Marvel has agreed a deal with director Joe Johnston to helm First Avenger: Captain America.

The superhero blockbuster, based on a character created in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, focuses on a weak man called Steve Rogers who is injected with an experimental serum which transforms him into a muscular superhero.

Captain America, to be released in 2011, will be set during World War II and lead into Marvel's modern-day ensemble movie The Avengers.

Johnston has been in talks to direct the movie for two years, and producer Kevin Feige told The Hollywood Reporter that his history of working on high-profile popcorn films made him the ideal choice for Captain America.

"This is a guy who designed the vehicles for Star Wars, who storyboarded the convoy action sequence for Raiders Of The Lost Ark," he said. "From Rocketeer to October Sky to The Wolfman, you can look at pieces of his movies and see how they lead to this one."

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley have been hired to write CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, Marvelís 2011 Summer tentpole which 10 days ago found Joe Johnston hired to direct.

The scriptwriting duoís C.V. includes the two NARNIA movies, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS and the Ben Kingsley hitman movie YOU KILL ME.

So one hopes quite honestly that they pitched an amazing concept for they could do with CAPTAIN AMERICA and it wasnít a case of Marvel coming knocking on the door to hire them because thereís nothing on their C.V. to show why they should have this gig.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER is set to be released May 6th 2011.

Hereís a superhero tidbit from this week which probably does carry some weight of truth behind it, namely because not only does it sound like the kind of smart move Marvel Films have been making recently but itís also sourced from Latino Review, who get it more often right than wrong.

LR say that Marvel will be further fleshing out their cross connections of their characters by having Tim Robbins play Howard Stark, the rich billionaire father of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the Howard Hughes like figure (without the insanity) who founded Stark Industries in more than one upcoming movie.

The character is expected to be used for FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA (as that is set during World War II, a time when Howard Starkís business was thriving and he worked closely with the government) and in flashback scenes in THE AVENGERS and IRON MAN 2.



LR donít mention this but I wouldnít be surprised if this also allows Jeff Bridges to return for IRON MAN 2 flashback scenes, showing his close bond with Howard Stark which just adds a little bit of tragedy to what happened to that character when greed took over.

Love the idea. Anything that grows the Marvel universe and further fleshes out this exciting wider expansion is great news to me and well, you canít really go wrong with Tim Robbins.

Though itís t.v. actor Gerard Sanders who misses out. He briefly played the character during a slideshow presentation from the first movie but Jon Favreau has made it known he wants an experienced actor to play the character for what will be a more substantial part this time round.

I still need to know who's playing Cap and Bucky! At the moment, Captain America is the best book on the stands. I just hope it leaves room for the Winter Soldier arc. The Cap movie must end with a)Cap diving into the icy water after Bucky when the airplane went kablooey or b) Stark seeing 'Cap on Ice' several years later-preferably in post-credits fashion.

ďPut Lee Marvin and CAPTAIN AMERICA together and you get meÖĒ

42 year old character actor Neal McDonough sure does talk an awful lot with First Showing about the character of CAPTAIN AMERICA for someone who is not involved with Marvelís big upcoming tentpoleÖ

And he brought up the subject first youíll seeÖ

Does he know something? Has he held early talks with Marvel for the role of Steve Rogers?

I certainly find his back tracking when asked directly ďwas that a hint?Ē to McDonoughís mention of the character. Like I say, he brought it up and then talked a lot about the character (as if he has been thinking this for a while) and then gave us a ďweíll seeĒ.

If heís not involved in talks with Marvel, he has certainly done his best to get his name out there.

And the more you think about it, the more he is a pretty damn good choice. Of course, visually he looks a lot like the character. Almost as if it could have been based on him.

He is a well built guy, believable as an action hero. As FS point out, he has done an awful lot of War roles in the past (BAND OF BROTHERS, FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS), so he fits straight into the early era of the character.

And heís a great actor first which like Robert Downey Jr and Christian Bale, is a huge, HUGE, plus.

The only stumbling block is that he is not really that big a name outside of the industry. Not a starÖ but that shouldnít matter. The more I look at him, the more I like this choice.

And no I donít think he is too old (around the same age as Downey Jr) and CAPTAIN AMERICA feels like he should be a little older than the rest. And yes, he does have screen presence.

Jackson Signs Nine-Picture Deal to Play Nick Fury!
Source:The Hollywood Reporter, Variety February 25, 2009


Samuel L. Jackson has buried the hatchet with Marvel Entertainment, making a deal to play the role of Nick Fury in Iron Man 2, and potentially many other films.

Jackson's deal is a long-term commitment to play Fury, the leader of the espionage unit S.H.I.E.L.D. His deal contains an option to play the character in nine future Marvel superhero films, efforts that are expected to include The First Avenger: Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, toplining a possible S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, and potential sequels.

Jackson introduced Fury in the closing moments of Iron Man, when the character asked Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark to join his group

Marvel pushes back 'Thor', 'Avengers'
Friday, March 13 2009, 06:10 GMT

By Simon Reynolds, Movies Editor

Marvel has delayed its superhero blockbusters Thor and The Avengers by a year, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Thor's new release date is June 17, 2011, moved from July 16, 2010, while The Avengers is now on course for a May 4, 2012 arrival having been originally planned for July 15, 2011.

Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel said that the change of dates are in order to space out the release of their solo superhero movies before uniting the characters for ensemble film The Avengers.

"[It] maximizes the visibility of our single-character-focused films, leading to the highly anticipated release of the multi-character The Avengers film in 2012," he explained.

