Captain America Movie Plot Revealed

captain america 522 Captain America Movie Plot Revealed

The official plot for Captain America has been released, and it seems it does indeed take place completely during the 1940s, which I think is pretty cool.  I just wish the official title, The First Avenger: Captain America was reversed to Captain America: The First Avenger.

Anyway, the movie opens on May 6, 2011, and since The Avengers opens July 15, 2011, I have a feeling I know how Cap will end and Avengers will begin.  And you know what?  I’m cool with it–that’s how Cap went out in the 1940s, and how the Avengers found him.

Also, it looks like the original director, Nick Cassavetes doesn’t look to be attached anymore.  As you may recall, he was to direct Iron Man about four years ago before the film went back to Marvel, while Jon Favreau was going to direct Cap.  How about that for funky trivia.  I’m guessing we’ll hear a director announcement for Cap by either late 2008 or early 2009.

By the way, Jack Kirby’s cover to The Avengers number 4 is quite possibly the greatest cover ever.  I hope they show Cap kicking serious butt like in that most-excellent comic.

Captain America is tied with Batman as my second favorite comic book character, after Iron Man, so I really hope they create a great film about the most patriotic hero ever.  And who would I like to play Cap?  Colin Ferguson, of course, from Eureka.

Lastly, Cap will be shot at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach, California, as will Iron Man 2, Thor, and The Avengers.

  1. captain america=jensen ackles from supernatural

  2. Some of your choices look like Cap in the face. But one thing that is missing is the fact that Cap is huge. (granted not thor huge… but..) Cap has huge arms. Colin Ferguson has the right look in the face, but he is no where near big enough. Just like with Thor it would take a WWF wrestler to have the same body that Cap has. I think is why it is so difficult to find anyone that looks right. Might look like him in the face, but it is the body that never looks right.

  3. Mark Valley=Captain America.
    Should not be too tough for him to pack on an extra 20lbs. If Ryan Reynolds can do it for Blade; pretty sure he can.

  4. Captain has to be Matt Damon he’s a good actor, and as he showed in the Bourne Trilogy he can carry an action film on his back.

  5. If it’s Matt Damon, I probably won’t be watching it. Maybe Mike Rowe from Discovery Channel should do it… lol just kidding. :-D Next episode, Capt. America cleans the sewers…

  6. the only one i find to be appropriate for the captain america role would be Bruce willace. i think Will Smith would be a mockery of the character.

  7. I don’t know.I think Mike O Hearn looks like Cap so I think He should at least have an audition to see if he can pull off playing Cap. If he can then he should be cast as Cap for sure.

  8. Josh Duhamel should play the captain, he sorta looks like him and hes a good actor. If noone knows who he is he played captain lennox in transformers.

  9. I would love to see john cena play captain america. Cena already has the build, can do the fighting scenes. I just think it would be perfect fit.

  10. I think Jason O’Mara from Life On Mars would make a great Cap.

  11. Ditto on Mark Valley. His military background makes him a natural. Plus, he just LOOKS like Captain America.

  12. @ Nancy, he could very well work as Capt. America… Good find.

  13. I would go with some else. What about Daniel Cudmore as Captian American. He has the looks and he did play Colossus in X2 and X3 and he is in the Next Twilight Movie New Moon as Felix. I say get Daniel to play Cap. He would look good in the red white and Blue suit.

  14. I think Thomas Jane would be a great actor to play Captain America. He has the rugged good looks, the athletic build, strong character. I think he was really good as the Punisher, so being a super-hero should be a natural fit for him. In any case, I’ve been looking forward to this movie for a long time. I was practically jumping out of my seat when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was telling the general at the end of The Incredible Hulk that “He was putting a team together”. I knew from that comment what was coming.

  15. I agree that I think Tom Jane would look alright for Cpt. America, but disagree that he made a good Punisher… Ray Stevenson was a much better looking Punisher although the movie itself was pretty crappy…

  16. “I’ve thought about it personally and to be honest, I’m fairly convinced that Triple H actually WOULD be the best choice for casting as Thor. People knock him as if he can’t act, but stop and think for a minute about how much acting is actually involved in pro wrestling, and an actor can only be considered as good as the roles they are cast for. No one ever thought Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would be great in a Disney kids film, but he was really great. That aside, Triple H does look practically as close as physically possible as you could for Thor. However, lately Marvel seems to be bent on getting big name ACTORS to be leads. Triple H may look like Thor and be a big name, but acting has been an integral part in the success of the Marvel line of movies.”

    I couldn’t agree more mr.Joshua, triple h would be perfect since pro wrestling is 90% acting. while i think that Sam Washington from Treminator Salvation would be a quality Cap. since his new specialtiy is si-fi /fantacy movies. also i believe that Cap., Iron Man, hawkeye, and Black Panther with mabey wasp and black widow in it against enemies from each hero’s universe

  17. I ment Cap.,IM,Hawkeye,Black Panther,Wasp,Thor v.s The Red Skull,Titanium Man,Bullseye,Ultron,Loki,Grim Reaper for the Heros/Villans

  18. @noble

    90% bad acting…

  19. Mark Valley was born to play Captain America.He looks just like Steve Rodgers.He is a West Point graduate,a former Army Officer,and is a Gulf War veteran.He has the maturity and command presence to play Cap.The Cap movie is only going to be as good as the casting of it’s title character.The powers that be need to play this one smart.He is not going to cost you millions.(At least not at first:-)He is enough of a “blank slate” for the public to see him first and foremost as Cap,and when it comes time to do publicity for the movie.People will be genuinely surprized Cap is played by a real-life hero with “aw shucks” charm and real patriotism.Aaron Eckert?Jon Hamm?Jensen Ackles?Interesting that all these “manly man” types never took the time to wear their country’s uniform,not even for one day.More John Wayne(fake war hero) than James Stewart(Real Deal).

  20. Nah, he’s American, apparently we HAVE to get someone foreign or else we’ll be being too “close minded” or whatever… :-P

  21. Ryan Hurst has a good look for the roll…he’d have to do some work in the Gym…but he’s already a big boy and a good actor(Saving private Ryan,Remember the Titans,and now on “Sons of Anarchy”)He’s got that all American look.

  22. dude i love marvel comics ecpecsly deadpool but everyone loves captin america, he has a place in everyones heart. and this would be an insperashion to every one, even people who dont know who he is or marvel comics if you want to disscuss it email me at
