With his film 'Captain America: The First Avenger' poised to open on July 22, director Joe Johnston is talking about the first time he made a retro comic-book movie: 1991's 'The Rocketeer.'

In an interview with FilmJournal, Johnston says, "I'd love to make a sequel to 'The Rocketeer.' The film didn't do as well at the box office as we all hoped, but it has endured and generated a following."

The jet-pack-wearing hero who battles Nazis was played by a young Bill Campbell; Jennifer Connelly and Timothy Dalton co-starred.

"It was great fun and I'd love to re-explore Cliff Secord's world," Johnston says of the character based on the comics of Dave Stevens.
