As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
Samuel L. Jackson,
When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.
Robert Downey Jr.,
Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
It is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erskine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erskine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's secret HYDRA research department (headed by Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull), Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot; however, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America, and his war against Schmidt begins.

(at around 11 mins) In the exhibition, there is a mannequin in a red jumpsuit under a glass dome. That is a reference to the android, the original Human Torch, the first superhero created by Timely Comics (October 1939), which eventually became Marvel Comics. He was also part of The Invaders along with Namor and Captain America. Marvel Comics recycled the name and abilities with the Fantastic Four's Johnny Storm (1961). Chris Evans portrayed Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the first two 'Fantastic Four' films. See more »
(at around 1h 5 mins) After Schmidt reveals his true face in the Hydra base to Captain America, the two begin their first fight scene. It's here that Red Skull displays his super strength and punches Captain America's steel shield leaving a fist impression in the metal. The two keep fighting but the fist impression is no longer on the shield. Later at HQ, when Stark pats the shield and remarks how Rogers is attached to it, the punch impression is there again.

As I remembered the versions of 1979 (TV movies with Reb Brown) or the
lame version of 1991 with Matt Salinger, I was just hoping this time,
this movie will do good with Captain America as the main subject.
And what a ride it was. I know that Captain America (Steve Rogers) was
a soldier, so expecting some war movie along with the superhero fare.
Joe Johnston not only caught the essence of the American Hero, but this
time, no bulked up effects nor fake violence. This is really the Marvel
hero and first Avenger who we are seeing here...
All the actors were good in it. Very surprised to see Hugo Weaving
doing a believable Red Skull (I remember the one in 1991 was
horrible...) and when you see Tommy Lee Jones doing army stuff, we
gotta believe it, he gives depth...
Chris Evans gives Steve Rogers/Captain America a brand new perspective,
far from Reb Brown's botched up costume or Matt Salinger's bland
personification. Hope he keeps the momentum in "The Avengers"...
And of course, the "Stan Lee" moment is not to be missed with a quip
from the creator himself...
