  1. So–is that Richard’s hand on the left firing at CA? 😉

    Good to see his name visible on a movie poster . . . a very retro look to it, n’est-ce pas?

    Hilter certainly is front and center getting punched out by CA . . . hmmmmmmmm . . .


  2. Fabulous to see Richard’s name on there…I wish his face could have been there too!


  3. LOL Angie, I also thought… it’s RA supposed represented by that ‘hand shooting’?

    Isn’t it great to see his name on the poster? At least, IMO for a character that in theory is only there for 10mins…

    OML 🙂


    • Kap,

      I was hoping for his face, too, but considering he is virtually unknown here in the
      States except amongst a select group of really discerning, fabulous females and now the Tolkien fans, I am very happy his name is clearly there and not in the smallest type, either. I mean, a lot more people here know who Stanley Tucci is than RA.
      Well, it does LOOK a lot like his hand. 😉 It’s nice to think at least a part of his glorious self made it onto the poster. And I agree, not bad at all for a character we are assuming will only be in a few minutes of the movie.


  4. Wow, what a gorgeous job they did! I realize that I’m a weirdo in this (imagine!) but I’m excited for this movie. I found my dad’s collection of old comic books when I was eight and it included Captain America. Love the Cap.


    • I don’t think you’re all that weird. I’m pretty sure Kaprekar is looking forward to it!

      I might actually like it once I am there. I had to be dragged to Spiderman w/Tobey Maguire and ended up liking that a lot.


      • Shhhh…you’ll ruin my rep 😉


        • When I saw this, I found myself thinking of some of the early Star Wars posters I had seen–there is a cool pre-release circus style poster Drew Struzan and Charles White III created with a wonderful 30s feel to it.

          Struzan did all the Indiana Jones posters, too, and Back to the Future.

          Re superhero comic books, my husband and his older brothers had accumulated quite the collection of them. And then one day my later MIL decided to do some cleaning. Yep. Threw them all out. I don’t think they ever quite forgave her for that. My oldest BIL still grouses about it from time to time.
          My mother did the same with my comics, although my collection was more eclectic–Superman mingled with romance/gothic comics and some blonde model character whose name I cannnot recall . . . I’ve always been a little eccentric, I guess.

          Looking at those over-sized pix on the allthingsarmitageblogspot the other day made me think, “Wow. This is a taste of what is to come. Really big Richard Armitage!! Squee!!”


          • Do they grumble about what all those comics would have been worth? Because…yeow, some of those are insanely expensive. Everytime someone gets some brain melting sum for a Honus Wagner card my father-in-law moans about it because he swears he had one and his mom threw all of his out.


  5. Can’t wait to see his face on the big screen. Others have said this before, and I was thinking it the last time I went to the movies — wow, we’re going to see him on that screen!


    • I thought the same when I went to watch a movie in 3D and my next thought was, I have to choose the last row so I won’t bother anyone when I start gushing and squeeing :P.

      OML 😀


  6. Excited to see his name on a big poster – well I presume it’s going to be really big when we see it on bill boards etc!! It would have been nice to see his face but we’re thankful for small mercies and his name IS fairly prominent! Like you servetus, that’s what I keep thinking about – seeing him on that BIG screen! I have at least one grandson ready and willing to go with me! As he said to me the other day, “You have waited a long time for this!!” Sweet guy to put up with his Gram’s craziness!!


  7. It’s a great poster. Love the retro feel of it. Thanks for sharing!


  8. Glad that RA’s name is quite prominent but quite disappointed his face wasn’t in the poster. That would be a collector item for us…hmmmm.


  9. […] June and July 2011. The first Captain America poster appears — with Richard Armitage’s name on it. Servetus moves home for a life makeover. Against expectations, however, she is offered and then […]