Initial plans would have seen two Marvel movies out in 2010 (Iron Man 2 and Thor) and three the following year (The First Avenger: Captain America, Spider-Man 4 and The Avengers).

Captain America has also been shifted back two months to July 22, 2011, with Spider-Man 4 slotting into its old May 6 release date.

John Cena Shoots Down Captain America Casting Rumor

John Cena is an extraordinary athlete and great wrestler, but there is no way on God's green earth he has the acting chops to play Captain America. John goes on to say that any talk of him being up for, or taking meetings for the part of the Star Spangled Avenger is purely internet vapor.

"To kill the rumor, I was never contacted by anyone," Cena told MTV. "Usually when those rumors start itís because someone in that community thinks that I would be okay for a role. Iím flattered that they think I could play Captain America and I would be up for it."

However, Cena does say he'd love to have a shot at the part.

Kevin Feige Lets Go Some Marvel Movie News

On Captain America, have they cast anyone yet? To which Kevin States:

"There are only a handful of stars that mean anything here much less overseas. But I do think that will be a factor in it. As long as we have the freedom to do so at MarvelÖ.to just cast the best actor for the part whether it's an actor who's been a great actor, but hasn't starred in marquee action movies before like Downey or somebody that came out of Australia that they've never heard of," Feige states.

Kevin also threw out the Will Smith rumor for Cap and loves the "Truth" storyline, which revealed a black Captain America that pre-dated Steve Rogers.
Kevin goes on to say:

"I love the 'Truth' storyline. I think that's very cool. I wouldn't do that as a first Captain America movie though," Feige states "I think that (arc) came about four or five hundred issues in to the ďCapĒ run. I don't see launching with that comic."

More Marvel Movie Info From Kevin Feige! - On "The First Avenger: Captain America"

Feige confirmed that it's "primarily" a period piece that takes place during WWII. He said they went and looked at Raiders of the Lost Ark, which he says he "didn't know" was a period piece when he was watching it. They want to make Captain America with the "same level of fun" as that. And in regards to director Joe Johnston, he said that this would be a little bit of The Rocketeer, lots of October Sky, and a little bit of the ship designs that Johnston did for Star Wars, alluding to how this is the perfect movie for him to direct. "It's the movie his entire career has been leading towards."

He also confirmed that Bucky Barnes would indeed be in Captain America. When asked if he'll appear, Feige said "it's a safe bet" that he'd be in the movie "in some capacity".

We know that Iron Man 2 is up next, then Thor, then Captain America, then The Avengers in the summer of 2012. Feige said that they're "ordered this way for a reason." And confirmed that Samuel Jackson and Scarlett Johansson as well as Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are signed on for multiple movies or "multiple franchises," further extending that hint that Loki will be a villain who shows up quite often. Feige kept saying often that he'd love for audiences to have the same experience that comic book readers have - where characters make surprise appearances almost out of nowhere in issues they pick up.

Another Unknown Wants To Be Cap!

According to The Coventry Telegraph who as I reported earlier this week ran a poll of who fans would most like to see portray Captain America (a poll in which Jensen Ackles won by a HUGE majority!) another up-and-coming US actor has shown interest in portraying the star spangled Avenger...

Davis Anderson, who has lived in Los Angeles for almost two years, where he is studying acting, and will appear in the 2010 release Caravaggio: The Search, a comedy drama about the tortured life of the Italian artist.

Anderson said: "I realise Marvel are on the casting prowl for Captain America and who better to play the role of Captain America than an unknown such as myself. I am physically fit, a patriot of the USA and believe I would be right for the role. Of course, I am an unknown actor so Marvel fans might question the choice at first, but I think they'd find I was perfect for them."

Ed Brubaker Consulting on The First Avenger: Captain America

The Captain America: Reborn Writer is most likely going to be called upon to help Marvel bring us ďThe First Avenger: Captain America to the big screen.
Looks like Marvel made the move that makes the most sense. Ed Brubaker goes on to say:

ďI've seen the preliminary stuff for the movie, a year or so ago before (Marvel) hired the new screenwriter and director,Ē Brubaker states. ďI know Kevin Feige was talking about bringing me in when they put together the ĎCaptain Americaí brain trust for the movie, like they did for ĎIron Maní with Matt Fraction and (Brian) Bendis.Ē

Ed Brubaker the mastermind that is behind the Captain America: Reborn #1 story line that just hit shelves today mentioned that he has been involved with the movie early on in the filmmaking process, and that he is pretty sure Kevin will call upon him once again.

ďI think the talk has been that I'll be part of that brain trust along with Bendis and a few other people,Ē states Ed.

Off course nothing is official yet, but with Brubaker's five year run on Captain America the writer is definitely the guy most likely to get the job.

Meanwhile, Feige said that The First Avenger: Captain America is on the production path after Thor, so it will be a bit longer before they cast Cap. "I think it'll be a few months," Feige added.

Prep is fully underway on Captain, though, even though director Joe Johnston has not even wrapped his current production. "We already have some concept artists working on it," Feige continued. "Joe Johnston's finishing up Wolfman now, but he comes with us and we're already deep into the script and was in the office last week with us. He starts officially, and we open the offices officially in October."

Marvel details 'Captain America' movie

Marvel Studios has revealed details of its upcoming film project Captain America: The First Avenger.

Speaking at last week's Comic-Con International, company exec Kevin Feige confirmed that the movie will serve as an origin story for Steve Rogers, taking place during the Second World War.

