. 
     
    I'm still unsure about the costume. This is WWII time. The costume, to me, looks too modern. There's also the shield. We know he'll have the first version so we have to assume that he gets the upgrade during the movie. Speaking of shields, what was the deal with the shield in Iron Man 2?  
     
    What do you guys think about this? Should he have the mask on? Does it speak Captain America to you? The word also is we'll see a trailer or footage during the Super Bowl this Sunday.

    Very cool, and very Cap-ish.  I don't think he needs the mask on the poster, I mean Thor isn't wearing his helmet on his poster (or for a majority of the movie, I believe...)

    The costume does have a somewhat modern appearance if you compare it to WWII era attire. That being said, I think it's a good look overall. It's a good balance between the classic Cap costume and a more believable take on the suit. I doubt they are planning on changing his costume much once he hits present day in the Avengers movie, so I think of it as a bit of creative foresight on the designer’s part. 
     
    Personally I do think having the mask on would have been more appropriate, but the poster is still pretty awesome as is.

    Very nice, I like the gritty feel of the poster and the textures, very much like Cap at war. I think the lack of mask and the facial expression brings more depth and intensity to the poster. I think it looks great.  Can't wait for that trailer.

    Arrrggh!  This damn CAP movie has me frustrated!  The ONLY movie I've liked from Johnson is THE ROCKETEER...I've been very underwhelmed and even disgusted by some of his other work (THE WOLFMAN anyone, JURASSIC PARK III...blurg).  As much as I want to hop on board with this I just can't.  I love CAP and he deserves a great flick to capture his awesomeness, but I was hooked by the teaser pics of WOLFMAN too and that was a downright terrible film with NO redeeming value whatsoever.  Sure, blame the writing, but the director bears the responsibility of the film...it is suppose to be their "direction" and vision brought to the screen.  Markus and McFeely are credited for the screenplays for three boring Narnia movies.  Needless to say...I'm very concerned.

    I actually like the poster, although I agree he needs to be wearing the helmet. I also much rather the round shield over the classic highway sign shield.
     
    I also think the shield we saw in Iron Man 2 was obviously a prototype of Howard Stark.

    Did you forget how much producers and studios do when it comes to movies. You may have a movie directed by such and such and it's their vision and all that is supposed to be translated and all. But producers and studios get involved and stuff like Wolverine: Origins and X-Men 3 happens. But there are cases when you have the director's pure vision (Spider-Man 3). And it's not much better.  You can't mock a movie until you watch it. You may just like it. 
     
    I miss being a kid, when there wasn't an internet and we had no real idea of what movies were coming out. We just watch the trailer and go wow that looks really good. That's how I felt when I watched the trailers for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Batman (with Michael Keaton). So I went and saw the movies and was still wowed. But now there is so much information overload, that we harsh on the movies. But I try my best not to rag, yeah there were times when I did. I sat down years ago and read that Willem DeFoe was going to be Green Goblin and make into crap, but he didn't. We were all concerned about Heath Ledger as the Joker. And that man alone set the level for comic book villains on film. And yes I am still at a point where I am not so sure about Chris Evans as Cap, when I still see Johnny Storm. But I am looking forward to the movie. We are going to be amazed or we are going to be pissed as hell. However until the day that we get off our collective asses and go and make a comic book movie the way we want it to be shown, we need to shut up and let them do their jobs.
     
    PS:  the Rocketeer was not that good of a movie.

    I really hope this doesn't suffer the "Topher Grace effect".
     
    You know, the idea that in a movie you have to show off the star's face as much as possible, even if that means compromising the character. Spiderman 3, while clearly a bad movie in general suffered greatly from this.

    Why are you all upset he's not wearing a mask in this poster? He shouldn't be. Think about it. The image is of him mourning, paying his respects to the dead and those affected by the war (symbolized by the flecks of dirt and debris all around him). So just like someone would take their hat off when making a similar gesture he's taken off his mask. 
     
    This also works with the word "AVENGE". From what I understand of the plot the first part of the movie Cap isn't fightning because the military thinks he's too expensive to send to the front lines. It's only after some event that is caused by the Red Skull/Hydra that Cap is sent into battle. So in essence he is "avenging" those affecting by the actions of the Nazi's. This is of course what makes him the First Avenger. This would also help to make non-comic book readers understand why the modern team is called Avengers. In the comics it was just a cool name Wasp came up with but since then it has a meaning, the fact that the Avengers are a reactionary team vice a proactive one like X-Force. Rather than wait for modern audiences to come to this realization this movie will explain it through Caps' actions.

    I think the shield from Iron man 2 was for Tony Stark designing a shield for Cap when he is found from the ice.

    I do like the idea of the helmet mask in combat because it would be functional, but it is pretty dorky looking. I'm glad they left it off the poster.
