If you're looking for 'Captain America' movie quotes, you've come to the right place. This new Marvel movie is one of the better superhero films in recent years (yes, reviews were pretty good), and not surprisingly, it's highly quotable. If you missed this movie in theaters, you'll get a chance to see it on video soon: The 'Captain America' DVD was set for release on October 25, 2011. Don't see your favorite 'Captain America: The First Avenger' quote listed? Feel free to add it!
'Captain America: The First Avenger' stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, a man who volunteers for a super-secret military project that turns him into super soldier Captain America. Many of the 'Captain America' quotes come from Evans, as either Steve or, well, Captain America - but others come from Colonel Chester Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones), scientist Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Captain America's faithful friend and sidekick.
'Captain America' had a strong showing at the U.S. box office, taking in more than $65 million in its first weekend of release. The movie went on to gross well over $173 million (as of mid-September 2011). Definitely a hit!If you're looking for more blockbuster movie quotes, check out these gems from 'Moneyball,' 'Contagion,' 'Conan the Barbarian,' 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', 'X-Men: First Class', 'Super 8' and 'Green Lantern!'
Steve Rogers: "Why me?"
Dr. Abraham Erskine: "...because a weak man knows the value of strength, the value of power..."
A Good Man
Dr. Abraham Erskine: "Whatever happens, stay who you are...not just a soldier, but a good man."Dr. Erskine (Stanley Tucci) believes in Steve Rogers, clearly. He knows that it's more than just the physical - it's the heart of the person that makes the soldier (even a superhero soldier).
Steve Rogers: (showing his shield to Peggy) "What do you think?"
(Peggy shoots the shield)
Peggy Carter: "Yes, I think it works."
Wars Are Won By Men
Col. Chester Phillips: "General Patton has said that wars are fought with weapons but they are won by men. Our goal is to create the greatest army in history. But every army begins with one man. He will be the first in a new breed of super-soldier. We are going to win this war because we have the best men. And they, personally, will escort Adolf Hitler to the gates of Hell."With this statement, Colonel Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones) defines exactly what the plans are for Steve Rogers - he'll be the very first "super-soldier" and will, hopefully, allow the Army to successfully battle the Nazis.
