Empire magazine has revealed the cover to their most recent issue that features Captain America on the cover.
The issue also goes into detail as to why the entire movie is set during World War II, instead of the split past/present idea that was tossed around in the early stages of development.
“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,” says Marvel chief Kevin Feige. “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.”
Empire magazine arrives in stores on February 3, 2011. Captain America, the movie, arrives July 22, 2011.
