Captain America: The First Avenger is coming out this summer and is sure to be a great movie but back in 1990 Marvel released a Direct-to-Video Captain America movie. Starring Matt Salinger as Captain America, the movie follows Steve Rogers becoming Captain America during World War II to battle the Red Skull, being frozen in ice, and subsequently being revived to save the President of the United States from a crime family that dislikes his environmentalist polices. You can check out the original trailer for the movie on YouTube below.
The 1990 movie version of Captain America is coming up on Blu-ray in May, just in time for the theatrical release of Captain America: The First Avenger. The movie will be presented in a director’s cut with 30 additional minutes of footage. According to director Albert Pyun, it will be “more character-oriented and less super hero action.”
