wish he was masked though.
Yeah. I do like the posters I'm seeing. Make no doubt. But it would be cool to see a few with the mask on. People, less familiar, do need to see what Captain America looks like complete.

He should be wearing his mask/helmet.

Ya know, I think Bucky Barnes looks pretty bad Arsed! I wonder if Marvel has maybe thought about doing a Winter Soldier movie at some point? They could leave a little plot thread for him in this Cap movie.:wink_y: Just an idea...but I think it would be pretty COOL! Kind of like a Jason Bourne movie.

so tired of the need for stars to appear unmasked to feed the ego, a trend that seemed to start with Spider-Man. Like Chris Evans is a big recognizable face anyway.

IMO it isn't something that Actor demands in his contract...but more of a choice by the Director or the Studio...to let us see their faces so we can see their emotions.
But yeah...I really got sick of seeing Spiderman getting his mask torn off.:muh:

I was going to agree with The Bat and say I think it's more a studio/marketing thing than something the actors are pushing for. It is possible that details of their contracts that require things like where the actor's name is on the poster also require their face to be visible. Hard to say.
During the movie in Spider-Man my guess is that it just made more sense for the actor's faces to be visible for the bigger scenes so they could show emotion. It's kinda hard to make that emotional connection with the audience with cloth covering your whole head - they can't cheat (like they do in the comics) by giving his mask different expressions. Anyway - just my take.

Using faces in marketing is nothing new. The general rule I have heard of—and observed—is when a movie gets consumer DVD/BluRay/VHS packaging, the artwork is changed to highlight the faces of the players in the film since faces work better for small-scale packaging marketing. For the initial release, the poster is broader, more detailed and not so “face focused” unless it’s some character driven film or a rom-com.
So with that in mind this poster is kind of weird. Wonder what the logic was?
