'Captain America' Starts Filming in June

Marvel Studios’ “Captain America” movie may finally be heading in front of cameras next June.

Fangoria published a teaser piece for their upcoming issue that has an interview with director Joe Johnston about his upcoming "The Wolfman." However, near the end of the article they drop a little tidbit about Johnston's plans to start shooting "Captain America" in June.

Information about the “Captain America” film has been in relatively short supply since Johnston was signed to direct the film and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (of all three "Chronicles of Narnia" movies) were hired to write the screenplay.

Given that “Captain America” is scheduled to be released in July 2011 — two months after Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor” adaptation hits theaters — it’s somewhat surprising that the lead role has yet to be cast.

Marvel is preparing to start shooting "Thor" in January, which I'm sure will shoot at least until April. Then they'll probably take a break to support the release of "Iron Man 2" in May before prepping a June start for "Captain America."

It's great to hear that this is finally moving along, now we just need casting. Who will be playing Cap, that's what I want to know!

So which of Marvel's 2011 movies are you more excited about - "Thor" or "Captain America"?

More news to come! Catch ya' later!
