Captain America Synopsis … That Isn’t

— Posted by Rodney

Right on the heels of hearing Joe Quesada’s endorsement on the progress of Captain America I admitted that we didn’t even have a plot synopsis yet.

And as if they were listening to my dark prayers to a fictional god First Showing says they got the synopsis from Production Weekly

“Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the ‘Super-Soldier Serum’ and bombarded by ‘vita-rays.’ Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers.”

Ok, so that’s nothing new that we didn’t already read on Wikipedia or Marvel’s character history.

That’s not a synopsis, that is Captain America.

We want to know the story premise! (aside from what we already assume) Will it all be in WW2?

All this tells us is that Captain America will be in the film!

    This is going to get lost in all this nerd talk :-p but I think most of the movie will take place during WWll and then at end he’s frozen and woken up at the very end by Nick Fury.