"This movie is Steve Rogers's origin story, and I think it is our burden to make Steve Rogers as appealing as any of our other characters... he's not just the perfect boy scout who follows order every time. He has ideals he wants to live up to," he explained.

"Setting it in World War II - the Marvel version of World War II - I think is gonna open it up in another big way... What's funny is it will actually end up being, I think, our most diverse and our most international film, in terms of the content of the movies itself," he added.

Potential villains for the movie were also discussed, with Feige confirming that the Red Skull and terrorist organisation Hydra are currently being considered as the film's antagonists.

Production on the Joe Johnston-directed project is expected to begin in June next year

Kevin Feige Spills Loads of Info on Marvel Movies!


On Captain America:

How is ďFirst Avenger: Captain AmericaĒ shaping up?

ďCaptainĒ is going to start prep in October. We already have some concept artists working on it. Joe Johnston is finishing up ďWolfmanĒ now. Weíre deep into the script and he was in the office with us recently. We open the offices officially in October.

How close are you to actually announcing the ďCaptain AmericaĒ cast?

I think it will be a few months.

On Nick Fury:

How large will Nick Furyís role be in ďIron Man 2,Ē ďThor,Ē and ďCaptain America?Ē

You know, that remains to be seen. I think Sam Jacksonís gone on the record as saying that he hasnít busted into bad-ass action mode yet. At the end of the first one, for the people who were patient enough to wait through the end credits, they met this guy named Nick Fury. They or Tony had no idea who he was. In this movie, he opens that door a little bit more for Tony and invites him to walk through it. Tony may or may not do that in this movie. But Nick Fury is the conduit through which all the characters will connect.

In that case, how important was it for you to sign Sam Jackson for all of those films?

We wanted to do it. We wanted to do it for the continuity and clearly he had inspired the Ultimate Comics incarnation of Nick Fury of the past ten years. So we were very happy when we got him involved in all of the movies.

The First Avenger: Captain America
Release Date: July 22, 2011
Development Status: The last major Marvel movie prior to the ensemble Avengers film will feature the first Avenger of them all. First Avenger: Captain America will focus on the early days of Steve Rogers and his transformation into Captain America. The current script appears to be set almost entirely in WWII, with Cap's final act of heroism and his subsequent freezing likely serving as the film's climax.

Originally, Marvel Studios planned to debut the Cap movie in early 2011 and have it lead directly into the Avengers film a few months later. While this movie will probably still set the stage for Avengers, the gap between them has now widened to a full year. Captain America now has a script and a director (Jurassic Park 3's Joe Johnston), but as expected, the search for an actor to portray Cap is long and difficult. At one point rumors swirled that Will Smith would don the blue chain mail, but it seems more likely at this point that the filmmakers will choose a relative unknown for the part.

'Captain America' film to 'rock socks off'

Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada has said that the Captain America film will be an "unexpected" superhero movie.

Scheduled for release in 2011, The First Avenger: Captain America will follow a man unfit for military service who volunteers to take part in a research project that turns him into a World War II superhero.

"I've seen a couple of outlines and an initial screenplay, and it's going to rock everyone's socks off," Comic Book Resources quotes Quesada as saying. "It's very unexpected, the kind of movie it is."

Quesada explained that Captain America would lead into ensemble superhero film The Avengers in "a fantastic way" and a wish list of actors to play the Marvel hero has been drawn up.

Joe Johnston will direct The First Avenger: Captain America from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

'Captain America' to be shot in UK?

A claim that The First Avenger: Captain America could be filmed in the UK has prompted speculation that Marvel character Union Jack features in the script.

According to Comic Book Movie, an operator of Independent Studio Services posted a message on Twitter which read: "Marvel films is considering filming Captain America in the UK, WTF!"

Marvel president Kevin Fiege has already been quoted as saying that the movie "will be one of the most international films Marvel Studios has done".

In addition to rumours that Union Jack, also known as James Montgomery Falsworth, might therefore appear in the film, there has been renewed speculation linking Tyrese to the role of Isaiah Bradley.

When he launched his comic book hero Mayhem, Tyrese told MTV News: "Instead of me sitting back and waiting on Luke Cage to finally happen - which I'm still looking forward to doing once they get the script together - and instead of me waiting on Captain America, which they were talking about me for, I'm going to create my own."

Production will reportedly start in summer 2010 for Marvel Studio's The First Avenger: Captain America.

Speaking to Fangoria, director Joe Johnston revealed that he's eying a June starting date for the comic book adaptation.

The film's title character is yet to be cast, but Avatar star Sam Worthington was recently linked to the role of Captain America.

Claims that scenes for the movie could be filmed in the UK have prompted speculation that Marvel character Union Jack features in the script.

'Captain' movie 'set mainly in WWII'

Joe Johnston has revealed that the Captain America movie will be mainly set during World War II.

The director of the forthcoming Wolfman told Box Office Magazine that his Marvel Comics adaptation will centre on a frail soldier's transformation into a musclebound superhero.

"It is influenced by the comic book, but it goes off in a completely different direction," said Johnston. "It's the origin story of Captain America. It's mostly period - there are modern, present-day bookends on it - but it's basically the story of how Steve Rogers becomes Captain America. The great thing about Captain America is he's a superhero without any super powers. Which is why this story, among the hundreds of superhero stories, appealed to me the most."

Johnston added that he is planning to mix blockbuster set pieces with smaller character moments: "It's got some great action sequences in it and some incredible stuff that we've never seen before. But at the heart of it, it's a story about this kid who all he wants to do is fit in. This thing happens and he still doesn't fit in. And he has to prove himself a hero - essentially go AWOL to save a friend.

