We’re officially two days away from the world premiere of Captain America: The First Avenger and I have to admit, I’m actually pretty excited for it. There was a time when The Blot had extremely low expectations for this film but that all changed over the past 2 months. What can I say, Marvel has really won me over with the film’s incredible trailers. I am still a little worried about the fact that Captain America stars Chris Evans (he’s proven to be the kiss of death for comic book adaptations ala Fantastic Four, Scott Pilgrim and The Losers), but I’m willing to give him a pass since I actually enjoyed all three of those movies.
Captain America: The First Avenger, directed by Joe Johnston and starring Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones, is scheduled to debut in theaters on July 22, 2011.
