Check out the retro Captain America poster the cast got as a gift

Sure, the official poster for Captain America: The First Avenger was spiffy, but it turns out the one we'll never get to see in theaters is even better!

Once production on the upcoming movie wrapped, Marvel printed up 100 copies of the special poster above to hand out to the cast and crew as a way of saying thanks, and we've got to admit that the retro look makes the film seem like it'll be a heck of a lot more fun than that earlier somber image we'll be walking by with our artery-clogging tubs of buttered popcorn.

Which of the two do YOU like better?

Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22, 2011.
