    Various excerpts from DarkHorizons.com about the scope of the film.

    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.

    Is he a blond haired, blue eyed guy in his twenties?

    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?

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

    He didn't say anything bad about Cap in the 80s, so maybe they'll use Mark Gurenwald's characterization of him.

    Yeah, I think he'd do well in the role.

    I also thought Chris Hemsworth would have made an excellent Cap, but he's Thor now.

    How about Chris Hemsworth's brother Liam?

    Is Sam Worthington overexposed by now?

    He inked this deal nearly a year ago when Iron Man 2 was going into pre-production.
    I think you just recall the talk of him not returning as Fury(for IM:2) and then *BAM* a few weeks later he signed the above deal. I tried a google search for 'Jackson out as Fury' and similar and the only articles that came up were the ones prior to him signing the 9 pic deal.

    Sam is confirmed for sure.
