With all the behind the scenes footage from Iron Man 2 and casting details on Thor it’s quite easy to forget that Marvel are actually working on the Captain America movie too. The film is currently scheduled to be released in May 2011, which is two months after Thor, however they still need to put together a cast and there is also the small issue of finding Captain America himself.
Quesada offered a brief update on “The First Avenger: Captain America,” with which he’s had some involvement. “I’ve seen a couple of outlines and an initial screenplay, and it’s going to rock everyone’s socks off,” he said. “It’s very unexpected, the kind of movie it is.” Quesada added that “Captain America” sets up “The Avengers” in “a fantastic way” and also mentioned that there is an undisclosed wish list of actors to play the star-spangled superhero.
Captain America is expected to start filming next summer, so in between now and then we should be getting some big developments. The Wolfman director Joe Johnston is directing, and the writers are the guys responsible for The Chronicles of Narnia scripts.
