Marvel Studios brings their prodigious patriot to the big screen with this action-filled outing surrounding Steve Rogers, a once meek U.S. soldier turned hero thanks to an experimental super serum, giving him the strength and agility far beyond a normal human being. This production will be followed up two months later with The Avengers, teaming the character with other Marvel screen heroes from their catalogue.
Captain America: The First Avenger may be hitting cinema screens in just under three months, but that hasn't stopped Joe Johnston picking up the camera for some (very) last minute shooting this weekend.
Heading to Times Square with Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson, a scene was shot that involved Evans doing yet more running and Jackson looking typically enigmatic as Nick Fury.
Speculation is rife that this could be a post-credits sequence that segues nicely into next year's The Avengers – especially as a modern day Times Square was the setting.

Not wanting to let Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man hog all the limelight when it comes to new images, Marvel have released the first picture of Chris Evans in his full Captain America gear.
Entertainment Weekly have the pic, which is the first look we've had at Evans in the full suit.
Cappy's costume was never going to be the easiest to pull off, but they've managed to retain all of the comic character's iconic touches, but within a 'real-world' vibe.
The suit looks lived-in and combat-ready, and the infamous headgear is cooler than it has any right to be.
His trademark shield seems to have taken some fire too, and those are some intriguing-looking goons in the background.
It'll be interesting to see how the Captain's period suit evolves before he joins The Avengers.

Captain America was revealed just yesterday courtesy of a colourful Entertainment Weekly cover. Now scans of the gems inside that issue have cropped up online, and show off even more of Chris Evans as the patriotic freedom fighter. A lot more. Impressive pectorals aside, there's what appears to be a prototype version of his infamous shield, as well as a first look at the Captain's helmet.Source: www.totalfilm.com
