    Yeah I think Joss reworking the script was mentioned earlier in the thread...really early on I think.

    Some 2nd unit filming took place at Trafalgar Square for Captain America. Apparently its scenes for VE day during WWII. Some photos can be viewed here of the period piece extras in wardrobe and a car carrier stocked with 1940 era cars.

    Union Jack?

    If UJ is in the movie, then I would also like to see Spitfire. Bring on the Invaders!

    the lack of casting announcements/leaks for the Invaders has led me to wonder if they got dumped or if the name was used for the Howling Commandos after...

    ^^^
    Now that the Invaders have been brought back up it does make me curious what happened to them. Are they still involved or did they get cut?

    In other news of a tidbit manner though.

    Stanley Tucci gave some sound bites on his character Dr.Erskine.
    Then of course there is the looming question that keeps getting asked. "How does Cap fit into this expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe?"
    Director Joe Johnston addresses some of that here.
    I'm not surprised of the Thor link(s). When Iron Man & Incredible Hulk came out both had direct links. What we know so far is the linkage with Skull and the cosmic cubes at a Norse burial site. So that maybe the link he refers to. Creating events that pay off later is interesting quote. I'm wondering what subtle or non-subtle things they may have in there that can/could tie into Whedon's Avengers.

    Nick Fury is supposed to be a WWII Vet who had his aging slowed if not stopped entirely thanks to a Super-Soldier formula knock-off called the Infinity Formula, SHIELD was formed to fight HYDRA (which the Skull is head of in this version), and since IM2 says that Howard Stark was a SHIELD founder I'm guessing what he sees in this film will lead up to the formation of SHIELD.

    if they go the Ultimate Origins route, Fury was injected with the super-soldier formula during testing before it was given to Rogers. a la whatsisname Bradley from the Red, White and Black mini.

    Howard Stark is supposed to have a considerable role in "Captain America" and I though the "Invaders" weren't going to be the Invaders we know? Could have sworn I read that somewhere...since we've not heard anything from them it's likely that Joss dropped them out during his polish.

    there was a story that the Invaders name was being appropriated for the Howling Commandos. that's not confirmed as yet.

    I could see them combining the Howlers and the Invaders into a single group.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the naming of SHIELD was 'in honour' of Captain America, like if all they find at the end is his shield.

    Maybe, and then they spend the next 60 years or so trying to find out how they can turn it into an acronym.

    nah, cuz in IM1, everyone's calling it Strategic Homeland Intervention, Espionage Logisitcs Directorate and at the end Coulson says 'call us SHIELD' like it's new.

    Hot on the heels of Emma Frost's stunt double and January Jones, we get Chris Evans stunt double

    you don't know how relived I am that they painted wings on the helmet (rather than omitting them entirely)
