Martin Asbury, storyboard artist, illustrator and strip cartoonist, recently updated his official site with storyboards for an action sequence in Marvel's much-anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger. The storyboards, featuring the avenger in combat with several pilots & the menacing Red Skull, also further reveals a nod to Thor's universe, and potentially spoils aspects of the film's ending. With a Spoiler Warning, check them out below!

Be sure to read the captions on the right, if you haven't already done so. And evidently, while it's possible these storyboards may not go down in the actual film, it's quite interesting. What do you think? Special thanks to Ed Mazmanian for the heads up!

UPDATE: Looks like these storyboards are confirmed to be legitimate... Drop below the censored pic to read a detailed description of what they showed.



The storyboards are reminiscent of the classic action ending to Cappy's stint in WWII before he gets dumped into the ocean to be frozen for preservation into the modern day (when the Avengers find him). There are a few differences in that Bucky is nowhere to be found, and the Red Skull is shown triggering the cosmic cube--probably used as a more plausible time travel device than cryogenics. They show Captain America (Chris Evans) boarding a large bomber plane in order to confront The Red Skull (Hugo Weaving). The Skull’s goons attack, Cap fights his way to the cockpit of the plane, and that’s where things get good:

1.When Cap approaches The Skull, the villain is in some sort of trance, being bathed in a “screaming light.” This light is directly referenced as emanating from The Cosmic Cube.

2.The Light from the Cube gives The Skull freaky otherworldly visions. There’s direct reference made to him seeing “The Nine Realms.”

3.The storyboards end with the cube “overloading” and blasting a hole through the top of the bomber jet.

There are still plenty of sites still carrying the images, and last we checked Asbury's site is too, so you can still see this if you want to.


Captain America: The First Avenger focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, the film releases July 22, 2011.

DaenerysTargaryen - 6/1/2011, 1:02 PM

marvel72 - 6/1/2011, 1:22 PM
that looks fantastic,it might be the ending.

but don't we all know how cap gets frozen in ice.
CaptainEpic - 6/1/2011, 1:23 PM
@Jefferys Two words... Cosmic Cube.
dmm5 - 6/1/2011, 1:24 PM
@Jefferys- Cosmic Cube

Did he just open the nine realms?.... (jizz)
JackBauer - 6/1/2011, 1:27 PM
Damn! I wish I hadn't looked at that!
Crowskyler - 6/1/2011, 1:29 PM
Wait. Why did they let someone post the end of their movie? 'Cause it sure looks like it.

Hellsing - 6/1/2011, 1:30 PM
can't wait to see it in live action. Thats not end of the movie, the ends on Youtube
thecheetoman2004 - 6/1/2011, 1:31 PM
If the Cube opens up the Nine Realms, then that's how Thor will make it back to Earth in The Avengers. Because the end credits scene had Selvig, Fury, and the Cube.
Hellsing - 6/1/2011, 1:36 PM
Bucky's not on the bomber, please tell me there not going the ultimate route with bucky that would be a total waste of the character, which would mean no winter soldier. I thought Sebastian Stan was signed a four picture deal.

The last storyboard is a shot of the audience with tears in there eyes and then them clapping at what an amazing piece of drama this movie is
CaseyJones1 - 6/1/2011, 1:56 PM
looks bad ass
batmanrises - 6/1/2011, 2:06 PM
Dope. This isn't much of a spoiler to fans who know about how Cap gets frozen, except for the cosmic cube part.
Kaedus - 6/1/2011, 2:07 PM
This is kind of a ridiculous idea because it would be the UNiverse's greatest ever coincidence lol, but hey ho, I'll share...

Red Skull is teleported into the Nine Realms at the end of Cap.
In the Avengers when Loki returns it is revealed he has an accomplice...the Red Skull...brought into the modern world.

Haha, yeah I didn't think so either...
superotherside - 6/1/2011, 2:09 PM
awesome can't wait! now this will be the CBM of this year!
plasticman - 6/1/2011, 2:14 PM
@ Kaedus- I think that is the direction that this is going. This could link Loki and Red Skull together.

Thank you ahead of time for no spoiler warning. Its not like I care that much but I do like to know when I am getting a spoiler instead of instant spoilage.
level1paladin - 6/1/2011, 2:15 PM
Good thing I scanned this and didnt really read it.
plasticman - 6/1/2011, 2:29 PM
Seeing a spoiler warning makes it all better. I am content.
Ghostt - 6/1/2011, 2:48 PM
@ Kaedus

That is what I thought...and believe. Loki and Skull for the Avengers. right on
THORION76 - 6/1/2011, 3:00 PM
Why the HELL did i read this.? This crap is just like driving by a bad wreck and you say to yourself don't look but you do. This movie is going to be EPIC and to all of you NAZI, COMIE, SOCIALIST, AMERICA HATEING BASTICHES all i gotta say is CAPTAIN AMERICA F*#K YEA.
Kaedus - 6/1/2011, 3:12 PM
I do think The Avengers would be cool if it involved a Loki/Red Skull team-up plus another, new villain.
The Red Skull would only have a very minor role in that though, so as not to make it too similar to the previous movies. t'd just be a cool way of explaining him coming into the modern world. Maybe done via an after credit scene, although I'd rather that be used to set up an entirely new character. Either way, just a cool musing lol.
Imtooldforthis - 6/1/2011, 3:24 PM
Using the cube, Loki brings back the Red Skull, together, they battle the Avengers???
capreborn - 6/1/2011, 3:53 PM
we all knew how it was gonna end (those of us who read the comics and know the history) we just need to see it in live action
Ghostfire - 6/1/2011, 4:01 PM
Aww Yeah!! This is fahqin' awesome!!
soaponapope - 6/1/2011, 5:19 PM
I hope it's changed because that ending is very predictable... It probably has. And I'm still looking forward to this movie as the years best comic book film
HULK2099 - 6/1/2011, 8:51 PM
Looks like when he's gonna get frozen
badnoct - 6/1/2011, 10:51 PM
I think many people will see this movie...because It screams epic adventure this will be the One...to end the summer believe It.
mbomb22 - 6/2/2011, 6:10 AM
I know i looked so i cant really say anything, but i kinda wish we could go back to a time when no one but the people involved knew what was happening in a movie until it came out.
comicb00kguy - 6/2/2011, 6:35 AM
Just one little thing: Where is Bucky? Bucky plays a pivotal role in this scene, if this is the climactic battle that will leave Cap frozen for sixty-five years. Whether he's being set up for the Winter Soldier storyline or he's just going to wind up blown up in tiny bits, Bucky's presence here is necessary for its effects on Cap once he's revived, and its overall impact on the Marvel universe. This is one of the milestone events in all of Marvel history, after all. I sincerely hope that this is only an early draft of things, and that we see Bucky in this scene.
siddhant1138 - 6/2/2011, 7:11 AM
stupid of the guy to put them up on his website, but this is one spoiler i didnt mind seeing.... i was on the fence about cap, i knew it would look great, but i wasnt sure theyd go all out.... now i know that they have. [frick] YEAH.
Jer3miah - 6/2/2011, 7:17 AM
Shoot, I missed it. Perhaps not such a bad thing, though. The comments sounds epic, but what of Bucky? He NEEDS to be there and tied thoroughly to the future.
