Joe Johnston takes on Captain America
— Posted by Rodney
Captain America is getting the same red carpet treatment as the rest of the leadup films to the Avengers film, and news hits that they have secured a director for Captain America: The First Avenger – Joe Johnston.
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.
This guy has a great resume.
Though no official script has been written yet, it is speculated that Captain America: The First Avenger will take place in World War 2, sharing his origin story. So who better than the director of the pulp adventure hit Rocketeer? (which I loved).
I am very encouraged by this guy as a director for the Cap. He will hold true to the American spirit that everyone is hoping to see in this film. A slice of apple pie Americana was served up with Rocketeer, and only fitting we get another taste with Cap.
This film is slated to come out in 2011 a few months before we get the climax of geek mecca as IronMan, Thor, and Cap unite in Avengers.
