Awesome! News!

Zombie Jesus for the the EPIC WIN!
 
My Dad is a HUGE Captain America fan and he honestly doesn't like the fact that he's not blonde like in the comics.  While I don't think it's that big of a deal, I can understand a hardcore fan's reservations about a character trait being changed.

I think Chris Evans is going to be perfect as Cap.

The live show is for everyone....? This is the best thing I've heard all week!

Woooo Babs.....yeeeah

Posted by Joeybagad0nutz

I find Zombie Jesus kinda of offensive. But, one of my strongest opinions about America is that Americans are to goddamn senestive and should learn to deal with stuff rather then get upset about it. So, that is what I'm going to do lol.

Oh for the love of Pete. Why do they have to touch the Indiana Jones movies. I love those films. I still have a poster on my wall from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
 
Chris Evans doesn't looks too bad as Captain America. I'm more willing to give him a shot at that role then who is playing Emma in that First Class movie.
 
Not sure if I will be able to join the Live Show today, despite it being open to everyone. 4PM your time is 7PM my time and I might be going out tonight. I'll have to see.

I think the Cap costume looks better than I ever thought it could.  I was worried there for a little while, but at the very least, it seems like Evans will look the part of Steve Rogers. 
I hope I can remember to watch the Happy Hour show today, for it will be my chance to see what I have been missing!

But bring on the Zombie Jesus and Walking Dead!

Wow... CAP!!

"Zombie Jesus" is only offensive in that it's the laziest joke in the book.  "Jesus smoking!"  "Jesus riding a dinosaur!"  "Jesus is gay!" lolololololololol! 
 
It appeals to people who (like in these comments) constantly and arbitrarily spout off "Epic fail!"  It's not like any of it is really funny, it's just the mandatory thing-to-say-when-you're-on-the-internet-and-can't-control-your-own-opinions.  Want to "stick it to the man?"  Jesus joke!  But this is Liefeld.  It's the establishment posing as disestablishment, while consumers are none the wiser.

Wow, he really fits the bill (though I against him at first)

Posted by RLAAMJR

What ever happened to Liefield's other comic strip?

Pretty sure that was the guy who invented Comic Vine, and I guess you haven't seen our office? It's probably the coolest work space, ever.

Babs could eat 10 bags of candy and still not show it...

@Bloodstonefreak:  There have been a lot of pictures released in which Chris Evans is at least somewhat blond, and definitely blue eyed. In some, his hair looks darker than others, but overall it will probably be blondish. For some reason for this cover, they changed his eye color to brown, and apparently made his hair darker. Idk why, but I don't work in the magazine industry, so who knows.  Go HERE  (latest ones) and HERE, HERE (older set pictures) for more pictures of Chris Evans as Cap.

Evans does look the part at the moment... but he needs the mask!!!! (yup wings and all)

Posted by Shock Tower

Chris Evans, once you have played a super hero shouldn't that kind of rule you out of playing another?

Posted by Lustwish

Always a pleasure! good job.

I think people need to get over the look of Chris Evans as Captain America being "soooooo good". 
 
For those unaware, Joe Johnston is an aficionado when it comes to design and wardrobe during the 1920s to 1950s period.  This is one of the reasons why he was so hardcore about the design process on The Rocketeer.  Therefore, it was a no-brainer that he would nail the LOOK of the period. 
 
The issue at hand is whether he can make A GOOD MOVIE.  Chris Evans hasn't necessarily proven himself as an actor in anything that I can think of (although he was probably the most entertaining part of Scott Pilgrim outside of Thomas Jane and Brandon Routh).  It's at least good to hear in that interview he did with EW that he knows that as well! 
 
Johnston is responsible for abominations like Jurassic Park III, Hidalgo, The Wolfman...and The Pagemaster.  The dood is not a good director.  He knows visual design pretty well - he is the man responsible for Yoda and Boba Fett, after all.  It doesn't mean that he needs to be behind the camera. 
 
I have high hopes that Captain America will be the movie that changes this whole trend of mediocrity that he has.  I'm not expecting that to happen, though.

hey did anyone else knew that Natalie Dormer from Tudors is going to be in Captain America?

Posted by Dirty__1

I'm starting o like Evans as Cap more as this goes on. 
 
Please PLEASE don't screw up Runaways with crappy cameos from other Marvel characters just to try an connect it to the rest of the Marvel U. I'd love to see a Runaways movie but not if they half ass it. 
 
Indy in 3-D...... no no no.... I'm so tired of 3-D movies I was really happy to hear the new Batman movie will not be in 3-D!

Not offensive for Zombie Jesus, just tasteless.
