An exclusive piece of news comes from "Fangoria" today where director Joe Johnston ("The Wolfman") has announced the production start on "The First Avenger: Captain America" for June 2010. The movie is slated to be released on July 22, 2011.

One of the most popular comics from Marvel "Captain America" follows the story of Steve Rogers who was born during the Great Depression and grew up as a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy's earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the 'Super-Soldier Serum' and bombarded by vita-rays. Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers. I think many battles will be fought during the casting process in this movie: what do you think who deserves to put on the star studded costume of Captain America?


  1. I know it's just an idea but people keep saying Sam Worthington as Captain America, and right now it seems like a pretty good idea.

  2. I'm up for that idea, since I love Sam, but I'm not sure how thrilled the Americans would be with the idea of an Ozzie guy playing their Yankee hero :)

  3. I keep hearing Sam will play this, and that... Almost anything new has Sam as possible star.
    And if it isn't Sam, than it's Ryan Reynolds.

    Rumors are getting increasingly funny at this point. :)) Those guys are probably good at their work, but even they can't be in several places/roles at once.

  4. Yes, but hasn't Sam scored all the big roles he was cheered for? :)
    And, Ryan, well, Ryan really is a lucky guy, and seems to have it all these days, except one thing - people taking him seriously, so he needs one big dramatic role, just to diversify himself a bit.
