'First Avenger: Captain America' is getting some Writers

by Joey Paur

As you know Joe Johnston has been brought in to direct Marvel Captain America film. It looks like screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will join him in helping bring one of our favorite superhero's to life. These guys wrote the scripts for both of 'The Chronicles of Narnia' films. THR reports:

Created in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon for Timely Comics, Captain America is the heroic alter ego of Steve Rogers, who is rejected by the Army for being too sickly and undergoes an experiment that takes him to the pinnacle of human form. Paired with an indestructible shield, he becomes a symbol of the war effort, fighting Nazis and villainous scientists like the Red Skull.

In modern times, the character starred in his own long-running comic series and also was a charter member of Marvel's superteam, the Avengers.

Kicking off with "Iron Man," Marvel Studios' slate of movies -- including "Thor" and the "Iron Man" sequel -- is building toward an "Avengers" movie set for release in 2011, in which the characters from the films team for one big adventure. "Captain America" is scheduled for release May 6, 2011.

Marvel's "Captain America" will be a World War II-set movie, and the character will appear in the modern day-set "Avengers."

This movie is coming together rather nicely. I can't wait to see who they bring in to play the Cap.
