Speaking with Fangoria about how he became director of The Wolfman, Joe Johnston revealed that the proposed Captain America film The First Avenger: Captain America is scheduled to begin production in June 2010:
Principal photography was now less than four weeks away. “By the time I got on a plane and arrived, it was three,” recalls Johnston, speaking from the art department of THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA, which he’s readying for a June start. “But at that point, what kind of difference can a week make?”
The First Avenger: Captain America is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22, 2011. Johnston’s next film, The Wolfman, hits theaters on February 12, 2010.
