Staring Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, and Dominic Cooper, Captain America: The First Avenger will premier July 22nd. With a budget of $140 million, Captain America will be Marvels third and final film of 2011.
All together, Marvel has spent approximately $440 million on film budgets this year. Not even counting marketing campaigns.
The high price has paid off though. The two Marvel films which have already premiered, Thor and X-men: First Class, have [at the time of writing this article] raked in $435 million and $286 million respectively, and both were received very well by critics and overall fans alike.
Will Captain America be as equally well received? I believe so. Of the three Marvel films that we get this year, I have been most excited for Captain America.
Captain America and Thor are both precursors to the highly anticipated Avengers movie, which assembles next summer.
