Of all the super-hero movies this (northern hemisphere) summer, the only one that I’m super excited about is Captain America.
Having a young family means that I now choose my movie theatre trips carefully. Thor, X-men: First Class and Green Lantern can all wait until Blu-ray. But not Captain America. In preparation for the movie, I recently took a look at director Joe Johnston’s last period super-hero picture, The Rocketeer. After twenty years, I swear that movie is even better than I remembered it! I’ll be writing more about The Rocketeer in a few days time.
Marvel Studios have been releasing a steady flow of TV spots for Captain America: The First Avenger. Each one effectively the same shots edited differently. TV spot 8 is a little different and offers up a sequence that should get every single fan of the Marvel character just a little excited.
