While many may be waiting for those first official shots from Thor, the rumor mill has promptly turned its attention to The First Avenger: Captain America, particularly since Joe Johnston is all done with The Wolfman. Little tidbits have been popping up all over our great and wide Internet, and while they don't reveal anything very new, you can comfort yourself that the wheels are still turning.

A few weeks ago, Johnston gave an interview with Box Office that revealed his take on the character. "It's not going to be a Captain America that you expect. It's something different. It is influenced by the comic book, but it goes off in a completely different direction. It's the origin story of Captain America. It's mostly period-there are modern, present-day bookends on it-but it's basically the story of how Steve Rogers becomes Captain America ... He was this 98-pound weakling, he was this wimp, and he's transformed instantly into this Adonis. You'd think he got everything he wanted. Well, he didn't get everything he wanted. The rules change at that point and his life gets even more complicated and dire ... At the heart of it, it's a story about this kid, who all he wants to do is fit in. This thing happens and he still doesn't fit in. And he has to prove himself a hero-essentially go AWOL to save a friend. Eventually at the very end, I don't want to give away too much, but he does fit in. But it's the journey of getting him there that's interesting. And it's a lot of fun."
