Captain America is one of the most famous superheroes from Marvel Comics. So a movie dedicated to the patriotic hero is but a long overdue!
Thanks to the recent success of Iron Man, Marvel has finally enough guts to undertake a new Captain America movie and is ready to provide with the cash required to make the film a blockbuster.
Nothing has really surfaced yet about the director and the cast. But scriptwriter Zak Penn who worked on the Incredible Hulk has been selected to write the screenplay of Captain America.
The movie, titled The 'First Avenger: Captain America', is slated a for a May 2011 release.
