Cassavetes on Capt'n?

10.23.2007

Captain America Even though Captain America recently died at the hands of a sniper bullet and will soon be re-introduced into the Marvel universe as a gun-toting, black-pants wearing, similarly patriotic, and completely new (as in not Steve Rogers) superhero in the comic world, he's had a tough time getting to the big screen. However, we recently received some scoop suggesting that Nick Cassevetes, who was set to direct IRON MAN for a long time before Jon Favreau took the reins, may be looking to bring the Captain to a theater near you. It's not definite, of course, as the scooper only mentioned that Cassavetes' mother Gena Rowlands mentioned on some British talk show that her son was merely thinking about doing CAPTAIN AMERICA but if Cassavetes and Marvel are still on good terms and with the imminent Strike of the Apocalypse looming, this may happen quicker than anybody anticipated.

The new...

... costume design looks pretty lame, but they're keeping the classic for when they bring Steve Rogers back from the dead/outerspace/other dimension, so there is a distinction between the two charactors. Rogers will be back, you can bank on that. Nobody stays dead in comics.

As for a Cap movie, part of me says "why not", and the other part cringes because they will make it so PC and inoffensive that only 13 year olds will be able to enjoy it.

Cap with a gun seems a little weird, but doesn't bother me because, and for some reason people forget this, Cap was a soldier, and soldiers kill. He wasn't blood-thirsty like The Punisher, and would only do it when absolutely necessary, and it bothered him when he had to, but he would do it. He wasn't Superman with that code against killing. I liked Civil War's comparison between Steve Rogers and Frank Castle, stating they are essentially the same guy, only Rogers was shaped by WW2 and

That said... I'd like to see them take the Ultimate version of Cap (much like they've been doing with everything in movie form, it seems) and run with that. But this is on the fence...
