‘Captain America’ Will Begin at it’s True Roots

Captain America in warAs The First Avenger: Captain America movie is getting ready to start filming in June, director Joe Johnston (Jurassic Park 3, The Wolfman) has given a pre-production update and talked about the plan for the big screen adaptation. Here is what he had to say:

We’re in prep,Rick Heinrichs is production-designing and we’re set up down in Manhattan Beach [California]. It’s the part of the process that I love the most. We have eight or ten really talented artists, and we all just sit around all day and draw pictures and say, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if we could do this?’ It’s that phase of the production where money doesn’t matter: ‘Let’s put all the greatest stuff up on the wall and [then later] see what we can afford.’

Johnston went on to say: “The film will begin in 1942, 1943 during World War II. The stuff in the ’60s and ’70s [comic books] we’re sort of avoiding. We’re going back to the ’40s, and then forward to what they’re doing with Captain America now.
