Captain America Movie Title Changed to The First Avenger in Certain Countries


The LA Times’ Hero Complex blog is reporting that Marvel insiders have informed them that Captain America: The First Avenger will have its name truncated to just The First Avenger, when it gets released in Russia, South Korea and Ukraine.

The choice was made by Marvel, Paramount Pictures’ international team and distributors in those three countries based on market research results. According to the article, those involved in the decision are being careful to frame the move as a matter of brand management and consumer awareness and not as a decision tilted by cultural or political winds.

Hmm, I’m not sure that I buy that last line. Still, if they are doing this to make it seem a little less flag waving, they might want to do something about his costume, which is basically just a US flag!

I bet the right wing nut jobs will have a field day with this one!
