    I wish my senior portrait had come out this good.
    I wish my senior portrait had come out this good.

    Everybody knows that this summer’s packed with more big “tentpole” movies than any previous year. If we were back in 2001, I feel like the CAPTAIN AMERICA marketing campaign would’ve reached saturation point well ahead of its release. In 2011, we’re a couple months away from the movie dropping and there hasn’t be a ton of advertising for it, yet. Not as much as I can see driving past billboards in LA, anyway. Perhaps we’re in store for a tighter and more focused campaign - - the special forces equivalent of brand awareness.

    Either way, every big movie these days has to have its own series of character-specific posters. I really want to say the policy started with the first X-MEN movie, because it’d be a hoot if that movie started a trend that a flick like BRIDSEMAIDS is following, 11 years later. Regardless, we’ve got these one-sheets from Joblo that give some individual attention to Cap, Peggy Carter and the Red Skull. They’re more direct than all those edgy “the god of…” posters THOR had and less outlandish than GREEN LANTERN ones which put a lot more attention on aliens like Kilowog and Tomar Re. But that’s A-OK - - Cap’s a straightforward guy.

    I do think it’s a little funny that Peggy’s poster just has her standing there without a gun in hand. All she’s packing is sass, I suppose.

    I love it when the first two posts on an article completely disagree with each other... xP 
     
    I personally think Red Skull looks freaking AWESOME there. But they do need a little sign saying "DUDE IT'S HUGO WEAVING!" just to make sure the average movie-goer gets the message. I mean, who doesn't love Hugo?

    I have a fair amount of hope for the Cap movie, the Red Skull looks good, Cap works visually; he might even punch Hitler in the face. Good stuff.

    Meh.... could've been better.  They could've classed it up a bit.  Given a bit more drama to these images.  All these characters are just standing there in very boring poses.   Maybe given a bit more mystery to the Red Skull's poster.  I mean add a little bit of mystery so you can't really see his face.  Add a bit of menace to it.  And yeah, that last poster is REALLY dumb. 

    Hell, why not stylize it to look like the WW2-era artwork?  As it is, it just reminds me of those really bland Prince of Persia movie posters.

    I think they look great.  Don't know having Peggy Carter on a poster sells the movie tho.  Captain America looks awsome but his mask look something I would have ripped off and said was to damn tight.

    About time they release something else for this movie. All the other movies are getting all kinds of promotion and attention. For a minute I felt like this film was being neglected.

    I like the Skull with the sole exception being he is not a Nazi anymore. It kind of makes him less evil when he is not proudly wearing the swastika armband.

    Thor's posters look better.
     
    Red Skull looks weird like he's about to fall over O_o and if you don't know who Peggy Carter is, that poster is pretty pointless....
     
    Still looking forward to the movie though.

    What is the Red Skull doing, catching flies? 

    And what is the Human Torch doing dressed up at Captain America.
