Comic-Con 2010: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER Panel and Footage Description

I was looking forward to the Marvel Panel, but I didn't think we would see any footage of Captain America, but we did! And I thought it was great! Here is the description of the panel.

Kevin Feige, the head of production at Marvel Studios, comes out first and says "everyone has to be assembled properly" for all the movie and that means the first Avenger's story needs to be told and that means..."Captain America: The First Avenger."

We then get a great short little preview which ends with Evans in the cap costume in shadow. There is then a fun teasing moment where Evans turns to reveal his face in costume and then finally, there is a scene where he throws his famous shield to the camera.  The fans go nuts!

The director of the film Joe Johnston and stars Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving come up on stage.

Evans admits that playing the role of the cap is a little intimidating, a little daunting. he said “I think if I focus on it too much, I'll have a panic attack." The actor says filming started only five days ago, but adds "The suits fantastic and it's a thrill."

Weaving then talks about his mask as the Red Skull saying "I feel like I'm only a little bit into getting the mask to work."

Feige then asks the crowed if we wanted to see what they shot last week. Of course we did! So they showed it! 

Footage Description:

The footage focuses on Weaving character of the Red Skull, before he’s the Red Skull, and Asgards cosmic cube? 

The Clip showed an unmasked Red Skull that is marches his military in to loot a tomb in a castle, which belongs to Odin. There's a nod to the Cosmic Cube, which is a staple of the Captain America comics. 

The Skull finds a hidden compartment in the tomb with a box inside and he opens it. An old man in the tomb warns the Skull that man was not meant to see what's inside. "Exactly," answers the Skull. 

The stuff I saw at this panel got me very excited for the film! I can't wait to see more!