"Eventually at the very end, I don't want to give away to much, but he does fit in. But it's the journey of getting him there that's interesting. And it's a lot of fun."

Joe Johnston Finally Talks About Captain America!

what can we discern from Joe Johnston's synopsis:

1. There are modern day bookends in the movie: Meaning that, while the bulk of the film will take showcase the WWII era, the beginning and end will take place in the present time. Could it possibly be Nick Fury searching for Cap at the beginning and him being thawed out of the ice at the end? Sounds like a direct lead-in to The Avengers movie!

2. During the midst of the film, Cap will have to go AWOL (Absent Without Leave, commonly known as desertion) to save a friend: The most likely mainstream candidates that come to mind are Bucky or possibly even Union Jack.

3. 'It's not going to be a Captain America that you expect. It is influenced by the comic book, but it goes off in a completely different direction': To me, this means the film won't favor one continuity. The most logical assumption is a 50/50 mix of the mainstream and Ultimate Marvel universes with a dash of originality added throughout to keep us all surprised.

Director Joe Johnston Gives More Info on Captain America

Speaking briefly about The First Avenger: Captain America, Johnston gives some insight into his directorial "instincts."

The following excerpt is from FilmJournal.com:
"I've got my next job and I'm not going to worry about the success or the failure of the picture," says Joe Johnston. "I can only use my instincts and say, 'I think this is the best version of that scene. This is the best take. This is the best piece of music for this scene.' And I can't start second-guessing myself and thinking, 'What does the audience want to see? What does the studio think is the best solution for this?' You can't start doing that, because after a while it all becomes a blur and you forget what your original instinct was."

That "next job" is the much-anticipated The First Avenger: Captain America, featuring the Marvel Comics superhero created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1940 for Marvel's forerunner, Timely Comics.

"We're in prep," Johnston says. "Rick Heinrichs is production-designing and we're set up down in Manhattan Beach [California]. It's the part of the process that I love the most," he enthuses. "We have eight or ten really talented artists, and we all just sit around all day and draw pictures and say, 'Hey, wouldn't it be cool if we could do this?' It's that phase of the production where money doesn't matter: ĎLet's put all the greatest stuff up on the wall and [then later] see what we can afford.'" The film, he says at this early stage, will begin "in 1942, 1943" during World War II. "The stuff in the í60s and í70s [comic books] we're sort of avoiding. We're going back to the í40s, and then forward to what they're doing with Captain America now."

We've got more about the upcoming The First Avenger: Captain America from director Joe Johnston, who now says that he'll be announcing a star very soon.

"We need to cast it soon," Johnston said. "We have a very short list, but we're still juggling actors here. I'd say within the next couple of weeks we'll have ourselves a Captain America, I hope."

As for who will actually play Cap, Johnston either ain't saying or can't yet say. Rumored actors include everyone from Will Smith to Aaron Eckhart to John Barrowman.

As for when the movie will shoot? Johnston said the movier is still "fairly early" in preproduction. Shooting won't start until the end of June, he said, "but we're getting ready to go to the U.K., it looks like."

Marvel put out a series detailing the use of black guys as guinea pigs for the super soldier serum. Only one got the right formula and basically would have been a black Captain America but the military couldn't have that in the 1930s so the perfected serum was then given to the white guy. :D Will Smith is more than welcome to play that guy, but Cap's white. It's the way it is. :D It's like having a white Brother/Doctor Voodoo or an asian Luke Cage. ;)

I wouldn't want a race reversal, I could settle for Sam Jackson because it's "Ultimate Nick Fury" who is black and not the normal Nick, plus it's Sam Jackson. He's badass. I'd want him as Superman given the chance.

I didn't even like Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face in Batman Forever because he was white. I had never read the comic books so Harvey Dent was always black to me, from the Burton movies to the Animated Series. I was thinking "yeah, give it to the black guy when he's normal, but make him a starring villain and have to make him white, typical racist hollywood". Hey, I was like 14 at the time and didn't know better.

Exclusive : Captain Awesome reads for Captain America

Captain Awesome for Captain America? Though heís not going to be without competition (I imagine every young actor in Hollywood with a half-decent agent will get to read) ďChuckĒ actor Ryan McPartlin (yep, Captain Awesome himself!) tells Moviehole that he recently auditioned for the role of shield-wielding Steve Rogers.

In an interview to promote his work on ďChuckĒ, I couldnít help but wonder whether McPartlin's peeps have put his name forward to ďCaptain AmericaĒ director Joe Johnston for consideration (particularly since the actor has expressed interest in the part in the past).

And seems they have. ďThe one thing I can't stand are these actors that are twittering about auditioning for Captain America. It's really tacky. With that said, it is in the casting process and like many other actors, I read for it, so we'll wait and see what happens. Regardless, I'm pretty psyched to be Captain Awesome for the time being.Ē

McPartlin's terrific on ďChuckĒ Ė fastly becoming the break-out star of the show, in fact Ė and I tell ya, I wouldnít be opposed at all to him acquainting himself with the Super Serum. Still, as McPartlin said, he's merely one of what one imagines to be a large mass of actors who have read for the role, and he hasn't got the gig. Yet.

Red Skull Will Be The Villain In The First Avenger: Captain America

We finally starting to find out more about The First Avenger: Captain America. According to SuperheroHype, Ryan Rotten at ShockTillYouDrop attended a press conference with Joe Johnston for The Wolfman. Johnston confirmed that the Red Skull will be the villain that Captain America will have to fight.

