Check out the totally awesome retro 'Captain America' poster

One of the main reasons that I’m hopeful about next month’s Captain America film is that the previews seem to indicate that the movie will feature a propaganda-perfect retro aesthetic: Rocketeer-brown military jackets, sci-fi apparatuses that look straight out off a pulp sci-fi book cover, and, best of all, Cap’s pouch-heavy costume. So I’m totally digging the special limited-edition poster that Marvel Studios printed for the film. Initially given only to the cast and crew, the poster was part of a giveaway at the Hero Complex Film Festival. Illustrated by artist Paolo Rivera, the poster has the burnished look of an Old Hollywood poster – think Casablanca, except with a red-faced dude. The best part is how the poster recreates the very first issue of Captain America, with the all-American hero punching ol’ Uncle Adolf right in the kisser. Take that, fascism!
