Cap Synopsis

From Production Weekly to Newsarama, the official plot synopsis for Captain America or First Avenger whatever you want to call it is out.

“Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment … Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the ‘Super-Soldier Serum’ and bombarded by ‘vita-rays.’ Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers.”

Glad that he learns from training in the military, not just one injection and BOOM! He’s instantly experienced soldier. No mention of Red Skull (assuming he’s the main villain) cause I don’t see him showing up in Avengers.

In Ultaverse, they revealed that Fury has a sample of the serum as well, so does this mean we’ll see Samuel in WW2 or do we have to wait till the end of the movie, where Rogers has thawed out and recruited for The Initiative? Either way, I’m all for Cap.