Later Johnston told Rotten:

"Virtually the entire story except the bookends are in World War II because we all recognize we have one chance to tell the origin story of how he became Captain America, you can't tell a modern story and then go back and tell the origin story. If you're going to do it, let's do it. Let's do it first. Everyone wanted to tell an origin story. There was a version where it was a modern story and it didn't work."

Red Skull makes the most sense. Who else deserves to be the main villain in a Captain America movie? I wonder what he'll look like. Will he just have a mask on? Will they use CGI for his face?

First Avenger: Captain America will feature The Invaders, says Director

Joe Johnston has let out a lot at the press conference yesterday, including casting, locations, costume, and the villain. Well now over at CHUD, editor, Devin Faraci, reveals his conversation with Joe, featuring The Invaders.

"Yesterday I talked with The First Avenger: Captain America director Joe Johnston at the press day for The Wolfman, and he revealed to me that The Invaders were going to be a major presence in the film. 'They'll be in the entire second half,' he said.

Johnston also told me that The Invaders will be six members strong, so if you add Bucky and the Red Skull The First Avenger: Captain America might very well feature nine costumed characters, surely some kind of a record outside of a straight up team franchise like X-Men.

Earlier during the press conference Johnston had said that his Captain America would be played (hopefully) by a newcomer and that he would surrounded by name actors. Could The Invaders be roles for better known actors? The European team is definitely included as a way to sell a movie with Captain America overseas (Feige said as much at Comic Con), so why not throw some name actors in there?

Who will be on The Invaders? Johnston wouldn't say, but here are some possibilities, based on the comics"

Top Three Contenders for Captain America Revealed?

A supposedly trusted source has pointing out three contenders Marvel Studios is considering for the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America. Follow the jump to see who they are. . .

According to BigShinyRobot.com, their reliable source in the Paramount/Marvel confirmed that the studio is indeed only considering unknowns/television actors to portray Captain America on the big screen.

"Apparently, when the script came in with World War II sequences (featuring the Invaders), the studio heads decided it was beyond their means to make this movie AND afford A-listers like Brad Pitt and Matt Damon."

The source, who remains unnamed, specifically pointed out Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill), Ryan McPartlin (Chuck) and Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) as being among the top choices.

We've already heard from other sites that both Murray and McPartlin have potentially read for the role, but this is the first (albeit unofficial) word that fan-favorite Jensen Ackles is in serious consideration. It looks like we'll have to wait until March 1st to find out solid news regarding this casting.

It doesn't matter what Marvel wants as Fox and Sony have full control of whatever rights they still own. The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, Captain America, and whatever is next is done (or going to be done) by Marvel Studios at the helm and having control allowing stories more true to the comics including crossovers. Sam Jackson will appear in many movies, I believe he was contracted for about 9 movies(most of which are unknown at this time)

Is This Captain America?

Rumor has it that Cap has been cast.

Both IESB and Screenrant point out a (now missing) article at Comic Book Movie that claims TV actor Robert Buckley has landed the title role in Marvel's forthcoming movie The First Avenger: Captain America.

We checked all over ComicBookMovie.com and couldn't find the existing article, while the link provided by IESB didn't work as of end of day PST Saturday. So we must caution you that this story should be deemed rumor until reported otherwise. The film's director, Joe Johnston, recently said the role of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, would be cast by the end of this month.

Buckley, a 28 year-old native Californian, has appeared on TV series such as One Tree Hill, Lipstick Jungle, American Heiress and Fashion House. According to the IMDB, Buckley stands 6'2" and is a model-turned-actor.

Mark Millar On Captain America and The Avengers!

Den Of Geek recently sat down to talk to Mark Millar about Kick-Ass and during the interview asked him to share his thoughts on how he feels about the upcoming Captain America and Avengers movies being based off his and Bryan Hitch's iconic run on The Ultimates.

And speaking of your other books, this isn't about Kick-Ass, but I need to ask: were you intentionally writing Ultimates as an Avengers movie pitch? And now that they're making that movie, how would you feel if that's how it was used?

Well, they've already admitted they're doing it that way. Joe Johnston has said publically, the Captain America movie is going to be the first issue of Ultimates, plus the origin story, and then the Avengers movie will be material from Ultimates #2-#13, and maybe Ultimates Volume 2. I'm not speaking out of school, they've publically said this. And I'm flattered by it.

Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, John Krasinski of The Office, Scott Porter of Friday Night Lights, Cloverfield's Mike Vogel and Michael Cassidy of Smallville are all in line for the part.

All five actors have agreed to test deals for the role. A source indicated that whoever lands the part must sign on for nine other options, including potential sequels to the film and 2012's Avengers.

Tron Legacy actor Garrett Hedlund was also sought for the project, but the studio was unable to reach a deal with him.

Captain America will be ... The Office's John Krasinski??

The beginning of March has come and gone without official word about who will play The First Avenger: Captain America, but rumors are flying that it's John Krasinski's to lose.

That's right: Jim Halpert from NBC's The Office has the role all but in the bag, according to a rumor on Fox 411:


Insiders at the Marvel compound tell Fox 411 that he is close to landing the superhero gig of his life. John, who plays Jim on "The Office," has appeared in front of producers repeatedly since the start of the new year and since rumors began in February.

Captain America will be ... The Office's John Krasinski??

The beginning of March has come and gone without official word about who will play The First Avenger: Captain America, but rumors are flying that it's John Krasinski's to lose.

