"I'd say within the next few weeks we'll have our Captain America."
Quote:

The First Avenger: Captain America director Joe Johnston told SCI FI Wire that they'll have their Captain America very soon:"We need to cast it soon," Johnston said. "We have a very short list, but we're still juggling actors here. I'd say within the next couple of weeks we'll have ourselves a Captain America, I hope."

He added that the movie is expected to start shooting at the end of June. He said, "We're getting ready to go to the U.K., it looks like." You can read more of the interview here The First Avenger: Captain America is scheduled for a July 22, 2011 release.
Various excerpts from DarkHorizons.com about the scope of the film.
Quote:

Paired with an indestructible shield, he becomes a symbol of the war effort as he fights Nazis and evil scientists.
Marvel's "Captain America" will be a World War II-set movie, and the character will appear in the modern day-set "Avengers."

In terms of "Captain America", he confirms that it's an origin story of how Steve Rogers becomes Captain America and will be mostly period albeit with modern, present-day bookends.

Johnston seems most proud of the fact that though the character changes from a scrawny weakling into a human Adonis, he has no superpowers as such. He says "He's an every man who's been given this amazing gift of transformation into the perfect specimen—the pinnacle of human perfection. How does that affect him? What does that mean for him emotionally and psychologically? You'd think he got everything he wanted. Well, he didn't get everything he wanted. The rules change at that point and his life gets even more complicated and dire."

Johnston tells Film Journal they're currently in pre-production in Manhattan Beach with Rick Heinrichs hard at work on the production design. "It's the part of the process that I love the most. We have eight or ten really talented artists, and we all just sit around all day and draw pictures... It's that phase of the production where money doesn't matter" says an obviously very excited Johnson.

Presently the plan is to begin the film's action in 1942 & 1943 during the Second World War, and "then forward to what they're doing with Captain America now... The stuff in the ’60s and ’70s comic books we're sort of avoiding."
Will there be a Bucky?
Ground work for Red Skull?

Captain America's shield was seen as an easter egg in the first Iron Man film.

Supposodly his icy body was broken loose in a deleted scene from The Incredible Hulk.

Just take away the lame "First Avenger" bullshit, and I'll be happy.

I don't know what this means. Can anyone tell us about Captain America in the 1960's and 1970's? What was wrong with them?

What? You don't think this'll make a great companion piece with "The Second Green Lantern: Hal Jordan"? :)

There may be more than one explanation. One I've understood is that during that time Steve was frozen in ice they had other Captain Americas(for the purpose of rationalizing the MU Cap stories). I think they want to avoid confusion and keep it basically Steve Rogers=Captain America.
In the 1970s, the post-war versions of Captain America were retconned into separate, successive characters who briefly took up the mantle of Captain America after Steve Rogers went into suspended animation near the end of World War II.

Possibly he just means they're relying mainly on the more modern comics for inspiration (by which I'm guessing he means Ed Brubaker (good) and Mark Millar (ehhhh)).

That's a very garbled statement, though, because he makes it sound like they're actually going to the present, when from what he says elsewhere it's all-World War II (apart from a framing sequence).

What is this about him not having super-powers? He has super powers! He has super strength, invulnerability, healing to some degree... doesn't he?!

It depends upon your definition of superpowers. IIRC, the serum gives him peak human physical abilities in all areas. Since they're still human abilities, maybe they're not technically "superpowers". OTOH, if someone gave me a serum that allowed me to run the 100 meter dash in 9 seconds, I'd consider that somewhat "super". Plus, yeah, I did hear that the serum gives him extra endurance and extra healing.

Hair and eye color don't matter. That's what dyes and contact lenses are for . . . .

Ryan McPartlin (from the series Chuck) would seem to be one of the top rumored candidates for the role.

Don't forget the lense filters. Or do they use CGI for that now?

Nick Fury: Samuel L. Jackson

Has that been confirmed, though? There has been talk that Jackson might not come back as Fury.
