Seen The Daily Mail’s Photos From The Set Of CAPTAIN AMERICA??

Published at: Sept. 28, 2010, 2:30 a.m. CST by hercules

I am – Hercules!! New photos of Chris Evans make Steve Rogers almost look like a CGI Hulkified Chris Evans! Britain’s Daily Mail and INF was all over the set in Manchester, showing a lot of period costumes and period vehicles and Captain America’s hobbity fake feet. Based on the Timely Comics from the 1940s, “Captain America: First Avenger” is about a spindly American transformed into a mighty supersoldier by a strange formula designed to help defeat Hitler's minions. Joe Johnston (“Jurassic Park III,” “Hildago,” “The Wolfman”) is directing from a screenplay by the team of Christopher Marcus & Stephen McFeely (the “Narnia” movies) and Joss Whedon (“Toy Story,” “Speed,” “Alien: Resurrection,” “Serenity,” “The Avengers”). Cast includes: Steve Rogers: Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four”) Peggy Carter: Hayley Atwell (“The Prisoner”) Red Skull: Hugo Weaving (“The Lord of the Rings”) Dum Dum Dugan: Neal McDonough (“Flags of Our Fathers”) Arnim Zola: Toby Jones (“W”) Bucky Barnes: Sebastian Stan (“Hot Tub Time Machine”) Chester Phillips: Tommy Lee Jones (“No Country For Old Men”) Abraham Erskine: Stanley Tucci (“The Lovely Bones”) Howard Stark: Dominic Cooper (“Mamma Mia!”) Montgomery Falsworth: JJ Feild (“K-19: The Widowmaker”) Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson (“Iron Man 2”) Find all of The Daily Mail’s photos here. Find all of INF’s photos here.

    early prediction: Captain America will be much better than Thor

    by Stifler's Mom

    The setting, the cast, the costumes- everything is looking decent on Captain America, and Joe Johnston is a good match for the material. But Thor is looking mighty campy and potentially bad, based on some of those early pics.

    by toshiro-solo

    I finally watched Scott Pilgrim this weekend at a second run theater, and when Evans was on screen, I was thinking about him playing Cap, and thinking - "I'm not so sure about that." This silenced me. He looks big as fuck, and - more importantly - like Cap! Not "edgy" or "cool" or "hip", but - kinda square and just plain right. Looking forward to this more and more.

    I thought you only did TV stuff <p> Or is this because whenever your messiah (Whedon for those unaware) is involved in a project you have the right to post the related article ? <p> For those new to Herc, Whedon could produce a 30 minute blank tape and Herc would pronouce it the most important piece of art ever. (I would probably be guilty of the same if Lucas produced a blank tape about star wars) <p> I actually really like Whedon's work in buffy, angel and firefly and could see some positives in Dollhouse (in my opinion great concept, average execution, poor choice for lead "actress")

    by Animorganimate

    ...fucking feet?! That's some Ed Gein shit right there. Why have I not seen ANYONE commenting on the feet yet. This isn't THE HOBBIT...and those feet don't look real. I don't understand why they are needed, seeing as how they'll look all sorts of creepy on film. What's going on with the human-flesh-boots?! Why not wear green socks to be replaced later with CGI. I just don't get it. YOU CAN SEE THE SEAM WHERE THEY SEWED THE FLESH TOGETHER. THAT'S SICK!!!

    by ForgetfulPete

    when THOR tanks, making less than LEGENDS OF THE GUARDIANS THE OWLS OF GAY HOLE, and then CAPTAIN AMERICA tanks and makes even less than THOR - what will happen to the much-vaunted AVENGERS movie? Held back for retooling? Recuts and removals of actors? ReplaCED WITH IRON MAN 3? You heard it here first!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 8:33 p.m. CST

    My guess on the feet...

    by boogel

    Is that the scene needs Cap to be bare foot but it was just too cold and/or there's too much broken glass and whatnot on the ground. So they whipped up some feet-slippers to run around in. Figuring they'll fix it post.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 8:33 p.m. CST

    Nick Fury fought in WWII with the "Howling Commandos"

    by Chewtoy

    ...which wasn't a problem at first, since most of Marvels characters were created 20 years after the war ended. Eventually, though, they had to explain why he was still around, and so he was given some kind of Super Soldier treatment (not Cap's, which they keep trying to duplicate and failing) that has extended his lifespan. At least, that's how regular Fury worked... I have no idea if Ultimate Fury dates back to WWII.

    by kiwijar

    You'd have to assume that the fake feet are used for the fact im guessing the scene is him running around barefoot on broken glass or something similar, so instead of actually running around barefoot and running the risk of cutting feet...these are used instead

I don't think everyone expects you guys to get everything first, but it's just pointless to post it days too late. Just sayin.

    I like your stuff. You don't have to get all defensive. It's an observable fact that AICN is a shell of what it was 5-10 years ago. It's not your fault - you actually do a terrific job in your TV column and it's also not your fault that Harry will engage any/all of us in an email battle but won't run the site the way he used to. He was too "busy" to review Inception for a fucking month. We get it. We just go to Geektyrant or Comics Alliance or Superhero Hype or the Kryptonsite for our news now. We go to AICN for the occasional dick-suck exclusive or because we appreciate your measured opinion or reviews by people like Capone or Massawyrm. Again, I'm not targeting you: you don't deserve it. Others do.

    A question for Cap fans...

    by boogel

    I didn't read the books when I was a kid so I'm missing some of the details. The Army gives a weakling GI super serum as both a PR stunt and as a way to stop some SuperNazi. It works and we win the war. But why was he frozen? Was it on purpose to keep him young for the next war. And if that was the case why did they keep him on ice for so long. It sounds like Nick Fury got the watered down version of the same stuff and it made him mathuzelah. If it worked that way on Fury why wasn't it going to work on Cap.

