View Full Version : CAPTAIN AMERICA..The Latest News Thread

02-07-2010, 05:37 AM
With Iron Man and The Hulk out of the Way, Iron Man 2 coming in a few months and Thor currently shooting, the last Marvel movie before the big Avengers flick is Captain America and all of the questions surrounding it, like, who is going to play Captain America?

During today's press conference for The Wolf Man, Joe Johnston spoke about Captain America, where he's at as far as pre-production, and how the casting process is coming along:

How is pre-production going on your next film (Captain America) and are you planning on casting an American?

Johnston: Casting an American? Oh yeah. Absolutely. I don't think we could make the film without an American playing the part. We may not be casting in America because we're going to London. we'll probably shoot in the UK for most of it because it takes place in Europe but ya we'll definitely be casting (an American).

Johnston also mentions that Captain America will be shot in HD. Not shot in 3D, because now studios can do that in post, but no answer if Cap would be in 3D or not.

With Captain America do you see opportunities to have a different style to it, like Sam Raimi did with Spider-Man?

Johnston: We're definitely gonna shoot it in a different way than any of the other marvel pictures that have been shot. And what I'm trying to do is look at the comics. Most of the new ones. Most of the Brubaker series and to interpret that sort of visual style into a film in a way that I think has been tried before but it's never, it always looks like it's a little too on the nose, it looks like, "Oh, they're shooting a comic book movie." and I wanna try something a little bit different.

Have you nailed down what some of the big set pieces might be yet?

Johnston: Yes. We have. Right now it's , we have to sort of pick our battles because it's a little more than we can afford right now. But there's some great action sequences.

When you have an iconic character like that, is it more about finding the right person or are Marvel and others saying, "We need a big star."

Johnston: No. we're looking for a complete unknown.

So this is not going to be a big movie star taking this part.

Johnston: I hope not. I hope it'll be somebody that we discover and has never been, has probably been in something, but you won't know who he is. You won't recognize him. And we';ll surround him with more prominent names. That's who we're looking for. Will we find him? I don't know. It's tough.

Do you know when the goal is to have the casting done?

Johnston: March 1st.

And as an added bonus he also confirmed that the villain will be Red Skull.

So what are peoples thoughts?

Captain America is an O.G. Too early to tell about the movie, actors haven't even been chosen for it.

Some more info from the director

Newsarama has released their interview with Joe Johnston revealing a bit more for the First Avengerhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/mag-glass_10x10.gif (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#). Check It Out:

'What little is known about "The First Avenger: Captain Americahttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/mag-glass_10x10.gif (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#)" is that it will be set in World War II, around the time of Pearl Harbor. Johnston told Newsarama that he is well aware of the potential risk in shooting a big-budget comic book period piece, but believes it's a story the fans will appreciate seeing unfold onscreen.

"You couldn't do a modern-day Captain America," Johnston said, "and then go back and tell the World War II origin story."

The film will be bookended with scenes set in the present day that presumably will set the stage for "The Avengers" movie.

"That's the way this story ends. [Cap] is...at the end of this film, he's been brought back and been unfrozen, revived and he is definitely a fish out of water. He's a 1942 guy in 2012...it's going to be a lot of fun."

Johnston pointed out that Cap's lack of superpowers are part of what makes him such a compelling character.

"He can die, he can be injured, you know, he can't see through walls and fly and do any of that stuff, we have some great action sequences that stay within the laws of physics...but he's not Superman."

Johnston, who prefers Ed Brubaker's current run on the series to the Cap stories of the 1960s and 70s, admits he wasn't a huge fan of the character or of comic books in general. But he believes that will serve him well on this project.

"I don't think you necessarily want the world's biggest Captain America fan to be directing this film," he said.

Johnston mentioned that one reason he wanted to do the origin story first was because the sequels would take place in the present day. That would indicate that the 'fish out of water' (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#) story element mentioned earlier will play a prominent role.

