Captain America Movie Will Knock Your Socks Off and Other News

36 Comments

So I was thinking to myself the other day, “Self, what’s up with the Captain America movie”? Luckily for me, Marvel head honcho Joe Quesada was at the Big Apple Comic-Con in New York City and said this about the Captain America script (officially “The First Avenger: Captain America”):

“I’ve seen a couple of outlines and an initial screenplay, and it’s going to rock everyone’s socks off. It’s very unexpected, the kind of movie it is.”

And according to Quesada, the Captain America movie will, indeed, set up “The Avengers” movie, which would seem to indicate ol Cap ends up “iced” by film’s end.

So now that we know the script is great and tastes like strawberries, what will the movie be about? Maybe something like this:

“Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up 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… Operation: Rebirth. 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.”

The above is supposedly the plot synopsis for “The First Avenger”, but really, it sounds more like your garden variety origin of Captain America that anyone could glean from the comics. No real plot, though the fact that the film will take place during WWII is most excellent.

Expect the Star Spangled Banner to kick in Nazi teeth in 2011.

      that was from the X-men evolution cartoon (and I believe they got it from the comics) but still, won’t be part of the film.

      “Captain America wasn’t always gun-shy.” And I hope they give us a version that’s a cross between his regular and ultimate versions. I want a badass soldier Cap, but with the personality and charisma of the normal Cap.

    Wolverine isn’t tied into the story. Ties into Thor and Iron Man.

    It has nothing to do with history. Fox controls wolverine meaning he won’t be involved with Cap or the Avengers.
