I think that probably holds true for THOR as well.

That may well be. I think that Green Lantern is likely to suffer from being so faithful to the comics that it seems silly to the casual audience.

I'm charmed by the whole WWII milieu of the CA movie. I'm not sure I'd find him as interesting in the fish-out-of-water "present day" version - and I'm not sure Hayley would be quite as ravishing without that 40s 'do and lipstick.

Looks pretty good. To an extent, the story is very familiar, but the 1940s setting makes it distinctive (compared to, say, the Green Lantern trailer, which, even though I like the character, seems to have nothing much new compared to every other superhero movie made in the last 10 years).

Hayley Atwell looks great in the period garb, though having seen Brideshead Revisited that doesn't surprise me.

Tommy Lee Jones' speech sounded pretty good.

As amazing as this film is going to be, it's really sad to see it stricken by the cinematic blight of orange-and-teal color timing.

I'm beginning to think you've gone so far into character, you actually believe that.

That's the LEAST of GL's problems, if what I've heard is true.

Think of it as photoshop for movies. Color corrections, enhancements, tinting, brightness, contrast, etc., on the entire shot, one/multiple spots, and everything in between.

I, too, am tired of everything that takes place between 1850 and 1959 having a muddy brown pallet.

Thanks for the link. That was an interesting read. Now that I know what I've been looking at I get it...some of the time. In that article I can't say I felt anything was wrong in Wolfman or say Hot Tub Time Machine. The author of the piece notes one of the worst offenders being Transformers 2. Let's be honest I had zoned out of that movie for more reasons than color palatte.

I can't say I notice too much here in Cap, especially now that I know. A few places in that trailer perhaps but it's not going to ruin my experience.

I just saw this new trailer at the end of The Daily Show tonight, very cool! I like this trailer, it looks like an exciting movie. It looks as exciting as Ironman did in 2008 or Star Trek 09. This summer should rock!

Awesome trailer

As much as my enthusiasm is diminishing for Thor (which i'll still see) my anticipation is rising with every new information we get on Captain America.

I like the decision to set it mostly during WW2, the visual style (a bit too "high tech" for the 40s but hey.. it's a comic book movie), the little geek tidbits (Mr. Stark, Dum Dum Dugan and the Howling Commandos) and above all.. Cap throwing/bouncing his shield around.

I especially give props to the effect guys for making Evans the whimp by CGI or whatever they used to make him the weakling Rogers pre-supersoldier. That looked really good and came off really well.. additionally he is one of the very few superhero actors who actually have a physique similar to the comicbook character (discounting the most exaggerated artworks of course).

Definitely looking forward to the movie.

Second all of that.

I think they did the best job they could at making that lab equipment look old-fashioned, though. The green enamel paint job on Rogers' "conversion chamber" or whatever is a great touch.

Funny thing is, I had higher hopes for Thor initially due to the director (Kenneth Branagh) but it's starting to look not too great from the trailers. Captain America I had lower expectations for due to the director (Joe Johnston, a good concept artist but not a great director.)-but it looks like it will be better than Thor IMO.

Do we know if this one is going to have any post-credits scene yet? I know it's still early to ask that, but I realized earlier that so far each of the pre-Avengers movies has had one set up the next movie.