The First Avenger: Captain Americahttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/mag-glass_10x10.gif (http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/#) is the pivotal piece in the entire Marvel movie puzzle. For an Avengers movie to succeed, Cap has to be a multiplex hero. Which is why it's not surprising to hear Johnston say the movie will feature links to the rest of what will become the Marvel Universe's most renowned super-team.

"We have stuff in our movie that relates to Thor, and we have stuff that relates to Iron Man and the fun is integrating it into the story. If you're a fan, you'll get it and you'll recognize it. If you're not a fan, it just becomes part of the story. We're sort of integrating 3-4 things that are links to the rest of the Marvel Universe. It’s not really difficult. The challenge is to make it seamless, and so it doesn't feel out of context."

Joe Johnston has let out a lot at the press conference yesterday, including casting, locations, costume, and the villain. Well now over at CHUD (http://chud.com/articles/articles/22433/1/CAPTAIN-AMERICA039S-INTERNATIONAL-CO-STARS-THE-INVADERS/Page1.html), editor, Devin Faraci, reveals his conversation with Joe, featuring The Invaders.

"Yesterday I talked with The First Avenger: Captain America director Joe Johnston at the press day for The Wolfman, and he revealed to me that The Invaders were going to be a major presence in the film. 'They'll be in the entire second half,' he said.

Johnston also told me that The Invaders will be six members strong, so if you add Bucky and the Red Skull The First Avenger: Captain America might very well feature nine costumed characters, surely some kind of a record outside of a straight up team franchise like X-Men.

Earlier during the press conference Johnston had said that his Captain America would be played (hopefully) by a newcomer and that he would surrounded by name actors. Could The Invaders be roles for better known actors? The European team is definitely included as a way to sell a movie with Captain America overseas (Feige said as much at Comic Con), so why not throw some name actors in there?

Who will be on The Invaders? Johnston wouldn't say, but here are some possibilities, based on the comics"

02-09-2010, 11:08 AM
It'd be sweet if the Falcon is in the movie.

02-09-2010, 11:15 AM
If the Falcon were to appear, it wouldn't be in this first film seeing as it's set predominately during WW2.

Captain America Casting Update
Source: Heat Vision, Deadline New York
March 9, 2010

On Tuesday, Fox 411 reported that John Krasinski is the frontrunner for The First Avenger: Captain America, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Both Heat Vision and Deadline New York have received an update on who Marvel Studios is looking at now for the coveted role. According to them, Wilson Bethel (HBO's "Generation Kill," "The Young and the Restless"), Mike Vogel (Cloverfield), Chris Evans ("Fantastic Four" movies) and Garrett Hedlund (upcoming Tron Legacy) are reading for the role, have tested or have received test offers.

Actors previously reported as testing including Krasinski, Michael Cassidy, Chace Crawford, Scott Porter and Patrick Flueger are no longer under consideration, say the sites. The part calls for a nine-picture deal, the second of which would be The Avengers.

To be directed by Joe Johnston, The First Avenger: Captain America is scheduled for a July 22, 2011 release.

Is Hugo Weaving (Mr Smith from Matrix) set to play Red Skull?...

Marvel Studios has zeroed in on Hugo Weaving to play the villainous Red Skull in “Captain America.”
Joe Johnston is directing the movie, which remains in search of the actor to play Steve Rogers, Captain America’s alter ego.

In the Marvel comics, Red Skull has been Captain America’s archenemy since 1941, when he engaged in espionage and sabotage as Hitler’s right-hand man. In his final battle with the superhero, he was buried under the rubble of a bombed building but — as would occur later with Captain America — fell into a state of suspended animation. Both were revived in modern times.

Interesting choice I say.

03-12-2010, 07:35 PM
sounds cool...weaving that is

<H3 class=entry-header>Chris Evans offered role of Captain America (exclusive)

http://reporter.blogs.com/.a/6a00d83451d69069e20120a95707ec970b-800wi (http://reporter.blogs.com/.a/6a00d83451d69069e20120a95707ec970b-pi) Chris Evans is one step closer to the role of Captain America.
Sources tell us the actor, who once donned superhero garb in two "Fantastic Four" movies, has been offered the role of Captain America.
Marvel has not confirmed the development and CAA, which reps the actor, declined to comment.

