Big Apple Armitage: New York City Captain America Screening

Yesterday, a Captain America film event took place at the Loews Lincoln Square Theaters in Manhattan.

It seems that this was an “advance screening” as opposed to a “premiere” event. If I still lived in New York City, I would have been crushed to have missed this under-the-radar public appearance.

None of the major American cast members were in attendance, but who needs Americans when you’ve got Armitage—open collar casual Armitage.

After flying in from Los Angeles, he must have been exhausted. But he still has that twinkle.

It’s very sweet how he stands off to the side in group pictures and when onstage with others so that he is not the center of attention. So courteous. (see photos at richardarmitagenet.com)

Oh Yeah: Armitage In Tom Ford and Similarities to Colin Firth, Plus Armitage + HeathRA Encounter

Armitage fashion speculation became reality: Armitage wore a Tom Ford suit for the Captain America premiere.

Well done. Another sign that he is walking the Colin Firth path.

Armitage vs. Firth Similarities:

A. Gains legions of fans in a BBC period drama miniseries in the role of a misunderstood, darkly handsome suitor to a headstrong young woman (North and South vs. Pride and Prejudice)

B. Stars in a Minghella-related project where his character is in love with a woman who desires the leading man (Robin Hood vs. The English Patient)

C. Stars in a Richard Curtis romantic comedy as a man from London who falls in love with a woman in the country (The Vicar of Dibley vs. Love Actually)

D. Has the leading role of a king facing a great impediment (dragon vs. stutter) in a major ensemble film surrounded by distinguished British and Australian actors (The Hobbit vs. The King’s Speech)

All signs point to an Oscar!

Do enjoy this heart-stopping photo of Armitage at the CA premiere shared by HeathRA, who was able to meet Armitage. (richardarmitagenet.com will be posting more of her photos soon.)

She manages one of my favorite YouTube channels (HeathDances); she creates and shares a plethora of RA videos, including the delicious “SexyBack” compilations.

I first discovered her work through this beautiful Pride and Prejudice film video a few years ago. If only I had clicked to see why she was making all of those Richard Armitage videos. . .

ADDED NOTE: heathravideos Twitter feed with picture links and delicious details on meeting Armitage.

Just remembered: she made him the Guy of Gisborne Havoc Tour shirt! And he still has it! Aww, this is the best fan meeting EVER.

The Havoc Tour shirt design on her website. Brilliant!

Armitage On the Red Carpet at the Captain America Premiere

The beard has crossed the pond.

The beard looks good in a suit. Nice wide check tie: Burberry perhaps?

The beard with sunglasses.

The beard speaks!

The Marvel interviewer has done some Armitage research prep. And she pronounces his name correctly.

Classic. Apparently “shout-out” is an Americanism. Armitage is a good sport.
