Based on the Marvel comics action hero, 'Captain America' explores how the super hero got his start. Starring Matt Sallinger as the title character, the movie begins with Steve Rogers, A.K.A. Captain America, trying to enlist in the Army during World War II. Finally, he is accepted and begins boot camp, however, he is unaware that he is being observed as a potential subject for an enhancement experiment that the government is conducting. Steve agrees to the experiment in the hopes of being able to help the government as well as the possibility of improving himself, physically. The experiment is a success and Steve gains muscles, height, and strength and becomes the United States new secret weapon, Captain America.
Captain America soon learns that the reason for the United States conducting the experiment is because the Nazis have conducted a similar experiment, the results of which produced the Red Skull. Cap, backed by the military, sneaks into Germany in an attempt to stop the Red Skull's plans and manages somewhat to succeed, however, the catch is that, in his attempts, he finds himself strapped to a rocket that is launched and lands in Antartica, where he is frozen in suspended animation. Cap remains frozen for almost 50 years until he is discovered in a block of ice during an expedition.
It doesn't take very long for a group that is led by Cap's enemy, Red Skull, to discover that Cap is still alive and has returned. Cap tries to adjust to the new world that he has found himself in and soon discovers that his services are once more needed, when the President is kidnapped by Red Skull. Once more donning his costume, he sets out to rescue the President and stop Red Skull from destroying the world using nuclear weapons. Cap succeeds in deterring the missiles, rescuing the President and destroying the Red Skull.
The iconic actor is reportedly considering a role in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," where he would outrank Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury in S.H.I.E.L.D.