Evans' offer would include starring in up to three "America" movies plus "The Avengers" movies and appearances in several other Marvel movies. While an offer to star in "America" may seem like something you don't have to mull over too long, one possible complication is that Evans is committed to co-starring in the Anna Faris romantic comedy "What's Your Number?" Both are scheduled to shoot this summer.
The role of Captain America and his alter ego Steve Rogers has been one of the most heavily scrutinized parts by the industry, the media and the comic book fandom in recent memory.
Evans wasn’t in the initial round of actors being considered, which for the most part leaned to the newcomer side. Michael Cassidy, Patrick Flueger, Scott Porter, Wilson Blethel and Mike Vogel, on top of John Krasinski and Chace Crawford, were those testing and reading. Garrett Hedlund was also someone Marvel was interested in.
Evans, who did not screen test, already has a relationship with Marvel, having starred as Johnny Storm, the fire-covered superhero in the two “Fantastic Four” movies that Fox released in 2005 and 2007. There is some question whether fans would be accepting of an actor who already played a Marvel superhero just a few years ago, but given that the movies were not well embraced, with no one faulting the actors, Evans might have a clean slate with moviegoers.

Chris Evans!

Interesting choice. I know alot of fan boys are gonna hate on this due to him having played Jonny Storm in the Fantastic 4 flicks but lets be honest here, those movies were disasters and someone else is gonna remake them so hopefully we can get a more definative version of the Fan 4.

Marvel casting Chris Evans is quite an obvious FUCK YOU to Fox's Fan 4 films.

03-22-2010, 10:30 PM
After nearly two years of speculation, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on Monday that Chris Evans will be playing Marvel Comics' iconic hero Captain America in the big-screen adaptation.

The movie, titled "The First Avenger: Captain America," was announced in 2008 after Marvel Studio's first production, "Iron Man," became a box-office hit. The names of many actors -- from established stars to mostly unknowns -- have been rumored to be up for the role for months. Action movie veterans Channing Tatum ("G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra") and Garrett Hedlund (the upcoming "Tron Legacy") were reportedly considered, as were TV regulars Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl") and Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights"). Even wild-cards like "The Office" funnyman John Krasinski tested for the part.

Chris Evans was a late addition to the roster of potential leads, but he had already established himself as a comic-book hero by playing the Human Torch in the two "Fantastic Four" movies. This goes against director Joe Johnston's stated intention to use an unknown actor for the role. But Evans is an American, which was Johnston's other requirement (and left out foreigners like Australian "Avatar" star Sam Worthington).

Finding the right actor to play Captain America has been pivotal for Marvel Studios because they have grander plans for the character beyond the one film. According to Johnston, "The First Avenger" is an origin story set predominantly during the 1940s, when the red-white-and-blue suited hero first appeared in comics. But the movie will also set up "The Avengers" -- based on Marvel's long-running team series -- where Captain America will lead a group of superheroes that will include Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man.

While fans of the comics have expressed their doubts at some of the candidates for the role, response to Evans has been uniformly positive. His performance as Johnny Storm in "Fantastic Four" and "Rise of the Silver Surfer" were widely considered to be the best parts of those movies. It's been said that Evans will sign a nine-picture contract that could see him appear as Captain America in multiple films, both on his own and with the Avengers.

Production on "The First Avenger" will begin in the U.K. in June. Hugo Weaving ("The Matrix") is in talks to play Captain America's nemesis, the Red Skull. It is the third movie in Marvel Studio's pipeline, following "Iron Man 2," which is coming to theaters on May 7th of this year, and "Thor," currently filming for a May 2011 release. "Captain America" is scheduled to open on July 22, 2011.

In the meantime, Chris Evans has two films set to open this year, both of which also happen to be based on comic books. Next month, he'll play a Special Forces operative in the adaptation of Vertigo Comics' "The Losers." Then in August he will appear in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," based on the graphic novel series.

