CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER Comic Con 2010 Panel (With Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, and more)
The CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER Comic Con 2010 panel featured Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving and director Joe Johnston.
During the panel, the audience was shown a teaser, and when I say teaser, I mean teaser. It was a lot of filler footage from World Ward II and then we sort of got a glimpse at Chris Evans in Captain America costume, but turns out that footage of Chris Evans was the costume test. Yet the audience went nuts.
In addition to that teaser, we also got a chance to take a look at some very rough footage (it still had the timecode on) that was shot the previous week featuring Hugo Weaving as Johann Shmidt who is looking for “The Tesseract,” which he ends up finding at the end of the clip.
Overall, the footage shown wasn’t too exciting at least not for someone like me who’s not really familiar with the Captain America mythology. Hopefully, we’ll get to see more exciting footage soon.
Here are some of the highlights from the Captain America: The First Avenger Comic Con 2010 panel:
– They are doing an origin story for Captain America, which Chris Evans said he enjoyed.
– So far Chris Evans hasn’t been in the real Captain America suit, but only test versions because the suit is not finished yet. “It is something that is unequivocally the Captain America uniform but fits the time period.”
– Hugo Weaving listened to tapes of Werner Herzog in order to help him get the voice of Red Skull.
– So far Hugo Weaving has only worked one day in the Red Skull mask and he’s only starting to get used to it.
That’s all for the highlights, but you can also watch a short video featuring some of the high points of Captain America: The First Avenger at Comic Con 2010 below and enjoy more photos from the panel.
