The most patriotic superhero ever hits the big screen on July 22 with the release of "Captain America: The First Avenger," and to prepare the citizenry for a satisfyingly jingoistic moviegoing experience, the Epix HD television channel has released two new featurettes about the movie, which stars "Fantastic 4" actor Chris Evans as the titular super-soldier.

Check out the clips below to watch Evans spill about his character's alter-ego, Steve Rogers, and the movie's cast and crew discuss the difficulties of creating a period piece — with plenty of gunfire and explosive action.