03-23-2010, 02:03 PM
Im at peace with that. He is very easily likable and his humor isnt bad either.

03-23-2010, 02:46 PM
I have no issue with Chris Evans in the role, im sure he will do a fine job and pull it off. It was an odd choice though and I certainly didn't see it coming.

03-23-2010, 03:56 PM

lol i am one of the haters.
10% about the fact he played another superhero in the same universe since, as you said, the movies were disasters.

90% because he's not Rogers.
he's not built like him.
doesn't have an acting bone in his body to give of the persona of him.
isnt even close to having as commanding of a presence as him.

he's not right at all. they should've definitely gotten a no namer.
i dig chris evans, he's a pretty good actor but fuck this.

03-23-2010, 05:43 PM
ben afleck would have been my choice

03-23-2010, 05:45 PM
or Ryan Reynolds

04-02-2010, 09:42 PM
Looks like Bucky has been cast too.

Sebastian Stan, one of the actors who tested for the title role of Marvel’s “Captain America” which ultimately went to Chris Evans, has nabbed the key role of Captain America’s sidekick Bucky Barnes.

In comic book lore, Barnes, a teenaged orphan, was too young to join the army but became one camp’s mascot. When he discovered Captain America’s identity, he joined Captain America as a partner in his Nazi-fighting escapades. The character died in Captain America’s final World War II adventure.

After decades of being “dead,” the character was revived in 2005 and brought back into modern comic continuity, initially as a covert assassin named Winter Soldier.

It is not clear if the movie version of Barnes sets up the Winter Soldier identity. Marvel would only confirm that Stan is playing Barnes.

Insiders also say Stan has signed on for five or six pictures.

Shooting on the Joe Johnston-directed pic starts this summer in Europe.

07-22-2010, 03:14 PM
Ooh this might actually be good. They went with the world war two styling which are my favorite iteration of his look, and made sure not to tamper with the setting I presume. My only flaw I see so far is that its being released May 6th instead of June 6th (D Day)...

Plus the Red Skull is a sick villain. There's something awesome about SS Uniforms and the red skeletal face smoking a long cigarette monocle and all is scary in that context. I think it would be sick if he was rewritten to have been possessed by a demon in an occult ritual instead of being a mask. Give him some degree of occult powers and make him like a better version of Darth Vader (impossible I know...) The terrifying man-monster who scares the shit out of his own men as much as the allies. The kind of guy you might piss yourself waiting for an audience with. Wearing an unornamented metal venetian bauta style mask during public appearances and claiming "severely disfiguring wounds caused by would be communist assassins." Then linking him to the future Doctor Doom in some way...

07-17-2011, 10:34 PM
Following up on last night's post, scooper 'KapoMonkey' has now given us a description of the scene you'll see after the credits of Captain America: The First Avenger. Read on if you don't mind finding out beforehand...

The after-credits 'scene' is not just a scene, it's the actual teaser trailer for The Avengers! Here is 'KapoMonkey':

The breakdown of the after-credits scene from what I can remember:

Steve Rogers is in an empty gym throwing haymakers at a punching bag before finally punching it so hard it breaks off it's chains and (I believe) through the wall. Nick Fury walks in and says something along the lines of "getting ready for the enemy?" and Steve goes "Well it's been awhile

*I don't know word for word exactly what they said. I saw the scene around 8 and I'm writing this at 1:30a.m. So yea I'm a little tired.

Then we see quick snippets of Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, Loki being escorted in "handcuffs" by SHIELD. After that it's a long shot of Thor rocking a new outfit reminiscent of his Ultimate garb (sleeveless) in front of some roundtable of SHIELD.

Then basically after that it's shots of action scenes with each character - Iron Man in what still looks to be his Mark 7 outfit getting ready to fire his repulsor beams, Cap in some sorta battlefield, Black Widow doing some flips and throwing darts, Hawkeye shooting an arrow, Thor summoning lightening, a shot of Bruce Banner taking off his glasses.