That's right: Jim Halpert from NBC's The Office has the role all but in the bag, according to a rumor on Fox 411:

John Krasinski: Captain America No More

The Krasinski/Cap rumors have been flowing non-stop over the past few weeks. Some sites have gone as far as stating that he has already been awarded the role. Though Marvel Studios has neither confirmed nor denied Krasinski's involvement with the project, new information from The Hollywood Reporter should put comic film fans at ease.

The site released a trade announcement tonight that Krasinski and his agents are currently negotiating for him to star in a romantic comedy opposite Ginnifer Goodwin titled Something Borrowed. The role is for a two picture deal, rare for this genre of films, the first of which will begin filming this Spring.

The First Avenger: Captain America director, Joe Johnston, is already in England prepping to begin shooting the film in June. To top it off, Krasinski's hit show on NBC, The Office, has been renewed for another season.

It's apparent that the actor's schedule is officially tied up for the rest of the year.

Marvel Expanding Their Search For Captain America!!

From Deadline:
EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios and director Joe Johnston want to be really sure theyíve found the right actor to star in The First Avenger: Captain America.

Marvel has slightly expanded its searchóadding actors that Iím told include Chris Evans, who already logged Marvel Comics superhero time as Johnny Storm/Human Torch in two Fantastic Four films. Of the original contenders, two are still in serious contention: Mike Vogel (Cloverfield) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy).

Hedlund was on Marvelís original wish list but didn't test at first. Scheduling was cited, but I also heard his reps balked when Marvel informed them that the job would include options for 9 future films and a salary around $300,000.

Itís not going to work out for the other actors who tested: Chace Crawford (CW's Gossip Girl), John Krasinski (NBC's The Office), Scott Porter (NBC's Friday Night Lights), Michael Cassidy (CW's Privileged) or Patrick Flueger (Brothers).

Matrix agent to be Captain America's Red Skull?

The title character in The First Avenger: Captain America remains to be cast, but at least the villain seems a lock: Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings, The Matrix) is the choice of Marvel Studios to play the Red Skull.

That's the report in The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog:


In the Marvel comics, Red Skull has been Captain America's archenemy since 1941, when he engaged in espionage and sabotage as Hitler's right-hand man. In his final battle with the superhero, he was buried under the rubble of a bombed building butóas would occur later with Captain Americaófell into a state of suspended animation. Both were revived in modern times.

Weaving just worked with Johnston in The Wolfman and is no stranger to villain parts, having played the nefarious Agent Smith in the Matrix films.

Another possible Captain America? YesóRyan Phillippe

Is there any leading man in Hollywood who hasn't been considered for the role of Captain America? Though director Joe Johnston said last month that he had hopes of casting an unknown actor, the list of known actors whose names we've heard tossed about as being possible candidates continues to grow.

According to hitfix, the latest contender to join Mike Vogel (She's Out of My League), Garret Hedlund (Tron Legacy), Chris Evans (Fantastic Four), Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights), Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), Michael Cassidy (Smallville) and others is Ryan Phillippe.

Phillippe last appeared on the screen in 2008's critical and box office disappointment Stop-Loss, and will be seen next as a member of Will Forte's crack team in MacGruber.

Kiera Knightly Approached for Captain America Role

The Hollywood Reporter, who last week broke the news of Hugo Weaving's tentative casting as Red Skull, has just revealed that Pirates of the Caribbean actress Keira Knightly was also approached by Marvel Studios to possibly star in The First Avenger: Captain America.

Details regarding the role are still secretive, it is believed she might portray Steve Roger's love interest Betsy Ross. Though Knightly is the first name to be linked to the character, Marvel is apparently still looking at other actresses.

<snip>

UPDATE: Deadline.com has just posted a few more actresses that could be Knightly's competition for the role: Alice Eve (She's Out of My League) and Emily Blunt (The Wolfman). They also state that the role is for Peggy Carter; who was not just one of Steve Roger's love interests, but an American spy and aunt to S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter.

Have you ever seen any of the stuff Hugh Jackman did before X-Men? What about Reeve before Superman or Keaten before Batman (other than Beetlejuice)? All it takes is the right person for the right role, and you'd be amazed. I still want Christoph Waltz as Red Skull and Aaron Eckhart as Cap, but I think Chris Evans could pull it off so long he plays the serious role and not an annoying douchebag like Johnny Storm.

Even as a stage actor (I think it's stage musicals which is even more bizarre), it's still a big jump from stage to a 100 million dollar movie with some minor tv experience in between. He's a great actor, a brilliant choice for Wolverine and he deserves the success, but before X-Men was released and was in early development, could you honestly say that picking a musical stage actor sounds like the best idea for Wolverine?

I think that Chris Evans could be like Reeve, Jackman and Keaton. I remember him from Street Kings and thought he was really good in it. More characters like that and less like Johnny Storm, he could establish himself as a serious action actor.

Ryan Reynolds is another good example. I remember him from Two guys, a girl and a pizza place. He does a lot of comedy, but loved in Smokin' Aces, Blade III, He's doing both Deadpool and Green Lantern and he did Amityville Horror which is very far from Two guys, Van Wilder or Waiting. If anything, Reynolds would be like Keaton. If I remember right, one of the issues about Keaton doing Batman was the fact he'd come from a comedy background.

I can honestly tell you, that I never through Downey was perfect for Iron Man. I loved Downey in 'Kiss, Kiss, Bang Bang', loved him in 'US Marshalls' (even if it was an unnecessary sequel to an already fantastic movie) enjoyed him in 'A Scanner Darkly', I know he did Ally McBeal and I remember him in a few older movies (one with Mel Gibson and one he's a dead guy on a bus).

