Marvel Readying Captain America

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed the company’s next independently financed project will be a new version of “Captain America” reports Sci-Fi Wire.

Mixing a period story with a contemporary one, the PG-13 superhero film is currently being penned by David Self (“Road to Perdition”) with a director to be announced shortly.

“We’ll have to play with Captain America as being a patriotic propoganda machine on one hand but also being a very human Steve Rogers, … [an] interesting, fascinating hero in his own right,” Feige told reporters on the set of “Iron Man.”

Shooting begins this time next year.
