Captain America Movie News?

The Emerald Knight sent me over a link the other day with some initial movie news on the new Captain America movie from MTV and his only words accompanying the e-mail were "OH MY F*****G WOW" which I guess means he's excited about it!

Although the link now seems to be down at MTV the following is taken from posted by VENKMAN. I've removed his comments so you have the body of the original post but you can view his whole post HERE.

"Marvel president Kevin Feige recently talked about the film and gives a breakdown of what there plans are for Captain America. And here you are:

Feige acknowledged that “Captain America” might have difficulty playing overseas, which is one of the reasons for the title “The First Avenger: Captain America”. In other countries, it might be marketed as simply “The First Avenger.”

The Cap story will be very realistic, about a scrawny kid who wants to prove himself, set during WWII.

“Captain America” will be Marvel’s most internationally-located movie, as the character will be traveling all over the world.

Marvel is more likely to get a name actor to play Captain America, because of the need for it to play well overseas. It seems doubtful that they’ll repeat the “Thor” move of going with a relative unknown.

Feige said that the actor who plays Cap will be American. No Australians, Brits, etc.
By the time his own films and the “Avengers” movies are over, Captain America could appear in as many as six movies.

Since he needs a big, international name, Feige refused to eliminate one of the biggest stars in the world, Will Smith. He referred to Smith as being among the handful of international stars they’d consider.

Although Smith is in the running, Feige shot down rumors that they’d be using the “Truth” storyline in the film. Although he said he enjoyed the comic, it wouldn’t make for an appropriate cinematic launch for the character.
Marvel is definitely looking to get into the 3D realm soon. Feige recently saw “Up,” loved it, and said that he’d be watching James Cameron’s “Avatar” closely. Although “Iron Man II” will not be 3D, it is a possibility for “Captain America.”

Pre-production officially begins in October, with plans to start filming on June 28th, 2010.
Casting is expected to begin this summer.
Joe Johnston and the writers are working on the script now.
It will likely be a “save the world”-type story.
Feige said that some of the unselected “Thor” actors may be candidates for the “Captain America” movie".

Oh and something else MTV posted the other day about the movie was that Bucky was sure to be in it... Not 100% that I like that news but we'll see how that turns out.
