In 2011, Chris Evans traded in the ability to burst into flames for a nearly indestructible shield and switched from one blue bodysuit to another in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Steve Rogers would become the last member of the team we met before Marvel’s The Avengers changed the cinematic world as we know it. Decades before he would become one of the leaders of the Avengers, he was the focus of his own solo film where we got to learn about his origin story and what he did before being frozen in a glacier.
Captain America: The First Avenger also introduced us to Hydra, the origins of S.H.I.E.L.D., James “Bucky” Barnes, and Agent Peggy Carter, now the star of her own television series. Given that’s it’s been four years and six films since we first met the Captain, take this opportunity to look through some of the best lines from Captain America: The First Avenger. The fact that today is July 4th only sweetens the pot.
