"Cap" movie poster

Here's a first look at the "Captain America: The First Avenger" movie poster:

Not well known is the fact that the title of the film has been changed for predominately "progressive" areas of the country. In these, the film will be known by several alternate monikers:

  • "Captain America: The First Oppressor"
  • "Captain Racism: The First Slaveholder"
  • "Captain Genocide: The First Mass Murderer"
  • "Captain Chauvinist: The First Rapist"
  • "Captain Hetero: The First Homophobe"

In San Francisco and Berkeley, the film will be known by all five titles simultaneously.

So afraid to see how PC this one is, I hope they don't ruin Cap. Great Titles, that pretty much sums it up. Damn I miss 80's Hollywood.

They actually did take "Captain America" out of the title for three foreign markets-Russia, the Ukraine, and South Korea. It will be known in those countries as simply "The First Avenger". Russia, I can see that, but South Korea?

By the way, the Red Skull looks cool as hell. If the movie is a hit, that will be a big Halloween mask.

PT: Yeah, I was aware of the title change for various markets, hence my little bit of humor for the "progressive" markets right here at home! :-)
