Last week featured big news for Marvel fans eagerly awaiting next year's star spangled heroic movie Captain America: The First Avenger. Not only was the cover to the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly revealed featuring Chris Evans as Cap on the cover, but so were photos from the movie itself featuring more shots of Evans in his starring role, as well as his fellow cast members like Hugo Weaving as The Red Skull. As such, details were inevitably going to follow, and sure enough, movie blog site Screen Rant has the scoop on plot highlights from the movie. Of course, SPOILERS are going to be there, so I won't note down the specifics. Obviously, the movie will be set in World War II and will be an origin story... but there's a lot more to it as well that will simply leave fans excited for what's to come, especially with the build up to the forthcoming Avengers film in 2012. Also, the movie will undergo a slight title change when it gets relased internationally, omitting "Captain America" and going by "The First Avenger" instead. This is obviously to make audiences in non-US territories connect the movie with Avengers better, but personally, I think Captain America is the one true label that should stick.
