The First Avenger: Captain America

Marvel is flying high on the box office of "Iron Man" and looking forward to "The Incredible Hulk." Both films are also setting up a Captain America movie for 2011. In "The Incredible Hulk" the villain The Abomination is created using the Super Soldier Serum, which created Captain America. And if you watch the "Iron Man" movie, watch the scene where Tony says "Let's face it, this is not the worst thing you've caught me doing!" If you look closely, you can see Captain America's shield in the background.
