The first ever Captain America: The First Avenger teaser trailer debuted tonight and, even if you’ve seen it, you haven’t really seen it. Though the teaser’s only thirty-seconds long there’s no way you can take it all in just by hitting play on our trailer page. We’re here to help.
We’ve broken down the Cap trailer into thirty-two pretty amazing high-res still shots taken directly from it, to let you get an up and close personal look at everything going on within it. Before you check out the full gallery of images at the bottom of the post there, here’s a quick look at a few things worth noting from the trailer.
First, a closer look at Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) transformation from skinny loser to muscle-bound hero. It’s pretty a pretty incredible FX shot, akin to some of the stuff pulled off in Benjamin Button with Brad Pitt. Take a look:

A lot of people don’t seem to remember it, but this isn’t the first time Captain America has been turned into a movie. The last time Steve Rogers shows up in feature film it was 1990 and that movie, like this movie, featured Cap battling his nemesis Red Skull. Both Captain America and Red Skull are in the new trailer, here’s a side by side comparison of those characters as seen in the 1991 movie and the new movie, to illustrate how much he’s changed.
