[Update: Check out a new Captain America poster!]
Almost every day of this week, we’ve received another piece of the Marvel Studios puzzle that is the marketing strategy behind Captain America: The First Avenger. With a new Chris Evans magazine cover shot, our first look at his World War II pal, Bucky Barnes, and now several new magazine images, all is leading towards Super Bowl weekend where the Captain America trailer will debut.
The latest batch of photos depict some of what you may have already seen this week (but in higher resolution) and some are entirely new, showcasing some characters, scenes and costumes that have yet to be revealed.
The main batch of Captain America stills come from the current issue of Empire magazine. Their main shot gives another good luck at Chris Evans in full costume (helmet included) and the others give us a first look at Tommy Lee Jones as Colonel Phillips, a few Hydra infantrymen, the room where Stanley Tucci’s character, Dr. Abraham Erskine, performs Operation Rebirth to make Steve Rogers a Super-Soldier and several others.
We’ve also included the new larger shot of Bucky Barnes that first came from our report on Hero Complex’s interview with director Joe Johnston on the character.
Update: Finally, here’s a new Captain America poster that’s been released in anticipation of the First Avenger trailer, which will air during the 2011 Super Bowl:
