He is even given a costume that bear the colors of Old Glory for the stage. Then, when a Nazi plot reveals itself Rogers must rise up and and become the First Avenger, in order to save his country. Steve Rogers becomes Captain America and he earns his way into the hearts and souls of every American, bringing hope and justice to a war-weary nation.

Revived, Steve Rogers now must join forces with new heroes and become an Avenger of the modern age.

  1. Saving the best for last, eh? ;D

    Thanks for the link you emailed, btw, will have a look as soon as I have time to sit down with it. :)

  2. I think I might watch this for Richard Armitage.

  3. This is the best movie I've seen this year and, for me, that is big. I've watched The Rise of The Planet of The Apes and the new X-Men movie, but I really liked Captain America. It has a lot of positive messages and different scenes and action parts that keep you interested.