    Blanket-Man - they're not fearing it I don't think

    by ForgetfulPete

    they're at this point anticipqting it. Why do you think they're working SO hard to keep down info on the movies, to shut off access to pictures of the costumes/sets? They know they've got two dismal failures already and they know the movies won't have legs overseas, and they know that these flicks are gonna fall and fall hard. I suspect it may be a tax loss kind of thing, failures on purpose like THE PRODUCERS, or they would be pulling the plug the way Warner pulle the plug so wisely on the nobody would go see it if his life depended on it JUSTICE LEAGUE. That failed, as we ALL knew it would if we have a brain, to even get made. And hopefully AVENGERS will suffer the same cancellation fate, and we can be done with comic book movies.

    by UltraTron

    Guys film adds weight. I'd be surprised if he's 5/10. Figure Stallone looks big onscreen and he's 5/5 and the lifts make him 5 6". They hire tiny people to make the sets look bigger so it's cheaper to build them and they look more extravagant. That's why downey jr is 5 2" and Daniel radcliff is 3 1". Anyway I'd like to see him kickstart the economy in the film. Perhaps he could encourage hollywood to stop farming out all effects work to india and other nations and perhaps convince the president to subsidize the arts so that america holds on to the ONLY FUCKING industry that they have. Just sayin!

    Yeah, the freezing thing was a bit of revisionist history from M

    by Chewtoy

    After the war ended in real life, not surprisingly the popularity of the Captain America comic dropped substantially. (Superheroes in general fell out of favor in comics as well.) Marvel (still called Timely Comics back then, I think) tried to bring Cap back a few times including a "Commie-smasher!" version back in the 50's, but it never really took. Then when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were doing the Avengers in the 60's they decided to bring Cap back to be on that team, and didn't want the crappy post-war comics in continuity. So they wrote a "last mission" flashback for Cap where Bucky died and Cap ended up frozen in the arctic until the Avengers found him. The other post-war Caps were later explained as impostors or other government agents.

    America is going to be the better film, and probably do betterat the b.o than Thor. Much of what im seeing, call me crazy, of CA is looking damn good. Joe Johnson is still the one and only directer to make a great period superhero film (the Rocketeer), while every other attempt (the shadow, the Phantom, the Spirit etc..) have all been terrible...Plus they have hugo weaving playing the Red Skull, how perfect is that? The Red Skull really could be an iconic villain. Plus the WW2 period setting could set CA apart from all other superhero films and make it accessible for people usually not into the typical superhero film imho....

    by Dlgothv

    No, Cap was unintentionally frozen. Depending which Marvel you read (regular or Ultimate), Cap was thrown into the Artic Ocean as he was trying to dismantle some super rocket built by HYDRA and Baron Zemo. The super soldier serum kept his body alive as he froze in the water. Stark Industries found Cap some forty years later as a part of some glacier. Later stories said that Eskimo-like natives found Cap and fished him out of the water like some secret worshipped god. Namor, the Sub-Mariner, came across these natives and scattered them as he recognized the body of Cap. Nick Fury was given the Infinty Formula, a very watered down version of the super soldier serum which prolonged his life span, not to mention he's been cloned, killed, resurrected, and duplicated himself through decoy androids...

    Thor just looks like Iron Man in execution.

    by Dennis_Moore

    Branagh, while a superb actor, as a director with his non-Shakespeare movies he usually just apes whatever style is popular at the time. For example, look at Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Similar in title, aesthetic, and tone to Bram Stoker's Dracula. I imagine elements of the Shakespeare movies he's directed also are mimicking other popular movies that are contemporary with their filming.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 1:28 a.m. CST

    This is making more sense...but

    by boogel

    You can see Caps shield in Starks workshop in the first IronMan movie. Yet he hadn't met Nick Fury at that point. So did Stark Industries find the frozen Cap -before- the events in IM1. And if so have they just not bothered to thaw him or did they thaw him and not inform SHIELD. Because if the end of the Cap movie takes place before the first IM movie you would think Tony would be aware of SHIELD. If these movies are in order then the end of the Cap movies would take place after the IM movies and Tony wouldn't have that shield on his workbench. Am I making any sense.

    like a solid, singular disc of Vibranium/Steel alloy like the original one in the books, in the movie it'll be of parts with tech inside to explain how it bounces around and back to Cap, because they are too cowardly to bring in the awe and weird wonder of a superhero universe into the movies. Hence we get too much forced fake slant verisimilitude in these movies.

    @boogel, re: Cap's shield in 'Iron Man'

    by buggerbugger

    I'm guessing that Cap doesn't have his shield with him when he's frozen in the 1940s. The shield ends up at Stark Industries, in the possession of Howard Stark (and then his son), for the next sixty-odd years. That way, there's no real reason for Iron Man to have even heard of SHIELD before Fury turns up at the end of the movie. Presumably there will be a scene at the end of 'Captain America' (or 'The Avengers'?) where Cap is reunited with his shield.

Pardon my French, but what a load of shit. Vader deserved better than that. <p> Goodbye for now, Vader. You are a wise Talkbacker, a helluva Pedalbacker, and a loyal friend. I hope you will be back soon. <p> Beaks, if you have any appreciation for fairness, you will reinstate D Vader. I call on all of you who laughed or argued with Vades over the years to join me in imploring Beaks to undo his grave error. It is time to fix this, sir.
