We found out last week that the new Marvel Studios film, Captain America: The First Avenger is headed to DVD and Blu-ray on, most likely, October 25th. Now, Shout! Factory brings word that they've got a special double-helping of Cap lined up one week earlier, albeit in a slightly campier fashion.
The 1970's TV movies Captain America and Captain America II: Death Too Soon are set to arrive in a double-feature set. Check out the official descriptions for both films along with a clip reel below!
Captain America (1979)
When former Marine Steve Rogers is in an accident, his only hope for recovery is an injection of the FLAG superserum — created years ago by his own father — which enhances each of his senses, as well as gives him great strength and fast reflexes. And to help him bring his attackers to justice, a government agency outfits him with a motorcycle and powerful shield, then turns the newly formed Captain America loose on the nation’s enemies.
Stars Reb Brown (Yor, The Hunter From The Future) and Len Birman
Captain America II: Death Too Soon (1979)
Captain America returns to carry on the legacy of his father and defend the country — this time, however, he faces off against the terrorist known only as Miguel and the threat of a chemical agent that rapidly ages those who come in contact with it.
Featuring Christopher Lee (Lord Of The Rings) as the villainous Miguel
