With director Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger set to hit theaters next week, Paramount has released the EPK (electronic press kit) which includes 4 movie clips, a Meet Captain America Featurette, and almost 9 minutes of behind the scenes footage from when they were making the movie (B-Roll). If you’re trying to stay spoiler free, I’d advise you to avoid watching these videos. But if you want to see as much footage as possible, hit the jump. The behind the scenes footage is really cool. Especially if you want to see what it was like on set.
Finally, while I can’t say much…I saw Captain America last night and loved it. I’d be happy to go into more detail…and I will when the embargo lifts. But for now, just know Marvel has another home-run on their hands and you should be very excited to see it next week. Enjoy the clips. Captain America stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Stanley Tucci, Natalie Dormer, Sebastian Stan and Dominic Cooper.
For more Captain America coverage, here’s 78 images from the movie.

Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
