Marvel’s Captain America movie, planned for a May 2011 release, will be a period film, set during World War II.
So says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who spoke to online journalists yesterday
at Universal Studios about The First Avenger: Captain America
and other projects.
That would seem to imply the movie will stay at least relatively true to the character’s comic-book origin, and tie directly into the Super-Soldier Serum references
in The Incredible Hulk
On that note, Feige confirmed
speculation about a certain object glimpsed in a laboratory scene from Iron Man
: Yes, that’s Captain America’s shield
He also provided a few more details on Thor
, saying that it will take place largely in Asgard, mythical home of the Norse gods: “”The film is not all Asgard, but it will be a big chunk in Asgard, yeah.”
Screenwriter Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend
, The Cell
) is expected to submit a draft of the script in a couple of weeks.
