Joe Johnston To Direct Cap Movie!

Over on the Ain't It Cool News website, they've linked to an announcement that Rocketeer director Joe Johnston has signed on to direct the Captain America movie that's coming out in 2011. The Rocketeer is one of my all time favorite movies and is the closest adaptation to a comic I've seen in film. He'll do a fantastic job with Cap and the best news is the movie will be set in World War II. He got the period look down perfect in The Rocketeer. I haven't been this excited about a movie in a long time. I hope I won't be disappointed. I don't think I will be. Hopefully this scene will be in it.

That is awesome news. Like you, I thought Rocketeer was fantastic, so there's plenty of reasons to hope Cap's flick will be as good or better!

Pinch me! Man I've been wishing for a Cap set in WWII for years and to be directed by one of my favorite directors sounds super to me. Maybe they'll set the Subby movie in WWII also.

I agree, but I'll miss ol' Cappy's groovy customized van and flying motorcycle/hanglider though...
