The First Avenger: Captain America (2011)

Because of the more limited number of details available at this time regarding the future Captain America Movie (The First Avenger: Captain America), I suppose it would be more acurate to call this a mini-hub. (a Mib or a Mub? lol)

So, what do we know so far?

Well so far we know the following:

  • It has a scheduled release date of May 6th, 2011 which is quite a push back from the earlier planned release date of 2009: it is possible the writer's strike which affected several projects inHollywood recently may have been a factor here since Marvel has admitted that the strike delayed the start of production on some of the company's other in-house projects.
  • The Captain America movie now has a Director confirmed for the project: Joe Johnston, whose credits include such films as Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, and Hidalgo.
  • It has been heavily rumoured that the film will be something of a period piece set during World War II; this leads one to wonder about how they will bring the character to the modern day - whether it will be handled during this movie or left as a plot thread to be tied up in the subsequent Marvel avengers movie scheduled to be released in July of 2011.
  • At least one actor has expressed some interest in the leading role but would not confirm in an interview whether or not he had actually been approached by Marvel for the part; Neal McDonough brought up the role of Captain America in a recent interview when mentioning the kind of role he might consider for future projects. At the same time, at least one A-list Hollywood actor has come out and publicly stated that he has no real interest in the role; Actor Will smith has suggested that he doesn't see Captain America as being something he would be involved in, even though individuals such as Stan Lee have expressed interest in the idea of Captain America being one of the future Will Smith movies
  • The recent Incredible Hulk movie had a deleted scene (supposedly included on the DVD, that included a brief glimpse of Captain America frozen in the Arctic ice.
  • Because of the major success of the Iron Man movie, Captain America's costume will be altered: it will now be a suit of metal armour with replusor weapons on the hands and ashoulder mounted rocket launcher. (just kidding about the new costume, lol)


So that's it for now, but when I know more I will add it in here, True Believers...

      I agree with Stevennix2001, a big name actor would be nice, but the story and effects still need to be up to par--another Daredevil would be very disappointing (okay, some would argue that Ben Affleck isn't a big name...).

      Well I can see them making a decent Captain America film as long as they get a big name actor to play him. I can't see them casting an unknown for this, since Cap isn't like Spider-Man or Superman where the character itself will draw in main stream movie goers. Plus, he doesn't have the cool armor to create solid special effects to get away with it like "Iron Man" did. However, I would love to see either Mark Wahlberg or Matt Damon take this role, as they're both good actors, and are big enough names to draw attention to this film.
