Captain America: The First Avenger

(July 22, 2011)

Joe Johnston will direct The First Avenger: Captain America that has been delayed from May 6, 2011, to July 22, 2011 due to the fact that Spider-Man 4 is set to be released by Sony (through its license deal with Marvel) on May 6, 2011.

A young WWII mild-mannered soldier named Steve Rogers volunteers for a US Army special Super Solider program. Donning the colors of the American Flag, Captain America leaps into the hearts and souls of every American and brings justice and hope to a war-weary nation.
