Marvel's Joe Quesada on Captain America: 'It's Going to Rock'

There's actually more to his quote than just that, but we'll get to that. As a reminder, Joe Quesada is the Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics. Essentially, he's the head honcho of the comics division who has a good say on the movie side of things as well (since he knows all of the characters so well). Quesada recently appeared at a panel at the Big Apple Comic-Con and Comic Book Resources was there to cover his talk. If you're a fan of comics as well, the entire update is worth reading, but I'm specifically pulling out his small update on The First Avenger: Captain America. He doesn't say anything new, but it's a good quote.

Sticking with Hollywood, Quesada offered a brief update on "The First Avenger: Captain America," with which he's had some involvement. "I've seen a couple of outlines and an initial screenplay, and it's going to rock everyone's socks off," he said. "It's very unexpected, the kind of movie it is." Quesada 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 star-spangled superhero.

I am excited for any bit of Cap news that we get, but it also kinda pisses me off that this has been in talks for what seems like FOREVER now and we still don't know who is going to be the face of America! So come on! Give us a bit more! In any case, it sounds like this is going to be quite the film - I'm hoping for a bit more of a period piece than a full superhero film (similar to the opening credits of X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