That is what makes Downey's role in Iron Man my fave (behind Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang). I never would have thought of him capable of doing a superhero movie, but while I knew of Downey's substance abuse, I never knew of Stark's abuse. The more I learnt, I thought he could do good as Stark (because of that shared abuse) but after watching the movie, I loved him in the role as Iron Man and Stark. He completely blew me away.

I expect the same of Chris. When I think of Chris, I have a hard time thinking about him other than Johnny Storm, but if he can be more Street Kings than Fantastic Four, I believe he'd be the best choice out of everyone rumoured and mentioned to be auditioning.

But look back when the Thor casting happened, THR and the million an one other sites were reporting the casting of Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, about two weeks before Marvel put out a press release. Personally i dont think we'll see a press release untill they lock down the actors for Cap, Red Skull an the female lead, so that they can do one PR rather than multiple ones each time these new cast, just like they have done in the past.

And i really dont think that Marvel would allow Stan Lee (granted isnt involved in casting, but an exec producer on the film) and Jon Favreau (who's exec producing the Avengers) talk/refer to his casting if it werent true. Not to mention Variety (saying no PR has been released because the details of the deal are still being finalised) reported the casting, and as a trade mag, 99% of the time they are right.

Captain America sidekick: Sebastian Stan

Sebastian Stan, one of the actors who tested for the title role of Marvelís ďCaptain AmericaĒ which ultimately went to Chris Evans, has nabbed the key role of Captain Americaís sidekick Bucky Barnes.

In comic book lore, Barnes, a teenaged orphan, was too young to join the army but became one campís mascot. When he discovered Captain Americaís identity, he joined Captain America as a partner in his Nazi-fighting escapades. The character died in Captain Americaís final World War II adventure.

After decades of being ďdead,Ē the character was revived in 2005 and brought back into modern comic continuity, initially as a covert assassin named Winter Soldier.

It is not clear if the movie version of Barnes sets up the Winter Soldier identity. Marvel would only confirm that Stan is playing Barnes. Insiders also say Stan has signed on for five or six pictures.

Marvel President Kevin Feige Shares Status on Marvel Films!!

Wednesday was a big day for Marvel Studios because director Jon Favreau wrapped up "Iron Man 2." Kevin Feige, Marvel's president of production, was in a celebratory mood, but it was split with with anger over the New York Daily News reports, which Feige called "garbage."

Feige said the plan to meld the Marvel Universe on the silver screen will move forward dramatically now and he said there are some surprises in "Iron Man 2" that set up an unexpected bond to the "Captain America" movie that director Joe Johnston is doing early work on now in England.

Samuel L. Jackson will NOT be in "Thor."

"Now many of the pieces are in place ... with 'Iron Man 2' finished and 'Thor' more than halfway done, that lattice work is being built."

Feige said Branagh is proving to be the ideal choice for "Thor" -- the executive knew he would be after seeing the buoyant and accessible "Much Ado About Nothing," which made Shakespeare fun and funny even to "comic book fans like me," Feige said. He added: "You could actually laugh and understand all of it."

EARTHS MIGHTIEST: When you were going through the casting process, in your mind, what were you looking for? In other words, what qualities did the actor being cast as Captain America have to have?

JOE JOHNSTON: Casting Captain America is really casting two roles...Steve Rogers before and after the transformation from 98 pound weakling to perfect physical specimen. I can't divulge how we're going to do it, but the performance will be Chris Evans from beginning to end. An actor playing Captain America has to embody that backstory and let it inform his understanding of his new self. One of the interesting aspects of the character is the effect that kind of total transformation would have on the his psyche. It gives the character more dimension and the actor playing him a wider range of interesting choices.

Chris Evans on Sleepless Nights accepting "Captain America"

Promoting his latest film, The Losers, ScreenStar caught up with actor Chris Evans. In the interview mainly about Losers, ScreenStar interviewer, Ian Spelling brings up his upcoming lead role of Steve Rogers in The First Avenger: Captain America.

How big a responsibility is it to take on that role, that project?
"It is a big responsibility. I'm a little scared, to be honest. I'd be lying if I said anything else, and I have no problem being honest about that. It's intimidating. It's a big responsibility and you want to do your best work. I'm not quite sure what else to say. It was a challenging process for me, trying to decide whether or not to do it. I came down on the side of going for it because I really think Marvel is doing some great things these days, the script is great and it's going to be a fun character to play. He's a wonderful character, just as a man, aside from the comic hero background. If it was just a story about the man, Steve Rogers, I'd be really interested. He's an incredibly noble, honest, selfless man, and those are qualities that I think people can aspire to and look up to."

Taking on this kind of mega-project can really change an actor's lifeÖ
"It was tricky saying yes. A couple of sleepless nights were involved. I'm going for it and I'm not looking back. I'm trying to just stay positive and focus on the fact that it could be a great thing. It really could be, it should be, and that's the way I'm looking at it."

Two-Face Joining Captain America?

Rumor has it that a certain Oscar winner might be joining Captain America.

UGO claims that Tommy Lee Jones -- whose comic book movie credits include Men in Black and his turn as Two-Face in Batman Forever -- is up for an unspecified role in the Marvel movie, which is set primarily during World War II. IGN contacted Jones' camp at CAA, who said they'd never heard the rumor before and thus had no comment on it.

Although UGO didn't know which role Jones would supposedly play, they assume he'd be a military man perhaps involved with the Super Soldier program that creates Cap.

