Captain America: The First Avenger - Director Secured


Joe Johnston has inked a deal to direct "First Avenger: Captain America," Marvel Studios' take on its classic comic book character. Marvel's Kevin Feige is producing.

Johnston has directed movies such as Honey I Shrunk The Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumangi, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo and the upcoming 2009 Wolfman movie. He's also the guy responsible for the final designs for Boba Fett and Yoda and numerous vehicles for Star Wars and for storyboarding the convoy sequence in Indiana Jones: Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Reports suggest the movie will be set almost entirely, if not exclusively, in World War II (which I think is a great decision) and then
the character will appear in the modern day setting for Avengers. The word is that Cap himself will resemble the Ultimates version and not the initial comics version (another good decision).

Again I'm a huuuuuge Captain America fan and have numerous items of memorabilia including a full size shield, statues, mighty muggs and various action figures... I can't wait for this particular Marvel movie to come out, regardless of who the actor is who plays Cap!
