Fanboy Fix: Full Captain America Trailer, Superman Casting and More

New Captain America Trailer Arrives Online

Ah, finally – the full-length trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger has arrived online, sans annoying voiceover, and it’s a thing of beauty. We’re loving the transformation Chris Evans takes on from skinny, wimpy kid to hulking super soldier, and we especially love the look of this film – from the vintage, World War II backdrop, to the freaky Red Skull villain played by Hugo Weaving. Yes, trailers are supposed to get you excited – and there are a lot of trailers that look great even though the finished product is a let-down – but it’s hard to ignore all the exciting vibes this film is leaking out with each new piece of footage. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22nd.



Superman Casting Rumor: Edgar Ramirez Wanted for Villain
Now that Viggo Mortensen is definitely not involved in the new Superman movie, more names are beginning to crop up. We know Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder are hard at work casting villains and female love interests for their new Superman, Henry Cavill, and we know that Supes adoptive earthbound parents will be played by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. What we don’t know is who will be taking on this other roles, though Latino Review says Edgar Ramirez is one actor who’s now being considered for a villain role that may or may not be General Zod.
Ramirez’s star shot up the Hollywood ranks recently after he starred in the critically-acclaimed Carlos, leading to a major role in Clash of the Titans 2 and, quite possibly, a part in Zack Snyder’s Superman. Expect more casting announcements soon, but in the meantime: Would Ramirez make for a good Superman bad guy?
Check Out This Weird, Real-Life Eye of Sauron
Fans of Lord of the Rings might dig this freaky Eye of Sauron that was created by Technology Studio in the UK. They hacked an Xbox Kinect and used a Putterfish globe-projection system to create a real-life version of that all-knowing evil eye that brings the smackdown to our heroic fellowship as they assist Frodo in his adventures to destroy the ring. Check out video of this thing below … but don’t let it see you!
