The first trailer for Marvel and Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger was expected to bow sometime last week right behind the second Thor trailer. That obviously didn’t happen, and now word is the trailer will likely hit this week attached to Drive Angry 3D starring Nicholas Cage.
We got our first glimpse of Captain America in motion during the Super Bowl via a :30 second spot. That half-a-minute worth of footage was quite revealing in showing Chris Evans as Steve Rogers prior to the Super Soldier Serum injection, Tommy Lee Jones in character, Bucky and the Howling Commandos, Hugo Weaving in full Red Skull make-up, Hydra soldiers and the submarine, and an ample dose of action.
This first trailer will run 2:24 in length so we’re promised at least two solid minutes of new footage. I’d expect the trailer to follow the film’s negative and perhaps give us an idea of what Red Skull is up to, perhaps even a glimpse at the bookend present-day scenes that should include Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Those scenes are designed to tie into The Avengers film.
