Marvel's Editor-in-Chief discusses the upcoming Captain America film!
Let's face it, if you were Joe Quesada at Big Apple Con in New York City and someone asked you about the progress of the Captain America movie, you would probably hype it up too, right? This past weekend at the hosted Wizard convention, Marvel's Editor-in-Chief revealed that based on the outlines of the upcoming film's initial screenplay he has seen, that the 'Captain America' movie will set up 'The Avengers' movie in a really fantastic way.
The biggest fear amongst fans is the idea that the 'Avengers' franchise will stray too far from continuity. According to Quesada, however, while the films may not be exactly like the comic books, they will feel a lot like Marvel continuity.
Sticking with Hollywood, Quesada offered a brief update on "The First Avenger: Captain America," with which he's had some involvement. "I've seen a couple of outlines and an initial screenplay, and it's going to rock everyone's socks off," he said. "It's very unexpected, the kind of movie it is." Quesada added that "Captain America" sets up "The Avengers" in "a fantastic way" and also mentioned that there is an undisclosed wish list of actors to play the star-spangled superhero.
What Marvel storyline do you think would tie all these characters together and be a successful movie? Who would you like to see playing 'Captain America'?
It won't be the same exact continuity from the comics, but it'll feel very much like the Marvel continuity," he said.
