January 31, 2011 - Captain America / on cover of Empire magazine

Scooped on Monday, January 31, 2011

Empire magazine devotes its March 2011 cover to Captain America: The First Avenger, putting Chris Evans in his superheroic threads on centerstage. Inside, there are quotes from the film's stars and its director, including this quote from Evans about the character he's playing:

"I think he's the ideal human, not just American. It's what being a good person is. Steve's managed to overcome all the shortcomings he's had in life and he does what's good and what he believes is right."

Director Joe Johnson has this to say: "I've always loved Raiders [of the Lost Ark] and the tone that it had. It was period but didn't feel like it was made in the period. It felt like a modern-day film about the period, which is what we're doing on Captain America. It will not feel like a war movie. It's funny where it needs to be and emotional where it needs to be and serious and full of action."

And Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spilled this insight about what led to the development of the movie's storyline. "Scripts had been developed that took place half in World War Two, half in the modern day and none of those scripts were particularly successful because the costume ended up overshadowing the man. So we finally said, 'If we could make a Captain America movie any way we wanted to make it, how would we make it?' Well, we’d set the entire movie in the past, in that period, with all of the Marvel trimmings. And so we made the fun, kick-ass Captain America movie we wanted to."

The Captain America cover issue of Empire is on sale now.
