While we've made it pretty clear that "X-Men: First Class" is the best looking comic book film of the summer, we'll definitely give "Captain America: The First Avenger" a firm second place (sorry "Green Lantern" and "Thor," you both look too dorky to place). The Super Bowl teaser was a surprising amount of fun and while we await a full length trailer -- pretty lame "descriptions" have been floating around if that wets your dock --- we have a new peek at the villain.

Marvel is wasting no time on the continued expansion of their onscreen universe, and they've got a lot of projects on the go, but they must like what they're seeing in "Captain America: The First Avenger" as Latino Review reports that writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, have been hired back to pen a sequel. Man, they really want to crank these things out. While there were some whispers that McFeely and Markus had their work punched up by Joss Whedon, the extent of that (if it happened) is unknown and if we had to wager a guess, we'd say that Whedon might've been merely been doing continuity touch-ups to allow "Captain America" to fit with "The Avengers."

With the first look at "Captain America: The First Avenger" during the Superbowl last night proving surprisingly decent, our hopes are slightly higher for the film; not hard, admittedly, considering how dismal its big superhero competition looks this summer, but the spot was confident and tonally assured, and we're now a little more optimistic that the picture could turn out to be some old-fashioned fun, even if creepy Benjamin Button-ed Chris Evans could be something of a stumbling block.

Marvel's promotional engine for "Captain America: The First Avenger" is beginning to kick into high gear with a new poster, and the implication that this film is also serving as an advertisement for 2012's "The Avengers." How else to explain the complete absence of Captain America's name in favor of the "Avenge" tagline? Marvel's been gunshy about using 'America' in conjunction with the marketing, but, c'mon, this is a seventy year old character that remains popular today. Given what we know of the plot - Cap and Bucky teaming to stop the Red Skull from retrieving the magical Cosmic Cube - what exactly is being avenged?

In the Captain America comic books, Bucky Barnes was a kid sidekick, a plucky gee-gosh-willikers remnant of a more naive time. But in the upcoming "Captain America: The First Avenger," Marvel hopes you're ready for a tougher, grittier Bucky, as seen in the photo above (and in full below) revealed by Hero Complex. Describing the approach to the character as a "Band of Brothers"-inspired take, director Joe Johnston suggests a serious deviation from the source material.

'Captain America' To be Retitled For Certain International MarketsJust a day after we received word that Marvel was eyeing a writer for a "Black Panther" movie, rumblings persist that they also have an as-yet-unidentified writer on board a "War Machine" spin-off. At least according to star Don Cheadle, currently at Sundance promoting "The Guard." "They're developing it now, they're working on that," Cheadle said, "I think they've hired a writer, so we'll see how it goes. It would be a lot of fun."
