New Image from 'The Avengers' Shows a Frozen Captain America

Posted by G-Man (39571 posts) - - Show Bio

It's hard to believe that The Avengers is coming to theaters really soon. May 4 will soon be here and we'll all be able to see Earth's Mightiest Heroes on the big screen. While we've seen a couple cool trailers already, this image did send some chills down my spine (no pun intended...okay, maybe a little pun was intended).

It's interesting that this scene will be in the movie since we saw Cap in the modern age meeting up with Nick Fury in the after credits portion of Captain America: The First Avenger.

Will this be a flashback or are they going to start the movie from this point?

My guess this will be a Flashback

Considering they found him in a block of ice in Avengers back in the 60s and again in Ultimates, doing it in the movie is fitting. Flashback or not, either way is fine for me.

Well considering Cap was already found off-screen in his own movie near the end, it would seem so.

I guess that the beginning of this movie overlaps with the end of captain america

I put my money on flashback. Otherwise this scene just doesn't make any sense. Gosh, 7 weeks away still. So much can happen in 7 weeks! :(

Maybe there will be a mixed flashback with some of the origins of the characters.Some porn of tony, some smash of bruce and so much sleep of steve-o-freeze. :P

Let's hope these guys know what their doing, it's not like defrosting a turkey on thanksgiving.

Imagine if Cap pooped his pants before he was frozen. The look on the face of the scientists', as they defrost him, not knowing which one of them cut the cheese, when in reality it's the 60 year old turd lying in Steve's trousers. That would be priceless. I might have even considered watching this movie.

When un-thawed from the arctic wasteland, Steve Rogers asked Commander Nick Fury to 'please re-freeze me', and that is how Ice-Man was born.

Or if the were moving him around and such while he was frozen and * crack * oops, there goes Steve's hand. Doctor casually put's a ski glove on the wrist and announces he has an undisclosed emergency elsewhere.

This is going to be so cool, I thought that maybe they would skip this entire bit and just continue where the Captain Americe movie left off.

So for a while I thought that the new ridiculous look of Cap may be attributed to the fact that when they found him his costume was torn to shreds and hence unusable. Meaning, he would HAVE to use something new as a costume. But now I'm actually upset (slightly) because there is no logical explanation (in the story) that would explain that atrocious costume and why they didn't just stick with the older one. While it's not that great, design wise it's much better on the eyes than this new look. Now he just looks like a blue condom.

: I refuse to read the article or look at the image, but I must express my annoyance, Tony. Now I know that it's yours, as well as the rest of the Staff's job to report comic related news, but as someone who hates being spoiled and who's been trying his best these past few months to not spoil The Avengers through trailers or images, I'm really annoyed at how you guys just posted this image right there even before you click the article. I know it shouldn't be that big of a deal, but I feel like today you actually see the movie through all of the images and trailers before the movie is even actually out in theaters. And because of that I find this really frustrating because I had NO IDEA this would be in the movie and would have been a big surprise to me upon entering the theater. But next thing I know, I get on ComicVine and BAM! You guys post it for the whole world to see.

I just would like to ask, for the fans who actually try to keep themselves spoiled-free, that when posting an article like this if you guys could please take a bit more consideration and give those who are waiting to see the movie a chance to not be instantly spoiled by simply looking through the site's news articles.
