More Captain America schnick-schnack

This is the page spread with the photo of Mr. Armitage from Captain America: The First Avenger — The Movie Storybook, available for $6.99.

The scan cuts off the margins of the page but you get the idea. You can enlarge this photo by clicking and then clicking again. Look at his eyes, the sadness. They’re also finally allowing him to have laugh lines around his eyes again. We haven’t seen this many wrinkles since Cold Feet.

  1. He does look really sad here. I Everything happened so fast in the film, I didn’t see this detail. The devoted spy whose conscience is pricking him a little over what he is about to do?

    You know, his laugh lines showed up a lot in some of his video blog interviews for The Hobbit, too. I don’t think about how much they are covered up until I see photos/video of him where he isn’t wearing makeup/airbrushed. They give his face character, indicate he is a man who loves to smile and laugh and somehow make him a little more–human? Like the rest of us mere mortals . . . ,

    Also, as I don’t have many wrinkles yet, I don’t feel so enormously older than he does when I see them. 😉


    • yeah, the lines are really effective in humanizing him. I hope we get to see a few more of them.

      I don’t have many lines yet, either. Though I am sure they are right around the corner.


  2. Well, we all know he wants to be “uglied up” –not that his lines are ugly at all, but I think he does want more character actor-type roles where crinkles and wrinkles are allowed more often. ; ) rather than the sleek spy with otherworldly beauty or the the unbelievably good-looking (and non-sun burned) soldier (NOT that I would change a thing about Porter, you understand).

    I have started on a weight loss regimen, and one thing I worry about is the potential aging effect on my face, Some people look so much older to me after they have lost a lot of weight, especially if they aren’t spring chickens to begin with. *raises hand*
    I believe it has been said at a certain point in life, a woman must choose between her face and her backside looking good.
    Let’s hope it doesn’t all collapse LOL


    • Good luck on the new regimen, Ang! Tomorrow being August 1, I am determined to revamp my extremely poor eating habits once and for all. I need to substitute another vice – Porter addiction maybe? Every time I feel the urge to eat something, I watch Strikeback instead? Worth a try.


      • Perhaps when tempted to eat something forbidden, I should stop and visualize Lucas sucking the chocolate from the doughnuts off his fingers. 😉 And thanks!


    • I hope you achieve what you want, Angie 🙂


  3. Thank you, Servetus, for this insightful scan. It gives me the impression of one of RA’s very rich acting moments. As if he is closing down his inner emotions to be able to cope with the negative thing he is doing by lighting the bomb. One of RA’s brilliant acting moments caught in one picture.


    • absolutely. And when you see it on screen it’s only for an instant so you get a feeling much more than an analytical reaction to it. Masterful.


  4. Sometimes I wonder if his hair is starting to thin up top. But it’s quickly followed by “stop being silly”, “nah it’s just that he needs a top up of the black dye” and “you’re imagining things”.

    Please don’t hate me. *ducks*


  5. […] trading cards and something called a costume card. I see some of this stuff in bookstores, and even buy some of the publications. July 2011 saw not only the Captain America premiere, but also Hobbit vlog #4. A big month for […]
