It seems things are moving on nicely for Marvel’s Captain America movie. Just last week it was announced that Joe Johnston would be sat in the directors chair, and now The Hollywood Reporter say that Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are in negotiations to write the script. Their previous work includes The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and its sequel, Prince Caspian.
Created in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon for Timely Comics, Captain America is the heroic alter ego of Steve Rogers, who is rejected by the Army for being too sickly and undergoes an experiment that takes him to the pinnacle of human form. Paired with an indestructible shield, he becomes a symbol of the war effort, fighting Nazis and villainous scientists like the Red Skull.
