Director Joe Johnston, whose next film The Wolfman hits theaters on February 12, revealed to Fangoria that Marvel Studios is planning a June start for The First Avenger: Captain America. The start is mentioned in an article on Johnston taking over as director for The Wolfman:
Principal photography was now less than four weeks away. “By the time I got on a plane and arrived, it was three,” recalls Johnston, speaking from the art department of THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA, which he’s readying for a June start."
Paramount Pictures will distribute The First Avenger: Captain America on July 22, 2011. No cast members have been announced yet.
O-dogg says: cast the character already ... unless of course they're thinking about some 40-yr old burnout like Matthew MacWhatsHisFace ... in that case take your time, Marvel. Pick the right guy ... a young guy somewhere in the 20-28 yr old range that can truly play Steve Rogers as closely as he is supposed to be in the origin story.