Arnim Zola Cast in Captain America: The First Avenger

The Hollywood Reporter, who has been responsible for most of the major Captain America movie scoops to date, just reported that British actor Toby Jones is in final negotiations to portray the villainous scientist Arnim Zola in Captain America: The First Avenger.

For those of you unfamiliar with the character, Arnim Zola was a biochemist during World War II who became one of the first human genetic engineers in history. He found a ready home among the Nazi party, who saw his actions as the ability to ensure the existence of a master race. One of his first accomplishments was the creation of a brain pattern imprinting device, which would allow someone's mental essence to be projected into a cloned brain.

Zola's most noticeable feat, however, was performed upon himself. He has constructed a specially modified body which lacks a head. Instead, Zola's face is located - via holographic projection - on his chest, and atop his shoulders is an ESP Box, a psychotronic device which he uses to exert his control over his monster creations. In a limited effect, the Box can also be used as an offensive weapon. Whenever his current body is damaged, or utterly destroyed, Arnim is able to send his personality to another one stored elsewhere, thus giving himself a form of immortality.

Dominic Cooper Cast as Young Howard Stark in Captain America

Salon.com recently interviewed Dominic Cooper while the actor was attending Cannes to promote his film Tamara Drewe. Cooper revealed to them that he is "slated to play Howard Stark (aka, Iron Man's father) in the upcoming 'Captain America.'"

That makes three different men that will end up collaborating to bring the once war mongering, turned world saving, industrialist to life on the silver screen. Though the past two times Stark Senior appeared may have been brief, Cooper's time on film will definitely show his importance to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to dialogue from Iron Man 2, Howard Stark was not only a wealthy man who wanted to change the world, but a founding member of the clandestine government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. It's also very safe to assume that Stark will have a hand in the Super Soldier Program, which birthed the film's title character, Captain America.

Tommy Lee Jones confirmed for Captain America! (But as what?)

Actress Hayley Atwell has confirmed that Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones will appear in Captain America: The First Avenger. Atwell, who plays Cap's World War II squeeze Peggy Carter in the movie, spilled the beans about Jones in a London video interview with ComicBookMovie.com. Jones joins a cast that already includes Chris Evans in the title role, Sebastian Stan as sidekick Bucky Barnes and Hugo Weaving as nemesis Red Skull, along with Atwell and Samuel L. Jackson.

As for who Jones will be playing, most of the speculation has centered around Gen. Chester Phillips, the military man who, in the Marvel mythology, selects the skinny but patriotic Steve Rogers for the super-soldier experiment that turns the army reject into the legendary superhero and future leader of the Avengers. The hard-nosed Phillips acts as sort of a mentor and commander for Rogers, a role that seems perfectly suited for Jones' overall tough-guy demeanor.

Empire Online now has a new article showing what Chris "Captain America" Evans thinks about the suit the guys at Marvel has made for him to attire in the July 22, 2011 film, "Captain America: The First Avenger".

What Chris Evans had to say: "It‚Äôs an amazing costume. Given the fact that his costume is red, white and blue, and it‚Äôs tight, and it could be kind of flash and over the top ‚Äď and given the fact that the movie takes place in the ‚Äė40s and ‚Äė50s ‚Äď they‚Äôve done a really good job of making it look really cool."

"I think everyone that’s going to see it is going to say, 'Okay, well done. Well done. I think they got the costume right. The casting they completely ruined, but the costume they nailed!'"

I'm glad the movie seems to be taking the time to develop pre-Captain America Steve Rogers. It's really interesting what they've done, as I expected them to use Chris Evans before he bulked up for the role but instead we got a much more interesting look of the character.

As for Tommy Lee Jones, I kept getting "we need a hard target search of every barn house, dog house, hen house and out house in this area" flashbacks so it makes me wonder if they picked him just because of that speech his character gave the troops.

I'm gettin such a Fantastic 4 vibe from this trailer...not sure this is a good thing. Anyone thinks he looks kinda weird as the "little guy"? His head is too big, or rather the body is too slim and short. And however much action scenes the trailer has shown seem so generic these days. I think everybody is being indulgent that we finally have a live-action Captain America, or maybe I'm being too critical, but so far I'm not impressed I'm afraid.

I'm not either, but considering it's directed by Martin Campbell, who did Casino Royale and Edge of Darkness, both I liked very much, I can at least trust that he'll deliver as far as characterisations and asthetics go, which something I find Joe Johnston lacks lately with his last few films. And if his recent track record is anything to go by, chances are Captain America will just be another forgettable actioner with a few eye candy and nothing more.

Bascially the same question that I posted on the Avengers thread, which comics would you recommend of Captain America?

Not sure TBH....

I've heard from a reliable source (A dude who works for Paramount in Russia who has revealed a lot of accurate info on a different web-forum) that there was meant to be a new Cap trailer with Thor, but like the first, it had to be delayed :(

Also, the current plan is to have an Avengers teaser with Cap when it's released

Just seen a bunch of guys on a different forum get their panties in a bunch over the fact the tagline is 'Heroes are made in America'

Well to be fair, the tagline is correct so I don't see why they'd get upset.

Three of the major Avenger characters are American creations. Captain America and Hulk (if they use the Ed Norton version) are part of the same experiment. Cap was the proper formula, Banner was an incomplete version+gamma radiation. Tony Stark builds his own suits. Outside Avengers, Wolverine is Canadian but still, his best known for his adamantium skeleton and claws, which were part of a US experiment once again.

I'm not really sure that BananaMan would have the same interest with America cinema goers (which is who the studio aims at, international money is just extra)
