There are few characters that solicit emotion like the venerable Captain America.

His death last year was profound. It struck a cord in all “Cappy” fans that had a lasting impression – that is until he “returned” to once again fight those that would challenge liberty and freedom.

News on the celluloid/digital version of everyone’s favorite shield-wielding, flag-bolstering hero recently is also very popular. Production on The First Avenger: Captain America starts in June, 2010. It’s reasonable to think that casting should follow soon thereafter providing fuel to the always-popular casting discussion that ensues anytime news like this surfaces.

One has to also wonder – will there be enough time to not only prepare a solid story and strong cast, but to concoct a solid rapport between content and cast?

To date, there’s been literally nothing concrete on who will don the blue halfmask and wield the shield.

Perhaps it’s a good thing.

After all, the program to create Super Soldiers WAS Top Secret.

The movie is set for a July 22, 2011 release date, so there’s never been a clearer mission for Cappy and the powers that be that will construct the foundational platform for a character who will be the center point for the launch of a series of upcoming Avengers films.

What are YOUR thoughts on this compressed timetable? Will the filmmakers be able to put the polish on the shield and the manthat carries it in time before the film gets underway? Discuss below.

  1. Punisher WZ was done by Lion’s Gate. Fortunately, Ray Stevenson by far was the best actor cast Frank Castle amongst the previous three but unfortunately Lion’s Gate was unable to capture the essence of “The Punisher” even though tried to emulate the “Max” series. The only way to redeem “The Punisher” is to CAMEO him in future “MARVEL STUDIOS” movies ONLY . In the future maybe about in another 10 years they might be able to do another stand alone Punisher movie.But until then they will never get it right until Marvel does it themselves.

  2. @Packy yeah your right, I forgot about that, Captain America does not experience fatigue so an all out hand to hand battle with no way for Batman to to escape or retreat, Captain America would eventually win for sure.

  3. The only Punisher movie I would pay to see anymore, is a big screen adaption of “Circle of Blood”. They commit that to screen without any of the cast or crew from any of the previous movies, and keep it produced exclusively by Marvel Studios, and I guarantee that I will be there for the first showing at midnight. No questions asked.

  4. The few who said Mark Valley were spot on. I didnt know who he was and did a quick picture search online and wow, the guy does look the cartoon.

    Whatever the movie creators do, I just pray they dont stick in run of the mill overpaid “superstar” actors, like Damon. (Damon is a creative guy and a so so actor Im not slamming the guy, I just want someone unknown I guess).

    As much as I like Ed Norton as an actor, he didnt fit Bruce Banner all too well in my opinion. (But then again, I cant see anyone ever fitting that role as well as Bill Bixby did).

  5. Still…. thinkuperma sees a lot more interesting, even just the mythology and villains o character’s…

  6. Sorry, I didn’t spellcheck lol.

    I think Superman sounds much more inteeresting just in the characters, powers, villains etc.

    It seems like the Cap is Batman without the cool characters and mythology.
    I mean, withoout the great villains and characters that make the story, Batman would be very poor and nowhere near as popular as it has become, no?

  7. It struck me that Captain America in modern times may not fare so well with the young crowd. Not only are his superpowers not cool enough, but more importantly the younger generations by and large have little inclination towards the patriotic or view anything positive about America.
    This movie will have to be turned into a typical action flick with no real focus on fighting for America as a force of good in the world.
    So, in the end, this would have to be set in the past in order for the movie creators to not feel bad or take the heat from liberal groups for painting jihadists in a bad light, or even the communist hold-outs in Russia in a negative way.

  8. @IntelliQ

    I have had the exact same thoughts about this film. They’re going to have to pull a hell of a hat trick to get this to work.

  9. To instill an American patriotic spirit in the film, we’d need a group of patriotic Americans writing, directing, and acting in the film.

    Who would be in this fictitious conservative dream team?

    Gary Sinise, James Woods, Tom Selleck, Clint Eastwood (as the skull lol), Ben Stein (ROFL), Chuck Norris (who could kill 10 Captain America’s with one foot while asleep), and Adam Sandler for some comic relief.

    Ok, maybe they could be geriatric Avengers.

  10. That may be good for you yanks but could the rest of the world take 2 hours or so of patriotism?

    I bloody couldn’t – I stuggled with the Independence day president speech!

  11. That’s why the movie will also include other international heroes.

  12. I couldn’t stand a 2 hour british patriotism movie. Any parotism movie for 2 hours!

  13. Garth,I am with you 100%.The days of genuine war hero like Audie Murphy becoming a Hollywood leading man are over.Mark Valley is the closest thing we have to someone carrying on the proud tradition of a real life hero playing a “hero”.American men have allowed themselves to become feminized and that has carried over the Hollyweird.We have to go overseas to find someone to play a man's man.Somewhere James Stewart and Clark Cable are weeping while that coward John Wayne smirks.
