We've got a director and writers, all we need now is the cast.

Both Narnia movies are totally stupid... well, there's a problem with Adamson and those kids so maybe their scripts aren't so bad but for me it looks like that we will have only another popcorn movie. Captain America is set in WW2 so there's a potentional to be something 'more'... but with these 2 guys and Johnston?

Johnston is perfect for Cap. The two writers are solid, now I think the actor will be the one who makes or breaks it.

I agree but I feel like that's the actors that make the movies just kinda eh. The scripts for both stayed true to the source material and seemed pretty solid. I have faith that Marvel won't mess up Captain America. What I AM nervous for is the Avengers movie.... I just read Zak Penn is writing.

I don't have a problem with a light PG-13... I mean as long as it ain't Spiderman light. It is what it is... it's not supposed to be Saving Private Ryan. There will probably be no blood other than a few cuts and scrapes... we may get one "s***" word if that... it's supposed to be a fun adventure movie. That's Marvel's comfort zone.

The first ones great. A more family friendly movie like Johnston has mostly done. So I expect Cap to be a lighter film, could still be good though.


As for the writers, not bad but there are better choices. I guess the whole idea of the epic Cap movie is going to be more of a popcorn flick.

I always felt that an awesome ending for Cap would be exactly in sync with the ending of "Iron Man."

Credits Roll:

We fade in on the Arctic, present day...silence...the wind blows; it begins to howl and rise as a trio of S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicopters land. Field Agents pour out of the choppers followed by Nick Fury (Sam Jackson) in snow gear. They approach a camp site, already set up...

SHIELD Agent 1:
Sgt. Fury...

NICK FURY:
Status?

SHIELD Agent 1:
We've definately found something...

NICK FURY:
Human?

SHIELD Agent 1:
Bio-Readouts confirm, sir.

Nick walks away through the camp...through SHIELD Agents working on drilling instruments and computer terminals. Fury makes his way onto an outcrop overlooking a large site of ice as a team of Agents begin to crack the frozen ground. We spot something...(the shield, a gloved hand...take your pick).

Fury smiles.

CUT TO BLACK:

That's how I've always seen the first "Cap" film ending, as a segue to "Avengers."

That is an awesome after credit scene... I prefer just the glove over the shield since the shield is too obvious. Then you open the Avengers movie with either the villain... or Tony Stark or Bruce Banner... then cut back to the artic and show the scene to completion.

Cap needs to end with an overhead shot of him sinking into the ocean and some VO by whoever the aactor is. Adding in a modern times scene kinda cheapens it, imo.

After the credits, having a discovery in the artic is the way to go. For those who don't stick around for after the credits, they see Cap sinking into the deep of the North Atlantic...

Problem with that is, if it is PG-13, having people think that Cap dies at the end, is a real downer, and I doubt that Marvel would do that.

I am SUPER HYPED to hear that they have writers attached (in negotiations) And a confirmed director. I'm getting excited about this movie. It seems like the ball is really rolling!

Cap should have a scene where he is found after it appears the movie over. It is a must for the movie.

I never bothered watching Narnia, started the first and got bored... Just seemed like a LOTR type epic for kids which apparently had a lot of Christian allegories.

But from what I heard it was wonderful, and Captain America will be a starkly different project for them... Going to be interesting to find out how they approach it.

Enough of this after the credits non-sense show the scene at the end of the movie. I like how TIH did it. But in Caps case just make it the end of the movie, this after the credit stuff has got to go some of us really have to pee

You are right about that not ending the movie with him frozen. An audience fully charged for what Cap does and thinking him to be dead would be a catastrophic ending to children and family movie goers. Even if the Avengers movie is only a few months after.

I do too. However, I think Cap should have a few more seconds of a completely black screen than TIH did. Then after the finding scene, roll credits.

This way everyone will see the scene.

There's no reason to pussyfoot around it - as far as all the characters within the film-verse know, Cap is dead. Why can't the audience think the same? Why would that be so catastrophic? Is it the first time ever a blockbuster's main character has "died"?

If they absolutely need to, they can show a new trailer for Avengers which opens with shots of Cap being thawed on a table featuring VO about him being found frozen in the ocean during/at the end of the credits. Didn't the LotR films do similar?

Also, I very very much did not like how the Stark scene in TIH wasn't at the end of the credits.

The more I think about it I would prefer either way. With Chewy's it would be more like the comics but with the other way it would be more family friendly which is probably what Marvel and JJ will do.

No one is gonna think he's dead when they see a trailer for Avengers before the film or a few weeks later.

At the very least you end it like X-2 where you see a shadow or figure under the ice... of course non-comic book fans thought Jean died in X-2... but you can be a little more obvious that's the point.

Beginning the Avenger with finding Cap would be great.

An after credits sequence in the Cap film could be Fury about to go out and get Cap and Stark is there too.

Stark says, "I'll be waiting," or "I'll just wait here, then." or something.
