Stand photos are beginning to emerge from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Among them is the stand for Captain America and some Hasbro action figures. Follow the link below to view the rest of the photos:
UPDATE: Joe Johnston, director of the film in question, gave an interview with the Los Angleles Times explaining what direction he is taking the character in: “We’re sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers, he’s a guy that wants to serve his country but he’s not a flag-waver. We’re reinterpretating sort of what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was.
“He’s just a good person. We make a point of that in the script: Don’t change who you are once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier, you have to stay who you are inside, that’s really what’s important more than your strength and everything. It’ll be interesting and fun to put a different spin on the character and one that the fans are really going to appreciate.”
I take this as Johnston trying to modernise the character in whatever way he can whilst also keeping it in the World War Two setting. Whether this will effect the overall effect of the period piece will remain to be seen. But he is keeping the fans very much firmly in mind which is a good sign, in Joe I trust!
The 2010 San Diego Comic Con kicks off tomorrow morning running through till Sunday.
