For some reason, Marvel has decided to release the final scene from Captain America: The First Avenger online, along with a trailer for the trailer for The Avengers that plays at the end of the credits. Personally, I think this is a wholly moronic move by Marvel. Why release the final scene from a movie online that’s only been in theaters one week? Plenty of people haven’t had a chance to see it yet, and now literally the final minute of the film is being run all over the internet.
Nevertheless, hit the jump to watch it if you’re so inclined, but if you haven’t seen the movie yet I’d advise you to steer clear of the video. Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johanssen, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson. The film opens in 3D on May 4, 2012.
Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America:
Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Louis D’Esposito will executive produce. The film will be released in the US on July 22, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.
Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
