I like it a lot actually. I love the fact that Red Skull is in the background looming over everyone else, a perfect spot for him. I'm really excited for this film.

My guess is they are selling the audience on Chris Evans in the lead? Since we know from trailers he is going to have the mask on plenty. Also, it's not uncommon for Steve to have his outfit on and mask off, granted not in combat like that poster implies but still.

Cap being frozen in ice at the end of World War II (he was trying to stop yet another nefarious plot) and then being rediscovered in the modern era is a huge part of his story. In the comics, he was thawed out in the 1960s, but since in the movies he'll be thawed out in the 2000s, the culture shock's going to be even stronger.

I'm already looking forward to the sequel.

He hates all Star Trek. He just can't get used to this "tele-vision" thing. At least Abrams' movie is in a movie theater, where such things belong!

I really like the new trailer but I still think this film will have a very hard time on the international market. I've been following discussions about it on German sf/f forums and almost everybody's extremely sceptical if not downright hostile towards it. I don't personally know anyone who doesn't roll their eyes at the mention of a Captain America movie, except for some people who are big Marvel comics fans in the first place.

Then again, Germany is a country where any kind of patriotism has been frowned upon for decades. Maybe other countries won't have as much of a problem with it.

Isn't that a bit of the German nature?

Well, he was thawed out in the "present". The 1960s is just when the first version of the story was printed.

He likes Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon.

Though I sometime think the culture shock angle might be over played. After all in the 1940s he hob nobbed with an flying flaming Android and an Atlantean Prince who thinks swimtrunks are formal wear, used advanced technology (including jet aircraft and television) and occasionally fought aliens. He's probably wondering where the jetpacks and flying cars are.

After Captain America gets thawed out, he discovers internet porn and is never seen again.

Captain America is easily the most popular superhero that I don't know anything about. I've learned more about him from the trailers than I ever knew before.