Then the trailer closes off with really quick action shots. Couldn't tell what they were, no actual clue as to who the villain(s) is/as we only see Loki. You don't really see a shot of all of them together though I could be wrong about that and missed it. Can't wait to see it hit the web and get some screen grabs.


damn I got screens to watch it on thursday at 10am and chris evans will be there, but I won't make it to san diego until friday.

07-17-2011, 10:47 PM
^if that's true, then that's awesome.

this movie looks hype as fuck too, has a real 'raiders' and 'rocketeer' vibe to it, hopefully it measures up.

07-17-2011, 11:21 PM
the teaser is out imma bump the avenger topic watch it before it gets taken down asap

07-19-2011, 07:53 AM

07-19-2011, 09:02 AM
oh shit,its comingg

07-19-2011, 11:55 AM
i have a feeling this will be the only superhero movie i actually enjoy, although i havent seen Thor or First Class yet.

everything else was too cornball for me

07-19-2011, 04:12 PM
Nick Fury says "Trouble sleeping?" when Steve punches the bag...

Steve: "Your here with a mission sir?".
Fury: "I am"
Steve: "Tryna get me back into the world?"
Fury" "Trying to save it"

Fury: "Think your the only hero in the world?"
Fury: "Gentlemen....your up"

07-22-2011, 02:43 AM
Just saw it and it was awesome. There were like 1 or 2 corny lines and sometimes it feel like they edited the action too quickly, but thats me nitpicking. what really impresses me was the way they treated the character of Steve Rogers, this movie can make you have more respect for the character and make you be a bigger fan of him

And seeing the trailer at the end in a good quality was awesome, people here were screaming and applauding.

07-23-2011, 08:21 PM
i saw the movie on 1st midnight showing, i wasnt too impressed, not sure why, i think it was the cheesy costumes for red skulls henchmen and the fact that wasnt so much action in it, it wasnt bad, but not what i was expecting... IMO i liked Thor better... but X-Men is top hit of the summer for me

I thought they handled the character well. The movie could have use better, longer action scenes.

steve rogers was too earnest and devoid of personality, should've injected him with more basassery like cap in the ultimates...movie was pretty cool though.

peggy carter was smoking.

I agree with this.

I saw it today and I must say I enjoyed it a lot, besides a few geeky nitpicks I actually thought they did a brilliant job as a whole but like warpath said, it could have used some better longer action scenes. All of the "big" set pieces were just too brief and not really what I would expect from a blockbuster movie.

Overall I would give it an 8/10. I really got into it, they delivered on the Cap I wanted to see (CA is one of my personal faves) and I really liked the whole vibe of the flick.

i know, when it came to the final scene with nick fury i thought, "damn. caps a 90 something year old virgin." lol
cap ends up fucking her granddaughter in the comics though. better late than never i suppose.

movie was good, for real. i liked thor slightly better, but thats because it had more action than cap. they handled the character really well.

red skull was a bit of a pussy. always running when shit got thick. i had an issue with this at first, but hes pretty much the same way in the comics too.

and there wasnt the amount of action i thought a captain america movie would have. they still told a good story, just wish there was a bit more action.

the real high point for me was chris evans as cap. he did a great job. much better than i thought he would. not once did i see the smart ass from the fantastic 4 movies. he was steve rogers. he knocked that shit out of the park, for real.

I felt the same way about Reynolds as Green Lantern, him & Evans are stereotyped as smart wise cracking jackasses in their movies, there like 1 person. I was afraid those traits would come out with Cap or Hal and thankfully they both changed my mind with their respective movies

Saw this finally, pretty good but could have been better I thought.

I think the main problem for me was that this felt a lot of the time like it only existed to build up the Avengers film.

Think I'd rate the films so far in this order of illness...

1/ Ironman I
2/ Thor
3/ Capt. America
4/ Ironman II
5/ Hulk

^^^I wasn't a massive fan of Ironman 2 overall (although I did enjoy it better second time round) but thought Mickey Rourke did a great job which edges it for me over Hulk.
