“Captain America: The First Avenger” focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) 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 (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, which is led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).

One of a continuing slate of films being produced by Marvel Studios based on the Marvel characters, “Captain America: The First Avenger” joins “Thor” (which was released on May 6, 2011) and “The Avengers” (which is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2012).

How did captain america get his name?

Well, I don’t know for sure. I haven’t seen the movie. So give me tickets and I’ll know for sure :)

But, I think it has something to do because US wasn’t engaged in WWII yet, so it was a fictitious character created to fight the Nazis and build hope for Americans.

He got his name by............

The U.S government, disappointed at the loss of their planned super soldier army were determined to use Rogers to his fullest potential. To this end, they decided to use him as a superhero to fight the Nazis; to become a symbol of freedom and hope against Nazi forces as well as a counter-intelligence agent. He also would be their answer to and main weapon against the leader of the Nazi terrorist operations - the Red Skull. The U.S. Government gave him a costume based on the American flag, an unbreakable shield (given to him by President Franklin Roosevelt), a sidearm, and named Captain America. From that point on, Steve Rogers was Captain America. A short time later he was stationed on an army base in Virginia serving as private Steve Rogers.

Cap's name

Because the super-soldier formula was lost when Dr. Erskine was killed shortly after Steve Rogers received it, the U.S. government decided to make the most out of him by using him to fight the Nazis, becoming a symbol of freedom and hope. The government gave him an American-flag based costume along with an indestructible shield and sidearm and named him Captain America.

Captain America got his name

Captain America got his name by representing everything that America stands for. He is simply a hero.

CPT America

Ok without googling for a CORRECT answer… I’d guess it’s because he was created by the army to be a super-soldier for America?

Captain America's Name Origin

Name: Matthew Edwards

In 1940, writer Joe Simon conceived the idea for Captain America. He named it Super America in the beginning, but there were too many “Super’s” out there so he changed it to “Captain” since there was hardly any at that time.
