Comic Book Resources attend the Big Apple Comic-Con and listened in on Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada’s Q&A at the event. While he wasn’t able to say much about Spider-Man 4, he was able to give an update on The First Avenger: Captain America:
“I’ve seen a couple of outlines and an initial screenplay, and it’s going to rock everyone’s socks off,” Quesada said. “It’s very unexpected, the kind of movie it is.” He 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 superhero.
Paramount and Marvel Studios are planning a July 22, 2011 release date for the Joe Johnston-directed “Captain America,” which will be followed by The Avengers on May 4, 2012.
Thanks to Screen Rant for pointing the way.
