First off? No boobs. Sorry! And even when I use the word “trailer”, that’s only half correct. Either way, this week we got a chance to see the first actual footage from Captain America: The First Avenger, which was a commercial during the Super Bowl. I didn’t see it as it was airing, because we were watching the Puppy Bowl. Here is the Captain America teaser trailer for those of you who haven’t seen it yet:
Not much to comment on, other than: COOL! We get to see Steve Rogers as a scrawny little weakling, which I have a feeling was done as CGI similarly to how they made Tobey Maguire look like a pussy in the first Spider-Man. We’ve seen pictures of Evans bulked up, and he looks huge, so he at least looks the part. I am still undecided on how I feel about the Red Skull…don’t get me wrong, Hugo Weaving is awesome, and seeing him as an asshole Nazi will be awesome, but the first images we see of him with an actual red skull, well, I’m undecided. I’m especially undecided because they show him pulling off a mask to reveal the red skull, which makes me think the skull won’t be a mask in the continuity of the story, and the skull itself didn’t look realistic. Other than that the teaser looks pretty good, but there’s not quite enough material to determine. Now here’s the first teaser trailer for X-Men: First Class:
Pretty cool! The last two X-Men films were a little underwhelming, so my hopes were low for this film. And although they were trying to remain faithful to the comics with the X-Men suits they were wearing, they looked a little silly. Other than that, this trailer looks promising. We get to see Erik Lensher, a.k.a. Magneto, and Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X, acting as some sort of covert task force for the government during World War II. Pretty neat concept, and knowing that Bryan Singer is behind this gives me even more hope. We get glimpses of some of the other characters, most notably a younger Mystique, which establishes her relationship with Magneto, and we also see Emma Frost establishing the fact that she’s a hottie. Unfortunately, the whole “turning skin into diamonds” is an effect that might never really look cool, so hopefully we get to see her skin a lot more…wait! That sounded like I want her to be naked! Oh my Cthulhu, how embarrassing!
EDIT: SPEAKING OF EMBARRASSING, IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT BRYAN SINGER STOPPED BEING INVOLVED WITH THIS MOVIE, SO WHO GIVES A SHIT. YEAH, KICK-ASS WAS PRETTY GOOD, BUT IT WASN’T APT PUPIL. FUCK MY LIFE, I FEEL SO DUMB.
