The Muppets: Sam Eagle is Captain America

I love the Muppets. I love their rips on other movies. I really love this new poster for The Muppets which as Sam Eagle as Captain America. That’s just genius.

The movie follows Walter, the biggest Muppet fan on the planet, attempting to round up the old crew and get them back together after their retirement from the Muppet Show, in order to save their old studio from destruction by the villain Tex Richman.

The film is directed by James Bobin with a script by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller. In addition to all your favourite Jim Henson creations the film also stars the real-life actors Segel, Amy Adams and Chris Cooper.

The Muppets will be released in the US on November 23rd, with Ireland lagging behind on February 17th.


The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made is about Gary, Mary, and Walter (a man, his girlfriend, and the man’s life-long nondescript, brown puppet best friend) getting the old Muppet gang – now retired entertainers known for the same Muppet show we know them from – together to save the TV studio that the original show was shot in. A villain, Tex Richman, bent on drilling for oil underneath the studio, is due to take over the studio in weeks, and the only way to stop him? Putting on a show that draws ten million viewers.”
